This is the bonkers moment a gamer freaked out playing a virtual reality console ending up in the foetal position on the floor.

While at a friend’s house, Peter Gaytan took on the game Lightblade VR on Steam for the HTC Vive for the first time.

As the gameplay begins and the console moves, Peter quickly becomes overwhelmed by the action and lets out a high-pitched scream.

Within seconds, the gamer is curled up on the floor in a ball leaving his friends in fits of laughter.

Peter, from Surprise, Arizona, said: “It was initially pretty embarrassing.

“My friends will probably never let this one go, and for good reason.

“It takes a real man to scream like a banshee and collapse into the foetal position when in distress.

“Honestly, I’m not too sure why it happened.

“For someone who has never touched VR, I was really taken aback with just how immersive the games felt.

“I guess you could call it a defence mechanism for someone who never quite became a Jedi.”
