What do you think about alternate reality game?

Virtual Reality?

 

Too expensive for too little offering. I mean, it's more than I can afford right now regardless, but the number of games that support it and benefit from it still seems to be in the novelty phase. Like, it seems like a huge boon in racing games where depth perception would both enhance the experience and actually help with driving. The idea of Fallout 4 in VR has an appeal too, though in a faster paced game I think you'd just get motion sickness.

 

The silly thing is, many of us own a device that for relatively little money could serve to demo the technology, but wont perform well enough to discourage people from buying full sets if able; smart phones. You'd think one of these companies would create a proper interface for smart phones to use something cheap like google glass to turn phones into a cheap version of a proper VR set. From the efforts of people to hack together something like this, it seems like the technical capability is there, there just isn't a proper interface to bring all the features together. Since one of the huge challenges for VR is convincing people to buy it, you'd think they'd be all about a solution like this that can provide an experience good enough to draw people in, but not good enough to keep them from buying a full rig.

I interpreted this question to be geared toward 2nd life type games and they're far too time consuming honestly

I literally can't imagine what an alternate reality game is meant to refer to particularly, I mean every single game ever released presents an alternate reality range from subtle changes like augmented reality games provide through to massive rpgs like runescape, dragon age or skyrim which provide an entirely different world.

 

I'd assume the OP meant Virtual Reality in which case I'd agree with Randox, but augmented reality and 2nd life both seem like plausible guesses.

I think AR has a better potential than VR, at least for things like shooters. The downside is that AR would become like Paintball or Lasertag. You'll either need a warehouse or semi-cleared forest for hosting levels. You could even do stuff like mario kart AR on a go-kart track.

 

I suppose alternate reality (AR = augmented reality; for clarity) that could also mean stuff like second life. I suppose great for some people, but well beyond my time constraints.

ARG depends from how intense you are involved with a story that takes place in real live. It might be interesting to watch how it evolves according to your responses...

 

There are some quite interesting ones: Cicada 3301, Forgotten Languages (thinking about this one) or Tengri 137
