I was messing around in a VR theater game, and decided to join a group that was watching Jurrassic World 3D. Because it was being streamed to the host to many others, I got to have the amazing experience of watching an extremely compressed 3D movie and trying to comprehend it. It was a brilliant experience that made me 124% smarter.

@ja2ke This is the only time I've watched one and so I can only barely speak from experience, but from what I've read, it's like watching a 3D movie regularly except that the glasses don't tint your view, tilting your head or sitting at an undesirable angle won't mess with the effect. Generally a lot of the bad stuff is gone since each of your eyes is getting the correct half of the screen directly.

When the uploader's speed managed to hold for a few seconds, what I've read seems accurate.

@ja2ke On a related point, I've heard that using 3D vision on a virtual screen is a great VR-like experience for games that weren't built for VR, and which won't cause sickness since the brain will understand it's just looking at a screen.

@SL128 Yeah I'd believe it. I'd love to look at, for instance, old Telltale games, through a 3D camera, on a screen, in VR. Any game like that that does diorama-like camera angles.

@SL128 Poker Night VR would be genuinely good I think. Though you couldn't do it with what's there. We hid so many animation pops and cheats in the camera cuts.

@ja2ke I want to go back and play Poker Night fairly often, but then remembering the presence of Tycho makes it less appealing. 🙁

I could probably compartmentalize and contextualize that baggage if I tried, but it's also upsetting because I know PNatI is so good regardless

@SL128 You can always play Poker Night 2 instead. Choose your poison.

@ja2ke Poker Night 2 is also good, but I felt like too many of the characters played the role of straight man. But I should probably try to go back to it now that I've actually watched The Venture Bros., and Evil Dead movies!
