The Oculus Rift is an easy-to-use, virtual reality option with an exciting lineup of games, offering a diverse mix of gameplay experiences that make the case for VR being more than a mere fad. With the addition of its Oculus Touch controllers, the line between reality and video games has only grown blurrier, and more and more “traditional” developers — Insomniac Games, Slightly Mad Studios, Crytek, etc. — have shipped games for the platform.

We’ve compiled these problems below, and explained the best things you can do to solve them.
