From GT reviews…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP-ls32Tq5I

Anyone here own that Occulus thing?

Heard it can be a pretty damn intense experience with certain types of games, like Alien Isolation or something.

I'm really keen to have a go. My main concern is how uncomfortable the headsets look. I can't wear headphones for very long before they start to bother me, and these things look horrendous.

I'm chomping at the bit for VR. Your machine is going to need some serious beef to play it, though. (And three USB 3.0 ports, from the sound of it.)

GameSpot played it with Alien: Isolation

Saw some Crytek's Oculus demo.
Spotted that minimum spec is GTX970.
The game is - climb, climb, climb. And climb. More climb. Nothing else.

Pathetic.

I'm pre-ordering an Oculus Rift as soon as it can be pre-ordered.

Same here. In addition I am still waiting to upgrade my PC when it releases.

Elite Dangerous Horizons now requires a gtx980 and I hope that when it releases the new pascal generation is already out.

VR has been a dream of mine since I have read Wolfgang Hohlbein's "Schattenjagd" like 15 years ago.

Only used the DK1 yet, but the experience was already amazing. Even with games and demos which completely sucked in the graphics and game design department.

For now the stuff I am going to check is:

Simulations:
Elite Dangerous
Euro Truck Simulator
Eve Valkyrie (now packaged with Oculus)

RPGs (still in Development):
Kingdom Come Deliverance
Frontiers

Demos:
Discovering Space
Dinosaur Island

Horror:
While I actually finished Amnesia I am not a big fan of the Horror Genre.
However a friend is creating a cool looking game which is made with VR in mind.

Also there seems to be already some support for VR in Minecraft

EVE:Valkyrie got a review on PCGamer (6/10):
http://www.pcgamer.com/eve-valkyrie-review/

I didn't read it in detail, honestly, but seems to me that the product is designed as a phonegame on a new gadgetery. No substance, only style. A turd in shiny wrapping.

VR is still a baby, we'll probably have to wait some more till something spectacular actually appears. Something that's so epic we'll all want to buy the helmet.

It is not FO4, it won't be DX4, ME4 nor it'll be Cyberpunk2077, all there are or will be normal games. But… How about mods?

Yeah, heared that from a different source…

That said I would say there is Elite Dangerous already, isn't there?
