I chose "No".
While virtual reality has its uses and is fun it is still fake regardless of what desires are made manifest.
I think many of us would like to be in a world, even if it was for a short time, where our dreams were made to seem real and it may offer a sort of comfort but in the end virtual reality is still a lie...a pleasant one but a lie nonetheless.
I don't much care for our world as it is but at least it is real.
One of the most significant problems with some forms of too much early-age "virtual reality" is a disconnection with the "real world"
This does not necessarily apply to adult professionals who use it in medical research, space sciences, etc... but it can happen.
Hello Reality and all that is True

It would be entertaining but not being real would be disillusioning over time and probably lead to melancholy.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Virtual reality would be fun, but I like the unpredictability of the real world.
Virtual Reality can just as unpredictable when based on the real world. But certain variables can be adjusted that the unpredictable things aren't extremely unpleasant, or if they are the response can be smoothly adjusted to make it easier.
