It’s been almost 10 days since the Play Station VR was released and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. I remember wondering for hours how would it feel like, would it make you believe that you are actually inside the game, and the answer is a big YES! You can now actually put yourself inside a race car and drive 200 MP/H with an almost exact experience as the real thing. But it looks like some people wanted more…
I can’t speak for the younger generations but being a 90’s kid, from the first time I saw a cartoon on my old TV I was looking for a door behind it. I wanted to hang out with Bugs Bunny so bad that I broke my TV screen while searching for the entrance. It fell on the floor and I got my first beating, and my first revelation. You can’t get inside a TV. That was a dream that could never come true, until now. With the VR technology, I can finally do that and even more.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT?
A day after the release I checked out the gaming community websites and saw some reviews. Honestly, I was expecting people to trip their balls out and just say that it was the best thing they ever saw. But no… I remember this one review that was like “Not bad… 7/10”. Hold your fu#king horses there partner! 7/10? Let me explain why that is wrong in so many ways.
Anything except a perfect 10/10 is unacceptable.
If you tell me that the PS VR is a 7/10 then you have to be ready to answer this question. Ok, then what’s a 10/10 from your experience? I bet you can’t answer that. Now, before you go out and play a smart ass with your smart ass review you have to use something as an example for perfection, or close to perfection in that area. I’m perfectly fine if you call Paladins an Overwatch clone and vice versa, or say that Fifa is better than Pes for some reasons, or that Drive Club is better than NFS but please, what are you comparing the VR experience to? Real life? Really?
I don’t know if you get the point here but in order to rate something, you have to compare it with something similar. Find some flaws and say “Yeah, it has this feature but this other device did it better”. This is something we didn’t have before and if you did have contact with some primitive forms of virtual reality I can bet that it wasn’t even close to the current one. So please stop taking technology for granted.
What a time to be alive!
I hope that in some point of our lives we will realize that we are becoming a bunch of spoiled brats. Just take a look back, some 20 years ago. We had our 8bit and 16bit games and it was the bomb! When Gameboy came out no one was saying “eh, it’s nice, maybe a 7/10…” We were all like “Dude, this is waaaaay better than Tetris!” When we got our first Playstation and experienced the first 3D environment we thought that’s as far as games will go. Then PS2 hit us, after that the unbelievable graphics with PS3 and a wireless controller! Everything was a perfect 10/10 because we didn’t have anything better at the time. Now, do you see a pattern here?? Can you now understand why I’m saying that we are becoming a bunch of spoiled brats? To give you an even better explanation I will let the great Louis CK tell you where did we go wrong.
