No other game I'd played before came even remotely as close in feeling authentic with a lightsaber.

TL;DR - If you get a chance to play with a Vive again, try out Job Simulator & War Thunder.
Sounds cool, but again, I won't be playing on that again for at least a little while (all I was supposed to do was drop off his mail, but ended up chilling there for 2 hours lol)

Holy shit War Thuder looks amazing, although nearly impossible to actually hit anything

The most fun I had with War Thunder was going "Let's try spinning. That's a good trick!"

I remember doing one of those at my Co-op. Worked from about 7:30AM to after Midnight. Didn't have to come in the next day, though - because they didn't want to pay me 8 hours of OT.

Longest shift I've worked was 15 hours. Did it a handful of times. Never fun

Especially when you're on your feet for nearly all of it, like I imagine you were.

We were doing laser camera measurements of an engine that was running tests. It was really ****ing cool, to be honest, but we could all sit while we'd run the tests. Was a lot of getting up to check it, standing around, then sitting back down. I can't imagine working 15 hours at the ice cream store I worked at during high school - if it was a busy night, you didn't sit at all, except to eat dinner (in shifts).
