It's not "dead", it's just out of reach for most people due to the price of the headsets, then there's next to no real "game" for it other than technical demos and the cost of a new PC required for it is just too much as well.


Overall, it's not getting much traction because it's expensive as fuck and there's no games that would make people break their bank accounts for it. Until the headsets are cheaper and is feasible on a single GPU PC, it won't really take off.

I think VR is a pile of shit for serious gaming.


It's a cool novelty and what not, but it's really not what I want out of my gaming experience.





4K // R5 3600 // RTX2080Ti

VR will be the ways of motion controls once the newness wears off.

Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)


Currently Playing:  

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Games Beaten:

  • God of War - PS4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

  • Splatoon 2 - Switch


How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 82
  • Wii: 38
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 6
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 16

I still see no real reason to buy it tbh. Maybe a nice thing to play around with but nothing i would ever consider and especially not at the current price points.
