VR gaming has taken the world by storm, with more and more gamers onboarding the technology. There are a ton of VR games out there, but not all of them are pearls. Let’s take a look at 10 epic VR games you need to try.
10. Beat Saber
Sometimes it’s good to get your ass off the couch, even when you’re gaming. Beat Saber isn’t just your standard rhythm game – nope, this one has lightsabers. It’s a great workout – jump, dip, dodge, and wiggle your way to the top, all while the neon game pieces whizz by your head.
9. Catan VR
Fans of Settlers of Catan will be delighted to find that they’ve now made a VR version, bringing the board game into the digital landscape. Give this one a whirl in VR, and experience it as you never have before.
Can you even call yourself a gamer if you haven’t played Skyrim before? Honestly, I don’t think so. Now’s time to play the upgraded version of this classic game in VR. Even better is that you can stay seated while you play, and keep that lazy ass firmly planted on the couch (nobody is saying that a lazy day is a bad thing, sometimes we all need it).
7. Eve Valkyrie
If the concept of space doesn’t terrify you (it terrifies me), Eve Valkyrie is one seriously wild trip. Ever wanted to pilot a spaceship in a dogfight? This game brings you six vs six matches, allowing you to play with your buddies. It’s a good time.
Personally, The Invisible Hours gets my pumped. I crave detective shit, and solving the murder of Nikola Tesla is high up on my list. As the sleuth, you’ll be investigating various suspects, all in VR.
First-person shooters might seem played out, but Superhot takes you on one hell of a wild journey down a rabbit hole that’s a lot deeper than it seems. This time, you’re not just shooting baddies – but we won’t spoil it. Seriously, this one is worth a shot (excuse the pun).
4. Rec Room
Wii Sports is a hellscape, but Wii Sports in VR sounds like a pretty damn good time, and that’s essentially what Rec Room is. Rec Room is a multiplayer experience that enables you to mess around with your friends doing a range of activities, like paintball, escape rooms, and bowling. It’s stupid, clean fun, and frankly it’s what we all need from time to time.
This game is also known as “Friendship Ruiner: The Game”, and for good reason. It places you and a friend as bomb disarmers, with one person on the headset, and the other with the disarming guide, who can’t see the screen. This is seriously tense, so don’t expect to walk away unscathed.
2. Smash Hit
This game originally started as a mobile app, but the VR version really ramps it up a notch. The concept is pretty simple, you throw silver balls to break glass, and make your way to the end. It’s a lot more soothing than it sounds, and a great way to let out some frustration after a long day.
Number 1 on the list of 10 epic VR games you need to try is Arizona Sunshine. This zombie survival game is so immersive, you can practically feel the blood and guts splatter onto your face. Arizona Sunshine is actually tougher than a lot of zombie games, giving you limited ammo and not the best aim. If your blood pressure is already high, maybe sit this one out.
VR games for the end of the world
So, out of these 10 epic VR games you need to try, which is your favourite? If you have a VR headset and some time, they’re seriously worth checking out. As everything else in life has come to a standstill, why let your gaming down?
