Find Out What It’s Like To Speed Around From Sonic’s POV With The Oculus Rift

Spoiler alert: it's pukey.

So we’ve established that you’re probably going to suck at virtual reality gaming for a while – you need to stop getting motion sick long enough to, you know, actually play. Here’s a game for the Oculus that will definitely not help with that – it’s Sonic the Hedgehog. In first-person.

What we’ve gained from this video is that Sonic is a stone-cold bad-ass who has no problem hurtling head-first towards doom. You can download your own copy of the game for Oculus here, if you’re so inclined/have taken lots of Gravol. YouTuber Chadtronic has also tried out my favorite N64 game ever, Mario 64, in first-person – now that I’d like to rock.
