    I saw something on TV about it.

    I don’t think the target audience knows much about VR let alone owns the necessary equipment. They would decrease their potential customer base significantly if they went this route. TS5 will probably only require a potato computer like TS4.

    i hope they don't add it in vr that sounds so boring and the gameplay would be so lacking

    I hope not unless it was optional. I can’t play vr or most first person games because of motion sickness.

    They could always do an offshoot VR Sims game.

    I don't know what VR is, but first person play is also out for me for the very same reason. Besides, I'm not into multi-player style games.

    Probably never gonna happen, you need a good computer unless it's a standalone VR headset and VR headsets are also very expensive.

    if you want sims in vr you can literally just turn off the computer and go live like bruh what is even the point
    I can’t play vr or most first person games because of motion sickness.

    also this. and i don't even really like playing first person cause its just annoying to me

    then again i really don't care what they do with sims 5 anymore tbh cause I don't really think I'm gonna end up playing it unless its shockingly good right off the bat which tbh i don't see happening

    id rather they just keep improving 4
    or do fun spinoff

    I don't want it in the Sims personally. It's not something that I feel the game needs and I wouldn't like to see development time wasted on it.

    Nah, what would be the point?





    *wonders how some of our (my) favorite mods will work with this... 😇

    I am 47. VR has been All The Rage 5 times since I bought my first PC.
    Still not buying a VR headset until you can get a top model < 50 dollars. I am not paying more for a headset than what my computer cost.

    Oh, please no.

    As much as I enjoy VR games, I like watching my little Sim-ants scurry around. Aaaand the only place/time I have ever had motion sickness in my life is VR, so it takes a lot of prep, constant head-bobbing, and a time limit to play.

    I remember hearing about VR back in the 1990s. It's a bad idea. VR causes seisures & brain damage with long time use.

    VR is still insanely expensive and requires a pretty high end computer to run properly - even the cheapest headsets and still around $300

    if they added VR it would be an option in the settings but i don't see them bothering as VR is still a niche group and no where near mainstream enough. The steam hardware survey shows only 18 or so % of users have a headset

    most people who play the sims i doubt have high end or even mid range computers

    I have no interest in this at all. I think VR makes sense in first person mode but I don't think it will add much in a game where you see the world from above.
  • ZorgaZorga Posts: 592 Member
    No no no. I play with sims, I am not a sim myself!

    I doubt it, they added first person mode to 4 a few years ago and the game really doesn't play well like that. You'd need a heavy overhaul of how the game actually plays to make it work well on VR... Technically with this first person mode though you can probably already play VR if you know how to get the screen onto a headset, but it's not great.

    Just imagine.

    The Sims 5 is a virtual reality Sims game.

    Humans just put on their VR headsets and interact with objects and other Humans/Sims.

    Humans can also create a fictional Human Sim, create the House by moving physical objects like brick and mortar, and allow the Sim to walk into the House and examine it. The Human creator can also turn on the stove and burn the house, killing the Sims.

    I don't really want it. I find VR suited to first person games. Not so much third person, and certainly not anything that requires a lot of UI like the Sims. If it's some sort of novel, optional, isolated, extra DLC, fine. However, VR is going to bump up the required PC specs and throttle the management side of the game.

    Plus it is still prohibitively expensive in my opinion, especially for the game quality and quantity available.
