Editor’s speech | VR gaming was like nothing – my Meta Quest 2 became an expensive paperweight that I don’t do anything with

VR gaming has been hyped for a long time. In addition to expensive systems, reasonably priced devices have arrived in stores, such as Meta Quest 2, which I unfortunately ended up getting. Our relationship was short and fiery, nowadays we don’t talk.

As always with consumer electronics, I was waiting for the Meta Quest 2 package to arrive at home with wide eyes. The stylish packaging tickled the fancy and the even nicer looking device was immediately put to the test. The idea of ​​jumping into VR worlds felt futuristic. I went through the menus in my mind like Johnny Mnemonicand I was completely sold.

The future is here and I am a part of it, I thought. The best 350 euros I’ve ever spent on entertainment.

One of the greatest experiences was the space game End Spacen testing. In the cockpit, you could look around and admire the space, which made the heart beat. The space battles felt very exciting, although I soon started to feel sick. I was aware that there might be some nausea, but that should go away over time. It didn’t go away, but I was sure that the malaise would be overshadowed by the great VR experiences.

That didn’t happen in the end, and the game itself got boring surprisingly quickly. The seemingly beautiful space docking lost its initially fascinating luster, and the excitement of the battles disappeared faster than Back up talks about stopping drinking. I couldn’t think of any reason to hurtle back to the spaceship cabin.

I had also expected to watch the entertainment in a VR environment, but that too was a huge disappointment. Although Quest 2’s glasses are on the lighter side in all respects, they quickly started to feel heavy. In the end, it was tiring to sit in a virtual cinema with VR glasses on the blade watching and pretending to enjoy some kind of immersion instead of sitting on the couch with a sore neck. Lying down, I felt even more stupid. Why watch entertainment in a VR world when it’s significantly less enjoyable than in the real world?

Also, while watching the movie, I was thinking that it’s a matter of getting used to it, and I just haven’t discovered the genius of VR yet. And the same was true for writing assignments in the virtual world. It did work, but it didn’t make any sense because the VR gimmick made things needlessly more complicated.

I went through similar trials and disappointments with many other games until I had to give up.

You can’t do anything with the whole vektokter, because it’s hard to come up with something meaningful to do with it! In the end, I only used the device Beat Saberin for getting wet, because it was a really nice way to get sweat on the surface. So is sauna, luckily you don’t need a helmet to enjoy it. In our house, we have later thought about returning to playing Beat Sabre, but the chase that lasted more than a year has not yet progressed to action.

And the frenzy is progressing.

Of course, there were also good moments with VR, but there were unfortunately few of them. A Fisherman’s Tale is a great game as well Prison Simulator and I Expect You To Diebut 350 euros and the prices of the games on top of that is far too outrageous a pot to pay for such experiences, which you desperately want to like more than what they actually offer.

In my initial enthusiasm, I had convinced my friend to get the same VR system, and his experience was completely identical to mine. Enthusiasm quickly turned to despair, and from there to bitter disappointment.

Esko, I’m sorry.

In practice, I threw 350 euros directly into the fireplace, although even that would have warmed more than the dreary experience. Now Quest 2 has been a paperback on the bookshelf for a long time as a reminder of bad life choices.

But can VR gaming have some kind of future, I’ve been thinking in my rocking chair. Should I have gotten a more proper and efficient device that makes VR clowning worth the effort?

The answer is a resounding no.

The experience would be the same, but the disappointment would be seen much smoother and with a more accurate resolution.
