VRChat Starts To Catch On

Of the few VR focused virtual worlds, VRChat is the one that reminds me the most of early SL:

VRChat is a bizarre phenomenon that has Twitch, YouTube obsessed

VRChat is just barreling through every stage SL went through at lightspeed. It's either going to come out on top as champion of next virtual world or destroy itself. I'm not sure which.

The interactions with other people, and how random things can be in VR Chat is very, very early SL-like. I felt that spark of familiarity of the early days or SL where everyone seemed to just want to be creative and have fun, and the grid wasn't so filled with special snowflakes. It can be fun in short doses.

Plus the rampant IP infringement is also very SL-like .

From what little I've seen so far, VR Chat appears to be rowdy, disjointed, rude, chaotic, and bursting with the creative energy that comes from a community of people building things for themselves and others. Compare that to the static showcases on Sansar, empty of people, and you get a real sense of how you get very different results from a user-centric development design. VR Chat has it, Sansar does not.

Most of the videos look like 2006 infohubs' addled shenanigans, which has it's plus and minuses.

It's not a place I would visit, based on what I've seen so far (which included the inevitable and pervasive sexual harassment of female avatars). But I can recognize the sheer energy of the place. People are having fun. That's what I felt the moment I logged into SL back in 2006 -- it was fun. Immediately and for years to come, there just seemed to be so much to do that there weren't enough hours in the day to try them all.

No matter how impressive the Sansar graphics (and what I've seen is very impressive), there's just not much for me to do there other than admire someone else's creative effort. I can enjoy that for short periods of time every now and then, but it's not compelling, it doesn't absorb me the way that SL did.

It looks exactly like early SL.

I do not miss early SL.

I popped in to try it with a friend in desktop mode, it was quite fun wandering around trying out avatars and watching the assorted madness going on around us.

Would love to try it out in VR though, I feel it would be way better.

This is a little chilling.

User succumbs to a seizure in virtual reality while other players can only watch
Quote:
While playing around in VRChat, an online virtual community, YouTuber Rogue Shadow VR noticed a player who appeared to be in trouble. His character — a red and black robot — was writhing on the floor and gasping in what appeared to be an epileptic seizure.

In the original video, spotted by Motherboard, Rogue Shadow VR explains that because the player had full body tracking, those in the online room were suddenly bystanders to his real-life dilemma. “There was no way we could tell at first, because all we see is this character he’s playing as,” Rogue Shadow VR says. VRChat is a strange platform to begin with, one where players can appear as any avatar they make, from pokémon and Rick & Morty characters to imagery from problematic memes. It’s typical for players to goof off or otherwise act out of turn.
