How Can I Get The "Wow" Factor Back In VR?

Hey guys! As the titles suggests, I'm experiencing really bad VR "Fatigue". I've been playing VR for about 3 months give or take, I had a Samsung Odyssey+ for a month, and now I'm on the Rift CV1 with 3 sensors with a decent setup. Ceiling mounted pulley system, wall mounted sensors, and a big open play space.
   My issues is for the past month or so, whenever I put on my headset, I'm not "Wowed" anymore, and It's quite upsetting, and could use some advice or tips to get some wow factor back into my VR Experience. 
   I love shooter games on VR, but on normal PC gaming, I love single player story games. some of my top games of all time in general are The Last of Us, HL2, Portal 2, Battlefront 2 (2005 and 2017), etc. On VR I've played The Lab, Beat Saber (Which I'm pretty good at), Pavlov (TTT Is my favorite to play) and Onward. I don't have a huge section of VR games, mainly because I don't wanna pay $30+ for a 1 hour long tech demo, or a game which I'll never touch again, however I am excited for Boneworks.
   So back to my original issue. What do you guys recommend I do / play to get the fun and wow factor back into VR? Thanks!

I actually do own it. It runs and looks like garbage despite all the fixes online.

Odd I thought it ran pretty good for me, sorry.

Just leave it alone for a while, play some good flat screen stuff until you get the urge to come back to VR. Or go outside and do RR (Real Reality) like paintball, start a vegetable patch.

Yeah +1, runs smooth and crisp for me too. Maybe you need more horsepower ...

Stormland looks awesome, too bad my VR Rig isn't up to spec. My VR rig is a mini-itx system, 6600k overclocked and a RX570 overclocked. My main rig on the otherhand is a Vega 64 and a Ryzen 7 3700x all on a custom waterloop, but I wanna keep the two rigs separate.

Best wow factor for me was upgrading to a good desktop pc (i9 9900k, gtx1080ti, 32gb 3000 ram, 1tb ssd, 4tb hdd).  Being able to run games at high settings and using OTT to crank up SS to 2.0 makes everything in VR so much better.

Yep, agree with this. Had a similar experience where I enjoyed the CV1 for the better part of a year with an o/c'd 1050ti. Performance was acceptable and because I had nothing to compare it to, was seemingly adequate for most titles. I wouldn't say VR had lost it's wow factor but then I purchased an rtx2080 and with SS 1.8 to 2.0 was really wow'ed and remember the smoothness of everything as being most impressive. I remember wishing I'd gone 2080 a full year before, had I'd known the upgrade would be so noticeable or make the experience noticeably improved.
