Is VR The future? I went to VRLA to find out (Gaming)

Seems like it could be possible to develope a system for FPS down the road, just might have to re-engineer how we control/play. I think it would be hard to say it's a total dead end, we just need someone to imagine an alternate path to the destination.

I am surprised that operating an FPS with a standard controller causes issues but I have no experience with VR. I wonder if the "look" control (right thumbstick) was tied to the position of a weapon we can hold. This seems like a natural solution and a happy medium. You could track the gun and even make the gun a controller by putting buttons on the grip and forearm if gestures were either too complicated or unwieldy. The biggest issue I see with this is simply holding a weapon for extended period of time. Just holding a single pound for 15 minutes would be exhausting, but I suppose you'd be able to recognize gamers easily.
