Okay, I'm not saying Dark Souls on the Oculus Rift would work in any real sense, and I'm not saying the appeal wouldn't wear off either. But seriously — who wouldn't want the chance to disappear into Firelink Shrine, with the music... and that annoying guy who tells you to ring the bells. I don't know if I could play through the entire game like this, but I sure want to experience it.
The crazy thing about the Oculus Rift is the feeling of actually disappearing into an environment. It's a difficult thing to describe, but an incredible thing to experience. Getting the chance to disappear into the universe of Dark Souls is a pretty tantalising thought.
The best thing about the above video is watching a Dark Souls veteran get completely hyped over the smallest, most insignificant parts of Dark Souls — like fighting a standard enemy, or simply moving across an environment.
It's also fun to watch the player quickly realise that Dark Souls is not optimised for the Oculus Rift, and how awkward and weird the combat is! All things considered he does a pretty good job. Definitely worth a watch.
