So – You’ve bought it – you finally got your hands on that fancy piece of modern tech that everybody’s talking about for the past year, and now it’s time to look at some awesome Playstation VR games, so you can get things rolling.

You could have considered the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive, but you choose to go with the popular best-seller. You couldn’t have picked a better time to get started, and in terms of price/product balance, you made a good choice.

PlayStation VR were some years in the making, and in 2016 post-launch, the amount of titles available were slim pickings to say the least. These days the landscape looks a lot different and  there’s VR games all around. In fact, the Sony PlayStation Store keeps rolling out titles at a rapid pace, with a high minimum threshold in terms of quality.

It can however, be quite the jungle to navigate the best and most entertaining PlayStation VR games as there’s so many of them. To make it all easier on you, we’re presenting you with what we at the editorial regard as our top 10 favourite games you should be playing in 2018. There’s a lot out there, but having gone through them all with a fine comb – these truly are the best.

 

Archangel VR

First up on today’s list is a drop-dead gorgeous title for your library of PlayStation VR games this year. Archangel does not only have the appearance and visual fidelity of an AAA game – its gameplay and story line is equally well done. Explore what’s left in a post-apocalyptic world and take your place among massive mecha giants in this fantastic space shooter. If you are a sci-fi fan, or just need to pick up a first title to go with your brand-new immersive Christmas gift, this one is a safe bet for sure.

The Inpatient

As our first and only item on the list that was actually released this year, The Inpatient makes a very strong case for why you should be paying close attention to the horror-genre in PlayStation VR games. It’s packed to the brim with jump scares, and (being the prequel to Until Dawn) has an eerie and creepy atmosphere, that you would think could only be conjured up to be this scary, in virtual reality. Horror as a genre, doesn’t need much more than a playful mix of light and shadow as well as the occasional loud sound to be effective. The beauty of this game is that it doesn’t fully rely on visuals alone. The age-old instruments of classic horror intrigue is kept alive still. For those of you who liked the SOMA game, the Amnesia franchise or any of the old Resident Evil games – this one is for you.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Next up we have the latest edition of Skyrim by Bethesda. One of the things that on its launch made Skyrim so incredibly popular, was just how life-like this first-person sandbox RPG was. It was as if you were entering a brand-new world in which non of it really looked like computer graphics. It looked and felt real, and with the right kind of computer – you could really immerse yourself in a realm of dragons, wizards and kings. These days, all you need is a Playstaion VR, and you can jump right into this re-booted version full of pristine visuals and a captivating storyline. Pick up that buckler over there, and become the hero that Tamriel needs!

Farpoint VR

Farpoint is an absolutely stunning piece of video game art. Being one of the few VR games that has received an overwhelming wave of positive reviews, it’s easy to see what has made the community react that way. All you have to do is fire up the game and gaze away at the hauntingly beautiful sci-fi environment, and realize – that’s not even the best part. Farpoint VR is an FPS shooter, and a rather ambitious one at that we are surprised to see out, so early to the platform. If you are any kind of a fan of games such as Halo, Mad Max and Doom, you may want to pick this one up as well. As Playstation VR games go – Farpoint is not too shabby!

Headmaster VR

Coming up next is an unlikely hero, yet one of the best Playstation VR games on the list.. Headmaster is by no means a game that will captivate you with a harrowing story, or make you feel like the king of the world in multiplayer FPS combat. What it will give you, however – is your first real good laugh in the Playstation VR. It’s 2018, and there are a lot of titles on the market right now for you to indulge in, but Headmaster is one you’d want to always have readily available when it’s time to unplug. It doesn’t require any kind of preparation or past-franchise for you to know what to do. Just put on that VR headset of yours and put your best head-tilt forwards, swinging at whatever comes your way. The only bad thing we can say about Headmaster is that it may induce a bit of motion sickness.

It’s time we brought something crazy into the mix. Up until now we have presented you with an escapade of joyful or nostalgic explorations with VR. It’s time to bring the pain – let’s take a look at a blood-dripping, jump-scary horror-show that we honestly regard as the finest experience for VR yet – if you can stomach it. Resident Evil 7 follows the tale of a man whose long lost love which has been presumed dead has finally revealed herself. Without much further ado, you pack your keys and drive out to the location she has given you. The location happens to be a desolate house in the deep woods.

The destination you finally at to, is more of an abandoned prison than a house – and yet, one with a terrible history of sorrow, horror and tragedy. Resident Evil 7 is a first-person survival horror game where you must utilize every means necessary to survive the dreaded events that take place once you close the door to the abandoned house and pick up your flashlight. This is truly a remarkable game, and if you have anything positive to say about the Amnesia or FEAR-franchises, you will feel right at home here.
