Imagine playing not just the character Lee, but becoming Lee's eyes. The world becomes your world. Your aren't just playing the walking dead, you ARE in the walking dead.

The Oculus Rift. Virtual Reality head set due for mass retail in 2014 and will be easily applied to most games via mods. It's cost ranges in the 500$ mark and up.

  • it'll go down eventually. this is the future of gaming. no more are you just playing a video game 10 feet from the screen. But you actually ENTER the game world. This is the future ladies and gentleman.
  • How many of us would REALLY want to enter the world of The Walking Dead? Think how much more emotional damage would have been sustained if people had actually BEEN there, instead of just being immersed in the narrative.

    People playing the game knew it would have been an emotional struggle. Entering the game would've proved the point even more so.

    It's about immersion and pushing the video game boundries even further.

    yeah in the walking dead it means crying into that thing every 2 seconds of the last scene and not beeing able to clean it without missing half the dialogue or pressing the pause button (since you'd have to take it off) or you wouldn't see shit. that's your options ladies and gentlemen.
  • Some things you don't want to experience for yourself

    Could you really chop off your own arm?

    Or can you do a QTE?

    Well, that's like your opinion, man

    I'm not sure how that would work. If it was hooked up with a kinect than you could theoretically do the hand motion of cutting off your arm...

    Otherwise, you will still be using your standard d-pad controller to do the major interactions.

    That's about the average price for a gaming console. And I mean, a gaming PC will be around 1500$.
