    So I had a weird epiphany tonight. I was using my VR system that I've had since Saturday and I was standing on the side of a mountain bathed in sunlight... at 4:23am.

    I think I might be way less crazy in the coming months. This is a weird thing I'm experiencing right now. Could it be this simple?

    I doubt it. This is probably the beginning of the end.

    Well, let's see where this goes.

    I think it is that simple. I think night workers need VR with a good "daylight" app.

    So full disclosure, I ordered a Valve Index VR system early December. They were backordered but I got mine a few weeks ago.

    VR is weird, for sure.

    I've had some interesting experiences but I agree that VR needs some big titles to sell units. I hope Half Life Alyx is that.

    I'm playing stuff, but not sure anything is really there to hook me.

    Most of what I've played is pokerstars VR "Spies"

    **** is weird. It's about 10% poker, 90% spoiled rich kids trying to figure out how to put the lighter in the ducks ***.

    I need to write Valve an email to tell them to make a unit that can deliver the correct light to people deprived of daylight. But I had another cool idea that they should make a VR coaster with a cup so that if you're trying to drink a beer (or whatever else) while playing, the cup shows up in your VR headset.

    Problem with VR is that it isn't interactive. Video gaming is surprisingly a very social thing, especially at its most popular. Think Fortnite, Overwatch, whatever. MMOs are king right now, and then party games aren't too far behind. Hard for VR to compete with that.

    My main game is pokerstars VR, it is 100% interactive. Probably why it's my main game.

    But once Half Life Alyx comes out... I don't know. That might be enough.
