Being immersed in the world and community of VR, as we are here at Road to VR – trying to gauge reaction from those outside the community is incredibly important. As the launch of Oculus Rift CV1 and Project Morpheus approaches, virtual reality developers are going to have to focus on the gamers rather than the enthusiasts or risk launching to a disinterested public.

With that in mind, it’s always gratifying and reassuring when those who aren’t VR geeks, come away from a virtual reality presentation not only ‘getting it’ but becoming evangelistic about the experience. That’s the category the above video from ‘Strength Gamer‘ fits into. He’s been one of the first to articulate his experiences at Oculus’ Booth and they range from universally positive to downright aghast.

We’ll have our own impressions from the E3 ground team for both Oculus’s and Sony’s show floor demonstrations very soon indeed. Stay Tuned!

Based in the UK, Paul has been immersed in interactive entertainment for the best part of 27 years and has followed advances in gaming with a passionate fervour. His obsession with graphical fidelity over the years has had him branded a ‘graphics whore’ (which he views as the highest compliment) more than once and he holds a particular candle for the dream of the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.
