    And so begins the rise of the “VR-MMORPG” or “Virtual Reality – Massive Multi Player Online Roleplaying Game”. Since the dawn of video gaming, gamers have dreamed of a virtual world so immersive that the line between the virtual world and reality disappears entirely. A way to fully interact and be inside of their games.

    In just 60 years the technology has advanced from small simulated boxes floating before your eyes, to playing a real piano using nothing but your eyeballs.

    While movies like The Matrix make the promise of controlling an entire world around you virtually seem far off, the future of the virtual world is closing the gap at a breathtaking speed. While the future of MMORPGs and virtual reality may not be extensively financially backed by large corporations, there are several promising virtual experiences already currently being crowdfunded.

    A “Virtual Reality MMORPG” allows the player to interact in the game world using some combination of head mounted display, audio and input devices, in order to achieve an even higher level of immersion. The level of achieved integration depends entirely on the users choice of virtual reality devices, and the game’s own capabilities. Some headsets possess the ability to track a users eye movements, allowing a deeper connection to other players, and NPCs or Non Playable Characters. Instead of pushing a button, simply making eye contact with the NPC will trigger their preset dialogue, or other programmed actions. Other devices have an externally rigged camera, or additional items the player will wear that tracks the users own physical movements. This allows the players to control their avatar’s movements with their own body, all while the player is fully viewing and interacting with a virtual environment so lifelike that its easy to slip grip on reality.

    In the future we´d like to see games like AgeOfSpace in VR, something that could be amazing.

    I would say VR adds more immersion because you feel like you're in the game. With a regular MMORPG, you're aware that you're looking at a screen and that you're controlling your character with a keyboard as you play.

    VR would be more engaging and entertaining if you really like the world kind of like how cinemas draw me in way more than a laptop screen but bigger and all over

    Well practically the whole concept; you're practically in first person in the game and the movements are less limited.
