There are a lot of folks out there wanting VR to start out as mature as console and PC gaming.
The number one complaint you'll see about gaming on Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive right now is a lack of popular ? commonly referred to as AAA ? games. As gamers, we're used to a major hardware launch including a list of games that were made in coordination with the manufacturer. Games that, at least in part, show off what the system you're playing on is capable of. Perhaps more important than how functional the games are, some those launch titles in the last few generations have been staples in the console ecosystem.

While these expectations aren't unreasonable from the perspective of someone who has grown up on consoles, it's a thought that misses the larger picture when it comes to VR gaming. It also unnecessarily puts the smaller VR experiences that already exist in an box they don't belong in.
