Here Are Some Of Our Favorite Time Magazine VR Cover Spoofs

The cover of this week's Time magazine is all about VR and Oculus Rift, and unfortunately the results aren't great. Thankfully, the Internet has pushed up its sleeves and made the best of it.

If you haven't seen it yet, it features Oculus VR founder and inventor Palmer Luckey awkwardly leaping in the air on a fake beach with no shoes. You can find it here. Unsurprisingly, the Internet embraced the opportunity of the strange photo created magic.

Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell's next game, Volume, quickly used the image for some of its own marketing to great effect.

Square Enix did the same with the recently dated Lara Croft Go. This is meant to be a joke, but I will be disappointed if they don't eventually deliver.

NeoGAF also a fantastic running thread of creations which you can check out here. This is just a small sampling of some of the best.
