But even if you don’t have an Oculus Rift set-up, you can still enjoy these creative Oculus Rift videos. Here are five of the coolest, funniest, and most interesting Oculus Rift videos we’ve seen so far.
1. Oculus Rift Pokemon Video
We covered this video when it went viral last month. While it’s not a perfect port of Pokemon Gold/Silver due to some controller issues, it’s really interesting to see this game from a first-person perspective.
Pokemon is a wildly popular franchise, and the ability to play this monster collecting game on the Oculus Rift might make the $300 price tag easier to swallow.
2. Oculus Rift Seinfeld Video
Oculus Rift isn’t just about gaming, as this video proves. Some industrious techie has recreated the iconic look of Jerry’s apartment on “Seinfeld.” While the build isn’t exactly photo-realistic, there are tons of tiny details hidden in the Oculus Rift version of Jerry’s apartment.
You can see Jerry’s Superman statue, his bike, his bathroom, and his collection of cereals. There’s even a couple of in-jokes from the show, like a box of Drake’s Coffee Cake and a pile of Japanese residual checks.
3. Oculus Rift Zelda Video
The video above showcases a beta version of the original Legend of Zelda. It does make some viewers feel a bit motion sick, but the video does a great job of showing how your sword chops through monsters. 8-bit gaming never looked so good.
4. Oculus Rift Far Cry 3 Video
Most of the videos on our list thus far have had a decidedly retro vibe. That changes now with video of 2012’s Far Cry 3, as played on the Oculus Rift.
Come for the awesome Far Cry 3 footage, but stay for the host’s awesome Irish accent. Seriously, when this guy starts screaming about a tiger that’s coming after him, it’s hilarious. This is a must-watch video simply because of this guy’s awesome, LOL-packed narration of his game.
5. Oculus Rift Video
That’s right, it’s another Oculus Video from YouTuber Jacksepticeye, the same guy who did the video above. What can we say…his reactions are just too funny for words.
We picked this video to end on because unlike the other items above, Terrorift is a native Oculus Rift title. Jacksepticeye makes the point that this horror game is so scary because, unlike a console horror game, this game takes up your entire field of vision.
If you are a horror gaming fan who is sell on the fence about getting an Oculus Rift, this video might convince you that Oculus Rift is the ultimate gaming machine to get your heart pounding.
