Hi guys,


I have been recently having cravings to try something new and VR is something that I would like to try out I think!

I don't know much about it but what I do know is I want to be able to game on my pc MUCH more than standalone VR.

I don't want to spend much.. I think 3/400 euro is what I want to spend on this for now and then spend big next year if I see potential in it.

I also do plan on trying to run games in 3D rather than using vr controls as I used to LOVE Nvidia 3D Vision back in the day when it was working well.

I have been checking out Oculus Quest 2 and also an older HP Reverb Pro as potential options.
What do you guys think?? or what other headsets should I consider that would suit me?


Thank you!!

Like P4-630 said, you want to try it first to see if it's worth your money and time, so the best is to use a very cheap option or test one of someone you know or in a vr arcade center if there is one in the nearest city. I've buy mine in 2019 after trying VR back when the first Oculus rift was not release (it was the oculus DK1 or DK2). In 2018 i've try the Oculus CV1 and decided to buy the rift S. I don't use it that much, like 4-5 times a month but it's nice to use something different from keyboard and mouse sometimes or more, some people use it daily.
