The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Best Screen to VR Adaptations on Oculus Quest

Let’s face it. Virtual reality simply outperforms screen media. While you generally sit back and relax while watching your favorite TV series and movies, virtual reality headsets usually allow you to actively operate weapons and environmental features, completely immersing yourself in your favorite TV shows. So, if you want to go the extra mile and immerse yourself in the context of your favorite film, you should switch from casual viewing to actively playing them in virtual reality. Fortunately, the Oculus Quest provides a wide range of possibilities. Your only job is to pick one of the best screen-to-VR adaptations on Oculus Quest below.

10. Stranger Things VR

For the first time, you can experience Stranger Things from Vecna's perspective in VR. Unfortunately, the game holds your hand too much, veering off from being fully interactive. It's often narrative-driven, walking you down events from the Upside Down. At least the visuals are stunning, and the controls work smoothly. Plus, you do enjoy an immersive universe that captures the show's spirit. Still, Stranger Things VR may be most suitable for fans who can't get enough of the lore.

9. Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord

Finally, you get to play the role of a ghostbuster in virtual reality. You don't always have to answer calls alone. You can always bring friends to help bust ghosts, which will, in the end, prove the smart decision you made. Don't worry. Your proton pack does get the job done, although the visuals and difficulty level could use more love.

8. Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge

As a droid repair technician, you'll immerse yourself into the Star Wars universe, interacting with C-3PO, R2-D2, Yoda, Batuu, and other iconic Star Wars characters. While you won't have Jedi powers, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge does a decent job of unraveling a compelling story with stunning scenery. Still, at two to four hours of playtime and a lack of upgrades, your experience can feel short-lived.

7. Jurassic World Aftermath Collection

Jurassic World Aftermath Collection thrives on stealth mechanics. It's probably the only game in which you can't go up against a dinosaur and win. So, you make the least sound when moving and hide when you spot a Raptor. If the Raptor sees you, though, well, it'll be only a matter of seconds before you're dead. Jurassic World is really a cat-and-mouse show, and no other game portrays that concept of tension better than Jurassic World Aftermath Collection.

6. Creed: Rise to Glory – Championship Edition

Creed: Rise to Glory – Championship Edition, portrays a rise to the top campaign. You train as a rookie under some of the biggest names in boxing, going up against legendary opponents and, ultimately, earning champion status. As is boxing in real life, the VR adaptation cultivates a strong spirit of endurance and skill. It pushes you to the limit, which also translates into physical pressure. All in good fun, though, that pays off in the end.

5. Marvel's Iron Man VR

I bet the first time you watched Iron Man on the big screen, the thought of what it must be like to take flight in his power suit crossed your mind. Well, now you can do it in the closest way technology deems possible. Check out Marvel's Iron Man VR, starring Iron Man, a mysterious villain, Ghost, and her army of hacked Stark drones. You'll unravel Tony Stark's struggles with being a war profiteer and explore a compelling comic book adventure. Best of all, you’ll take to the skies in Iron Man's suit, complete with thrusters and slick maneuvers mid-air.

4. Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom

The Peaky Blinders show is no stranger to binge-watchers. It's captivated the masses across several seasons and constantly pokes at societal views of right and wrong. To walk in the shoes of sharply dressed Peaky Blinders, check out Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom VR. The VR adaptation draws inspiration from the epic gangster drama, tasking you with the honor of proving yourself worthy of joining the Peaky Blinders gang. You'll trade blows in the famed 1920s treacherous streets of Birmingham, unwinding a compelling plot and coming face-to-face with notorious Shelby himself.

3. Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul

Fans of the popular Paranormal Activity franchise will love Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, which outright welcomes you into another edition of wetting-your-pants. Except, this isn't your everyday horror experience. You'll curate a different experience with each run, thanks to the game's proprietary scare engine. Ultimately, it boils down to a scavenger hunt for secrets and items in a haunted house, yet throughout, it is littered with puzzles and scares. All along, an ever-present sense of terror hangs thick in the air.

2. Star Trek: Bridge Crew

Journey among the stars in Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Just like the show, you'll need to build strong teamwork and communication. The closer and stronger the crew, the more likely you are to survive the challenges ahead. Star Trek: Bridge Crew does a fantastic job of portraying an authentic universe. The U.S.S. Aegis feels surreal to walk in. If you ever wonder what it feels like to be a part of a space crew, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is it.

1. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners

It's easy to yell at actors in survival shows when they don't do what you expect them to do. In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, though, you'll have no excuse, with the game casting you as a hardened survivor traveling through a zombie-ridden New Orleans. Every gameplay element gels perfectly to create a wholesome Walking Dead experience. From exhilarating combat, immersive environments, a compelling story, and stellar visuals. You push your combat skills to the limit in the more brutal sections and cautiously let loose amid the excellent story bits of the game.
