I just recently purchased the Oculus Quest 2 and let me tell you something I’m loving it so far and there are a couple things about it that I really wish I could change. But let me tell you I do not regret it, so stay tuned because in this article, I’m going to be talking about why you should get the Oculus Quest 2 for 2022. So, let’s get right into it.
Today we’re going to be talking about and reviewing the Oculus Quest 2 and I’m going to be talking about the things I love about it and a couple of the things that I wish were better or I could change there’s a lot of pros and a little bit of cons. So, let’s start off with the pros first.
Oculus Quest 2
The very first thing I want to talk about is the Portability. So, you can literally take this wherever you want to go, you could throw it in your backpack, if you see there is no wires whatsoever and that’s what I love this device but with that being said the fact that you can literally just charge it up, put it in your backpack and take it anywhere you want is amazing to me and for the low price of 299.
The next thing I want to talk about the price of this is the same price as Xbox Series X or even a Nintendo Switch but you’re getting so much with this. For 299 the experience you get, the games you get and the amount of utility you get like even for your office job or like coding job or anything like that is just fantastic and its amazing. So, I definitely love this device when it comes to the price like I said 299 is amazing but you also have to take the cost of games into consideration.
So, when I bought this it was obviously 299, I got beat saber which is 30 that is an amazing game I highly recommended it. I got another game of it was 39.99, so like 40 bucks it was the walking dead which is awesome and then I also got a mini golf game which is 15 bucks these are all great.
However, it does kind of tend to add up after a while but as long as you get games you like and that you think you’re gonna play all the time, then you’re set and that kind of brings me to the next thing which is the whole gaming experience or VR experience with this thing in general as you can see there are kind of sensors, right here around it which you don’t even need to use your controllers if you’re using like office test stuff or even using just the desktop on here.
So, what I did is I actually went inside the headset recorded a video and here it is, this is me inside the headset showing you all of the cool things not only games but also work task items that could be used in the Oculus Quest and why I think you should get it. Alright guys, so now you’re in here with me, so I’m going to show you around a little bit inside it’s really cool look, it tracks your thumb and everything like that, and I’m going to be in the little corner if you want to see me in real life.
So, literally what I’m doing, I got a couple games and first let me tell you I love the fact that you can actually change your environment. So, this is one I picked, it’s a little space environment. I think it’s pretty sick, but if you want to change it, go to settings and show you settings and everything’s really easy once you get the hang of it. So, this is the default one that sorts you out at which is pretty cool and then you got this one which is also really sick and if you notice like if I go outside the boundary a little bit, you see that like it shows me where it is.
So, you know like I was saying you can go through any of these, these are all really cool and I’m telling you right now, being inside of here is just a super different experience.
The Walking Dead
This one’s really cool because look at my hands, you can see like I do thumbs up, it tracks your thumbs, shooting guns, double guns and then just look at my hands, so, what I’m going to do in this game like there are side missions, it’s cool because you have like a backpack. This one is my favourite game of all the time, you have your backpack, you have your gun, you have your knife, you got your flashlight and you got your journal everything’s just really dope.
Like you could pick things like this, now, this game is dope, I’m still looking for a Zombie to kill, but one thing I do want to mention is the fact that whenever you’re playing games that like, you have to move around, it gets you a little dizzy at first, but at least for me after a while it’s good but that shooting game I was talking about gum raiders with like the boost and everything like that, it’s a little bit harder because like you’re like using your jet pack like even sprinting right now in this game is getting me a little dizzy.
Okay, so this next part that I’m in right here is powerful productivity, this is something that I really recommend that you should use this for if you work form home a lot or even if you code or just want to be in a different world whenever you’re getting your work done. So, yes games are amazing on here and if you are a gamer like myself, I highly recommend you get it, but if you’re somebody who wants to get it for something like this, like where you can meetin VR have meetings or even do all of your work, it’s really great.
So, I’m gonna play this real quick just so you can kind of see what this is about really sick. Now you could hook up your screen you could do all that stuff, it’s I’m telling you this is an amazing piece of technology, facebook really outdated themselves with this. So, now that we talked a lot about the pros and you got to see a little bit of footage. Now I kind of want to talk about the cons.
So, when it comes to this device it’s amazing and I love it, but the battery life is not that long like it’s like a three and half hour battery life and it takes a little while for it to charge. To be honest, the charger type is the USB type C, you also got the headphone jack and then you got a couple of the volume and a couple other items too but what I want to talk about is just the fact that the battery does not last too long.
They do sell an additional battery pack that you could put on the back of your headset and hook it up, so it does last longer I think that’s like a hundred dollars though so, if you want it you should get it, I think I actually might and that’s another thing that’s kind of a con for me is just all the accessories just because, Yes I love the accessories but there’s so many I feel like you have to buy in order to make this work, like we were just talking about the battery pack.
If you want it charged more than three hours I’m a gamer and I love gaming, I game for more than three hours sometimes you need to get that battery pack, which is an additional hundred dollars or like I said earlier I like to put this in my backpack and take it anywhere, but part of me is afraid of putting it in my backpack because I’m afraid like something in there will scratch the lens like then you have to get the carrying case which is also another 50 bucks.
So, I mean it’s really cool but then at the same time it’s like you could have added possibly a really cheap like Nylon case or some sort of like case in there, even if it’s cheap just so we could have it just so, it’s protected from all the other stuff in my backpack but, you like I said may be that’s just me who cares if you got money below it on the accessories I probably am gonna buy the carrying case.
The battery pack, I don’t know I’m a little concerned about that, I don’t know I might buy but in general this device is just amazing, I absolutely love it, watching Tv like I realized they had some basketball games on there. it’s super sick I love this device.
So, with all that being said, do I think that you should get the Oculus Quest 2? Absolutely, if you’ve been thinking about and you’re like on the fence just do it, just get it I promise you won’t regret it at all, this is such an amazing piece of technology, the experience is amazing, the games are crazy and the fact that you could take it with you, take it to your families, take it to your cousins, take it anywhere and have everyone experience this, it is just an amazing product I love it.
If you have an Xbox and you’re like you want to switch it up you want to change or something like that, this is definitely the change you need, get the Oculus Quest I promise, you will be a hundred percent satisfied. I love this Pizza tech and I’m gonna be playing it for a very long time. So, let me know in the comments below how you feel and your thoughts on the Oculus Quest 2, if you’re gonna get one or if you have one already just let me know I’m really interested to see what you think.
