VR is still something of a whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. With no one to tell us no, or where to go, how can anybody possibly know which games are worth getting? Well, because we’re good to you, we’ve put together our top 5 VR games. Each of these brings a very different experience, and each is an excellent game in its own right, let alone the fact that they are VR titles. So, without any further ado, let us soldier on into another reality.
SUPERHOT is a game so good that you need to shout the title, ideally again and again until you’ve become indoctrinated. It’s a game unlike any other, with a world filled with strange orange beings and a peculiar flow of time. It’s also one of the best VR experiences you could possibly play, and even has a wealth of post-game content thanks to the inherently arcadey nature of it. Do not sleep on this. SUPERHOT.
Where SUPERHOT distorts time, A Fisherman’s Tale distorts space. It tells the tale of a puppeteer in a lighthouse and is a wonderfully charming game designed to change the way you view the world. It’s genuinely delightful, and over the short story will have you changing your viewpoint multiple times in a series of mind-bending puzzles.
Hear us out, imagine Skyrim, but in VR. Mind blown, right? That’s exactly what you get here, one of the best-selling RPGs of this millennium but with more immersion than ever. It turns out that a lot of the enemies who look harmless on a normal screen are terrifying in VR, and casting spells and fighting is a whole new ball game. Again, Skyrim, but in VR. It’s not a hard sell.
Boxing in VR is an incredibly intense experience, and one that will actually help your fitness in real life. Creed: Rise To Glory might be one of the best personal trainers around, and the best part is you get to play games as you get fit. Not only that, but a wealth of updates means that the game is the best it has ever been. There’s really no excuse not to put the gloves on.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew has you taking control of the USS Aegis, a brand-new type of starship, and one that relies on perfect teamwork to survive. As a result, you and your friends are going to need to learn to communicate properly or you’ll be crushed by the foes staring you down. The good news is that this is actually a cross-platform game, so you can play no matter where your friends are. It’s a good laugh even when things go wrong, and a must-have for the trekkies among you.
