I think this the one. In the early 1990s, I experience a VR game in NYC. Allen C Huffman wrote of his experience in 1993 and it mirrors my own experience very well. Dactyl Nightmare. You fight another player jumping around these weird chess boards and you have various weapons – and I remember feeling the hits with some kind of vibrating belt.
Someone recreated it for the Oculus Rift a few years ago too.
