I thought VR was a cool idea, and you could go to a VR-booth that had a full simulation suite.
The suite would include VR-goggles plus an acceleration harness with force feedback for your arms and legs as well as wind, smell and temperature simulation.
You could rent a simulation-suite by the hour to do impossible stuff like low gravity cliff diving on the moon.
Then the vision got smaller, you would only get a walking simulator (a big smooth pan plus a pair of shuffle shoes) with a retention-arm that held you in place and two simple motion controllers for your hands. And it would be like an expensive gaming set up. This was still interesting, because you could use the gaming-VR-goggles as a poor-mans giant multi-monitor.
Then the Zuck bought one of the most promising open-source vr tech companies, made it closed source, and then the vision got even smaller and much creepier.
Now it's supposed to become a surveillance capitalism reality-overlay with meta-friends and maximum obnoxiousness advertisement, and for good measure a virtual-real-estate scam.
I think if we want to have 3d stuff, we just have to go back to parallax occlusion displays, those were easier to implement technologically and didn't need any glasses.
The effect was less dramatic than VR but still nice.
