Losing My VR Virginity to Half-Life 2

VRFocus: “It doesn’t really work until about three minutes in,” is what I’m told as I slip on an Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset for the first time. I can understand my guide’s desperation to reassure me; too many times in the past few years have tech giants and PR spins tried to sway us about ‘innovations’ that didn’t work out. 3D cinema arguably only proved its worth with 2013’s Gravity, while the Wii had to add an entirely new accessory before reaching its full potential. You couldn’t blame anyone for being sceptical about this ambitious technology.
