I totally get the immersion experience that comes with VR. I've never actually tried a VR headset, but I've hung onto my 3D TV for that similar reason. I was on the point of splashing out on an Oculus Rift as the pandemic lockdowns started, but then the issue with the forced Facebook accounts loomed up and also stock was not available.
What's been holding me back though was, it is a lot of money to lay out and then find you really need to upgrade in 6 months time for better resolution or framerate, and then also to be sure of good Linux compatibility (and freedom from Facebook).
So this review article below is really promising, and maybe I'll restart my homework around VR again. There just needs to be decent games as well, to that give you that immersive feeling within simulations whether it be car racing or real-world simulations.
VR is one of those things that once you get immersed into a virtual world, you may not want to return to the real world...
See VR is absolutely insane, I am officially a convert and it works mostly great on Linux
It is time! I finally have a Valve Index with thanks to supporter Scaine and it has genuinely blown a few braincells away with just how incredible an experience it actually is.
