So close to Selling my Rift

     Gosh I'm so on the verge of Selling my Rift because of the lack of the kinda games I normally play, but on my rift.  I was so Pissed when they dropped plans to make Alien Isolation playable on recent rift editions, and even worse another slap in the face when the next big thing i looked forward to was RE7 and they put a damn timed exclusive on VR for only the PSVR for an entire fucking year!  
   Dude.. I just want to wear my headset like in Doom3 with my normal popular gaming.  No fancy hands motions tracking or roomscale gimmicky crap is necessary.  Just good head tracking and full geometric 3D immersion.  Mouse/Keyboard or Gamepad is completely FINE.   I want to play Alien Isolation, RE7, Fallout 4, GTA4/5, Skyrim, Dark Souls, Deus Ex, and more like that with just the improved immersion of smooth Head Tracking.  
    I might be happier with the PSVR since they seem to be concentrating more primarily on the gaming audience they already have.  The answer to save VR gaming for the time being seems to be getting the current games in developement that they already make good money on, to simply give us the headtracking element that makes immersion much better than just looking at a flat screen.   That's already a huge improvement to immersion.  Those that get sick won't buy but plenty of us still will.  There are tons of gamers in the world and just that little bit of extra immersion is worth it.  Hell i paid alot just for a better sound system with Surround Speakers just to have that better immersion.  Then when more people have headsets, we can experiment with adding more specialized game type that suite more niches.

My post was in General.. not is support of any other inappropriate section.  But I didn't look for a few similar threads to reply to and didn't find them.

And besides we need some assessment of how many people are unhappy, and why.  If there's a section for disgruntled VR users, I will gladly post there.

@XWolven which Oculus titles do you own? That might help with your dilemma.

If you are just looking for a Time Sink experience, then I would recommend:

1) Elite Dangers
2) Eve Valkyrie
3) Darknet
4) Airmech Command
5) Chronos
6) Subnautica



If you want to play Doom and Deus Ex style titles in VR, then you will need to go the Vorpx route:

The number of games they support is quite vast, and should cover your needs and them some:

The skies the limit with PCVR. Happy gaming.
