And if you're skeptical about VR but nonetheless decided to see what all the fuss is about, the Go will make you glad you didn't splurge on more capable kit.
Or put you off without having the chance to experience what a more comprehensive VR (6DoF tracking for headset and multiple controllers AKA roomscale) is like.
The Go is like an up-market Cardboard experience - as noted in the article, it only has directional tracking, so it doesn't match up to the experience that VR can provide.
If you are considering VR, you owe it to yourself to skip going out and buying one of these, and instead go and try a proper VR setup - if you know a friend with one, try that, otherwise some stores will demo the kit, or there are VR arcades popping up for example.
Give them a try, for considerably less cost, and see what you think of that before going further.
you can choose to, or not depending on what you think of it, I won't try to force anyone's opinion.
It's like buying a car (for enjoyment) - you could buy a Ferrari, but it's expensive, so you decide to buy a second hand Fiesta from the 90s instead to see if driving is fun.
You end up with a car, but you don't get the experience of the more expensive item, so you can't make a fully considered opinion on cars in general.
If you were to go to a track day on the other hand, you could experience it without having to shell out the full price for one, and then decide what you want to do.
