HDR os the most overhype shit on gaming, its 3D ir ver but way worse
Must be something wrong with your eyeballs, :D. Nah, seriously though, I get where you are coming from, it took me ages to see it's value, like at least a month of using it. It's like when people said they see no difference in 480p ans 1080p back in the day or how people say 30fps is no different than 60fps. I believe HDR when used right is an even bigger jump for games than 1080p to 4k. When you see it down correctly and your TV has proper HDR and your contrast settings or HDMI cable aren't hindering it, it changes a games lighting entirely, Sony Santa Monica, Polyphony and Guerilla Games all show how HdR can be implemented to make a generation looking difference. I don't think many other devs are taking full advantage of it. Hopefully it'll be standard on the PS5 as it's hard to go back to shitty narrow light and colour where everything is washed out, 8 bit colour is a bottle neck at the moment for graphics as lighting can only flesh out so much detail.
