Nice that it's getting good review, but I'm still not getting it. I'm not into VR and I really do hope that Valve makes a non VR version of the game. But still it's nice that both Doom and Half-Life are back again.

Half life will be back the day when valve decide to release proper PC version. will be the day i will celebrate finally.

used to be my fav fanchise.

this is flop for Half life standard. HL2 was 96 on metacritic. and truly deserved it.

Controls pretty well, better than Walking Dead: Saints And Sinners, about on a par with Onward and Pavlov, which are generally the best controlling VR games imo.

PSVR will show up, eventually. Valve said they're working on perfecting the game right now, and will move to other platforms later. With PS5 power Alyx will do just fine.

Anyone else unable to disable snap turning? Also if I select weapon hand as left handed, movement switches to right analog stick. And I dunno how to crouch (playing seated)

Wow. This game is just incredible. Set's the bar for VR, this is the new standard. Classic Half-Life immersion without the cinematic bullshit found in other games, coupled with elegantly simple and flawlessly executed controls.

Seeing the combine soldiers as life-sized enemies right in your face is intimidating as hell. As are zombies and headcrabs. I mean for a second there I think I actually panicked haha.

The first few minutes, where you see the strider variant walking around *gasp*

And everything about the controls is perfect (using Valve Index).

I'm only in about 30 minutes or so in, but wow. Game of the year so far for me.

Poor Doom Eternal, it will be getting neglected the next few days....

It is. I really can't describe it. That's probably the toughest part with VR.

Me:"VR is amazing"
Curious person: "Oh yeah, tell me more"
Me"VR is just...how do I....it's like....think of it like....wait, no...
CP: "Hmmm"
Me: "No, seriously, it's amazing".

@pinkribbonscars said:

Honest question: why are you playing sitting down?

You crouch by crouching...in real life. Though at 6"2 I am finding it a bit tough to get as low as I need to be once or twice hahaha.

You know, if you would just admit you were wrong about Alyx, people might have a shred of respect for you on here.

Wish I could play standing, but it's too disorentating for me. Still working on my VR legs.

I managed to download a binding that enables crouching and standing, now I just need to fix the analog

@uninspiredcup: I tried drawing on the glass bowl with the pet creature in it and it didn't work.

The game is incredibly atmospheric.

I got a hour in before my daughter walked in and wanted to play Angry Birds VR.

I have trouble with it standing up.

I get super wobbly but it goes away after 10 minutes...sort of.

The thing is, I like it better (gameplay-wise) than teleporting. So it's sort of like "Do I want to just stand around and teleport and not be wobbly, or do I want to seem like I am actually moving and maybe risk falling over" hahaha.

@Grey_Eyed_Elf: Had to stop because basically getting cooked. Putting the heating at full probably wasn't the best idea in the world.

But yea, not just the VR, the audio is really good. The rumbling when heavy entities come near you, much more emphasized here.

Reading through some of theses comments...lol, you guys gotta get your vr legs. Standing (as long as you are able to) is by far the most immersive way to play. Time to get a strong gut, fellas.

Other than that, it's great to see people playing this. VR is amazing, and more and more gamers are realizing this.

Yeah I don't get it... Had my brother come over once he found out I got a VR setup and he was swaying around like a palm tree in a storm soon as he started to play Pavlov VR.

I had zero issues from the get go, I am not sure if its something that can be fixed since he has played it 3-4 times over the last 6 months and still reacts the same way to movement.

Its probably the one reason why VR HAS to have different movement options in order to be accessible to everyone.

My daughter on the other hand has no issue what so ever and she is 5.

It seems very odd they wouldn't have an in-game option to change the players default height. Instead (at least it appears) you have to do it outside the main game.

I am right now.

HL alyx is goldeneye and Doom Eternal is Quake 1.

both released same time.

one got high score because of First ever console FPS. other one was vastly superior

this time one get perfect scores because first full scale VR game. obviously other is superior game released on platform with standard.

Oh I bet. Trying not to watch anything else here, want every bit to be a surprise.

I'll quit memeing on ghosts for a sec. Doom Eternal is ****'n fantastic, high octane action, feels more at home with something like Ninja Gaiden or DMC than it does with other shooters. Alyx, from what I've seen and heard, also seems like a big step forward for the genre, just in a completely different direction.

I've never been big on single player shooters, but both these games seem like must-play material.

Been holding off on getting a headset, usually just dick around with the ones at my workplace. But I'm gonna cave for Alyx as soon as I have the time.

The opening is far slower paced compared to Halflife 2 where you're immediately being chased by the combine. Def "baby first VR game", which makes sense as if any game will get newcomers it will be this.

Was worried as well from the trailers (specifically this) that it would be scripted taking control away from the player COD style.

But you do still have function, albeit with a barrier, but at least a natural one.

No, Doom Eternal is goldeneye, because it's on consoles

Alyx is Quake 1, because it's a PC exclusive

@subspecies: I love that valve is one of the only few companies that are anti exclusive. They could’ve kept this exclusive to index but it’s out on all available pc vr. I am sure it will be available for the next iteration of psvr.

For sure. The PS5 will handle it easily. No need for the next iteration, as the original PSVR will be powered by the PS5. That being said, PSVR2 will obviously be the way to go when the time comes.

First the dude shows up and posts a gif of a girl, trying to make it seem like she's dissing VR, when he doesn't even realize that the girl freakin' works in VR, and she is simply having some fun. Then he crawls back into the thread once Alyx gets rave reviews, claiming the GS review isn't good enough.

The man(child) is a master of owning himself.

93 on metacritic. Nice! Don't have any VR systems.. yet.
