    dit:  It seems like @StaceyPowers just beat to the trailer. 

    Only after being reminded of my dereliction of trailer duty =D

    The game is from one of the co-creators of Rick and Morty.

    You'll never cure cancer or solve world hunger by sitting on your couch with a controller in your hand,

    I'm not sure I fully agree with your point. Perhaps this extreme expression of it, but I think video games, like literature or art, can have a transformative effect on individuals and society with their messages. That could add up to significant social change, however indirect.

    Do you have the source for this article? I'd love to take a look. 

    I know that SomeordinaryGamers for example has played Minecraft VR to help with his insomnia. I included the video below where he talks about this. It's really interesting, because I could see myself doing this if I had a VR headset.


    Ack! So sorry, here it is: https://www.thedailybeast.com/virtual-reality-could-completely-transform-mental-health-if-were-ready-for-it

    I love to try and wear them and play around with them as I never had a chance to do so 😉 However working in them ALllllllllllllllllllllll Day...?  NOPE

    Just think the headache that I would get and the pain afterwords, I rather not thanks. You can get loppy and sick after awhile if you not going to take a break from it. I mean unless the paid is good. Still no for me. 

    Agreed. Even I might rethink the situation if they come out with something that weighs next to nothing. But otherwise? No way, lol. 

  5. “Some researchers have found [VR] technology to be especially potent at solving mental health issues like anxiety, addiction, and social isolation. Today’s virtual reality startups are in the game of creating and perfecting illusions to help users cope with reality, not disconnect from it.”

    What are your thoughts? Do you think VR could help mental health for some users?

  6. I have a rotating schedule where I play a game for about a week, then move to another, then another, and then back to the first. But each time I do, I feel like I need to be at a logical break point in the game, i.e. just finished a mission, have gone back to in-game home, and have tidied up my inventory. If I just quit in the middle of a dungeon, I feel weird about it for days. Does anyone else also feel you need everything to be in its right place before taking a short break from a game?


  7. Would you work in a VR office wearing a headset all day? Personally, I don’t get how this is a thing. I’d feel so (literally) weighted down by the headset and distracted by the layered environments that there’s no way I could concentrate on work. But I am curious if anyone here feels differently.

    Politics or trying to score points from certain people doesn’t belong in gaming, ghost of Tsushima and FF7R were done perfectly without it, they only did their jobs when creating those games as in creating a game that players can play and enjoy.

    Sadly it’s not just on the devs or publishers I mostly blame the player base in most cases, since they don’t want gaming to be fun for everyone anymore only a certain few with a specific mindset.

    Ah, I think maybe my thread topic was unclear. I meant politics internal to MMO game worlds, like ... players trying to gain in-game political power or use it to create in-game change.

    I'm not 100% sure what you exactly mean by your questions, are you talking about games that ended with a cliffhanger or/and games that ended and left you with more questions then answers?  please elaborate @StaceyPowers

    Plot threads that are unresolved, but not necessarily cliff-hangers. More like things devs either are taking forever to circle back to or outright forgot. Like the Architect in Dragon Age. Assuming his survival is canon, his failure to reappear in DA II or Inquisition is a huge dropped plot threat.

  10. Are there people you miss from your gaming past? Who do you miss?

    I still miss an admin in a MUD I played who died 14 years go. I also often wonder what happened to a girl I knew in a related game when I was a few years younger, who disappeared after she was harassed. I’m not sure I miss anyone else—maybe more the times we had than the players themselves.

  11. I’ve never played a large, modern MMO—just MUDs. In MUDs, politics was often a huge deal. In fact, in the games I played, it was the thing to be involved in. It created and broke relationships, and consumed endless hours of players’ time. Most players who were famous got that way through political clout.

    I seldom seem to hear anyone talking about politics in major MMOs. Is it just not a thing in games like WoW?
