I canceled my G2 preorder and bought a Quest 2. Let me tell you I am absolutely blown away by this thing. And yes, this will read as hyperbole because I've never really experienced VR before, so as I type this I'm still riding that first time VR high. I just tried the Beat Saber demo and I'm so overwhelmed with joy that I have tears in my eyes. This is like experiencing video games for the first time again. Can't wait to try HL: Alyx.
Honestly I went in expecting this thing to be garbage because it's dirt cheap. But I am pleasantly surprised. No screen door effect. There is blurriness outside of the sweet spot, but I suspect that this is normal for VR. Once you're immersed in a game that blurriness fades away.
I love reading peoples first reaction to VR. Your reaction pretty much mirrors mine when I tried the Rift Civ 1 back in 2016. Thought I had wasted my money because I hated 3D and the videos on Youtube didn't look great. But when I put on the headset. wow!! I was blown away and it's exactly like you said. It was like experiencing games for the first time.
If you liked Beat Saber, you should consider buying Pistol Whip as well.
