At the 2014 Game Developers Conference, I endured a two-hour wait to play CCP Games’ Eve: Valkyrie on the Oculus Rift for the first time. The experience was unlike anything I’d ever undergone before. I could look above me and, in plain sight, see the soul-sucking emptiness of space. I could look behind, and see that I was pray for an enemy fighter. And I could look below to witness massive starships battle like savage beasts. Never before had I felt so immersed in a game — or any other media.
