VR games, particularly those in the horror genre, are made to illicit often violent reactions out of the people that use them. So it is important that you set it up properly in a way that will not end up damaging you, your property, and the unit itself. While virtual reality units are not that expensive, it is still generally good to care for your VR unit if you really want to get the most out of it.
Virtual reality is best experienced when you have sufficient rest. As it is normally a rather immersive experience, you end up pepping your visual and auditory senses with a lot of stimulation. If you are not well-rested, you end up providing yourself with a lackluster experience.

We understand that it may be quite tempting to stay in your virtual reality simulation as there is just so much you can do in there.
To close, with all things there must be moderation. Virtual Reality is truly an incomparable experience—provided that you do use it properly. Try to look back on how you utilize virtual reality in your life. What ways have you been neglecting proper usage?
