Not only are the specs needed to play the Half-Life: Alyx a little more strict than most VR games (minimum of quad core i5) but you need to buy a VR headset also (cheapest is $200).  This makes it an expensive game for Half-Life fans. Why couldn’t we just get a standard Half-Life installment, it’s been 13 years!
