Comparing my vision for a future Nintendo console to the reality of the Switch and how it could still deliver the family friendly form of virtual reality I described two years ago. Also, some notes on the merits of having an unintrusive UI in Portal VR.

This doesn 't prove anything. A placebo effect should be deemed a benefit and a correctly conducted test would have been to tell the test subjects that the game was controlled by an adaptive AI that would change the map to ensure that it did not become too difficult, but ...

I 'll give her sole credit for creating my Game of the Year if it will help rebalance things.
