    Oculus Dreamdeck is the very first thing I show to everyone.

    Then I switch depending on the people. Introduction to VR, Project Cars with wheel, ABE...

    Always Dreamdeck! It short and sweet and always shows off great examples of the power of VR.

    Then depending on the person I will show them an animation like Henry, Lost, Showdown etc and then some games but again depends if the person is a gamer.

    Definitely got to have them try The Elevator Ritual! It is only about 10 minutes, but it does a great job of implementing 'room scale' in a vr experience and is absolutely terrifying!

    My friend is a massive gamer so I decided to show him 'Return to Dinosaur Island 2' for his first ever VR experience, he looked down and about s*** his pants, letting out a cry of terror. A magical moment, I then went on to show him the other demo's like Dreamdeck for example.

    You have to be careful - friend of mine bent over to pick up a gun in in the train carriage in BT. He tried to lever himself up on a train seat that wasn't there - faceplant.

    1. First Contact
    2. Bullet Train

    What follows depends on the person I'm showing.

    I did have one friend get so into Bullet Train he actually tried to run for cover. Luckily the patio door was double glazed and survived my desk chair being rammed into it! Thankfully the rift and controllers survived and therefore so did he! I sat him on the floor and let him watch Henry after that. lol

    Oh and apparently letting a 10 year old girl meet a cartoon rabbit the same height as her in "Invasion" will actually scare the crap out of her!

    My son showed his girlfriend Superhot and THAT was fun to watch.  She never quite figured out the time physics and instead of pausing and thinking she steadily started running around faster and faster shrieking until she head butted the wall (Oculus survived).  And that's with a full 15'X 15' space with a 10' X 8' guardian!  Good times!

    Farlands does a great job in selling VR to non-gamers. It's the game my wife has played most. And when demoing the VR to my brother and his wife, it helped convince his wife that getting a Rift might not be such a bad idea. :)

    OK.  I now have Space Pirate Trainer at the top of the list.  Quick to load, super easy to learn and play (just blast everything) and a lot of fun.  You don't have to show them the shield or other guns just give them the auto blasters and watch them go crazy.  I talked my (Luddite) wife into playing a game and *she* loved it!

    Surprised no mention of The Lab.  Even though it's for Vive, it's really impressive with Rift too.
    Currently playing: Witcher 3 & DOOM | Gear: Liquid cooled MSI Z170A PC Mate | Intel i7-6700K | 32GB DDR4 SDRAM 3000 Mhz | GeForce GTX 1080, Acer Predator XB241H G-Sync, Rift/Touch/3 cams.

    4 and 5 are purely hypothetical, but...

    4) Annie Amber

    5) Vendetta Online VR (I am a huge fan, and take every opportunity I can to talk about this masterpiece)

    The Lab

    So "hands down" it's not even funny. All you guys who say "Dreamdeck", I am sure you never seen "The Lab". Yes I know it's by Valve...but this is no Fanboism here or anything. It's simply the best VR demo I have seen, ever. Try it out and you will see. Dreamdeck is "nice", but I think Valve schooled Oculus there although "First Contact" is nice as well. I know the potential is there, these guys who made Dreamdeck and First Contact are good too but it still can't reach "The Lab", imho.

    Some of us don't have Touch, so 'The Lab' doesn't work.

    One of my newest favourite experiences is to show NEW people to VR is the 'Shark Cage Scene' in Ocean Rift.
    Get them to put on the Rift, and bring up the eye calibration screen, then tell them to close their eyes for a few seconds as you boot up 'Ocean Rift' Click on the 'Great White' icon and as soon as it loads in ask them to open their eyes... the reaction so far has been priceless. (Don't forget these people have never seen VR before so to them its 100% real) Then show them the other underwater scenes with the dolphins and killer whales. They cannot stop talking about it afterwards.

    LA 2097 - Precipice. To someone who's had a rift for a while they might not rate it that high, having already played immersive gaming. I tried it when i first got my rift and it was amazing. Also Doll city felt amazing too. I actually bought a rift after watching a doll city game play through google cardboard.


    La 2097
    Doll City
    Sampa VR (plays fine on the CV1with some mod i forget the name of)
    The Blue
    Dream Deck, Modded to only show, the Alien scene, the T-rex Scene, And the Oculus city scene.
