Hi. I'm 61 and I just bought a Rift S. I'll be down due to medical reasons for a few months and thought VR might help me with going stir-crazy.
My son tells me I may not enjoy it because of the "age gap" with the use of the controllers. He says that his generation (and later ones) were raised using video game controllers, and both the concepts and the muscle memory has developed over the years to become natural, but that the use of controllers is so foreign to my age bracket that learning to use it will be daunting (last game I played was Wolfenstein on my PC in the 90's using a keyboard)..
Is this true? Is there a way to work on just learning the controllers quickly?
BTW, I am a tech geek. I edit video for a living, build editing computer stations, am addicted to smart-everything, etc. So I'm not completely tech stupid, however I don't know how well those skills will transfer over to using VR.
