I imagine this being absolutely terrifying in vr.

At one point, I stopped getting scared in VR because I have more control of myself rather than being limited by a gamepad controller. It still gets freaky when you turn around and run away from a regenerator; the hairs at the back of my neck rise when that happens.

One of my favorite things I’ve had happen is getting jump scared by something and jumping and freaking out. But in my reaction with my subconscious reflex I actually shot the enemy in the face with my handgun. It wasn’t a conscious decision it happened before I knew what was going on. Was just cool to think, I don’t have reflexes that, idk direct, in normal games.

Honestly, not really lol. The Regeneradors, Mendez, and the Bella Sisters were the only things that really got more terrifying. The bosses overall are mostly far far easier in VR so the El Gigante is kind of a whimp lol. Awesome and a LOT of fun and one of the coolest things you can play. But not really scary. Granted it also depends how much you've played RE4. If you have nearly everything memorized, it's pretty easy. I got a Quest 2 just for this and I'd say it was worth the $340 total for the experience. The castle with updated textures is unreal.

I'll plug some gameplay footage in that I made with a "light speedrun" mentality:

What happens to your POV when you come across a chainsaw?

The game cuts to third person

God I need vr for this game alone. RE4 best game.

Wait it actually tracks you if you jump out of the way and fall to the ground…? Did you actually do that IRL?

Wtf. That is terrifying.

I've not played an RE game since the remake on GameCube with its terrifying mutant sharks so am very behind on the lore but what's the deal with the thing that emerges from its head and then the head coming back again?

ID: hjzyk2i

Las plasgas. A parasite. No zombies in this game.

how does moving around work? did the player dive into his desk/table/tv?

As much as I'd love to play it on VR I just can't. Just looking at this gives me motion sickness.

ID: hjyx2m5

There's comfort options like teleporting and vignette options. Hopefully that will be enough to get you comfortable! As you play more VR you grow accustomed to the feeling too.

The teleport option is a life saver!!! I usually get sick within 10 seconds of anything motion like rollercoasters. I love re4 so much because of the movement comfort option.

ID: hjyzxw9

I got motion sickness at first, but you do get accustomed to VR. Try ginger chews (or smoke some weed) to help with the nausea. The teleport function also really minimizes discomfort if you just can’t do the walking.

I completely understand why some people aren't into it, but VR is fucking amazing.

Like, it sounds like this technological weird nebulous "thing" just hearing/talking about it.

But EXPERIENCING it is like a whole different thing.

For those that haven't tried a good VR game, you know when you go to the movies and see it in 3D? You can see depth right? But the depth doesn't start until the actual screen, so it looks like a shoebox diorama.

In VR, you experience depth starting 1 inch from your freaking eyes.

At the beginning of Skyrim, when you go into that cave and the giant spider comes down? That shit looks TERRIFYING to scale. Then it lunges at you with video game speed

Very very cool experience

just beat this boss yesterday, way easier than i thought, i was dreading it since the fight with the Lake monster kinda sucks in "immersive mode", its not difficult but the reloading is the frustrating part, then the orientation of the boat keeps changing around and that itself moves the harpoon gun and ammo location (which you have to pick up to reload), STILL this game is amazing in VR, another annoyance is the rifle scope, its useless IMO.

I wanted to get this but it not being on steam(and not have a vr headset) as well as removed and edited content made me nope out
