Have you used a VR platform @leo?
We have a Vive at work with all of the better games. I haven't played many because I've been busy, but have watched various people at the company play. Everyone loves it and is super stoked at VR now. Some were even skeptical about VR, then they played it and are now sold.
I think you're hoping for VR to fail so you don't have to worry about it.
I have no idea how long for VR to become "mainstream" (whatever that means), but it isn't going away and will only continue to get better.
