Citam topic na neogafu i jedan post me je opet naterao da se zapitam - sta dodjavola vise cekamo?!
Everyone knows how much I loathe gimmickry. I pretty much never like 3D in movies or games, and had the same exact skeptical points as many in this topic:
● Goofy headset, no way that’ll take off
● Probably price prohibitive
● Gonna be a gimmick for a select few games
● Not gonna take off in a world that likes social experiences, since VR “isolates” a person.
● Can’t see the mass appeal
Then I waited on line with my friends and my sister, who hates games, to try out Oculus Rift. The entire time we ragged on the thing and how stupid it was going to be.
We put that “goofy headset” on, and experienced the thing. Each one of us walked away in stunned silence. When I finished my head was spinning with the endless possibilities this thing presents. There is no way to compare it to anything that came before. I had actual physical reactions to playing the thing, my stomach soaring with each dip of the flight. It made me giddy. All I could think of was how fucking sad I was I couldn’t immediately go to the store and pick one up.
We walked in some sort of awkward silence before exploding in exuberant enthusiasm for what the future means now at dinner:
My sister who hates games said something to the effect of how it was a little scary because she can legitimately see herself getting addicted to something like that, not just enjoying it once in a while. It transports you. It’s immersive in the way people have been claiming some games have been for years but obviously after this was never true in the first place. It’s absolutely mindblowing and we had trouble even articulating how amazing the experience was to one another.
It’s a conversation starter. People will talk about it over dinner. The second you play it it practically automatically converts you and encourages you to proselytize its merits to your friends and family, just so you can perhaps rub off just the tiniest bit of the experience you just had with those you love.
It’s going to change everything.
Morpheus, Oculus… Nije bitno, dajte nam NESTO. :headbang:
