    "on the surface, VRChat may come off as weird and full of ERPs and ugandan knuckles memes (and you'd be right), but underneath that, it's actually got a very decent community that provides a truly immersive social experience not many VR games have. i mean, the customization of avatars can really help people transcend barriers of creativity and identity. this is THE best free game for oculus rift for how much it does as a community."

    "the only reason im giving this game a high score of 4.5 is because it does what it's intended to do and literally scare the sh*t out of you. the minus is because it does not give a warning to prepare an extra pair of underwear before playing"

    "pros: very good story, realistic immersion and space physics, and beautiful graphics that brought a tear to my eye. cons: the very same praiseworthy space physics can be disorienting with all the spinning and zero gravity shenanigans"

    "until we get a vr game of tron or ender's game, this is a very nice substitute. my only issue is that the arena is free but the single player campaign and combat mode are pricey"

    "i'd first like to state that i actually enjoy this game. the environments are so rich and interactive and full of life. it really embraces the exploration concept. that said, the reason im giving a 3.5 is for how much i'd recommend it. not many people are like me and are willing to manage exploration and cultivation in a VR game. it is a bit tedious and im not sure how many people enjoy this kind of game like i would."
