I've had the Quest 2 for about 2 weeks now and it's great. The first couple of days I had a weird experience and after reading online, a couple of other people have had it too. I'm just posting this to see if anyone else can relate. I played for around 8 hours a day for the first 3 days. I previously had a HTC Vive in 2016, however since it had been so long that could be why I had these effects.
So the first day after getting the Quest 2, I didn't have any motion sickness which was great. However going to sleep that night, my brain must have still been pretty active, in some half awake half asleep state. It's kinda foggy but I remember waking up moving my arms around thinking I was in virtual reality. I remember trying to take my headset off, being so confused that I wasn't actually wearing one and I was in real life, then looking and seeing the head set packed away on the floor next to me, this happend several times throughout the night.
The next morning I remember my arms just felt super floaty, completely weightless like I was moving them in something like vr chat. It's hard to describe, I knew it was real life but it felt as tho I had no collision.
I had some other effects that day too. When looking at certain objects like my computer monitor, phone and mirror, it had a strange screen door effect similar to the headset. They also had a strange rainbow haze making it hard to read. I also had poor balance and time perception, similar to when in the headset.
The following day I had a more strange effect, I guess you would call it (disassociation?) similar to this post on reddit , I felt almost like a passenger in my body. I lost that day entirely; I didn't have a real concept of time or mortality, I was just there.
Again, I feel fine now. Balance, sight, perception of time are all back. No weird dreams or (disassociation?) etc. It was pretty much just the first 2 or 3 days. Did anyone else have an experience like this?
This is another post on the Oculus forum , its more about feeling like your in VR when you're not, not so much about disassociation tho.
