Aside: VR will eventually matter in esports, but not this year.

Today’s podcast episode is an attempt to explain why I think that esports and VR wont mix until 2017 at the earliest. Even then, considering the games that could be called major esports right now, it’ll be difficult to create meaningful VR gameplay interactions without resorting to segregating VR games from non-VR games, at least on a competitive level.

And shoutout to critical thinking skills that a growing number of fans apparently lack: the Drone Racing League is not an esport simply because it features VR headsets and you should feel bad if you think it is.
