Putt Up or Shut Up: Walkabout Mini Golf VR

Walkabout Mini Golf VR

What We Like
  • Creative course designs.

  • Hidden golf balls and other unlockables.

  • Tons of DLC courses.

What We Don't Like
  • All the DLC can get expensive.

  • Graphics could be better.

This is not the only reason Walkabout Mini Golf is one of the most popular games, but, face it, it would be enough: It's arguably more fun than the real thing. Once you've mastered all of the built-in courses and their respective hard modes, there are more courses available as DLC, including one based on Jim Henson's Labyrinth.

Shoot Hoops for Free: Gym Class – Basketball VR

Gym Class – Basketball

What We Like
  • Realistic physics.

  • Global stat charts.

  • Free to play.

What We Don't Like
  • Simple graphics.

  • Not so fun to play alone.

Gym Class is much more exciting than the name suggests. It's a competitive basketball simulator featuring several multiplayer and single-player modes. Visit a friend's personal court or compete in tournaments against strangers from around the globe. The game is free to play, but if you pay for GM Mode, you can customize your court, avatar, and ball.

PokerStars VR

What We Like

  • The developers are responsive to feedback.

What We Don't Like
  • Lots of inexperienced players.

  • You can spend a lot of real money.

Try your hand at poker, blackjack, roulette, or slots in a virtual casino. Real-time chat makes it feel like you're really at the table, which makes it easier to bluff and identify your opponents' tells. Dig into the bag of interactive props to keep things interesting.

A zombie in Arizona Sunshine

What We Like
  • Long campaign mode.

  • Lots of DLC.

  • Wide variety of maps and weapons.

What We Don't Like
  • No competitive mode.

  • No cross-play with PC.

Arizona Sunshine is a survival horror game that's fun to play alone or with friends. With dozens of weapons at your disposal, the goal is to kill zombies so that you can get more ammo so that you can kill more zombies. Up to four people can play together in horde mode, or you can team up with one other person in campaign mode. It's a bloody good time.

Help Each Other Escape the Afterlife: Carly and the Reaperman

Carly and the Reaperman

What We Like
  • Fun to play alone or in co-op mode.

  • Creative visuals and story.

  • Oculus Quest 2 same-room multiplayer.

What We Don't Like
  • No cross-play with Steam.

  • Both players must purchase the game to play together in VR.

Carly and the Reaperman is a fantastical puzzle game that supports cooperative multiplayer with only one headset. You can both play in VR if you have two headsets, or one person can play as Carly on a PC while the other plays as the Reaperman on the Quest.

Battle Royale in VR: Population - One

Population One VR

What We Like
  • Cross-play with PC.

  • Cross-purchase with the Oculus Rift.

  • Regular updates and live in-game events.

What We Don't Like
  • Steep learning curve.

  • No solo mode.

Population: One is a battle royale game similar to Fortnite with various PvP and PvE modes. Join up with other players in teams of three to take on the rest of the world. You'll have to be creative because Population: One is as much about shooting as it is about building, climbing, and gliding.

Serve or Be Served: Cook Out

Cook Out: A Sandwich Tale

What We Like
  • Cook alone or with others.

  • Challenging without being frustrating.

What We Don't Like
  • Cooking by yourself isn't as fun.

  • Occasional graphical glitches.

In Cook Out, your job is to assemble increasingly complex recipes with the help of friends or a robot assistant. Featuring 200 recipes, 40 levels, and an endless play mode, it's far more fun than flipping burgers in real life. Since all of the action is stationary, it's perfect for players with limited mobility or those who get motion sickness.

Boldly Go to New Worlds: Star Trek - Bridge Crew

Star Trek: Bridge Crew


What We Like
  • Dramatic storyline and missions.

  • “Ongoing Missions” mode regularly offers new challenges.

  • Can be played without a headset.

What We Don't Like
  • The “action” is mostly stationary.

  • Missions can get tense and time-consuming.

Take charge of the USS Aegis and boldly go where no one has gone before. In Star Trek: Bridge Crew, you and your fellow Starfleet team must maneuver your ship through uncharted space. Play as a captain, tactical officer, engineer, or helm officer for a different perspective in each mission.

Best VR Haunted House: Mirewood Manor

Mirewood Manor

What We Like
  • Multiple single-player and co-op game modes.

  • Long story mode.

  • Free with in-app purchases.

What We Don't Like
  • Not very scary.

  • Platforming sections very too difficult.

While you can explore Mirewood Manor on your own, it's best to bring a friend or three. You'll encounter otherworldly ghosts, deadly escape rooms, and endless jump scares. You can easily spend 10 hours on the main story alone, and there are additional game modes and mini-games for even more fun.

Best VR MMORPG: Zenith - The Last City

Zenith: The Last City

What We Like
  • Fly, climb, swim, and zipline through a massive open world.

  • Cool cooking and crafting mechanics.

  • Creative combat system.

What We Don't Like
  • Gets repetitive after a while.

  • Limited character variety.

  • Mediocre graphics.

If you enjoy MMO games like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy XIV, you definitely want to try Zenith: The Last City. After you create your custom character, form a guild with friends and embark on a raid together or jump into a public event. Explore dungeons, collect treasure, and slay bosses to gain experience points and grow stronger.

Best Multiplayer VR Flight Simulator: Warplanes - WW1 Fighters

War Planes: WW1 Fighters


What We Like
  • Outstanding realistic visuals.

  • Adjustable controls and difficulty.

  • Single-player, PvP, and co-op multiplayer modes.

What We Don't Like

  • Easy to play but difficult to master.

After picking a side in Warplanes: WW1 Fighters, you can take on hundreds of missions in over a dozen different planes. As you complete missions, you'll earn medals that can be traded to upgrade your skills. You can adjust the controls to be more realistic or more like a classic arcade flight simulator.
