Do you know VR? Maybe you know.
It's very popular and appealing topic over the world.
To tell you the conclusion first, I think VR is alright.

First, VR is good for education.
If VR became universalization, the school can use it in the class.
Students can use VR in many ways.
They can see the vivid ecosystem in the classroom.
They can also meet ancient people and experience ancient living. Isn't it wonderful?
VR, it will be an important explement in education.

Second, VR is a very good treatment in the medical field.
A patient who can't move can go outside and do an activity work with VR.
The patient can enjoy an activity work with VR and it will improve their condition.
Also, it is good for Rehabilitation treatment for ex-sports players.

Now, I agree with what you said about students being able to use it as education and it being used as kind of like a "fantasy world" for people who can't really walk or go outside and witness the world first hand, but I believe VR is stupid really.

In the future, people will just use virtual reality for everything, and not even worry about their real lives, the whole world will just BE virtual reality, nobody will go out anybody because you can do all these cool things with future technology, and all that bullsh*t.

I an see VR being useful in other fields, but not in video gaming. Nobody wants to play 5 minute demos when you can have a 200+ hour games on $500 consoles instead of thousands of dollars for a 5 minute gimmick

FanboyMctroll, that's a bit of an unfair comparison. 3D TV's were indeed a gimmick but their practical use beyond the standard virtual entertainment already provided by regular TV screens were limited. VR systems on the other hand are beginning to be accepted or considered for use in various fields such as medicine, where research is being done to help disabled people better navigate themselves throughout the world, Cognitive/Behavioural therapies, more convenient business communications, etc. Also the minimum costs to setup VR systems isn't even close to $8000, people are currently advertising their VR custom PC builds costing less than $1000.

VR will be in bargain bins like 3D TV's were last year. VR is just the latest marketing gimmick, you need $8000 in computer hardware to run it, the games are just overrated demos and nobody is going to stand around waving their arms for 5 hours, therefore we will stick with our regular gaming on the couch and VR will disappear like the 3D TV's did
