I love my Oculus Quest.

Beat Saber is awesome.  Star Wars is cool too. Dance Central really gets you sweating. Bait! is a fun relaxing fishing game.

I finally fired up Super Hot.  I just canít do it.  Fighting humans or humanoids in VR is beyond disturbing to me. 

Level 5-1 in Astro Bot is incredible, though.

Really? It's a fantastic mix of Matrix/"ballet" type of game.

Half Life: Alyx though, wow! One word comes to mind GORGEOUS! I mean it's the closest thing to realistic looking. Just fantastic! But I have to admit Boneworks game play has spoiled me. The physics with all its rubbery faults is just better than what HL has to offer, and the lack of melee is big oversight. I am constantly looking around every corner scraping for any mag I can.

Ya for me when I am playing Half Life I wish I was playing Walking Dead instead. As good as the graphics are... the game play is to simplistic. I have not gone that far yet but it seems like linear levels, Just one gun that you upgrade? And you need nothing in the levels except gun clips and these power packs that are used to upgrade your gun randomly hidden in the scenes like a kindergarten Easter egg hunt. Noting else you pick up is useful or works for anything... lame

Been a while since I visited this thread. Yeah Half Life Alyx is something else, certainly raised the bar. On the Valve Index everything is so clear and the game is fun as heck too

On the flip side, anyone fans of pinball?  If yes, any fans of digital pinball?  If yes, any fans of PC Visual Pinball?  If yes to all, then check this out.  With the Rift S, it's very clear but with the Valve Index, even the back of the table is superb.  I'm certain quality is probably comparable with Vive Pro or HP Reverb (that one is pretty hires!).

Some of these tables need a good PC to run properly though.

GOT7 Love Loop is worth a download just to see the video quality the PSVR should always be doing.  Might get a rise out of your homophobic friends, too.

I hated that Black Mirror Episode so much :puke. What a waste, it looked like they put a lot budget creating that episode as well.

Iron Man VR demo is definitely worth a look.  By the end of it, the controls were feeling very natural.

If you have PSVR, you need to get Dreams.  Full stop.

I've got to say WOW to the Astro Bot! Nintendo eat your heart out! I have never seen more entertaining, engaging, clever, cute platfromer!

I hope more quality content like this will come to VR, it's truly totally different way of content presentation.

BTW Pre-ordered HP Reverb G2. I hope it will have the clarity everyone claims it supposed to have. Too bad no improvements to FOV (they could've done at least 120į).

I pre-ordered the G2 as well. Definitely did not see that coming. If you would have told me HP is going to come out with a worthy VR HMD few months ago I would have rolled my eyes and called you crazy. Looks like they some how got Steams help for the build quality but I am still nervous.

Fanatical has an eight game Steam VR bundle on sale right now for $2.49.  Nothing great looking but several that look to be worth the low price.  Vector Wars and Panzer Panic look fun.
