Gaming really feels like it's about to have a second wind with next-gen consoles, portable solutions from Razer, NVIDIA and countless others, Oculus' Rift VR headset and more. The Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2013 is set to have Valve take the stage where one of their talks will be based on porting Team Fortress 2 to virtual reality goggles - in other words, most gamers' wet dreams.




The TF2 talk will be called "What We Learned Porting Team Fortress 2 to Virtual Reality", and will be lead by Valve programmer Joe Ludwig. The second talk will have Valve's R&D guy Michael Abrash discuss "Why Virtual Reality is Hard (And Where it Might be Going)". Abrash will focus his talk on head-mounted displays.


GDC 2013 is being held at San Francisco's Moscone Center from March 25-29.
