Okay first some explaining for those who don’t know, I have a Vive VR headset and with the Vive you have your VR Home. This home is basically where you start and from there you can go to the different games you have, but the interesting part is that you can customize it. So, my VR home is a fancy apartment floating above Gotham city (and for those who know me it was the nerdiest one I could find that’s why it’s sadly not HP or Iron Man themed). Another thing about your home is that there are also random objects like furniture, books, and even snow piles that you can change the the size of and put around your home.
So, last month or so I was doing a Beat Saber(basically DDR but you slice things with swords) session with my friend. We were trying out the new multiplayer mode that was finally added and we were having so much fun, but as anyone whose played Beat Saber knows that game is a work out. So, after we got tired we “went” to my VR Home and we were just “walking” around messing around and looking at Gotham. This is when one of us tried to see if the game would allow us to drop things of my balcony. We both assumed at first that it wouldn’t, like I thought that it would just float in mid air or something like that because I didn’t think the game would have something like that programed in. But then when we dropped a coffee mug of the balcony guess what it did! Thats right it fell! For some reason that entertained us so much.
Once we realized we could drop things we just assumed that it just disappeared at some point. But then after dropping bigger things like a bed and bookcase we both were like “wait I think I see it on the ground! I doesn’t just dissappear!”. That’s when we started getting really into dropping things, we both were finding any item we could and we would make it as big as we could and just started chucking things of the balcony like our life depended on it, it was great! Honestly I have know idea why we found throwing plates bigger then my head off a balcony and watching it get smaller and smaller until it just stops and sits on the ground so fun but it was.
But seriously I had the same amount and maybe even more fun just dropping things of a ledge in a virtual apartment then I did playing an actual game. That’s why VR is so much fun because even the simple things are awesome in VR.
