    A developer who is currently experimenting with virtual reality and hand-tracking technologies has created a Grand Theft Auto V mod that might leave players feeling somewhat guilty about killing someone, at least virtually.

    Modder Joseph Delgado has posted a blogpost on his website showing a scene from the GTA V VR mod he is working on that might be too real for comfort.

    "I'm really not sure about this," Delgado says. "I feel horrible about making this. You actually feel guilty."

    He goes on to say that his mouth "dropped the first time [he] shot someone in [his] GTA V VR setup."

    Wow, this looks terrible. Good thing we have no other games in first person view where you kill people.
    I am sure this will never catch on.

    of course he is!
    This is no different than any other first person shooter.

    Hmm isn't the PS4/PC/XBone version already with a first person view as an option?
    Or is it just for driving?

    Oh no, you misunderstand. What this guy was doing was making a -VR- option, one where you put on a headset and it immerses you in the game as if you were there.

    I haven't tried VR, but from what those who have tried it have said it looks like it adds another level of realism to games. Maybe you do not believe this, that is totally fine.

    I didn't say anything like that. You are over thinking.

    This is nothing more than a first person mod with vr support.... considering the countless first person shooters and shit out there.... look at skyrim.... gutting people with daggers in much the same way. The only difference is that with hand tracking and vr.... it would be more "interactive" then the point and click or rather controller direction and mashing the button.

    I think the modder is hugely over-reacting... if it's even real.
