Lots of words will be typed about how it compares to the real thing. Here, let me save it for you, it doesn’t. Real life is analog, far sharper, far more interesting, and far more fun than anything you can experience in VR. Even for decades to come.

VR is more accessible than real life and, soon, the numbers of attendees will dwarf those who can attend in real life (somewhere around 70,000 attended last year). It is more interactive (and you can navigate it much faster). It is more comfortable for sure. Are these tradeoffs worth not going?
