VR is awful and still hasnt progressed to being playable without making people vomit. I plated the Red Baron one back in the day and the delay between moving and vision was pretty bad. Last year I went to Disney World and to the DisneyQuest arcade. They had a much newer VR implementation featuring a...

I cant stand Goldeneye either. Definantly overated. The graphics give me a headache. BLurry and muddy and I have to squint to see anything.

Re:

I got kicked out of sixth-form for that. Basically our Sys-Admin (or dopey IT Technician) left themselves logged on. So I opened up User Manager (Windows NT is sooooo easy to use) and changed my group membership from Domain Users to Domain Admins . Now I installed DOOM on all the PC's in the IT sui...

Im not a big RPG fan but I love the Zelda games, and I liked Secret of Mana so I guess Im a main stream RPG fan but...
