|With the recent release of next generation virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR, people have gained the ability to see and experience things they never thought possible.
Users can put themselves into scenarios scarier than any haunted house, blast off into space to fight their friends in stomach-turning spaceships, or even jump into their 30-meter-tall (100 ft) robots to play city-destroying golf, among countless other games and programs.
Or, as an overwhelming number of people have done, pick up the first gun they see and shoot themselves right in the face for no reason other than to see if they can. Surprisingly, in almost every virtual reality game involving a gun, you can.
Developers are setting aside time and resources to let people kill themselves in games where there is no need to do it, just because the developers know that people are going to try.
