    Has anyone got a VR headset?

    I have upgraded to the quest 2, which I really like, there are some cracking games out there, however the one I am really getting into is called contractors, which is a first person shooter. You have to manually reload your weapons, which can be tricky at first and then also find your ammo, again tricky but after a bit it becomes second nature. I think this game will really make me wet myself when the version for the quest supports some old skool game maps like MW, MW2 and MW3, there are rumours of BF4 maps as well but they are all in the dev stage. However, looking at the map in the link below and if you remember Crash then this is going to be one hell of a party.

    Never in my lifetime did I think I would be actually in the maps that I used to love 10-15 years ago. The other good part about this is some of the people I used to play these games with have a Quest, this game and also used to play MW back in the day.

    Bought my son a quest 2 and we absolutely love it. We had a playstation VR but there was so many wires and the camera all this, pretty rubbish compared the the Oculus IMHO. Love the star wars games on it and I bought the walking dead on it for me, ace!

    I love my Quest 2. Really enjoyed Alyx. Got a ton of games I need to play but just no time these days.

    Have this exact problem mate and need to curb buying games until I've played what I've got. I was a little skeptical on how good the graphics could be without a computer, but they're honestly brilliant aren't they. My best buy in a long time the Quest 2

    Curb buying games? lol, you so funny. You have to buy them when they're on sale and let them sit. ;)

    I actually prefer playing the games that require me to be connected to PC where I can use my super-awesome graphics card. I've got a Link cable, but I often use Virtual Desktop to connect wirelessly. And Oculus just announced AirLink, a free wireless update which should be coming soon.

    I've started streaming my game playthroughs on Twitch. Currently playing through Mass Effect. You might say I'm a bit behind......

    I am probably a bit more than halfway done. Unsure what I'll stream next...
