1. Please read the OP. This theard is not made to make new arguments between VR haters and VR lovers. It doesnt make any sense to do those arguments, we will never find any agreement.
2. There was never such a tech piece as mindblowing as VR, thats the simple reason. There were cool stuff before, stuff some people liked, other disliked. Like the Wii, or the Kinect. But you cant compare VR with those stuff. End of discussion.
Haha, you must be young. The NES was mind blowing. You have no idea. So was the Atari 2600, for that matter. And don't get me or half of this forum started on the first time they played an N64 and ran around Peach's castle. In my opinion all of those were more revolutionary than VR. I'm not taking anything away from Virtual Reality, but let's not pretend that it invented high tech.
