Look Through The Eyes Of A Pokémon Trainer With Oculus Rift (VIDEO)

Tired of working with thousands of others to become a Pokemon Master on Twitch Plays Pokémon? Well, Oculus Rift wants to take the reins.

A beta version of "Pokemon Gold/Silver" for Oculus Rift has emerged, thanks to virtual reality stereoscopic 3D-driver manufacturer vorpX.

Don't let the scary company description intimidate you; vorpX is basically responsible for taking games like "Skyrim," "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" and "Bioshock: Infinite" (along with a few more) and making them work for the virtual reality gaming platform Oculus Rift.

As you can see in the beta version of "Pokémon Gold/Silver" for Oculus Rift (watch above), it's not a perfect system. The game isn't designed to be 3D, and it shows. But that wouldn't stop us from having hours of first-person Pokémon fun if we could get our hands on an Oculus Rift. (It's not currently available to the public.)

As Kotaku points out, though, this beta version of Pokémon does prove that "if you can play it, someone will try to play it on the Oculus Rift."
