AMD Corporate Vice President Roy Taylor has actually drawn lines between Fallout 4‘s upcoming VR mode and Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. Fallout 4 VR, if you read between the lines there, will be so unique and boundary pushing that it’s worth comparing to two games that made home consoles a solid fixture in our lives.
