The gaming industry has been one of the fastest-growing industrial sectors of all time for the past few years. With an expansion estimate of $180 billion by 2021, the industry has seen its significant highs, lows, and introductions of many new technologies. VR gaming has been one such technological advancement that, since it sparked public interest in early 2000, has been the center of attention of the gaming industry. Among many gaming consoles, the VR headset made its own distinct place because the immersive and simulation experience had taken the world by storm.
Here are the top six reasons why virtual reality is not a fad or phase to go by, but it is the thing of now and much efficient advancement of the future, especially in gaming.
1. Less virtual, more reality
As of now, VR is restricted to a user’s visual and auditory senses. It has yet to fully connect to other senses attributed to gaming that make it a more real-time experience like temperature, smell, fatigue, etc. Accommodating to all or as many senses as possible is the secret to accessing the full potential of virtual reality. Therefore, there is a high chance for the future of gaming experience to break barriers between the virtual augmentation and the physical world by adding in more ways of not only experiencing VR but involving the feel of things too.
2. Story-based gaming
Video game developers now focus more on the story of the gameplay than anything else. The main reason behind this is that virtual reality encompasses and encapsulates the real-time experience of a story of the game. The player feels as if they are a part of the story as they become the main character and get to experience the surroundings, and whatever is happening around them is viewed through the character’s emotional perspective. Story-based gaming has helped the game developers to create more immersive games, and as time goes by, it will become increasingly efficient.
3. Better accessories
Virtual reality is going to become more advanced when it comes to gear, equipment, and accessories with time. Right now, when users are wearing huge box-shaped headgear, and they find it cool, then imagine what if it evolves into a sleek designed headband with nicely shaped rimmed glasses that show you the virtual reality simulation. The future holds a high prospect of this all becoming increasingly better looking and even better for your eyes. As right now, people are not sure whether wearing a VR headgear negatively affects the eyesight. But it can be said for the future that it will become safe and secure for your vision.
