Is Virtual Reality Just a Fad?

Virtual Reality is a lot of fun, but many critics believe that the lack of games and hefty price tag of high end systems like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are going to relegate VR to the growing collection of technological fads that have come and gone. So - is Virtual Reality destined to become the next standard in gaming, or is it just another fad?
