Virtual Reality is changing the world and Nashville is in its path! A new VR Gamers Cafe called PLATFORMS has opened its doors in downtown Nashville on Second Avenue South near the popular bar and grill Third and Lindsley. We were invited to attend a VR Meetup on Thursday night hosted by The Wond'ry, an epicenter for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Vanderbilt University. We must say, we enjoyed learning all about this crazed way of gaming and near-reality experience! If you are too shaky to try those once in a lifetime bucket list experiences, then VR just might be your option. Here's why we say this is a place you must get to know!
Our VR Experience!
This isn't just an ordinary gaming arcade. It's a local family owned and operated Gamer's Cafe. Founder Luke Sykes and Co-Founder Aidan Jones set their focus to offer a high-quality gamer experience for amateurs like myself to the more experienced pro gamer. We love them because they are all about growing a local community where Nashville gamers and anyone in between can come to socialize, eat, and experience total immersion into an imaginary world! We went there determined to fight off Zombies in the world of Arizona Sunshine. Let's just say it was a little more real than we expected and walked right into a real-life experience of The Walking Dead! I literally forgot that I was in Nashville with a headset on playing a game. At that moment I was in the Arizona desert fighting for my life! You gotta try it!
