It’s borderline at times I agree, but as a pilot of both full scale and rc planes (using model mounted video cameras and FPV goggles for the last ten years) I can say that for me at least, VR is as essential in a flight sim as FPV is for flying drones, model power planes and gliders.
I can no longer fly GA aircraft, rotor-wing or gliders in real life. But FPV models and VR in sims is as close as I can get, and I love it. Yes there are time when the resolution is borderline, but heck it was absolutely terrible in the early days of drones and FPV models and I still loved it…flying models by line of sight is “meh” by comparison for me.
The other day I set out for a cruise over the Lake Geneva coastline in the Junkers and switched from preset scattered clouds to live weather and found myself in a life or death world of rain squalls, high winds and thunderheads with whiteouts, rain and patches of clear air where I could just make out the shoreline. The desperate flight back to Geneva airport was so real and uncertain that I was really there in a 1930’s plane, sometimes leaning out into the slipstream to try and see where the heck I was, with only a small chance of finding the beacon on the control tower to guide me in; no radio beacon or VOR to follow. I just made it and it was the best flight I’ve ever had in a sim.
