Here's a video of someone wearing it and playing a scary video game. Be warned, Felix is not exactly G rated lol.

Wow that sounds cool. Has he ever won a competition?
I can't even look at the screen when my son plays. Some commercials cause it. It's frustrating.

Quoting goddess99:

My dh is a hardcore gamer, he even does competitions. There are some games I like but I'm more of a gamer who doesn't know what they're doing lol.

Motion sickness seems to be a big complaint with the oculus so you probably wouldn't be able to use it.

Quoting celestegood: No we're not. I take it you two are :) my bestie and her hubby are. It's a fun thing to do together.

I get motion sickness from looking at video games. There's a word for it but its so bad.



Quoting goddess99:

It is pretty cool =) Are you or your dh gamers?

Quoting celestegood: No but I'm sure it's cool

Mostly I just look away fast as I can. Although fresh air and taking a short walk helps.
It's a actually pretty common. It's called I think simulation sickness?

I think it's becoming more and more common these days as technology gets more and more realistic.
