Between the drops in prices for hardware and the increased support for the system, virtual reality (VR) is now more accessible than ever. This is especially true for the Oculus Quest, an independent VR gaming system that needs no PC or console to run its games.
But with hundreds of games for you to try, which ones should you start with? This guide can help.
You don’t need to be a fan of rhythm games to like Beat Saber. You just need to be willing to hack, slash, and duck your way to the end of the beat map. The game is super fun, and it has varying levels of difficulty you can play whether you’re in the mood for a good time or a good workout.
If you’ve ever wished to know what The One felt like when he slow-dodged those bullets in The Matrix, SuperHot VR is here to let you emulate the experience. SuperHot VR is a very strategic bullet-hell game. Time stops—along with enemies and projectiles—when you don’t move then speeds up to real-time when you do.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
Saints & Sinners is one of the best choose your own adventure games available, and releasing it on VR only adds to the immersive experience. Much like any The Walking Dead game, you battle hordes of zombies and meet desperate survivors. Whether you work with them or leave them alone is your choice.
