    there's not that many games, due to low userbase. cyclic problem
    finally any new medium needs freedom. there's no "flash player studio VR" to enable tons of experimental fun stuff made by autistic loners en masse

    and the fact that it's still just a camera strapped to your head and the wands don't feel that great doesn't do it any favors either.

        I think the oculus rift is $400. My father bought Samsung Gear VR headsets for the kids when the hype was starting about VR. I feel bad as they just sit up on a shelf in the living room still in their boxes. I mean there's nothing to do on them. You play a day or two and then you either fork over money to play a few more days or it's done. Makes me feel guilty every time i see them. VR should have been interlinked with the games. What a bunch of fgtry

    VR is not dead in the least, but the fucking garden gnome zuck has progressed and regressed at the same time it's moment to shine.

    They're will always be VR there is no escaping it, maybe if it was still like the shit like google cardboard or samsung gear that era is dead and gone.

    Headsets will only get more advanced and now were leaning into AR/VR hybrids which make way more sense considering AR has it's uses as well.

    If anything shit like the VRCHAT community will keep this shit alive and keep pushing the boundaries of what weird shit you can do in VR.

          It's uncomfortable.

          Imagine coming home from work, wanting to play some video games, and you strap on a clunky as fuck headset that digs into your face.

          Until VR becomes as lightweight as daily wear glasses, it's dead in the water.

          Also a non-insignificant percent of the population will always have motion sickness with VR, meaning the market appeal is limited.

          >Imagine coming home from work, wanting to play some video games, and you strap on a clunky as fuck headset that digs into your face.

          That's been the issue I've been having honestly. If you're tired you're not going to want to stand up and waggle your arms. Maybe you don't have enough space to move. The face gasket gets dirty no matter how many washes or protectors you take it through.

          It doesn't help that the games are pretty damn awful, Valve showed exactly how a VR FPS should play like, what design considerations there must be, and they're still releasing shovelware.

              Should've clarified, mine's porous. I guess silicone would be better, it'd get slick but at least it wouldn't manifest that smell after a while. But at this point I don't even know if I want to get a new gasket for it considering how little I've played it lately.

            Its like exercise for me, fun once you start but you could spend hours doing everything else before because you know you'd otherwise pause it and abandon it. There's not much entertainment layering, its absolute focus, no looking at the time, no phone, no TV in the background. Its fun, but its hard to start.

    No killer app that sells systems. Cost isn't really an issue if there's shit everyone just has to play, like how games like Tomb Raider, Unreal, Quake, MechWarrior 2, and others got people to splash out on whole new systems with 3D accelerators, which were not cheap. The PSX had Toshinden, N64 had Mario and Starfox, etc. When you go further back the same was true for every piece of gaming hardware that got popular.

    Alyx is the closest thing VR has had was Alyx, but it wasn't it. It really didn't help that VR hardware was unavailable because of the coof. That may have even been the biggest problem. VR could have gone huge while everyone was staying inside, but there were no headsets available for people to buy. Now that moment has passed, and opportunity along with.

    It didn't fail and won't. It's just very young. There are maybe five actual games you can play that aren't just walking simulators. Eventually people will develop and make more fun games.

    And it's not expensive, no more than video games. I bought my headset around christmas last year for $150 because it was on sale. I've been nothing but coomgaming with it since.

    I won't get VRchat though, I might be a degenerate who is enjoying looking at eight foot tall horsewoman in maid outfits, but I refuse to engage with the actual community of this. I'm not that mentally ill.

          Literally after going vr I don't even see what the appeal on flat with controllers was. Tried to go back before but its all super lame now. Hard to get excited for an fps that you dont physically aim and look around. Pressing a button on a gamepad is just not exhilarating anymore. Plus even with my entire wall as my screen (projector) playing flat games feels tiny like I'm trying to play on a cell phone. That's the real reason why devs are so scared and like to pretend "vr is dead"

    Expensive peripheral which requires good hardware to even use and a space to use it in. It also has no games, I don't care if you list 10 good VR games, or even 100 total games (which will be including ports), there are tens of thousands of thousands of non VR games. Vastly limiting in the types of games you can make for it too due to the input and first person setting.

      Why do you still care about videogames as a whole? We have been through a number of different innovations and we are still not at the point you are describing. You could apply the same reasoning to 3D graphics for example, so why care about it over 2D games if it can't make you feel like you are literally there? In the end, your VR spiderman game does feel better than playing normally since being able to see depth and scale give a better sense of speed. Being able to intuitively aim both hands at the same time also gives you much better control allowing for more realistic physics based movement rather than many of the current spiderman games that just fake it. It improves the experience and makes the game fun, so it is still worthwhile even though we still haven't reached your unrealistic expectations.

      No, not that kind of tech. Until they invent some kind of gear that takes at the most 2 seconds to clip on, and can easily be jumped in/out of, VR will remain the gaming equivalent of that fancy blender or grill that you use for a week, and then collects dust in a cupboard until you finally throw it out.

    No software, it's that simple. I unironically believe it can be brought back, there just needs to be good games.

    I think one problem is that the industry is laser focused on addictive multiplayer experiences right now and VR is best suited for singleplayer experiences that can be played in short bursts due to peoples' variance in "VR legs."
