If you're not into games as art (for art's sake), just walk away.. You won't consider the movement worth putting up with, you'll be frustrated by the lack of voice acting and dialogue, and when the story ends, you'll just think "what the hell?" rather than considering the meaning yourself, or wanting to hear other peoples' opinions, and what THEY took from the story.
Virginia is a non-dialogued, musically scored work of art. While the optimization is poor, which equates to pretty janky camera movement, you'd do well to keep in mind that this is an old game. I was able to have the motion set in a way that caused minimal discomfort (I can tolerate VR fine), but I appreciate that other people may not.
Personally I thought that the mystery was worth putting up with the movement for. As the story moved along, I found myself drawn deeper into it, to the point that motion was barely a thing.
In this game, I would say that story is more important than gameplay, and that the gameplay is secondary to it, as the interactivity is minimal and limited to walking around and picking up things for achievements. If you don't see how that could be a good thing, I'd guess you'd never played Valiant Hearts.
But if you're happy to experience games passively and have them put you in the game's movie as the main character, experiencing things in the title role, while you think about what things mean, and experience the sights and sounds, I think you would enjoy this game. The memories stayed with me long after.
For me, the score alone was worth the sale price. it's absolutely beautiful.

Twin Peaks meets X-Files. Soundtrack is pretty good too.
