It’s called EmuVR and it’s offering old-school gamers a potentially brilliant way to play all their classic game ROMs in a virtual bedroom just like the one from their childhoods, with a huge range of classic gaming consoles to choose from, played on old CRT TVs (or modern displays if you prefer), ’80s/’90s posters on the walls, and lots more cool features:
