Community Download is a weekly discussion-focused articles series in which we pose a single, core question to you all, our readers, in the spirit of fostering discussion and debate.
It’s been a while since we’ve posted a new Community Download! Several months, in fact. This used to be a weekend series but we’re reviving it for Mondays so that we can keep the discussion going all week long. Look for new topics each and every Monday for now on.
Since all of the major headsets have been out for a while now (about 2 1/2 years for Rift and Vive, over that long for Gear VR/Oculus mobile store, almost two years for PSVR, and so on) the market has done a lot of growing up. We’ve seen our fair share of zombie games, naturally, lots of great simulation games, multiplayer releases are really getting their footing lately, and there are some great new games on the horizon for the rest of this year.
But out of everything that we do have, we’re still missing a lot. We don’t have anything truly on the scale of the Oasis from Ready Player One yet, there isn’t a fully-featured MMORPG for VR quite yet even if Orbus VR is a step in the right direction. Games like Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 VR are huge and awesome, but they weren’t made for VR.
So out of all the things that we still don’t have: What do you think VR gaming is missing most right now?
Everyone will have a different answer to this question and I’m genuinely curious what you all are looking for next as the market continues to grow. Let us know your answers down in the comments below!
