Is VR like playing a video game?
Yes and no. On one hand, like video games, VR finds stronger appeal in people who engage their imagination to the furthest extent possible during sessions. Using your imagination can help foster a sense of immersion. VR has been shown to workwell with children for just this reason. On the other hand, though, VR is different form video gams in that its unique technological capacity helps enhance the sense of presence. In other words, when you use this technology, your ability to distinguish between the virtual word and reality could become negligible. (Jose Gutiérrez Maldonado, 2022.)
