VR is the ultimate in immersion. Something that Tetris, a game of intense focus, benefits from.

I’ve struggled to really engross myself in a game for 20 years tbh, I suspect that’s why VR is well liked by the middle-aged.

I can’t comment on the VR but playing with HDR and surround sound is a visceral experience that really gets you “in the zone”. It’s almost hypnotic. I suppose hardcore Tetris players might find it all a bit of an unnecessary distraction but as a big Mizuguchi fan and someone who’s never really got into Tetris, it’s a real rush.

I won’t be the first to say it, but it’s tetris gameplay with Lumines sound and visuals. The VR is just a little bonus.

This video convinced me to buy. I forgot how good DS Tetris was, despite putting hundreds of hours into it.

Thumper. Switch port, physical print. Some searches here threw up praise of the PS4 VR version. Adding my praise of the game too. Has a lovely 70s sci-fi aesthetic. Had to turn up the saturation on my TV to match the Switch in docked mode - was struggling to see the red colouring warning of the corners. First game that's made me hunch forward in a long time.

Makes me want a good F-Zero even more.

Playing Secret of Mana for SNES, I never really cared about RPGs before but this game is too damn beautiful, and the soundtrack makes you play for hours without realizing. Really enjoying this game so far

Destiny 2.

Downloaded it when it was being given away free, with the intention of only running through the campaign. Now I can’t stop playing it, ever since getting a machine gun that drops lightning bolts onto your target. It reminds me a lot of the Heaven Punisher from Phantasy Star Online.
