    I have some pretty crazy experiences when playing VR games on the Vive. When I was standing on a small, moving platform in the game, I would literally lose balance in real life, even though the floor I’m actually standing on isn’t moving. If I’m standing on a small, precarious platform somewhere extremely high up in the game, I actually freak out about the heights and start to lose balance, even though I’m just standing on my bedroom floor in real life. When the game had me up in space with asteroids shooting by, I would get a little scared and anxious that I would get hit, even though there’s nothing actually flying by. The sense of scale in VR can only really be understood by experiencing it too, like you said. The game on the Vive, Panoptic, is a good example of this. If you are using the VR headset to play as the floating head that kills the little people, things look really small. When you’re playing as one of the little guys trying to avoid being killed, everything looks really big.
