The people you come across the internet during gaming are often trolls and genuinely bad human beings. So it nice to be reminded that the good outweighs the bad in our community. There are good people that prove games bring us together for better. The popular VR game called VRChat had a player that suffered a seizure in-game.
Players around him immediately noticed what’s going on and did there best to help him. Players around him were genuinely concerned about his health and if he’s OK. They even surrounded him to make sure players with LED colors don’t come into his line of sight.
The player still had his headset on so another episode triggered by LED colors was a genuine concern. Even though they couldn’t actually do anything to help him, all of the players handled the situation very well.
If you don’t know what VRChat is, here is the game’s official description.
Imagine a world where anything is possible. Join a game of capture the flag in outer space. Share stories around a campfire while roasting marshmallows, then moments later experience a retro game of bowling with an alien and robot. In VRChat there is something around every corner that will delight, thanks to the power of true user-generated content. Jump into hundreds of awe-inspiring environments and meet unique avatars every day. Watch a movie on the moon. Ride the Titanic. Step into a new world every time you come online. In VRChat, you are one of us. Enjoy your stay.
Chat using full spatialized 3-d audio in a wide variety of environments.
Use emotes, emoji, and hand gestures to communicate fully with your entire body. We have avatars with incredible technology, including mouths that really match your speech and eyes that actually look at you. Our full IK system tracks when you lean or crouch.
All in all, VRChat has the most expressive avatars around!
The game is available to download on Steam.
