With the release of the Oculus Rift S and the continued support of the original Rift CV1, more people than ever are searching out hot new games and worthwhile older classics to enjoy in their head-mounted display. We’ve rounded up the best of the best games out there to help you build your VR library.
If we’re making some suggestions
It’s clear from this roundup that there is a ton of content available for both the Oculus Rift CV1 and newer Rift S, and, in all likelihood, there are a couple of titles you love not found here. Altogether, there’s more content here than most will need to stay entertained in VR, so we can make some suggestions to narrow things down.
Beat Saber is an all-time favorite for most people who’ve been lucky enough to give it a try, and it’s great for all ages and VR experience levels. You can start slow and ramp things up to an incredible pace as you become accustomed to the level design and mechanics, and it never seems to get old, especially now that there are extra music packs and a level editor in which you can create your own courses from music you love. As long as you don’t mind getting in a workout while you game, this is a title that should be in everyone’s VR library.
If you prefer something that puts a gun in your virtual hands, Robo Recall is an outstanding game. It’s an arcade shooter that sees you retiring rebellious robots any way you can, and it makes the most of Touch controllers. Grab and pull apart robots if they get too close, quickly teleport around, shooting as you go, and enjoy stellar graphics as you try again to make it to the top of the leaderboard by chaining combos and pulling off impressive moves.
If you just picked up a Rift S, be sure to have a look at our roundup of the best accessories available, and if you’d rather spend your dough on more games, we’ve also collected a bunch of Rift S accessories that don’t cost more than $20.
