Virtual reality has not become as popular as some predicted, but VR headsets have managed to amass an impressive collection of software in recent years independently. And given Sony’s recent PSVR2 announcements, this could be a great year for VR. If you’ve just purchased an Oculus Quest or haven’t turned yours on in a long time, you can have several great experiences. We highlight some of the best VR titles available for Oculus Quest, from high-octane music games to spooky shooters. Here are 10 virtual reality games that you should not ignore, in no particular order.
Honorable mentions: Half-Life: Alyx and Lone Echo
If you have a gaming PC ready for VR, you can connect it to a Quest via an Oculus Link cable or via WiFi using Air Link. Read also : Chip shortages affecting console supplies will last until 2022. Doing so unlocks several PC-based virtual reality games, most notably Half-Life: Alyx and Eco Solitaire. You definitely need some extra firepower to run these awesome games, but those experiences are well worth it.
Workouts are rarely fun, but Beat Saber is a total wonder and does a fantastic job of getting your blood pumping. This intense rhythm game puts two lightsabers in your hands and then assigns you the task of traversing a steady stream of oncoming blocks as you dodge the occasional obstacle, all to the beat of some cool tunes. It sounds simple, and it is, but we can’t deny its magic. Over the years, several updates have added music from artists like Panic! at the Disco, Green Day, BTS and Lady Gaga, so everyone should be able to find something to play while cutting and dicing. / Our review
I hope you die
Schell Games clearly loves old James Bond movies; Hope you Die is a love letter to every scene in a movie where a spy has been tied up and left to design an escape. He’s a special ops field agent who can’t take a break. At each level you end up in a precarious situation, like locked inside a car aboard a cargo plane or trapped in a space station in high Earth orbit. Fortunately, you have psychic powers and can manipulate objects from a distance. Still, can you solve these ingenious environmental puzzles and escape each trap in time? A sequel came out in August 2021 and is equally compelling. / Our Impressions
Work simulator: the 2050 archives
You may think your work is tedious, but what would robots of the future do? This cheeky simulation from Owlchemy Labs lets you explore a future museum dedicated to future-less work. Explore extravagant approximations of real occupations as a car mechanic, gourmet chef, and office worker. A robot gives you a number of simple tasks to complete, but these literal-minded machines don’t really understand our moderna life. You” burn CDs “by placing them in a toaster and typing on a keyboard with just two buttons, a” 1 “and a”0″. Job Simulator is full of good jokes and it’s easy to create your own fun in these quirky play spaces. / Our review
Quill is a tiny little mouse lost in a big world. Unfortunately, a fire-breathing snake named Sarffog threatens to invade his kingdom. When Quill’s uncle is captured, you must help guide this little mouse through a series of trials and sword fights to save his uncle from Sarffog’s clutches. A series of ingenious puzzles interrupt the action and ask you to manipulate Quill’s environment so that he can progress. You also play the whole game from a fixed perspective, so even the most susceptible to VR disease shouldn’t have to worry about losing their lunch. Moss: Book II is planned for a spring release, and we’re very excited to see Quill’s story move forward. / Our review
The Climb is not a horror game, but it forces you to stare at fear in the eyes as you climb a series of stunning rock climbing routes. Your feet never leave the ground, but Crytek’s stunning VR images convince your mind otherwise. As we climbed the crags of a snow-capped Himalayan mountain, we couldn’t help but sweat nervously. In 2021, Crytek released The Climb 2, which adds new climbing routes including caves and skyscrapers, and the ability to compete with friends in asynchronous multiplayer modes. No matter what game you play, the view from the top is amazing. / Our review
Like Beat Saber, Pistol Whip is one of those games that you have to experience to fully understand magic. The shooting game from Cloudhead Games is not exactly a rhythm game, but it speeds up your pulse and produces a rhythmic flow state. The levels are themed around various genres of action movies, and you progress slowly as enemies jump out of the cover and aim at you. Your task is to dodge their shots and eliminate them before they overwhelm you. This is another simple concept, but the execution is perfect and the excitement of victory makes you feel like John Wick.
Resident Evil 4 VR
Capcom’s iconic survival horror experience has moved to so many consoles over the years that you most likely already have it (or multiple copies). Still, you’ve never seen Resident Evil 4 like this before. Armature Studio rebuilt the game from the ground up so players could get to the heart of the Enlightened cult from a first-person perspective as they battle a horde of Plague-infected monsters. Bringing Resident Evil 4 to VR may not seem like a big deal, but it dramatically impacts the action, as you can now move freely during combat. Even if you’ve beaten RE 4 a dozen times, it’s worth another VR trip. / Our review
Room VR: a dark matter
Nothing in Room VR is going to jump and attack you, but it’s still one of the scariest experiences we’ve ever had in virtual reality. The Room franchise began as a series of ingenious puzzle games for mobile devices, but with this virtual reality entry, developer Fireproof Games proved that the concept remains solid on other platforms. You assume the role of a police inspector charged with investigating several missing persons cases scattered throughout Victorian England. However, that research quickly takes you to some dark corners of the spiritual realm as you solve environmental puzzles and uncover the secrets of a cosmic horror that threatens our very existence. / Our review
Super Hot VR
A game full of slow-motion shootings doesn’t sound intense, but the action in Superhot VR is sweeter than most traditional first-person shooter games. As long as you stand still, the world around you moves in slow motion, giving you plenty of time to assess the surrounding threats. But every time you move, the world comes to life and everyone wants to catch you. If you plan your attacks well, you can turn everyday objects around you into deadly missiles and even shoot down incoming bullets in the air with a gun. Every mission is a roller coaster of excitement. / Our review
The Walking Dead: saints and sinners
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series brought Robert Kirkman’s zombie-filled comic series to life as an adventure game and became a practical lesson on how to adapt a comic to this medium. That’s a high bar to beat, but the action / RPG / shooter of Skydance Interactive does a stellar job opening a niche of its own. You are a tourist arriving in New Orleans after the zombie outbreak making its way and shooting through an endless horde of walkers on their way to The Reserve-a rumored military bunker supposedly filled with enough supplies and weapons to wait for the undead storm to pass. Throughout this journey, gather supplies, create new equipment, and make decisions that impact the narrative. If you’re looking for another survival horror VR experience after Resident Evil 4 VR, give Saints & Sinners a try.
