Oculus Rift Engineer Killed

A great man in the world of video games was killed today in a hit and run incident from a fugitive on the run from police in Santa Ana. Andrew Scott Reisse was an engineer on the Oculus Rift project, which allows gamers to play amazing games through a visor for those who don’t know. A twenty one year old fugitive was barreling down the street in California and struck Andrew, and the Challenger that was carrying suspects fleeing Santa Ana police didn’t even stop to make sure he survived. I understand that they were running from the police but to plow through an innocent pedestrian and you just keep going, we can all only hope that they get charged with vehicular manslaughter on their list of charges.

The members were gang members on probation and the driver who ended this great man’s life was Victor Sanchez. For those that are not familiar with Andrew Scott Reisse’s work, he has written code in so many games that even listing a few would be an insult to his memory but for the most part, if you’ve played it, he has taken part in it and this engineer will be remembered not only as a loving father and husband, but as a revolutionary in that he helped mold what will be the future of gaming. It’s impossible to put a label on someone once they have passed from this world, however, as a lover of video games and a gamer myself, I feel comfortable saying that one of the loved members of the gaming community will be missed.

The Oculus Rift will continue to be shaped and molded in to the future of gaming and something to remember is that a man that helped construct this amazing device, left before his time. I don’t think it’s fair for anyone to be judges so harshly, but I don’t think I’m alone in saying that these gang members get exactly what’s coming to them and we will all remember Andrew Scott Reisse as a hero in the gaming community.
