    Bugger I've wavered my fuck facebook motto and ordered one, my boys love watching youtube videoes of VR and got to admit some stuff looks a lot of fun.

    I've ordered 64gb and gather it's plenty for the majority of games but thinking about the long run and bigger games should I have gone for 256gb. I've read something like Medal of Honour still requires a PC link, is that a common theme?
    Most of what are considered the best VR games have been ported to the Quest, Medal Of Honor and games of that scope and scale are few and far between so theres not a massive amount you're missing out on with PC. That being said theres an Assassin Creed and Splinter Cell games coming that I think are PC only but it's not been confirmed. Take my advice, do not Drunken Bar Fight and give the headset to a child, or in fact anyone. My newphew was swinging around like a mental case and broke a controller, and they're pretty hard to break!

    You want to be getting Job or Vacation Simulator and Beat Saber as your first two purchases IMO

    I'm not being fighty but I don't agree with this: "Most of what are considered the best VR games have been ported to the Quest"...

    That's a pretty massive statement! :)

    Well, let's put it another way, most of the financially successful, best known VR games have been ported. Outside of Half Life Alyx and possibly boneworks (which seems to be getting a Quest version) the most well known non PSVR games are probably Beat Saber, Superhot, Tetris Effect

    And to be fair the ports have been downgraded (sometimes significantly) to run on the Quests. For the most part it's fine, but playing something on Quest then playing the same game using Link from a PC is night and day on a few games, such as Walking Dead. But then there's the whole wireless argument etc etc.

    I wouldnt count games that have it shoehorned in, Alien isolation doesnt even officially support VR and neither does No Mans Sky any more. Walking dead is out on Quest. So is Moss.

    Why wouldn't you count them? Quest with link gives you access to them, am confused.

    No Manís Sky still officially supports VR.

    @cov Because Alien isolation is only playable in VR by editing shit, it wasn't an official VR game, by that reckoning you could add a shit ton of games on steam that can be technically half-arsed played in VR.

    Thereís also a couple shoehorned games like Half-Life that you can play via side quest, whatís the point being made here?

    Half arsed is a bit much as well. Alien Isolation is transformative in VR, for a fan made mod it works insanely well and the entire game is playable. Likewise something like Squadrons where optional official VR is arguably the definitive experience.

    My original point was that most (clearly not all) of the best known, best selling VR games have made their way Quest. Obviously people then started naming the ones that haven't, as if I'm some kind of simpleton.

    which I quite admired actually

    I wasn't trying to give you any grief, it's just that my favourite VR games have mostly not been Quest games. My personal best VR games have been:

    Beat Saber
    VTOL VR
    Resident Evil 7
    Driveclub VR
    Rigs
    Playroom VR
    Half Life Alyx
    ... and probably others I'm forgetting.

    Also, Virtual Desktop is the 3rd best selling app right now.

    You can't get Beat Saber on Quest? That may change my thinking.

    Massive upgrade on the Quest 2 being rolled out, 90hz on supported games, fitness tracker etc. Oculus link is also getting the 90hz mode. Some people already have the update, I don't but you can install the firmware yourself if you are so inclined.

    @HoriZon Did you change to 90hz in the PC app, as it's still on 72 by default when using Link. It's not very intuitive to find, you need to go to settings, devices and click on the Oculus Quest and Touch.

    Sold my PSVR last week and my Oculus Quest 2 is being delivered today. I loved my PSVR and some of the games (Astrobot especially) have been amongst the best gaming experiences I've ever had. However it was getting limited use, mainly due to the wires/Moves not being the best experience and I did find the tracking really poor, often spoiling the experience with constant pausing and resetting the tracking.

    So - any suggestions for any non-PSVR titles to get me started? I'm going to get Pistol Whip as I didn't have that for the PSVR, but anything else anyone would recommend? I won't be tethering as I have an iMac so it will be headset only.

    Cheers

    @papalazar0u you can tether to an iMac if you run boot camp. Iíve done it a few times to play a few flight sims. Itís ok, but even a pretty top-spec iMac means you have to turn the graphics down a fair bit to get smooth gameplay.

    @Timmywimmywoo Cheers - my iMac is the 2013 model and runs fairly slow at the best of times, ready for an upgrade in the New Year so will hold off now...

    @papalazar0u you and me both - Iíve got a 2017 top-spec one and itís not uber fast because it has no SSD. Iíve been quoted £450 to supply and fit one which would transform it... but by the time I get around to it the Apple Silicon ones will hopefully be out. Fingers crossed Apple does wonders with the GPU and, erm, finds a way to let boot camp work!
