Doc has been fascinated by videogames since before they were fun. He's worked in the games industry as a writer, designer, and tester. VR is something of an obsession for him, and he believes it's the most exciting development in gaming since Pong. His favorite VR games are Superhot, Sairento Untethered, Racket Fury, Skyrim VR, I Expect You to Die, and Beat Saber. His favorite non-VR games are The Witcher 3, Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Resident Evil 4, and Return of the Obra Dinn.
