Oculus quest VR

Recommended Posts

So a while ago now I bought an Oculus Quest. (The first one not second)

I played beat saber mostly, did some side loading. Watched some YouTube VR exploration videos. Tried to get skyrim VR tethered on my AW17

Anyway my son stole it for a while and I havent seen it in over year or so and now he is moving out and wants to return it.

Has anything magical happened with these? some great game Im missing out on? Interesting hacks?

If you have a computer to to use the quest with, I highly recommend playing Boneworks. You've probably heard of it before, but it is a really, really fun game. I would say it is one of the best games I've ever played. The physics are great, the puzzles are challenging, but not too hard, and there's no rush for anything, you can work at your own pace or just play around with the physics if you want.

I have 2 Quest 2's, mostly the kids play on them, I personally find VR headsets to be in their infancy so the games aren't yet equal to just playing a normal PC game on a normal screen. That being said, I think the best game on Oculus with a doubt is Zenith, it's still in beta, but you get access when you buy it. It's basically an MMO developed specifically for use with VR headsets. I am a RPG/MMO junkie, so I may be biased, but I haven't found another VR game that compares.

I love Boneworks. I remember not so fondly how quickly I gave myself motion sickness with it. Eventually I did work up to almost 1 hour long sessions of jumping and climbing around but sadly I haven't touched it in over a year now. I should really pick up VR. I have a shiny Index sitting and waiting for me to set it up again.

I did a sideload of Quake (or maybe quake 2, dont remember) anyway the fast paced motion on that made me feel queasy real quick.

 

Yes I have heard of Boneworks. I will try that and have a look for Zenith. 

Thank you for suggestions :classic_biggrin: @HWI @Tenoroon @cucubits

I was going to say if your thinking of jumping in to VR a good start would be a 100 dollar oculus quest 1....nice 1440p OLED displays and works with steam VR

 

 

this is a general comment directed to people thinking of jumping into VR
