Virtual reality (VR), which simulates experiences that are either similar to the real world of entirely invented, has become increasingly popular over the recent years. Instead of being something fringe and almost sci-fi, the tech used has become more widely available, allowing developers to use VR platforms in video game development — and beyond. 

As is the case with video games, VR platforms are now being leveraged by the likes of everyone from healthcare professionals to real-estate agents because the simulation-creating tech allows them to create a better, more valuable patient, or customer, experience. While screens allow us to peer into worlds, VR tech actually immerses us in three-dimensional worlds. 

Yes, it all sounds pretty high-tech, but you can easily scoop up a VR headset at your local Best Buy if you're so inclined. The only problem? There are a lot of options out there — and a VR headset can be quite the investment. So, if you're a beginner, is something like the ever-popular Oculus Quest 2 your best bet for taking that first step into VR experiences? Let's find out.
