While we’re completely aware that quality is in the eye of the beholder, we have summed up the titles that you all seem to have the most love for. Without further ado, please enjoy our list of the 10 best VR games for the Oculus Quest 2.

 

Arizona Sunshine

First up we have the iconic Arizona Sunshine, opening up today’s list with a hail of bullets. If you’re into zombie movies of the Walking Dead franchise, this would be right up your alley. The came contains a wonderful co-up multiplayer mode and is packed with over 25 different weapons for you to ram through the hordes of undead.

Developer: Vertigo Games

 

Onward VR

oculus-quest

Onward VR is another popular multiplayer FPS game. The military survival combat aspect of Onward is just out of this world. The realistic mechanics of the weapons made available to you are tactile and intrituging. All in all, the sum of its parts is a truly immersive feeling of being thrown into a modern day battlefield, fighting for your survival.

Developer: Downpour Interactive

 

Beat Saber

Beat Saber is a must for any list that ramps up the best VR games. The concept of Beat Saber, like most good ideas, is quite simple. You find yourself on a platform with floating boxes coming your way that you have to smash to bits with the help of a trusty pair of light sabers. Living out a hack-and-slash Jedi training fantasy to the tunes of your favourite tracks has proved to be a massive commercial success. If you download only one title today, make sure it’s this one.

Developer: Beat Games

 

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge

oculus-quest

Star Wars is one of those franchises that barely have to do any PR for their launches, as any mentions of new game entries in its series sparks a massive ripple of conversation among its fanbase. Star Wars have had a lot of recent successes under its belt, namely Squadron and Fallen Order. With the launch of Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, we now have a VR-compatible title we can take for a spin. In this particular experience, you get to fight alongside beloved characters from the franchise and take on enemies in iconic environments. It’s got Yoda, it’s got R2D2 – what are you waiting for?

Developer: ILMxLAB

 

POPULATION: ONE

oculus-quest

Population: One is a battle royale of massive proportions that has swooped in and taken the Oculus Quest community by storm ever since its launch on October 213, 2020. Coming in at a size of just 1.99 GB you can take part in what is by many lively fans considered the greatest battle royal to ever land in a virtual-reality compatible format. Population: One is compatible both with the Oculus Quest as well as the Oculus Rift and when you buy one, you can play on the other as well.

Developer: BigBox VR, Inc.

 

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners

oculus-quest

AAA Titles are a rarity in virtual reality as studios generally see a larger commercial market through the traditional consoles like PlayStation and XBox. That said, it seems like the team over at Skydance has managed to pulll off one hell of a game right here. In Saints and Sinners you make your way through the ruins of New Orleans, fighting off the legions of the damned as you come across them. A wonderful, wonderful post apocalyptic zombie survivla horror game.

Developer: Skydance Interactive

 

Rec Room

oculus-quest

Rec Room is the social VR hub you didn’t know you needed. The appeal of Rec Room is really not the minigames, the avatar customization or even the fact that it’s got pets and puppies. The appeal for Rec Room is the community. Virtual Reality in essence, excels at transporting you to a different place, and the way that’s apparent through the social aspects of Rec Room, bodes very well for the future of our industry. If you’re looking to meet new people online, this is a good place to start!

Developer: Rec Room Inc

 

Superhot

oculus-quest

Superhot is a fast-paced fighting force of a game. If you are into The Matrix or in any way appreciated the fighting style there, you’re going to absolutely love what’s in store for you in Superhot. It’s got ninja stars, guns, slowmotion and everything you need to nail that action hero fighting style. Superhot is up there with Beat Saber for games you simply must own.

Developer: SUPERHOT

 

Space Pirate Trainer

oculus-quest

Space Pirate Trainer is a fun and engaging arcade FPS that is just packed to the brim with lasers, droids, immersive action and enough explosions to have been partially developed by Michael Bay. The simple but enjoyable nature of Space Pirate Trainer makes it an ideal game for folks who are new to VR and want to see what the fuzz is all about.

Developer: I-Illusions

 

Robo Recall

oculus-quest

Robo Recall is a hillarious and thoroughly entertaining FPS game where you are sent out to destroy a group of servant-droids-gone-bad. The combat is tactile and fun; you can catch bullets in the air, throw droids around (through their conveniently added handles), break off the leg of one droid and beat it over the head of another – thank goodness that these are droids and not people! The voices of the your foes and their comical lines making cutting through them by the hundreds an entirely comical experience.

Developer: Drifter Entertainment / Epic Games
