The Most Exhausting Way To Play Team Fortress 2

Remember Omni, the virtual reality/treadmill hybrid that allows you to walk and look around naturally in a game—like Skyrim? This time, Virtuix, the folks behind the tech, are back with footage of the Omni, Team Fortress 2 and the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset running all at once. This is as immersive as you can get—and it makes playing TF2 seem potentially exhausting.

Can you imagine running around as the Scout for extended periods of time? It would be a workout! Would you play Team Fortress 2 like this?

Uhh, I don't get it. Is he aiming with the headset or the gun? Cause until we get some games where you can look and aim independently this seems like it would be pretty disorienting. I would feel really weird pointing a gun around when my face is controlling the reticule, I think, and I have to think it would feel almost equally weird controlling the view port with a gun in my hands and having it not respond when I move my head. I guess you just have to get used to not moving your upper body around too much or something?
