VR technology is getting more and more popular in the world of gaming, and with so many new and cool gadgets, it would be a shame if we didn’t also talk about the games you can play.
There are thousands of cool worlds to explore and hundreds of battles to have so, stop wasting your time with regular gaming! Get your headset on and start an epic journey with your favorite characters!
Below you have the amazing chance of discovering the best VR games of this year, and we made sure to select something for everyone. This means you should go through our list regardless of the gear and gaming hardware you have.
Vacation Simulator, Owlchemy Labs
Are you looking forward to that vacation in Hawaii you have planned for summer?
We all are looking forward to the days when we will be able to set all worries aside and enjoy some fun in the sun. However, there’s still a while until summer days are upon us so why not enjoy a virtual vacation?
Vacation Simulator is a sequel to another great game from the same developer, called Job Simulator. The idea is to enjoy some relaxing time in a futuristic world where machines everywhere address you with “Hey human!”
The game is multi-platform and works with Oculus, Vive, and PlayStation VR.
Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality
You don’t have to be a diehard Rick and Morty fan to like another game from Owlchemy Labs! In tone with the first name on our list, in this crazy world you are one of Morty’s clones and your job is to explore bizarre worlds and help Rick with his experiments.
Buckle up for a series of fun adventures, puzzles, and cool action that only a virtual reality where Rick and Morty are real can offer!
As long as you like weird humor, and enjoy a bit of craziness in your life, this VR game may be the perfect way to kick back and relax every Friday. Even more, it works on both HTV Vive and Oculus Touch.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
What would the world of gaming be without the Resident Evil series? We hope we never have to find out!
The game works on most platforms (PC, PS4, Xbox One), but it was designed with VR in mind. However, before you snap the headset on, keep in mind that Resi 7 is created to give you a horrific experience. So if you’re not a fan of horror video games, maybe it’s best to skip this one.
The main action is about surviving in a world where everywhere there is something or someone who is trying to kill you. You are also looking for someone and the action happens in a creepy old house.
Side note: if this is too much for you, but you still want to play something survival related, we recommend trying Surviv.io. It may not be VR, but it is less scary than RE7!
Once you played Minecraft you’ll love it forever so if you’re not prepared for this kind of commitment, we advise you to try something else. Little Big Snake may be a similar experience, but with fewer chances of becoming addicted.
Still, if you’re already hooked, there is a VR version of this wonderful game and you should try it. It works on Oculus Rift and on Samsung Gear VR and there are two modes: theater view and 360-degrees exploration.
It is definitely worth your time!
Star Trek: Bridge Crew
If you had the wonderful chance of growing up with Star Trek, we’re sure your biggest dream was to get on the bridge with the crew and travel through the universe on the famous Enterprise.
Due to VR, you can move on from the dream state and step into the virtual world of universe exploration. You and three other players will pilot a Federation starship to go where no one has ever gone before.
So, grab three friends, get your headsets, and power up the engines! The game works on PlayStation VR, Vive, and Oculus so you don’t necessarily have to team up with friends who have the same gear as you.
As you can see, the world of VR gaming is rich and has a lot to offer to anyone willing to try it. There’s adventure, fun and relaxation, and even a bit of horror in the names above, but the collection of games is getting wider every day.
