Who else wants to play the Sims in VR?

Imagine being able to pick up your sims, build their houses, open their closets and wardrobes, plant gardens, and fish in game with your own hands. Let's make Project Rene available in VR as well as normal flat screen!

    No thanks, I'm personally not interested in that. That's what RL is for. I have no desire to be doing things in a game, if I wanted to do those things I I would just do them in the real world.

    Oh I'm into that, but I probably wouldn't be able to afford the gear.

    I like the idea of First-person view returning, only less choppy and less motion-sickness inducing. If we could combine the two and have both work, this would be great! One person on the team added this as their personal project - I was fooled into thinking the entire team had contributed to this as a feature, though a buggy one. If this was built in from the start, I think it would work WAY better, and more smoothly.
    I have been playing The Sims since 2001, when Livin Large came out. My avatar deliberately looks like Chris Roomies from TS1.

    Nope. An expensive dilution of what comes across as an already over extended project. Throw VR in and a lot of potential players have been left behind.

    Not interested. I don't like those kinds of goggles that disconnect me visually from my surroundings.

    Nope I don't want to be a Sim also imaging all the other Sim getting exhausted after a Sim day and going to bed whilst you yourself are fully awake walking around the house all the night waiting for the other Sims to wake up.

    I would be interested, especially looking at the sim world through the eyes of my simself. That would be awesome and engaging.

    I never knew how awesome VR could be til I tried it myself, and I do love it, but the sinister side of giant corporations getting us to sign user agreements few ever read, that lwf them record and listen on on not only us on gameplay, but our surroundings, other household members kr visitors, conversations, names, specific words..and they all want everything we do online all nice synced up together and open to them. That's the part I hate and what keeps me from going all in, with VR. It is that amazing to be able to socialize and interact with friends, relatives who live far away, etc. You can watch movies in the same room and see each other's avatars, attend cool dance events, wear nit only any clothes you like but any body you like.

    But the giant corporations salivating and rubbing their hands together over total surveillance makes me angry.
