Still don't know what all the buzz over Virtual Reality play is about? Well, aside from being super affordable - it's actually a blast. And you don't have to be a kid or a tech whiz to enjoy it. Get ready to get real with Lindsey Granger as she shows you how VR fun is for anyone and everyone.

1. VR for Beginners

You don't have to get the biggest and best setups to enjoy VR play. If you want to get a taste of what VR is like, try out the $15 Google Cardboard or the $40 Samsung Gear VR. These handheld setups come with simple games and scenes that will still put you in the driver's seat on a wild ride, without being too overwhelming. You can get used to controls and the feeling of virtual reality, while still having fun.

These sets are perfect for someone who just wants to see what VR play is like before diving into more hands-on gameplay, or, for someone who loves watching their favorite show and wants to feel like their a part of the action.

2. VR for the Bold

Once you're ready to dive further into the world of VR play, you can take your gaming to a whole new level with roomscale virtual reality. These setups put you into the game you're playing and lets you do things like fight off monsters or score points in sport style games like The Thrill of the Fight by using your whole body to play.

And if you think this type of play would cost your wallet too much cash, don't be shy about holding out for a little longer. With more and more VR systems coming onto the market, prices for games and setups are dropping every year!

3. VR for the Advanced

If you try out roomscale virtual reality and love it then you might be ready for augmented reality games. This VR system turns the world around you into a game, like the popular Star Wars Challenges game that lets you train like a jedi, in your own living room.

But these types of setups aren't just for gaming. As VR becomes more popular, companies are using it to create learning environments from bringing your anatomy to life to help you learn about your body or even putting entire planets in your home to teach you about planets.
