A more humorous possible game for the Rift would be Surgeon Simulator 2013



It's a funny game where it's very impossible to have that much dexterity and doing brain surgery in this game will have you ending up saying, "Eh good enough." Since it's in a first person view it would be a really hilarious experience.

That game looks pretty funny. The Rift could use some comedy. But I would be screaming from frustration out of not being able to pick up anything.
This game should be called Drunk Surgeon Simulator.

This is definitely the kind of game that would be absorbing with the Oculus. And medical students could benefit from similar software and actually make them better doctors, as they could practice on virtual patients instead of me! :lol:

As soon as I saw support for this, I flipped. I love playing surgeon simulator, and this is an awesome addition. Maybe the Oculus can be used for ACTUALLY simulating surgeries in the future? You never know.

That is hilarious. I've never actually played the game ,but the video was pretty funny.
I'd love to see more funny and weird stuff like this on the Oculus Rift.

Oh goodness, I've played Surgeon Simulator a few times, and let me just say that it is exactly what the Rift needs. The game is clearly not meant to be realistic in any way, but as for the virtual reality aspect, you will definitely feel at home in the role of uneducated doctor.

That game looks hilarious. Even in a realistic surgeon simulator, I'd probably do the exact same things. I the Rift could be used for educational purposes like this though. We're reaching a point where technology is becoming so advanced and realistic that students could use technology such as the Rift as prep before actually doing surgery. It would obviously never replace the real thing or say practicing on cadavers, but it would still be a very useful option, as cadavers are not available 24/7.

I saw on a news show that some surgeons were using a Nintendo Wii game to practice doing surgery. It's not a perfect simulation but they were using the game to sharpen their hand eye coordination. This is why I disagree when people say that video games aren't useful or educational.

Have you seen those Adult Swim games like 5 Minutes To Kill Yourself? I would like to see more indie games for the Rift that have that kind of sarcastic humor. But obviously with better graphics.
