VR has been far from hot out the gate. Despite this, on it’s launch day, HTC Vive exclusive, Raw Data has reached a top spot in Steam’s Top Sellers chart.

Still in Steam Early Access, the VR first-person shooter has already accumulated many very positive reviews from Steam users. And at the time of typing this very word, Raw Data is sitting pretty at the number two spot on the top sellers list.

What is Raw Data? Here’s an official description provided via the game’s official website:

“Raw Data is a made-for-VR multiplayer first-person combat game optimized for the unique Active VR capabilities of the HTC Vive, featuring whole-body gameplay with an in-game avatars, interactive weapons, dynamic defenses, badass upgrades and swaths of challenging enemies.

As the newest initiate to Rikugun’s elite ranks, your hacking skills are among the best. You’ve been tasked with bringing down Eden Corp, a massive manufacturer involved in some seriously shady business practices.

Standing between you and a geopbyte of Eden Corp’s valuable raw data: waves of single-minded battle androids permanently set to annihilate.

Your talents will get you in and give you access to Eden Corp’s entire catalog of cutting-edge weapons and defense systems. Start the download–and survive.”

My Opinion:

VR hurts my eyes. So I haven’t played Raw Data because I don’t own any VR gaming device. The game looks up to snuff though. But what would I know, I’m that guy who can’t play VR because it hurts his eyes…
