I see the tongue out emoticon on the end of your post so I'll explain. I like it when people are civil, and emoticons hide a multitude of sins.
I read your statements with the emphasis on "Speaking for all us old fogies," which as an ale drinking Yorkshireman who grew out of all the young people crap many years ago I thought included me, so I did feel you made a blanket statement. I've been left behind by a lot of gaming culture. I've never played WoW, Minecraft, Eve, Bioshock, Crysis ... The list goes on.
Forgive my interpretation of your words, I did want to take it as a blanket statement because that means I can disagree with the whole, which helped me make my point in an easier way, to my mind.
This is an inexact medium for the transmission of ideas. I'm glad of your reply and the opportunity to rebut in a civil manner.
I've not had the chance to use VR, but I'm very much looking forward to it. "Immersive" is something I struggle with; whether it be games or films. I envy people who can step out of themselves and get giddy/emotional by looking at a screen.
+1 Internets for a Mythbusters name drop though, well played.
