As we know, there are games for all tastes: strategy games, simulation, war, arcade games, sports, etc. The game Half-Life: Alyx belongs to the war / shooting games but it is played in VR (virtual reality). In other words, it is as if we were part of the game within the game.
For those who do not know Half-Life: Alyx, or those who do not remember the story here is an idea of what it is. As already said, Half-Life: Alyx is a shooter, in what is called first-person VR and was developed and published by Valve. The story itself is not very complicated, it is about the players who control Alyx Vance, while she and her father Eli fight against the alien invaders, who have been named Combine. And it has managed to give a big boost to VR games.
This is because VR Road has used both historical data and data directly from Valve to be able to calculate the Steam users who added RV headseats in April, about 950 million. We cannot forget that in April people spent it at home.
Of course, this type of data not only provides information on how many players are using VR devices to be able to play, but also helps those who create such devices, such as the Oculus Quest, or the Valve Index, which are the game company's own headseats.
In addition to driving the use of VR for games, they can also help developers feel inspired to create more even more advanced VR games. But do not think that there is still a long way to go before this type of technology is as commonplace as mobile phones are.
