Hey everyone. I am writing here to ask that 4A games considers making a VR patch for Metro 2033 and Last Light. I personally liked 2033 just a tad bit better than Last Light, so i hope they don't just make it for their most recent game. I genuinely think Metro 2033 stands a chance to be THE BEST VR experience for a short (maybe even a long) time after the Oculus Rift launches. We all know how amazing these games are and i think we all realize that some people just don't "get it" when it comes to Metro games. Im guessing many people's life backgrounds just don't give the Metro landscapes and subject matter much appeal, causing many people who do play Metro to focus only on the gameplay/challenge while missing out the immersion: Like, for example, a genuine feeling of safely/security in the stations, of celebration of safely getting to Market Station and trepidation/fear/wonder when leaving Market with Bourbon debarking into the lost tunnels. I think VR will really help bring the experience you and I probably had in Metro games to more people who are more casual players helping them focus on the more immersive aspects of the game. I loved the fact that DayZ helped bring the beautiful landscapes of Chernarus to millions of people who would have probably never seen it and i hope that a VR patch does the same for the in-fucking-credible landscape 4A games made in 2033 and LL. As a 3D gamer, i can tell you that the realistic 3D provided by the VR headset will help you "feel" the realistically massive expanses of the environments, like Polis Station interior, the impressive height of the ceiling of the area in Frontlines, the dangerous height of the many dangerous drop-offs, like off the edges of the bridge, the end tower and others. For me, the realism of the landscape looking out at the end tower was wonderous and haunting in 3D, with the bars of the tower contrasting the difference in spacial distance. It might make you feel like you might bump your head in the ventilation tunnel with Bourbon. :lol: The 3rd dimensional information lends a feeling of size and space to everything, such that those big red automated tunnel doors feels big and thick and the everything in your cozy "apartment" in the beginning of the game looks so real like you could reach out and touch it (same with everything thats in front of you! ) Anyway, i played 2033 slowly through 2 times before i playing in 3D 2 more times im happy to say that was my experience. It was just a massive boost to immersion, even despite already playing it through twice. I hope you all get to enjoy that. ................ CONCERNS With both games i have some concerns about how the game plays with VR, but mainly with Metro 2033. The walk speed is too high IMO (far above reality) and there is no acceleration to stopping and starting walking. So if you are near something and you try to "inch closer" (English term meaning to very slowing move closer) and tap the forward key a few times, like you might to try and look over the edge of a drop-off, when you do this you instantly begin to move fast, then stop, start, stop, start, stop. It jarring. The other problem is that, since the FOV is high, the player can see more to his/her sides and can see the world go by at the speed at which it normally does when running or sprinting in real life. It my belief as a long time gamer, having experimented with wider FOVs over a long period of time, that fast walk speeds can be immersion breaking, since 99% most of us move, its at a walking pace and i think we get used to having the world pass us by at a certain speed. Not a big deal, just something to consider IMO. One thought would be to at least lower it to match Bourbon's (all NPCs?) walkspeed, since that frequently causes me to stop/start/stop/start just behind Bourbon because the player's walk speed is slightly faster. ........... Anybody also have thoughts on this? I can't wait to try it personally. If you have an electronics store near you demoing the Samsung Gear VR unit, i believe that will be almost the same as the Rift/Morpheus so you can see what its like. I was VERY impressed with the Gear VR. VERY! Good things are coming guys!
