Nah, I remember using VR headsets back in the 90s at amusement parks and what not, it was a cool gimmick.
But it's still just a visor stappled on your head. No matter how real the graphics get (I remember using VR of real-life footage anyway, it was on-rails, you didn't have control over it, but the effect of the gimmick was the same), you're still just using your eyes and ears to experience the VR. It's a fad that will come and go, like 3D.

Until VR becomes undistinguishable from reality (like, connecting your actual nervous system to VR), it's just gimmicks.

Also, VR is useless on games that aren't first person. What if I want to play a sidescroller? I'd rather just sit back on the couch and enjoy it without having something attached to my head.

>10 years old
Wouldn't it be cool if games looked like real life and you could go anywhere and do anything you wanted?!!
>30 years old
Damn kids and their open world games. Back in my day we played 2D games and liked it that way!

That's a silly attitude to have... particularly for a retro games board. Brain jacks will be cool, but it's not to say a lot of the stuff leading up to them won't also be cool.

>> No.3871018

Bruh what's with those old shit games you play! They should remake them for Steam but
—change the graphics to unreal 4
—make them open world
—make them dark and with real physics like real life
—take out all of that unrealistic bullshit and give everyone a gun instead
So basically yeah, like every other game today, throw away your CRT and buy PS4

Why? it only makes sense. I'm old enough to have experienced the VR gimmick back in the 90s. Seeing modern VR headsets makes me go "eeeh yeah I've seen this before, now with PS4 graphics".

See, seeing shitty /vr/ in the 90's just made me more excited for when it would be good.

You could call literally anything a gimmick though. TVs are a gimmick, games themselves are a gimmick. Making Ecco and other classic Genesis games pseudo-3D is totally a gimmick but I love it. I love any way to make games look better, and even before we have holodecks or brainjacks I am all for this gimmick getting as awesome as it can.

Then TES happened. What a let down.

>> No.3873450

I was never stupid enough to think that focused 2D games should get bogged down with pointless filler like exploration.

I'm here to play a game thank you, not spend an hour climbing trees like a retard or building things.

This is why it's important to remember that different kinds of games appeal to different kinds of people. Not that I don't like a nice tightly focused action game, but I also love games based around exploring.

Yeah I mean, to me it isn't anything new or exciting, but I can understand how people might like it.
It has potential for POV porn at least, but again, at the end of the day it'll just be a thing attached to your head and you're only experiencing the "VR" through your ears and eyes.

That feel when you dreamed that games would look as good as in their intro cinematics

>> No.3878730

Not him, and even though I'm not that adverse to change, I can see where he's coming from. When a company creates one type of game, the opportunity for them to create a different one is gone. So if someone were, say, a big fan of the original LoZ for the NES, I can understand their apprehension over the series shifting towards an OoT or LttP style game. If all resources are being used to make a game you're not interested in and no one's making one you like, then you're losing out due to market demand.

It's like people who are actively upset at modern FPS games when it seems like they simply shouldn't care; the market has shifted away from their interests and now the type of games they like aren't being made anymore.
