It's not just VR to me, it's VR. It is by definition VR. It would be one thing if you had simply said that it's not what you envision when you think of VR, but you didn't just do that. You insisted that because it didn't fit your personal vision of VR that it wasn't VR at all. Even going as far as saying that the people and companies who are working on VR know that it isn't really VR and that they are knowingly lieing to us. "They are trying to sell a lie and they know it"
Whatever you want to call it. 20% VR, 40% VR, still isnt VR. Its exactly 20% or 40% VR. If that is good enough for you and you are good with calling it VR like its 100% VR, its your opinion.
You've used it?
I've read articles that certain gameplay elements had to be removed because they were too realistic. If that isn't giving the illusion of reality, then I don't know what would. We certainly need to add smell and taste, but like I said touch is there in some aspect.
Besides that, visual is what makes up most of the senses.
It most certainly is adding something that we haven't seen.
I'm going to take the word of what people who have actually used it and said, over yours.
I don't know what you mean Pi. Touch certainly isnt there. Unless you consider it the controller. But you aren't feeling anything but the buttons.
As for people overeacting, theres always someone. I imagine it will be even worse when it releases.
