UPDATE
Winners Announcement: http://rog.asus.com/articles/events/rog-forum-battleground---battle-4-winners-announced/

The winners announcement for Battle of the VR Memes will be posted up on ROG website on Jan 15th

Since this last battle was heavily affected due to the Holidays, we'll be extending the deadline to January 5th until 11:59pm (GMT/UTC +8 - Taiwan time)

Merry Christmas and happy Holidays from everyone here at ASUS ROG!

Finally we bring you the last battle! We wanted to finish off this campaign with a really interesting topic, and nothing would be more fitting than the very hot topic of VR. There’s no better way to show your thoughts about VR than through a meme. Let the meme battles begin!

I came up with my own little VR meme, hope you like it! - It appears some part of the meme is cut off since I can't resize with vBulletin

Here's my entry for now:
http://i63.tinypic.com/343rh51.jpg

I got this idea when I saw how cheap VR boxes are for phones, then I figured that VR headsets must be cheap as well. And then I saw the prices and I realized that I might just end up with a poor man's VR headset.

Thanks for posting this but for it to qualify as a valid entry you must have text inside the picture, text in the comment doesn't won't and doesn't make it a valid meme. Right I see a normal GIF and obviously no editing was put into this.

Every Bro can relate I'm sure :D hence the creation of this meme... and VR takes it to the next level as if you're literally there, therefore the absolutely SWOLE arm from "constant repetition" of watching a bit too much VR... Hahaha. Merry Christmas, Guys! :)

When we think of VR youtubers we all think of Pewdiepie and Pewdiepie's VR videos are all meme worthy so I decided to pick Pewdiepie for the meme, we also know that Pewdipie's VR videos can get quite sexual and what's the most sexual meme around here? of course it's the "5 minutes into _____ and chill and he gives you this look" so this is the idea behind my meme.

Lol! In the late 90's I had a ASUS AGP-V6600 Deluxe with ASUS VR-100 LCD 3D glasses. The best it did was to give you double vision, for life.

That feels when you don't have a budget for a VR-capable PC and HMD.
I just made the Google cardboard from my keyboard's box long time ago (when Google released their printable layout).
A high-end 2014 phone is good enough to give a peek of VR, but not as immersive as PC's.
And yes, that's a mosquito swatter.

First half of the picture is from http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1197670&page=3
Second half was taken by myself. That's me on the pic :)

I got this idea from my experience. I don't have a VR but my friend have one. So he ask me to try it and that is my reaction literally when i tried VR for the first time. Teehee!

Because I play a lot of Overwatch, Roadhog came to my mind after being thinking in huge men (lol) sitting in front of a PC. After that I went to search for the soplay image that I already saw some days ago, I first searched "sexy roadhog" but believe, I didn't get the results I wanted. It was till I searched "Roadhog girl cosplay" that found it. Later on, after looking at the stock image I knew where to put the VR headset, it was clean, like Roadhog was just putting down the VR after a long gaming session. The, to add a little of roadhog style, I searched for the pig he has in his stomach and made it look like a sticker on it. After all that I tried to match the background of both images and the meme was done. Roadhog is a sexy female version of himself when he plays VR! Hope you like it people!

Here is my VR Meme. The idea behind this meme I made is that my classmates and friends always had better social lives/everyday adventures/activities, and here I am, alone in my room, playing video games. So I decided to incorporate those in my meme entry about having a job, and here it is. Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives. I hope this will not be my fate. LOL.
Thanks!

It wont be long, the ads will be as intrusive as they are when we are browsing or playing that kind of games that are free and always prompts to go to a website.
Next is the VR adBlock, now we will be adding plugins or filters to block them, and now and then its functionality will be broken and will be another pain in the ass.
Then, marketing about this and that, buy this virtual apartment that has better light and its less cold at winter, go to that burger house because the burger is juicer, or go to that mansion because the bunnies are sexier :wink:.
Later we will enter the micro-transaction ERA, where we will do some kind of virtual social service for someone, to be paid with virtual money, to buy a virtual weapon or something, or if you like spending pay some hot cash for the ultra-super-duper-hyper-electric-molten-frozen cape so that you will be virtually cooler in your VIRTUAL REALITY.
Now its GABE's time to rub his 3D FACE between your eyes with the 99.92% steam sales of this game and that game, where he will collect your money like he is the freaking tax office and you will end up with a **** ton of VR(-now versions) games, that you will never play because you don't have enough real life hours and cant buy virtual hours (at least for now, maybe it will be the expansion of VR or something).
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now for us the indigent proletarians of hardcore PC gaming that use our overclocked computers for heating at winter will end up playing in a custom-made VR made out of card-box the open-source alternatives because we "support" the open-source community and not because we cannot afford ****.
Good Luck to all :cool:

I always dream to have a gaming laptop, probably would get one when I have enough savings. That's where the idea came up on me :D

are comic strips meme allowed? :confused:
Yes it is allowed as long as it's your own idea! Thanks for participating, awesome entry.

You all have some really awesome ideas, keep it up, still few days left before the end of Battle #4!

I wasn't sure if multiple entries are allowed and I apologise if they are not, but I got this idea over the Christmas season. Gifts we expected compared to what we actually got. Expecting high end VR hardware but receiving hardware that we ought to use our phones with... that kind of VR compared to the actually thing pretty much sucks. hahaha Happy New Year Guys, all the best for 2017! also... I'm sure a lot of people received socks :D not a bad gift though :P

I chose to do this meme because it serves as a double meaning. On one hand, it shows the flaws of VR; it isn't perfect. On the other hand, it demonstrates that VR has room to improve, that its potential still hasn't been reached.

The idea behind this is that everything looks so cool and you feel awesome when you are playing a game in VR, but what's happening in real life is you look kind of silly and you're bumping into things and potentially tripping over your furniture when you get too carried away into your VR experience. So just thought it would be a funny sort of irony to exaggerate with VR being represented by one of the coolest scenes in movie history with the person playing VR feeling like he/she is as cool as Neo in the Matrix, and then contrasting that with the bumbling and clumsy Chevy Chase character in the classic SNL show representing what the player actually looks like in real life.

Sources: I did a Google search for images and these were the among the first results for my searches. The images came from the following two websites.
Matrix Pic: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2222541/Lana-Wachowski-Transgender-Matrix-director-childhood-torment.html
Chevy Chase in SNL pic: http://www.third-beat.com/2013/11/19/illustrated-history-snl-castmembers-injuring-podiums-playing-politicians-named-ford/

I didn't look at anyone else's Meme's before posting this so apologies if somebody already posted something like this.

As seen in different demos and pictures VR users always have their mouths open :-) so the MEME/JOKE here is that they all have crystal white teeth and obviously need to smell good. I brought in the infamous phrase seen on shopping sites like amazon, ebay and others where after you browse an item and you scroll down it would say "Customers who bought this item also bought ... " and it would display related items customers bought together as a bundle :D

I've went through all the pages of this contest and didn't see anything similar.

Picture Source: oculus.com/Rift or just google "mouth open vr headset" haha.

Good luck all.

Here are two. Both convey the advanced VR (and graphics) of PC gamers (even PS4 gamers to a certain extent) and the longing feeling Xbox users have to jump in to the same experiences. Basically, Xbox users be jealous.

And of course, people getting a taste of the Rift or Vive, such as MS Stores..
