Lol yea, if anything, I'd likely have two options, one that moves the gun with your head, up/down, left/right, and tilting, and the other option would just move the gun left and right with your head but keep it aiming forward, and not letting it tilt, since doom has an autoaim thing, would keep it more vanilla feeling i think.

None. That's something that really couldn't be done outside the engine.

That's not even something that would be suited to this very well. the weapons are usually just flat sprites, the most you can do is rotate it around one axis before it starts to look like garbage.

Fast movement is not at all an integral part of Doom. Shooting is an integral part of Doom.
But I think if the movement speed of the player is reduced, the movement speed of the monsters also might have to be reduced.

Its my personal opinion, that in doom, player speed is trivial, and reliant on player preferences. If changing that is a deal breaker then why is the option already there? I personally wouldnt need to lower the monster speed to match mine, i'd just shoot them more lol. But that's only if i felt like changing my speed, which i tried last night just for the hell of it.

Wow, just read about this Rift-supported omni directional treadmill. Can't wait for these VR gear to become mass-produced consumer stuff! Looks like I will be able to enjoy full VR games in my lifetime after all... provided I don't get hit by a bus or something soon XD

Somebody used a microphone to detect when a player was breathing in or out and was able to reflect it in game by adding a gas masky darth vadery effect. Could also be used to stretch and compress the players chest to simulate pushing and pulling air.

I find you a little harder to stomach with each post. Cmon dude.

In all seriousness, I see the oculus going hand-in-hand with omni treadmills. Really cool to have something a good deal like the virtual reality we've all seen in the past in tv and books. Maybe it would provide a new weight-lose incentive? Especially for games that have uncapped stamina, like say, Doom, where you could keep running and burning more calories to make doom guy avoid a monster ambush, or you could bunker down behind some cover and try your luck at that.
