I wish they wouldn't have made movement in Alyx so cumbersome. I feel it would have been better to allow the hat to control movement instead of that weird warping movement they have.

I want to get Alyx, but it seems like a lot of money for a reported 13 hours of game play.
13hrs sounds short for a game, but in VR is a lot.

Ive been doing 1-2hr stretches. Keep in mind you are standing, moving around, bending down to pick stuff up. Its a lot more demanding than pancake mode.

I love pancakes, but they're not good for my diabetes. So I only get to enjoy a couple when the A1C allows. So delicious, especially with real maple syrup.

Why do they continue to push games to get me off the couch? Wii started it and now I can't sit there with only my thumbs and fingers moving.

My 100hrs in Skrim VR was fantastic how much better is this? $50 is a lot of money.
Plus to earn $50 now I am risking my life.

I feel old, I've been playing games on the go since the old school portable handheld games which eventually lead to my getting an original Gameboy. Which I was still playing the original versions of Pokemon Red & Blue on as late as 2003.

Great Leader, you did not answer the question. Do not become a media type person question dodger. (how much better is this? ) IE alyx compared to Skyrim and is it $50 worth of game. I am one of your scum victims so keep it real. If I buy Alxy that means no test donation next month! I can not do both.

I cant tell you if its worth it to you or not.

For me, I would pay $60 to play the newest Half Life game. I waited a long time to get back into that universe.

If you are not really big into Half Life, I would wait for a sale and get it at half price.

I would say no.

The game play is linear, you need to get from point A to point B.
