Top 10 VR Games That Will Impress You

Throughout the year VR consoles have shown, with increasing regularity, the potential they wield. Here is our list of top 10 VR games that have impressed us and set a high benchmark for all future titles.

No Man’s Sky: Beyond

No Man's Sky: Beyond is one of the best VR games around

The open-ended world contains lots of hidden treasures

 

We will kick it right off with a new update to No Man’s Sky, which finally transported the game into virtual reality. As the generated universe is seamlessly neverending, you have plenty of opportunities for adventure. Alternatively, you can sit back and soak in the beautiful graphics and vastness of space. Unfortunately, this graphic experience doesn’t really translate to the PS VR, where it looks a bit blurry. The gaming interface has been diligently remade to accommodate VR, which was a successful step in creating an immersive experience. Save some incompatibility issues, No Man’s Sky still remains one of the best VR titles. We cannot wait to find out where Hello Games will take it next.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim VR

Top 10 VR Games That Will Impress You

As you begin swinging your sword in a hectic battle against the Falmers, you will be wondering how you ever played Skyrim any other way. The movements needed for blocking and attacking are pretty realistic, and immediately transport us to the magical and inhospitable world of the Old Kingdom. Although original is nearly a decade old, this is still one of our favorite VR games.

Skyrim VR also includes every DLC expansion, such as Heartfire and Dawnguard.

Rec Room

Rec Room is another solid VR Game

In the Rec Room, the party never stops

What a better way to introduce your friends with the magic of VR than to jump into the Rec Room? It can be described as a VR hang out spot, where you can interact with people around the world and participate in various minigames like disc golf and paintball. The world looks warm and inviting, and although you can experience some bizarre situations it’s always very fun. Strap on, turn on your mic, and prepare to meet some lifelong friends. Did we mention it is also completely free?

Batman: Arkham VR

Batman Arkham: is one of the best VR games around

A short but sweet detective story

Who didn’t want to be a Batman as a child? Arkham VR focuses on Batman’s detective work, so while the game is a bit slower in pace, it more than compensates by capturing the atmosphere of Arkham City. It’s important to note that this is a spinoff in vein of murder mysteries and as such stands separate from other Arkham lore.

Fallout 4 VR

Guys from Bethesda also decided to bring a post-apocalyptic world of Fallout one step closer. This is a full adaptation, so rather than just teleporting, you are also able to roam the wastelands freely on a room-scale level. The goriness of the game has become more extreme, as bodyparts are flying directly in your face. You will need quite a powerful PC to run it in all its glory, but it more than pays off.

Doom VHR

Ready to show the demons who is the boss?

Doom VFR is an adaptation of 2016’s release but has a different campaign and significantly changed combat dynamics. It is best played standing up, as you will frequently be pressed to stand up or crouch while dealing with various incarnations of bloodthirsty demons. Although the game originally used teleportation, you also have the option to move with your controller. Doom VFR will keep you occupied until Doom Eternal hits the screen.

Polybius

Polybius is another VR game that left us impressed

Polybius is immediately recognizable for its psychedelic style

Polybius might be the weirdest game on this list. It is a retro shoot-em-up game reminiscent of Space Invaders, albeit in 3-D. The game offers 50 levels in which you will need to kill everything that moves while also avoiding a potential collision. Be careful though, some people might experience motion sickness.

Stormland

"A

Stormland is a VR first-person shooter that feels like a sci-fi version of Far Cry. What really shines through is an impressive implementation of combat and movement that challenges the way we think about FPS games set in virtual space. In Stormland, you will do acrobatic 100 feet jumps that feel badass and climb on top of various buildings, and these skills are scalable as well. Combine all of this with a vast open-ended world and you quickly realize why this is one of the best VR games around.

Superhot VR

Superhot VR will keep you aware of your every move

From SuperhotTeam comes this wildly original combat/puzzle game. Your main goal is to clear every enemy in the room, simple right? But the key is this; time stands still until you move. You will be given a lot of time to think, but be careful of making sudden moves. The weapons can be acquired from enemies, and you can even shoot the bullets to keep them from hitting you. All this in an unforgettable visual style that might make you think: “What did Susan put in my drink?”.

Beat Saber

The force is strong with this one

Lastly, we have a fast-paced block-slashing game that will test how well you can follow the rhythm of the music. Think of it as a spiritual successor to the Guitar Hero series. Instead of plastic Guitar, you are using your 2 motion controllers to slice through the air, either horizontally or vertically. The game comes with 10 songs, but the real fun really starts when you import your own songs and slash through. In no time, you will become a musical samurai. Thanks to it success, Beat Saber has recently been awarded the Playstation VR award.
