Half-life: Alyx

In many VR games, players often have to make up for getting used to using weapons in the virtual world, slowing things down, or simplifying certain mechanics. Half-Life: Alyx introduces the concept of manually emptying the clip on the pistol, inserting a new clip, and storing the slides in a rack, keeping your head club zombies out of your hands while giving you your abilities. I trust you refreshingly.

Launching the game in VR makes the experience even more surreal, dodging, avoiding, revenge, leaving traces of cosmic dust and driving players into space at incredible speeds.
