I have been following the VR scene from a distance over the last few years and finally decided to jump in and buy an Oculus Go. I have been impressed with it so far.It’s not that much worse than the PSVR and HTC Vive at a fraction of the price. Overall it’s a great introduction to VR for regular people.
By and large I am looking for interactive experiences and media rather than hardcore gaming. I like Ocean Rift and I have tried a bit of Virtual Virtual Reality which seems like great fun and truly innovative. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the video experience. On balance I still prefer a TV set, but on a flight, for example, it would be a perfectly decent experience.
The main areas VR needs to improve is resolution and reducing the weight of the headsets. Better battery life would be nice too. I think VR will be amazing in 5 years and mobile VR like the Go will probably be what most people will use. There could also be a boom in VR arcades with the best headsets and peripherals.
