When and if you play a flat screen game, anyone out there do it only in vr?

I own oculus rift, go and Playstation vr. I love vr so much I thought I'd never play a flat screened game again. I only played flat screened games on Playstation. Even though vr takes 80% of my playtime I play god of war using as a screen my Playstation vr headset. 
To me the advantages are a huge screen and black surroundings add greatly to immersion. Much more so than without headset. Disadvantage is no HD hr or 4k visuals. I find the visuals still are very acceptable for me. Anyone else do this or am I one of the few.

    I play retro games with EmuVR or New retro arcade neon. With VR you can do crt emulation that just isnt possible with flat screen,

    Both of those "games" are basically emulating old school crt within "real" environeNt"

    God of war would be so awesome in vr. But the huge screen with the isolation and it just being black all around u instead of a living room makes it the 2nd best thing.

    No, I play non VR games on flat screen. They look much better on my 42" TV then they do in Big screen. Yes you get a bigger screen, but a lot more blur in VR.

    On my  playstation vr there is some pixilation but very little blur

    @inovator - Are there any God Rays in the PS VR headset? Wish I'd got it when it was £179.99

    There are no God rays on the Oculus Go either.  Moonlight and Go is amazing too.
