Nice article. I have been interested in VR for a while but I can’t afford to upgrade my PC in order to run with a Rift or Vive. It was good to get some perspective on the subject. I am a big gamer and I remember before my college days when I had the time to play games for hours and hours and the reality of walking or driving around after binge gaming sessions would be interfered with by those sessions.
For example I would be walking around and I would be on the look out for “flowers” or other crafting items I would have been searching for in a game during the previous hours, only to realize that I do not need to search for them in real life.
It will be interesting to see what happens when VR becomes more affordable and what kind of weird reactions people will have to it. Thanks for the write-up.
