I just can't believe this is an actual video game

The future of gaming is here. For real. I know that we've heard it so many times that the phrase has become a tired cliché. But now, for the first time, we are seeing it: Games that can be confused with reality using devices that make our brains believe we are immersed in that reality. Just watch this trailer.
