Whenever I talk about the Oculus Rift, the first thing anybody says to me is "Oh, I'd love to play *insert favorite old game* in the Rift!" My first response is always "No, you wouldn't," and then I'd explain all the reasons why. They'd always shake their heads, tell me how wrong I am, and how I'm just not seeing the awesomeness of whatever they're imagining in their heads.
This week, "Ubiquitron", a 31 year old independent game developer from Oakland, released a small demo using assets from the NES classic The Legend of Zelda, creating a massive news frenzy on gaming media. Looking at the responses, I've realized something - I've become the kind of person I make fun of.
I've become a VR Hipster.
