This is normal

A tired run of Polybius is better than a great run of most games.

Six years later, I say VR is still waiting for another pure game experience equally worthy of the medium.

Sitting down to play after a long break, I am additionally impressed by how well designed it is. How clear everything is, despite incessant explosions of colour and sound. How much thought and experience must have gone into making it so. And how rewarding that makes building experience. I am not sure what I am doing different, but I clearly get into the zone quicker and deeper than ever before, despite clearly being rusty and almost failing multiple times in the first few levels.

It is probably unfair of me to be surprised. Take it as a sign of how little I trust the average game to have put thought into the things it presents.

Leave your baggage behind.
