There is something very Orwellian about the whole thing....>>6495
I find no point in the whole thing. VR at this point is little more than strapping a small LCD monitor onto your face, and yet there are many new games coming out that REQUIRE it for some reason. There is nothing about it that a normal first person shooter hasn't done since Quake.
The argument has been the same ever since the first video games really. Some people simply lack the ability (or just too lazy) to trigger their imagination without external stimuli.
Honestly I hope this is just another fad like it was back in the 80's and dies off like 3DTV. I still think there is a place for augmented reality however, but this is not the way to go about it. Unfortunately to do it right, brain augmentation would have to be a thing and we are still a long ways off for that.
