Driving Simulators

It’s no surprise to anyone who is paying attention that the world of Virtual Reality (VR) should be affecting the world of gaming so much.

But the amount that it is doing so, and the ways in which it is doing so, might come as a surprise to some people.

The truth is that this is clearly the next wave in gaming, and we can expect more and more platforms to start taking on board increasing amounts of VR components over the next few years.

It’s always hard to predict what the world of gaming will look like in ten years’ time, but at the moment we can probably say with some degree of confidence that it will be dominated by VR to some degree.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be other gamer types out there, but VR looks set to be the way ahead for now. Let’s look at some current examples of where VR is being used in the world of gaming already.

Obviously, simulator games are one of the most useful and easiest routes to make use of VR, so it’s hardly surprising that this should be one of the first areas to use it. In particular, you are likely to find that there are a huge number of VR driving simulators out there already, and the thing about a VR driving simulator is that it goes beyond merely being a game. It can actually be an incredibly useful safety feature, which could help people to learn to drive more effectively and more safely without too much trouble. Of course, it’s also just an incredibly fun way to pretend to drive a car, and it’s something that we can expect to see a lot more of as time goes on, especially in the next few years.

Free-Falling


How does it sound to have a realistic experience of falling through the air at terminal velocity?

While this is clearly something that you are likely to shy away from, a lot of people would feel that it sounds like a lot of fun, and actually, it is an increasingly popular type of game in the world of VR. The benefit of this for those who are genuinely keen to go skydiving is obvious, as it allows you to get some kind of feeling about what it might feel like without any of the danger. But it’s also just a great addition which is likely to become a part of other games too, and it could soon make its way into some otherwise pretty normal games. Imagine suddenly falling off a platform and actually feeling yourself falling. This is where gaming could easily be heading now.
Rock Band

Remember: VR doesn’t have to just be used for crazy, out-there experiences. There are also plenty of examples of it being used for much tamer and more ordinary things, and one great example of that is the rock band genre. If you want to feel that you are taking part in a rock band live on stage, then VR is a good way to do it.
