VR player smashes face into a wall, needs stitches (video)

A man playing a horror game on the HTC Vive was so immersed that he ran and smashed his face into a wall, requiring stitches.  Here's the video.
If you haven't used a VR headset (a real one -- Cardboard doesn't count), it's hard to understand how real it can feel, as evidenced by many popular VR reaction videos on YouTube.  Here's a video that shows just how intense the experience can be.

A man was playing Brookhaven Experiment, a horror shooter (available on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift).  At one point, he ran out of ammo just as a mutated creature lunged at him.  Gripped with terror, he instinctively turned around and ran, smashing his face into a wall, and punching holes in the drywall with his face and his knee.

Here's the video:

The man required stitches but was otherwise fine.  The HTC Vive headset survived as well.
