Community Download is a weekly discussion-focused articles series published (usually) every Monday in which we pose a single, core question to you all, our readers, in the spirit of fostering discussion and debate. For today, we want to know which superhero you most want to play as in VR?
Virtual reality has the potential to offer some extreme power fantasies. We’ve even written a dedicated list to rounding up some of our favorite power trip VR games that make you feel incredibly powerful. But general wish fulfillment is one thing: we want to take some time to focus on what amounts to VR roleplaying or cosplaying as iconic heroes instead.
Marvel Powers United VR has a large cast of heroes to play as, but it’s a bit shallow overall. Spider-Man’s recent Far From Home VR experience does a good job of bringing web slinging to life, but that’s about all it does. Batman Arkham VR was barely a game and Megaton Rainfall is a respectable attempt at a Superman-esque VR game. But for the most part, we’re still waiting on that great superhero experience in VR. Fingers crossed Iron Man VR is as great as it could be.
So we want to put the question to you: Which superhero do you most want to play as in VR? Do you want a team-up game or a dedicated VR experience all about that hero?
Let us know your picks down in the comments below and we’ll see what everyone thinks would make the best superhero VR game.
