After seeing Lawnmowerman in the 90’s (even before) I have wanted a VR headset. I remember reading in a PC mag 20 years ago about a system that was commercially available at the time that could run… the original DOOM. This new product includes OOTB support for DOOM 3 BFG Edition:

DOOM 3 BFG Edition and Hawken are the only official Oculus-ready titles that have been announced as of November 1, 2012. We hope there are plenty of game developers who soon integrate Oculus technology into their upcoming titles and begin creating new games designed specifically for virtual reality!

also from the FAQ:

Libraries, headers, documentation, and samples for integrating the Oculus Rift with any game. We’ll also include out-of-the-box Unreal Engine and Unity integrations. The Oculus SDK will support PC (Windows) at launch.

From the Oculus FAQ

Dont care too much about Doom 3–when I was reading it for Games Art and Design, I really didnt enjoy it; Im nostalgic for the original but I found 3 “disconnected” and dated, still its a Gamne I own and have modded with. Unity intergration will be fun with the framework being used by many indy developers, but Unreal is where this product will likley shine being that the engine is the core of many games on the market.
