I admit that I have long been interested in Virtual Reality, but in truth I tend to get overly curious about all of the new and shiny objects that come out for video games. Dating back to my first console, the TI99/4a, I remember my fascination with the Speech Synthesizer. That little attachment plugged into the side of the console and helped to bring spoken words to games like Parsec and Alpiner. Over the years we have seen a lot of new technological advances that ranged from revolutionary (online gaming, the use of discs) to short-lived gimmicks that never pan out (such as the Sony Move or 3D television0 and everything in between. Having finally had a chance to spend some extended time with the Oculus Rift, it is easy for me to see the potential that is there, but I could not shake some nagging concerns that will keep me from investing in VR right away.
