Amazing '80s Arcade Is the Best Virtual Reality Trip Yet


MaximumRD

Recommended Posts

Walking along the ridiculously patterned carpet and taking in the dizzying deluge of light and sound, I found that I could play practically every arcade game I laid eyes on, with their buttons and joysticks actually responding to my commands as digital "scanlines" occluded their old-school CRT screens.
 
There's Tetris, Q-Bert, Missile Command, Asteroids, Joust and plenty more, plus a few anachronistic additions like Flappy Bird and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. (It looks like Digital Cybercherries is using a Game Boy Color emulator to actually run the games.)

This is amazing. And honestly it looks more immersive than anything else I've seen. I have an Oculus VR but I haven't seen how to get this. Do you know how MaxRD? I'm gonna research it right now.

Sorry I do not know, if I had a Oculus I would definitely investigate to be sure!
