It is essential to highlight that “to date” because when you review the news about virtual reality in blogs like VRLider, it is very clear that it is a universe that is loudly fast and what is said one day may well be invalidated the next.
For example, I thought until yesterday that meters in the universe of virtual reality could be very expensive, but I realize that the offer can be enormously, there are very complete and very expensive models of virutal glasses such as the HTC Vive, which is around $ 1000 and for which you will need a powerful PC; The Playstation VR that you can get for less than $ 600, and does not require more than you have your PS4, or the Samsung Gear VR that is in the order of $ 100 and only needs your phone (Samsung obviously). It is clear that the wide variety of offers also means a wide variety of experiences, but what I want to highlight is that it is not a technology that is so expensive that it is exclusive, if you can access a good phone to a good video game console, It may be a good idea to consider virtual reality glasses as a good accessory.
But these days I have dedicated myself to look at the games that are available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Playstation VR and I must say that I am fascinated, the possibilities of these games are impressive, the games that I am going to show you are in my personal opinion The best that these devices have shown to date:
The experience of playing this has to be great, observe near the end as one of the players throws himself to the ground and starts shooting from there, and within the game it could be seen that in effect his character was all folded to try to imitate the position that he had how fantastic!
Good memories with this title, it reminds me of some of the best game modes with the old Unreal where you had to move at full speed to score goals while trying to stay alive, this game is more or less the same, just that! with mechs! (everything is better with mechs) and of course you play fully immersed in the game.
A space combat simulator in virtual reality and set in the universe of EVE Online, this game is something that many fans have been waiting for years. If one observes the design of the cabin of the ship, one can realize that from the beginning the concept of the game included virtual reality, the player moves his head and can get all the information he needs, in fact the radar we have in Medium of controls is virtually unnecessary. Of course, if you have a joystick to enjoy the game so much better.
The first thing anyone who sees this game thinks is Super Mario 64, I had always thought of virtual reality games as first person games, but with this we see that platform games also work great.
Comment apart, can you imagine when Nintendo gets on the virtual reality train? (Virtual Boy does not count).
Another game that surprises me, Airmech Command, a virtual reality strategy game, strategy is a difficult genre, but as we can see in this video, it can be applied very well to this new medium.
Did you see the way the units are built ?! I want to see that in other strategy games, it’s a necessity.
100Ft Robot Golf
I have said it before and I repeat it again, everything is better with mechs, and the creators of this game have listened to me, took a game of golf, and traded players for huge robots playing in the middle of a city. What a great concept.
When Elite Dangerous first came out for the PC, it received a lot of terrible criticism, which was to be expected from such an ambitious game that it came out at such an early stage of its development (due to the pressure of the gamers themselves). But later the game has continued to grow and improve and nowadays it has become one of the best space combat simulators there is, and perhaps the best thing is that the price has dropped considerably (and if you wait for a much better offer).
Of course we are still at the dawn of virtual reality games, what we see now will be nothing compared to what we can see in a few years.
