I'd absolutely love to play a VR role-playing experience where you got to be a Judge and go around and police your beat in Mega City: arrest mutants, enforce ridiculous laws, get into gunfights with drug-runners, .etc. Full room-scale and motion controls. Instead of playing as a Judge you'd feel like you were a Judge.

I'll wait until 2018 to do a VR build. 2nd-gen headsets should be out by then and they'll be wireless. Content will be more mature, too.

It won't be gaming that makes VR take off. Gaming is a tiny market compared to all of the use cases virtual reality can satisfy.

The problem with using games to market this infant stage of the industry is that gamers think VR was made for them and that it exists only as a gaming platform, when they're dead wrong.

When you have VR headsets/glasses in hospitals for therapy and training, in universities and trade schools for training, in hundreds of millions of homes for shopping in virtual stores or watching movies in virtual cinemas, real estate websites where prospective house-hunters can have open houses in any home they want any time they want--you get the picture--gaming will be relegated to a tiny part of that ecosystem. But I think even VR gaming will be nothing like console/PC offerings in the same way that mobile gaming is wholly different.Reply

On the other hand, I think that some of your examples are more of a stretch for gaming, so gaming makes sense as the entry point. I've attended and been to large universities that still use ridiculously old computers in many places (and there are many other places that budget cuts have hurt), hospitals and stores with horribly outdated databases that won't upgrade because of the cost, and I'm currently house shopping and the amount of effort many realtors put into just taking pictures of the houses they supposedly want to sell is atrocious. Unfortunately not in my budget, but I've seen half a million dollar houses with no more than 10 pictures with bad angles for advertisements an minimal descriptions, because they'd rather you just go to the house (except I'm not going if your ad doesn't make me interested!).


There are definitely tons of possibilities but I think most in those industries are going to take a loooooong time to get anywhere near touching VR.

Crackdown 3 seemed interesting until MS pulled the crap where they said the environmental destruction was exclusive to the multiplayer. What a load.

I completely missed that story... Really is a shame, because we all know Xbox will happily advertise the destructive powers of MP as if it's the full game, when it turns out they "restrict" single-player gameplay too far less destruction...

"We’re working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year," they continue, "including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves"

No one cares about any of these games.Reply

Having played Crackdown 1 and 2, I'm actually interested to play through the 3rd installment. Both games got all you want out of consoles: an open world illogical game about blowing stuff up. Entertaining stuff when I was still saving to build my first gaming PC.

Also I may end up playing Sea of Thieves, that is if it reviews well and is available on the cheep for the PC edition XD

The original space bounty hunter concept was way more appealing to me than this nonsense.

Another dull, uninspired mess like their Dishonored games.Reply

Sorry, but you have to be very ignorant if you think Prey is a Dishonored clone.
