We Make Half-Life: Alyx’s Beautiful World A VR Nightmare Hellscape | Potato Mode

Here on Potato Mode, we take our favorite games and turn their graphics into absolute mush for your enjoyment. This week, we kick it up a notch by stepping into the world of VR with Half-Life: Alyx.

Alyx is without a doubt one of the most impressive-looking VR games to date, and returning to City 17 after all these years is a real treat, which makes it all the more hilarious when we completely ruin its graphics. It’s a real trip in particular for Jean-Luc who is experiencing the whole thing up close in virtual reality. Thankfully it didn’t make him sick!

If you’re curious about Half-Life: Alyx, you can check out our video where we tested the game on the four biggest VR headsets. Or watch Michael Higham’s review, where he gave the game a 9/10, saying, “Not only has Half-Life: Alyx made good on its shift to VR, it has elevated many of the aspects we’ve come to love about Half-Life games.”
