What Kind of Game Do You Want to Play?
If you’re new to gaming, check out our breakdown of video-game types for help selecting a portal into a virtual world of fantasy.
Role-Playing Game: Originally born from old pen-and-paper role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons, these games require players to complete a series of quests as they progress toward a linear story’s conclusion. Plot and character interaction are important here, and you’ll often take a large role in defining your character’s traits and skills.
Great if you were a kid who: acted in the school play; customized your Barbies with haircuts and crayoned-on makeup
Examples: Diablo, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect
First-Person Shooter: These games put powerful weapons in your hands, and instead of controlling a puppet-like character on screen, you’ll see the world from your character’s eyes. There are options for story- and mission-based play, and shooter games often sync with an online platform that lets you face off against players from around the world.
Great if you were a kid who: turned every inanimate object into a gun; took fencing lessons
Examples: Call of Duty, Halo, Doom
Open World: Instead of following a strictly linear story, open-world games nestle a core story inside a large world full of dozens—if not hundreds—of side quests and adventures. While the main story may take no more time to complete than a standard game, the additional quests allow for hours of extra gameplay.
Great if you were a kid who: buried treasure in the back yard and drew elaborate maps
Examples: Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, No Man’s Sky
Massively Multiplayer Online Game: MMOGs are most often played on PCs and require an internet connection. Games are constantly populated with characters created by thousands of players. They might team up—in groups of 2 or 200—to accomplish quests, or they might fight against each other.
Great if you were a kid who: played sports; campaigned for class president
Examples: Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, Planetside
Episodic: Instead of presenting one massive story at the outset, episodic games deliver short scenes on a semi-regular basis, which build on each other to create a richly developed narrative. These games are downloaded straight to players’ consoles or computers, and often focus more on story than on combat.
Great if you were a kid who: devoured chapter-book series whole; preferred continuity in your Saturday-morning cartoons
Examples: Tales from the Borderlands, The Walking Dead, Life is Strange

About Outer Limits Virtual Reality
Outer Limits Virtual Reality helps their guests immerse themselves in an entirely new world. With the help of HTC Vive stations, visitors descend into virtual reality, interacting with the space around them in a unique way. Read on to learn more about just a few of the dozens of available VR experiences.
- Destinations: Calmer pace, designed to explore regions of the earth and space. The Blu experience takes you to the depths of the ocean, getting up close and personal with sea turtles and jelly fish or going eye-to-eye with a blue whale from the deck of a sunken pirate ship.
- Toybox: If you can see it, you can interact with it. The hit VR game Job Simulator takes guests into a humor-filled space where they cook plates of food, fix cars, or just cause general mayhem, all under the watchful eye of cute robots.
- Arcade Shooter: A take on a classic shooting gallery, guests become master marksmen. Space Pirate Trainer features flying robots just waiting to be gunned down, as you dual-wield your way through endless waves with six gun modes and an energy shield/baton.
- Horror: Only for those with nerves of steel, guests get their blood pumping in scary experiences; the zombie apocalypse in Brookhaven Experiment has visitors fighting for their lives, defending themselves with a gun, grenades, and machete, as monsters close in from all directions.
