This is truly something new and groundbreaking.
I've had little to no VR use in my life up until this point, and I went all in with an Index and a monster computer to run it.
5800x-3080 runs this like butter at 144Hz, probably could max it on cheaper hardware since the Source engines are known for flexing well. Never been a huge Half Life fan but I enjoyed the series enough, this does not require having played the previous games at all to enjoy.

I was told that I wanted an experience not a new game and boy does that hit the nail on the head.
Everything from the introduction to mechanics, the story and characters is amazing. Even after reaching half way through the game I started to feel as if there was nothing "new" to show me and I was of course wrong. Through to the last chapter there's new elements brought before you to give you that extra level of presence or just make things trippy.
Valve absolutely knows what they're doing here and are certainly ahead of the curve, I'm beyond excited to see what sort of new hardware and software they release for VR in the coming years. Another great quote I heard that resonates with me is that the most disappointing part of the game is that it's over.
But there is plenty of workshop content to burn through as well too.

If you doubted VR in the past, this is not only a proof of concept but actually sets the bar so high that most other VR games just feel incomplete or cheesy at this point.

TLDR: GIVE LORD GABEN YOUR MONEY
