Is Virtual Reality The Next Big Thing?

CheatCC says: "Does anyone else think it's weird that the Internet has recently become crammed with conversions about Virtual Reality gaming? I mean, technology has obviously come a long way since the Virtual Boy was released in 1995, but there's something terribly familiar about the current generation of VR products, so I'm still a little surprised by all of the enthusiasm."

I think Virtual Reality is the holy grail of gaming. Whether or not it is the next big thing remains to be seen, not because of whether or not the idea is good, but because of how well the tech is implemented.

VR is the only way I can think of that increases immersion to the kind of level we gamers always imagine the future to behold.

I remember this question when it was asked in the early 1990's, granted the tech wasn't where it's at now, but I don't think the majority of people want goggles or glasses as an all the time thing.

I wouldn't mind trying it now and again, but I don't want to be encumbered every time I game.

No. Actual new games and not a shooter-fest. Is the next big thing. It's called gaming.
