5 awesome virtual reality game/app experiences to get you hooked on VR
Still in the early stages of development, virtual reality is nevertheless nothing new on a conceptual level for most. We've all seen it in the movies, and as often tends to happen, we end up creating the gadgets that the creatives behind our favorite sci-fi flicks dream up. Or well, not us, but rather some much craftier folks.
In any case, it's fair to say that VR is still a few years away from prime time. Display resolutions aren't high enough, the surrounding ecosystem of app and game experiences is just starting to take off, and most people don't even own a headset capable of immersing them into virtual reality. Quite frankly, until very recently, we didn't even have one at the PhoneArena offices to really go the distance with. With half a dozen Samsung Gear VRs now sitting on the shelf, that problem's solved, and we've been consuming as much VR content as we can get our hands on.
Our initial impressions were confirmed: the platform is still very new, and there isn't an abundance of quality productions. More often than not, apps tagged as VR-friendly are rather disappointing. But there are a few robust solutions freely available for everyone to try out, and we thought we'd highlight them for any VR enthusiasts who're considering investing into a headset. Let's dive in!
