    Sure, I could easily see a "choose your own adventure" type game that featured pornographic material making it to VR. Similar to how the old Full Motion Video Games like Night Trap used to play.

    But we are years away from photo realistic video games in VR created using a game engine. So unless you are interested in getting off to women who look worse then a made for TV CGI character, then it's pre-recorded footage at most.

    I think it's because VR offers plenty just for the experience like just riding a roller coaster or a flight simulator where you don't control it (yet). Or that Dali exhibit they were showing off a few months ago.

    Plus they could do a tell-tale type games to make them interactive. I could just imagine what Japans cooking up for the VR.

    This is what I was getting at as any "porn" game produced for VR in the near future will likely disappoint unless it's using FMV. I know there are already in-engine Japanese porno games that sell well there, but the USA is different market.

    Seriously, take the most realistic looking female that you have seen in a high end PC game and ask yourself if you would want to get off to an interactive game with her character model. Then keep in mind how much more processing power VR takes and the overall drop in IQ you would see.

    Trust me, FMV is all you will get or want for the near future if you are dreaming of VR porn on your couch at home.

    My sense is that if you draw a Venn diagram the "realistic" circle and the "what some people get off on" intersect circle but are far from coterminous.

    Have you seen all the Overwatch porn parodies out there? It was a big news last month.

    It forced the studio to send cease and desist letter to pornhub and other websites.

    Hentai perhaps. @otc has already posted in other threads about all the Overwatch porn available. I'll leave him to be the expert.

    Yes and there is also a Simpson porn parody. These don't really cater to the same market as I would assume we are discussing here.

    Well you asked about the most realistic looking female and I am just saying it doesn't have to be for them to make something that people would be interested in.

    And they are in E3 because there are obviously some overlap there whether they make a game or simply an interactive hyper realistic experience, it's the VR system that brought them there and they want to show what they could do with it.

    I can't wait to try out all those little VR experiences which are not games like the Salvador Dali VR. This is also a great idea, a recreation of Deckard's apartment from Blade Runner:

    http://www.roadtovr.com/news-bits-blade-runner-9732-drops-deckards-apartment/

    And just imagine what kind historical events could be recreated. Imagine using VR to get a taste of what it was like to be on the Titanic when it was sinking, or walk around Penn Station before they tore it down.

    I have some interest in VR but I feel they are still too expensive.

    Like Sony's is like $400 for the headset but you need the camera and the motion controllers are needed for some games so you're looking at $500 for the bundle.

    I love the Arkham games so it is the Arkham VR that has really piqued my interest.

    Well if you are going to let me be the expert, then I will say that in my expert opinion, there is definitely a market for people who will get off to rendered versions of the hottest video game characters they have ever seen. But there are also people who will spend $$$ on silicone dolls to stick it in, so that's not saying much.

    Also, I somewhat dispute the processing power argument. You wouldn't have to render it all live. With enough storage space, you could prerender things. Could have plenty of choose your own adventure style branching...prerender the scenes and transitions. Because you are controlling the models, you can make sure all of the transitions are totally seamless...If you were using live actresses, You'd have a lot of trouble capturing them doing all of the small variations that might be in the game and making transitions look seamless.

    Think about how worked up people get on non-perfect CGI in Hollywood films. I'm not sure "most" people would really get into these prerendered characters in VR porn as they wouldn't even look that good.

    Yes there will be a market for this. I've never said otherwise. Just don't see it being a big thing for the near future.

    You are correct in the weaknesses of the FMV approach, but believe it's got the best chance of taking off to meet the needs of a larger market. There's been a lot of advancements in 3D video-camera systems over the last few years too.

    It's never going to be a "big thing" of course, no one expects it to sell like CoD and that is why there is one company tucked away in the very back of E3 and it isn't being showcased with free demos on the main halls.

    I grew up playing violent videogames and watching violent movies, but this is a little unnerving:

    Man that video could have been so cool too, instead he used it as a murder simulator.

    How is that simulating anything? Shitty graphics, horrible animation and floating guns? You think that actually could train anyone try kill people in real life? Might as well be playing Duckhunt. Moronic.

    "Murder simulator". :rolleyes:

    I dunno man. I've been thinking about this for a week or so, and this is far from a cohesive thought, but I also grew up playing video games (and obviously still do, including plenty of shooters) and lamenting the "grown-ups" lack of understanding of why they wouldn't turn people violent. But I feel like I've reached an age where I look at the way games are presented and which games get made - including this year at e3 - and almost everything is so cringe-inducingly, violently masculine that I'm not surprised at examples of how shitty gamer culture can be. And largely it still is pretty shitty.

    Remember manhunt? I'm still not saying video games turn people into killers but shit's still weird, even if things are generally getting better. Stuff like the military using "heroic" games or movies (Independence day...) as a recruiting process isn't a new thing (Church drummed up support for the Crusades through medieval romance, centuries before America's Army and those shit Navy commercials or whatever), but it still gives me the fuckin' willies. I guess it seems that games are changing slowly, but it's slow. Not sure this has anything to do with the latest "murder simulator" or "kill yourself f*g" messages over XBL, but maybe it does.

    Manhunt was creepy and weird, but I played it as a teenager, and it certainly didn't turn me into a killer. It is just a paternalistic worrying - they freaked out over Bully because it was GTA for kids or whatever, but it was really tame.
