So my boy convinced me to get one, he was going on about how it was sooo amazing. I had a GEARVR that i would drop my phone in it, but aside from some shitty games the only thing that i really liked was the movie theater but the screen door effect was terrible.
I was in microcenter the other day and i said fuck it, they had 1 left in stock and i grabbed it.
Well well well...the quest 2 is a whole different beast. I hadn't used a VR setup since 2015 with the gear so its had a lot of time to get better.
First impression, blown away with the controls and how accurate they are. VERY repsonsive, and as far as i can tell pretty much 1 to 1 in movement. The screen quality has gotton WAYYYY better...while there is still a screen door effect, it's miles ahead of what it was and honestly you kinda get past it in games. It's still a bit low quality to use it for movie watching as the quality isn't mind blowing yet but passable i guess.
For games...it really is the next level for immerision. Now, the quest is stand alone so the games it can play is obviously gonna be some what limited, but it does have it's own fun games. So far the ones i've enjoyed...
Beat Saber--fun music game, decent work out if you swing it hard enough to be honest, it got my heart going.
Superhot - also fun and a decent movement game, i feel this type of game has the potential for some realstic matrix moments. It runs on basically a phone, so graphics are super dumbed down but the mechanics are there and are fun as hell.
I loaded up doom 3, it's a modded game but even so fun and if you look doom it's actually really well done. One hand controls the flash light the other the gun.
Now, big boy games...
Half-Life: Alyx is BY FAR, the best polished VR game. Graphics look amazing, the world is great, the mechanics work really good and just for VR experience, I hope this is where games are going. It's so wierd, i can't explain it, but it really makes you feel like you are inside the game. It's so much different than looking on a flat service and playing. I know the game would be the same, but the experience makes it feel so much more real.
Boneworks - simple VR game, also has decent graphics, mechanics are good but not as good as alyx but similar. I haven't played much as i grabbed alyx just recently because it went on sale. The potential for games with this type of engine is there.
on the side note, porn is also next level. It almost feels like cheating, also gives a surreal feel. Nothing like watching it on a screen, watching porn in VR is something crazy. There was one scene where the bitch is sucking you off, and comes up to you and wispers in your hear, i swear to god i felt like i was cheating. I highely recommend it, you can get some scenes online but the better quality ones are better to experience.
I wanna side load stuff but I'm scared of bricking the headset, the doom stuff I want and the Pokémon game looks amazing. The amount of sideload games is nuts.
