Virtual Sex: Will VR Result In The Adult Gaming Renaissance?
We all see this coming, don't we?
It almost seems inevitable that 2016's explosion of virtual reality entertainment will result in the rise of adult-oriented games designed specifically for VR. I mean, such a thing is tailor-made for the porn industry, right?
I still remember working at Electronics Boutique back in the late '90s, and there was always that super dusty Playboy game in the PC section. Eventually, we just moved it to the top, where nothing can be reached without a ladder, and there it lived out its days until it was finally shipped away in a box of other unwanted inventory. Leisure Suit Larry games didn't fare much better, let me tell you.
While digital porn skyrocketed, interactive adult entertainment didn't really do much. Now, however, perhaps the time has come for that multi-billion dollar industry to reinvest big time in games. With Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vice and Google Cardboard, 2016 is shaping up to be the year for next-level virtual reality entertainment. And if the porn peeps don't get their greedy grimy little paws into it in some fashion, I'll be shocked. Let's face it, there are still plenty of sexually repressed, socially stunted teens out there that need another reason to stay home...or something like that.
But anyway, I'm willing to bet that the first adult VR games are already in development, and we'll see them sooner rather than later.
