Its amazing how fast time flies while making memories and friends along the way. People come, people go, though the impact we leave amongst ourselves is interesting to note. Another year has gone by where I can once again celebrate my time in VRchat, even if I may or may not be viewed in a positive or negative light. Maybe neutral? Whatever light it is, I genuinely admire playing VRchat. Even if people may or may not think ill of me, my main focus is simply “having fun”. If anybody considers me evil or vile in any way then that is their loss. I simply want to have fun, thus that is what I have been having in VRchat. Its awesome.
Weird intro aside, I’ve joined VRchat back in November 17th, 2017 with special thanks to Nagzz21’s influence. I’ve seen the clip of his Neptune doll spreading so I downloaded VRchat loving it from the get-go. I’ve made friends, I’ve lost friends, and people simply in the middle.
The following images was from our impromptu meet-up not expecting much. Just a quick 1 picture hangout which ended up becoming something all that much more. It would have dragged on for far too long, though my current situation wouldn’t really allow it to be dragged on till 5 am in the morning as we had previously when we first met up. Maybe it would have, it would have been weird however explaining my situation. Awkwardness.

(Second Half of Article contains our first meetups)
Again, I wasn’t expecting to take so many pictures from this anniversary of when I first started playing VRchat. I only expected one image though friends jumped on within 20 minutes, and BAM! It rolled out of my control, in a good way. Shame a few people missed this group shot, it is what it is.
We missed our October 20th anniversary, though guess this makes up for that with how brutal 2020 is as a year.
I chose the world ‘Town of Beginnings’ because that is where we technically started our adventure. This is where everything “began” for everybody in VRchat, for Nagzz21, and elsewhere. Technically it can be the hub, or the grassfield, though this works the best because VRchat was inspired by Sword Art Online (and viewed as such) in various ways. VR technology is what Sword Art Online hyped people about with the whole ‘Nervegear’ and etc. Its a similar case with the anime – [Bofuri] – where the girls also use VR gear to get into a world similar to SAO and Final Fantasy.
An RPG Maker game was based here, as well as various memories. My biggest one is when my avatar maker game as the Game Master (Phantom) from SAO when I used my Oculus Rift for the first time. A lot of nostalgic memories were spawned here.
Thanks to Hunt’s friend we were shown a new world called ‘Sword Udon’ which is a dungeon crawler. Its basic, though its fun, something you can only do in VR. Now, if this was a full fledged game I’d play it. I’m sure there are some, though genuine ones would be great sticking to the basics and fun of things.
Delta, Hawk, and Kitsy had to leave just leaving Hunt and myself to world hop a few worlds before snoozing. This is where the second half of where the VRC magic happened bringing out the best of VRC.
Because I love how you can take pictures in VRChat, and how people know me in taking numerous images, I took 50,000 images of Hunt’s avatar trying to get the cutest side out of him. His avatar is so photogenic it simply catches my eye.
For clarity: The whole ‘Seekers of the Lamp’ is simply a joke name. We really don’t have a name, its just a joke though using it because its just easy to label us as.
What should have been a 10 minute session could have carried us into the 6 am mark of fun. Love VRC when it does that! Such a fun and a blast. If I knew it would be like this I would have invited others. Everything is so much more fun in VR, with more people and etc. The ‘Captain Obvious’ stuff, heh. Let us see if I can survive into 2021 for VR, VRC, or anything in general. 2020 has been a nasty year. Let us keep that journey going, though sad to see Nagzz21 part ways with VRchat in various ways. Various people treating VRC like a job being weird by handing in their resignation being highly awkward with it & etc. Like anime, people come and go with the season; The season having ended for Nagzz21. Can’t stick to the past forever. I’m simply paying my respects wishing people would simply have fun in VRC, as I had last night. Great times in VRC 🙂
Its great when you leave a lasting impact on VRC, or simply remembered for something. Leaving varying levels of memories is what I love about VRC because we had fun, and that fun needs to be shared and remembered. Cherished.
Thanks for viewing, lets have fun for the final bit of 2020 & into 2021! Let us keep VR & VRchat awesome 🙂
