Don't worry if you haven't yet upgraded to PlayStation VR2, because PlayStation VR continues to provide some of the best VR experiences available. Matter of fact, before you go on upgrading, why not take advantage of your PlayStation VR by playing the best VR experiences on this list? There are numerous options to satisfy anyone's VR gaming itch, ranging from an immersive shooter, thriller, or horror, to a resounding RPG. So read on to find out what they are!
5. Superhot VR
The first game on this list of the best PlayStation VR experiences is something of a legend. Superhot, which first appeared on PC in 2016, is a game that syncs its internal clock with your movement speed. So, in essence, the faster you move, the faster your enemies in the world around you move. Consequently, the slower you move, the slower the enemies and their bullets will come at you. It's a revolutionary concept and one that gamers knew was meant to be experienced in VR. Thankfully, it didn't take long as Superhot VR arrived for PlayStation VR the same year it launched for PC.
The feeling Superhot VR gives you is something that can only be related to Neo in The Matrix when he starts to believe in himself. Once you get the feel for it, you'll be able to dodge bullets, slice them with a katana, and do other awesome things in slow-mo or in the blink of an eye. Superhot VR truly makes you feel like you're the protagonist in your own action movie, and it is without a doubt one of the best VR experiences that everyone should try.
4. Astro Bot Rescue Mission
Sly Cooper, Sackboy, and Spyro the Dragon are just a few of PlayStation's notable mascots. However, it appears that Astro Bot will be their newest member. A new character and game series comprised from PlayStation, Astro Bot is the icon for PlayStation VR. His head is literally shaped like a VR headset. I digress; Astro Bot Rescue Mission, the game that introduced the character, is one of the best VR experiences on PlayStation VR.
Released in 2018, Astro Bot Rescue Mission has you playing as the robotic protagonist and leading him on a massive adventure to rescue his crew. Because of virtual reality, you are thrust into the middle of the action and must guide Astro Bot through every jump, obstacle, and enemy that stands in his way. Complete with over 26 missions, Astro Bot Rescue Mission is an incredibly fun and immersive VR platformer that remains one of PlayStation VR's best experiences.
3. Batman: Arkham VR
The original Batman: Arkham series was one of the most engrossing thriller action-adventure games ever to grace our screens. Fortunately, the publishers were kind enough to provide a PlayStation VR spin-off called Batman: Arkham VR. Set between the events of Batman: Arkham City (2011) and Batman: Arkham Knight (2015), you play as the dark eyes behind the mask and must investigate the disappearances of your allies Nightwing and Robin.
So, if you're looking for a bit more of an unhinged VR experience, Batman: Arkham VR will do the trick. It's a dark, mysterious, and action-packed adventure that will have you saying “I'm Batman” all the way through. So, if you truly want to feel like the caped crusader, Batman: Arkham VR is one of the best experiences on PlayStation VR for it.
2. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR
Resident Evil is one of the oldest and most notable thriller/horror gaming experiences. Known for leaving no stone unturned when it comes to grotesque, horrific, and terrifying things, the Resident Evil series alway's leaves it all out on the table. These games are terrifying enough on console, and we never would have guessed the horrifying experience would be taken one step further into VR. That was until they released Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR.
One of the all-time best experiences on PlayStation VR, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR will surely scare you into oblivion. You're back as protagonist Ethan Winters, looking for your long-missing wife on a plantation occupied by an infected family. Unsurprisingly, they aren't thrilled about your visit, and things quickly escalate into unimaginably horrific events. So, while we can't deny that it's a terrifying experience, we also can't deny that it's one of the best PlayStation VR experiences.
1. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim VR
Last on this list of the best experiences on PlayStation VR is a hall of famer RPG. That's right, get ready to belt Fus-Ro-Dah, because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is our number one pick. Thanks to PlayStation VR, one of the best RPG games of all time remains relevant a decade after its release. Experience Tamriel all over again, but this time truly through the eyes of a Khajit, Nord, or whatever race you choose in VR.
From the snowcapped peaks at the College of Winterhold to the many dark and dangerous dungeons scattered throughout the lands, the entire world of Tamriel can be explored in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR. It's essentially a carbon copy of the console version but for VR. As a result, we cannot disregard it as one of the best experiences on PlayStation VR, as games that are this complete on VR are uncommon.
