VR is going to be a platform that is going to rely heavily on experiences and immersion. If the content is terrible in VR it is going to be magnified because it has taken over your whole world.
There is going to be a new set of experiences and even genres that are going to cultivate from more people getting this tech. One thing that I really want to see is how people handle horror and fear.
Have you ever seen a horror movie in the theater and then rewatched it later at home? The effects are different to those experiences. I think that there are some movies that just work better in theatre.
I think there is going to be a new bred of experience that are going to terrify us. The emersion of VR is unlike anything we have experienced yet with technology. I can’t wait to be able to experience a game like resident evil.
Playing through that first game but imagine feeling like you are in the house and you are investigating something. That experience alone is going to be terrifying.
I am going to start a newsletter. A weekly roundup of my articles and recommendations. https://upscri.be/ff16f5
