Virtual reality has the capacity to be a nearly infinite amount of things. Yet, most developers find themselves focusing in on already well-established genres and themes. The reason why this isn’t a problem is that it helps to get developers situated in thinking within the virtual reality space. As it turns out, popular genres can actually be seriously improved through the addition of VR too. Survios’ Raw Data is an excellent example of this. Imagine a first-person arcade shooter where aim truly matters because you’re the one literally holding the guns. Or imagine a tower defense game and then consider what it would be like to actually be on the battlefield, running about, setting turrets and defending against a never-ending robot menace.

You’ve seen and read a bunch about the Valve & HTC Vive being demonstrated on a show floor or in some cavernous conference room; you might even have been able to try it for yourself in such a space. What’s been more of an unknown is how the much-anticipated ‘room-scale VR’ hardware holds up when used in a more average-sized house, and for long periods rather than just the length of a demo. I’ve had one in my small terraced home in Brighton for just short of a week, and I have a great many things to tell you about it.

Following the debut of several VR devices in 2016, consumers are able to choose from an assortment of headsets, each with their own strengths. The same can be said of developers, although their best interest is in choosing what is trending with consumers.The ultimate question at this point is, which headset is leading the pack?Speculation has placed Oculus Rift at the top of the heap due to its early entry to the market and greater brand awareness.
