The Oculus Rift has not only changed how we think about virtual reality, but gaming as a whole. In a relatively stagnant market, the Oculus Rift has forced adopting developers to learn new techniques and styles. Critically acclaimed, this VR head set is no joke. It isn’t even close to consumer release, but people are still beyond excited for the possibilities that it holds.
We got some hands on time with the Oculus VR headset just outside of Boston in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The event was small scale, and fairly private. Game journalists, software developers, and a few lucky enthusiasts crowded around the nearly half-dozen games available for play. Most games seemed to be nothing more than tech demos, but there were one or two that stood out in the crowd.
