@themcnoisy as above with Superhot also I Expect You to Die, that's not a threat but a brilliant James Bond style escape room game with some of the very best use of the move controllers making for a very tactile experience and one that is getting new content soon. Beat Saber is another obvious choice and great fun and I'd probably also say the Batman game, it's a bit short but a fun spin on the Arkham storyline

@carlos82 thank you bro. I expect you to die is a mad title but sounds exactly like my cup of tea.

I got a ridiculously good deal on a PSVR bundle and with NMS on the horizon it seemed like a decent time to take the plunge. Thing is I haven't really tried VR much beyond the very limited experience that was knocking around in arcades in the Nineties. Any tips for how to avoid nausea and what games/experiences I should go for to build up "VR legs" would be hugely appreciated.

@LN78, I started my VR journey last week, so far I have played Astrobot, Everybody’s Golf VR demo, three of the mini games on VR worlds (London Heist, Dangerball, Ocean Decent) and and Wipeout.
Everybody’s Golf VR , Dangerball and Ocean Decent are a really safe introduction into VR as you don’t move round to much.
Astrobot is a very good game with true 3D platforming, the only thing I found disturbing is when the screen moves forward but it is only a minor quibble. But as I play more of this game I’m getting used to how everything moves.
London Heist is also very good, but the chase scenes in the van did make me feel uneasy to begin with. But with more gameplay under my belt I was able to reach then end. I then played it again as it has two endings!
Wipeout, what can I say visually stunning and I mean stunning, make sure you have comfort settings on as the game does warn you about motion sickness. I have found without them this game is motion sickness central! and to be honest I think this is one game I need more VR experience before trying again.
I haven’t tried Blood and Truth, Doom, Skyrim, RE7 or Stardust Ultra as of yet as these also came with the bundle I picked up.
For now I’m planning to play more Astrobot and also considering picking up Beat Saber and Everybody’s Golf. With you not moving round as much in Beat Saber or Everybody’s Golf I think they may be a pretty safe bet for now.

@Farmboy74 Something told me that Wipeout would be the one to put on the backburner initially! Thanks for the advice.

@LN78 As @Farmboy74 said, Wipeout is pretty ambitious. Everyone is different. I find that any game that tries to replicate non VR content makes me feel bad. I find FPS games hard, I was nearly ill after playing the persistence. However games where you are stationery or moving around helps. Astrobot is great as are a lot of the move controller games.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego I've heard nothing but good things about Astrobot so I think that might be my first port of call. I'm really intrigued by Blood and Truth as well. As you know the hype around it has been pretty unreal with terms like "John Wick Simulator " being chucked about. The biggie for me really is NMS,though. If that thing is even close to what I have in my mind it will be what I imagined video games in "the future" being like when I was a kid.

@LN78 Oh yeah, I will dive back into NMS with a VR add on. I played Eve because the demo was amazing and gave me everything I wanted of epic space battles and then the full game was just not like that at all.

@LN78 Astrobot is the most eye-opening jaw dropping game I have played since Ridge Racer and FF7. It really is that good.

I was there with Astrobot. We had great times together. I wish I never fixed his ship so he could be stood right in front of Me right now bouncing on my dining table.

The game is absolutely amazing and the fact it was overlooked for dreary (Albeit amazing in their own right) action adventure games in the goty stakes makes me pretty sad.

Being is believing.

@Rudy_Manchego As a life long sci-fi fan the prospect of exploring strange new worlds from the comfort of my sofa is pretty salivating. It's amazing to me that we have come from the wireframe space faring of Elite on the BBC Micro (one of my earliest gaming memories) to actually being inside the spaceships and on the planets in a game all in the few short years of my lifetime.
EDIT: Just out of interest how much of a playing area do you recommend? I've seen various opinions on the subject ranging from 5 by 5 feet all the way up to 20 by 20 feet!

@themcnoisy A few people have said Astrobot was their "road to Damascus' moment with VR. I can't wait to try it out. I love mascot platformers and haven't played a really good one since the Rachet and Clank remaster/movie tie-in/whatever that was. My delivery is due this afternoon and excitement levels are pretty high. Playing with new tech is always such a good laugh.

@LN78 I am about five feet from the TV. The only issue I have is that where my TV and camera are, I have a sofa to the left which I sometimes bump into. You can always angle the camera where you are if you are standing but for sitting games, like Astrobot it is something to be aware of. The camera also takes some adjusting. If standing I put it at the height of the tv and if sitting below the tv.

I used to play Elite as a kid and pretend my TV was the window of my spaceship!

After spending about 50 hours working through Tales of Zestiria, I decided to give my PSVR some love, so I downloaded Arca's Path this morning since I remember Push Square was really positive with their review of it.

Still need to get a pair of Move controllers, as I don't want to try Blood & Truth, Everybody's Golf, or Iron Man without them.

Currently Playing:
Switch - NSMBU Deluxe
PS4 - Moss

@themcnoisy I had it in my top 3 for game of the year, absolutely adore Astro Bot and I'd even put it in my top 5 for the entire generation, maybe even a bit higher.

@LN78 as for nausea there are plenty of games where you're still, or try things like standing whilst playing and games like RE7 turn your head the same time as turning the camera. Blood and Truth is a fun game but unfortunately the technology doesn't always keep up

@carlos82 I definitely felt a bit queasy at first with some of the stuff on the VR Worlds compilation-the luge and the Scavenger Hunt mech game in particular. It definitely helps to go in short bursts to start with. I just wish I could get the damn tilted image sorted out. The only thing left for me to try is a full re-initialisation of my PS4 which is obviously a major ballache.
