    Bethesda did kind of shoehorn vr into Fallout, Doom, and Skyrim so I'm not surprised they have issues. I'd probably still buy them off a crazy steam sale to try if my computer could play them...

    House of the Dying sun has a cool mechanic where you can switch between the tactical map and a fighter. You just kind of zoom out and tell the other ships in your fleet what to do then pick a fighter (fighters only *I think*) to jump into and then your back in the battle. This gif kind of shows it off:

    I'm going to check out Elite Dangerous, vr is great for driving/flying. I Expect You To Die looks like a lot of fun, funny too. I'm definitely getting that and Rick & Morty. LA Noir looks good and also unintentionally hilarious. I watched some gameplay on youtube and it looks fun to play and fun to just completely screw around.

    Oh and Thumper. How could I forget about Thumper. It's a great game made better by VR

    Have been playing through the Bioshock series, love all 3 games. Dripping with style and atmosphere.

    If you aren't playing Polyball, you fucked up badly. I got it for like $13 last week and spent probably 10hrs on the "storyline" alone, now I'm just fucking around having fun... Very good, challenging game.

    Also still reeling from Nier:Automata, which I got ending E almost a month ago now... probably best storyline in a game I've ever played. Really great and just fucking heartshattering. I love deep, philosophical stories and this hit all the right buttons. Can't say enough good things about it. Like 88% on quests now, definitely going to 100% this one.

    Finally got a chance to play Fortnite Battle Royale, tons of fun. I thought the crafting was gimmicky and still feel like it is, but it's also a lot of fun. I picked up an orange item that looked like a bush and I had no idea what it does. We were building what turned out to be a really shitty fort near the center when another team came at us. We were getting slaughtered so I said fuck and used the item. Turned me into a bush, nobody saw me, almost won the round. My team hadn't seen the item either so luckily they weren't mad I stood there and watched them die, they just started spectating me and laughing when the realized I was the bush.

    @deadheadbill just recommended that, he might be able to tell you.

    I'm super interested in it and have no idea why I've never thought to get a flight stick. That would make vr (or any) flying games so much more fun...

    Think you quoted the wrong guy. :)

    Absolutely, it is one of the best VR games out right now. I need to dig my old flight stick out of the closet though because while it is playable with a gamepad a HOTAS is ideal.
