    I'm noticing that people on the forum refer mainly to games when talking about using their Gear VR. I also know gaming is what Oculus assumes people are going to use VR for (although ironically they published some stats last May saying that 80% of Gear VR usage in April was on video experiences).

    So I just thought I'd check with the community to see what type of content people spend more time consuming while using their Gear VRs.

    I prefer games to more passive "experiences," but only because there's there's more repeat value. Once I've viewed an experience, I tend to delete it, as I've already seen it.

    Games, however, are a little more immersive due to the interactivity, and they also have a better chance of bringing me back. Especially if it's a multi-player game against real opponents.

    I mostly play games on it, though I've been a gamer since the early 80s.
    I check out some of the experience and video apps, but don't spend as much time with those.
    I prefer more interaction, instead of passive experiences.

    I'm currently only using it for videos. Mostly 360 degree stuff. Maybe if i had a PlayStation 4VR i would play many games... wink wink nudge nudge VRheads

    I've had my Gear VR for roughly a week now, and I haven't tried any games yet. I'm still a little amazed at the video content. Jaunt has some really nice content.

    I actually feel like the VR videos (not only 360 videos but VR) are kind of a game, you are too immersed in the history (or being of it actually) that it's a game.
