Virtual reality has become more popular than ever, so it comes as no surprise that the online gaming industry has jumped on the bandwagon, developing powerful VR games. VR gaming has already made big waves, making for a new type of gaming experience in which players immerse themselves in a virtual 3D world just by wearing a headset.
Also known as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, virtual reality replicates either a real-life or fantasy environment. Users wear a VR headset, such as the Oculus Rift and/or other equipment so that they can view and interact with the virtual world. This equipment gives users an astounding field of view: each eye has a 1080×1200 resolution, and the display has a 90 Hz refresh rate. Headphones sync to the helmet, meaning users get a 3D audio and visual effect unlike any other online gaming experience.
