VR Addiction Is Real.

I spent 36 Hours straight in the rift playing DCS World this weekend (I'm obsessed with the KA-50 Black Shark).  I wanted to call in sick on Monday just so I could keep the rift on. This is only going to get worse isn't it?

    I played Chronos for many hours and my neck was sore afterwards (I'm still using my DK2). A little while later, I kept thinking "maybe VR will help my neck feel better."

    Just wait until VR's version of EQ/WoW sees light...

    You should probably make a point of getting whatever you wanted to get done before then.

    Has Blizzard stated that they intend to support VR? Their UI seems extremely "2D monitor" based. It seems like they would have to do some MAJOR UI re-design to be able to use it in VR.

    I think he just meant whatever the VR equivalent of EQ/WOW would be not EQ/WOW exactly but whatever the equivalent game that probably hasn't been made yet that sucks people in like EQ/WOW did for PC but for VR. Like "Come fish for flip/flops VR" or something else addicting.

    I took a week off work the week before last and pretty much lived in VR all week.  I am ThreeDee and I am a VRaholic.

    My dad once did a dawn-to-dusk event in his plane. He had to use these quite extensively:


    Luckily, this was one product of the company he worked for at the time, so he had a plentiful supply! :D

    I don't usually get to play during the week. IDK what happened over the weekend but it was fun lol.

    @jon yea it's gonna get real bad, people are going to start believing they are some super high level wizard in real life, and get very frustrated, which will make them stay in VR even more!
