When Video Games Become Too Realistic
We have come a long way from Atari, Pong and Super Mario Brothers. With video game consoles like Xbox One and Play Station 4 breaking down technological boundaries every day, a whole new world has been opened up for gamers.
Virtual reality games have also become so realistic that you can almost believe you are in the simulated world, as the man in this video below found out the hard way. As he stands on the edge of his virtual cliff, the man behind him gives him a little shove as a playful joke.
The gamer did not find it funny at all, flailing his arms in a frenzy of fear. It took three men to settle him down, and we are still unsure if our gaming hero ever recovered from his virtual trip. It is funny to watch, but a near heart attack for him!
With video games continuing to advance how we think about interacting with technology, what does the future of gaming have in store for us?
If it’s anything like the video above, it might be best to stick with controllers and joysticks over virtual reality devices.
