    That looks pretty nice, though I'm not much of a flight sim fan myself.

    I'm optimistic actually. Lots of new hardware is entering the market, competition is stepping up, prices are dropping, headset sales are increasing.

    For me it's not about having a new game every couple of weeks, it's about incremental improvement (and sometimes big step improvement) in the hardware and software.

    I started late with computers but saw the growth from Commander Keen to Wolfenstein 3D to Doom to Quake then even more Doom.

    Now I think I'm about to witness the same sort of growth in VR. Good stuff is coming, I hope my wallet can keep up. :)

    I think the real question should be is what's in development? Good games take a while to develop and I would worry if nothing is in development right now.

    For me,

    This month has been all about From Other Suns.

    Next month will be Orbus and In Death.

    And 2018 is the year I finally get to publish some VR "business apps." With Oculus Go and Santa Cruz coming out this year as well, business applicability for VR is finally sensibly feasible. So yeah, I'm extremely optimistic when it comes to VR in 2018.

    I found this website which shows all best games coming soon:

    I'm looking forward to Resident Evil 7, Seeking Dawn, Megatron Rainfall, Transference and Skyrim.

    Oh and don't forget Sairento VR coming in February to Oculus store (already available on steam).

    I've bought so many games in the last couple of sales that finding time to do justice to all of them is my real challenge, not worrying about when the next big blockbuster is coming out.

    How Mechwarrior hasn't been release yet for PC I don't know. In a Multiplayer PVP this would be my goto game. I wouldn't want a flying Mech though because they are shite..

    They are working on Mechwarrior 5 and its supposed to be released sometime this year. I dont know if it has been officially stated that it supports VR, but earlier on a Dev was asked if it supported VR and his response was "built from the ground up".

    I'm optimistic about Oculus and VR for 2018. Oculus is on a hiring spree. That's about as good a sign as it gets. My guess is that Oculus is investing in other VR topics than entertainment. Personally the sooner this happens the better. We are finally starting to see some serious VR applications in non-entertainment fields such as industrial training, first responders, real estate and architecture to name a few. It took some time but it looks like it's finally happening. I hope Oculus has more plans than social media though.

    I guess if all you care about it games than 2018 might be a bit of a disappointment but I expect even for games it will be interesting.

    Im honestly more afraid about 2019-2020.
     Whatever games and applications are being developed now, most of them will see the day of light.
     However, if the current cryptomining doesn´t come to a hold, or gpu industry doesn´t catch up with the current demand, the increase in price of an overall system will bring everything to a hold for further development in new games for the average user next year im afraid.
     
    Be good, die great !

    Cryptocurrencies will crash when China floods the market with the product of their huge state-run mining farms. Then people will realize that they’ve been pouring real money into electronics to generate pretend money with no inherent value, and there will be a glut of second hand GPUs available.

    Mining comes and goes in popularity. The current GPU price spike is just that, a spike. GPU crypto mining was fairly popular all last year and yet getting a GPU wasn't an issue (unless that GPU was an RX Vega) until late December. Crypto prices are half what they were then and have been dropping fast and hard the past few days. Also, newegg and amazon have cards in stock again (actual newegg and amazon, not 3rd parties selling through them). Prices are still inflated, but that won't last. At current prices, it would take 2.7 years to pay off at GTX 1080 TI. I can't see too many miners lining up to buy them given that. ;)
