Virtual reality or VR is by no means a novelty. The idea of placing yourself into a simulated world has been a popular subject since the 1950s. In fact, over the years many technologies have been developed to create these virtual spaces and each one served as a stepping stone towards perfecting the craft. Nowadays, VR is advancing on an unprecedented level and it is beginning to find niches for itself in movies, music, and most of all gaming.
Video games and VR have definitely proven to go hand in hand with each other and it is not a surprise seeing that there have been many devices from the past and present that utilize the technology like Nintendo’s Virtual Boy or the PlayStation VR. What is so fascinating about VR in gaming is that it serves as an alternative to the standard gaming controller and it offers brand new ways to experience the games we know and love.
Combining these two things is match made in heaven because games are in essence virtual realities themselves and now, thanks to VR devices, people can now fully immerse themselves into these realities. The Oculus Rift is perhaps the most popular example of a VR device in recent years that enables the user to explore simulated environments with ease. Moreover, it lets the user interact with game environments through the use of special motion controllers. These controllers let the user manipulate objects in real time so that it feels like they are physically changing the game world themselves without the detachment from using a regular controller.
The Oculus Rift and other VR devices have proven to be revolutionary in the realm of gaming and they have proven to be versatile as well. They can be used for watching movies on a large screen to simulate the theater experience and for playing games on online casinos. Playing online blackjack looks more attractive when played with VR gadgets. VR can also be enjoyed as a spectacle and does not have to be relegated to one person playing at home; people can gather at special venues or connect with each other online to play games.
