VR actually makes the gaming experience measurably better. Kinect was never able to find a game that was made better by waggling your arms around like an idiot.

Although ironically I wonder if a Kinect 3.0 would have been able to make VR better by removing the need for move controller type devices.

Agree. Anyone who helped develop any games for that atrocity should be ashamed of themselves.
