In 1958, Pong was released. Pong was a simple tennis game that consisted of bouncing a ball back and forth between two players. It’s difficult to imagine that the first video game came out less than sixty years ago. In the past sixty years, it is safe to say that video games have evolved to the point where they are getting hyper-realistic. The sophistication of video games leads to great immersion, and nothing is more immersive than Virtual Reality.

In this article, we will be examining the top ten Virtual Reality Games and the best games out now for the Oculus Quest.

  1. Beat Saber

    If you have ever scrolled through your Facebook news feed and seen a colorful game that involves slashing cubes, you have already experienced Beat Saber.

    Beat Saber is an immersive musical game that tests your rhythm and stamina. The game starts with you facing a stream of incoming blocks. These blocks are all different patterns and color-coded. You need to hit the blocks with the correct hand and also to the timing of the beat. To make the game more interesting, occasionally, you will have to avoid obstacles that require you to duck, slide, and dodge. Unlike some of the games on this list, Beat Saber requires you to be very active. You will be slashing, dodging, and bobbing your head to the music as you try to beat your high scores.

    This game is available on the Oculus Rift, Rift S, and Quest, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality.

    Superhot is another shooting game with a twist. By slowing your own movements, you are able to slow the movement of time around you. This allows for fun gameplay that involves dodging bullets in slow motion and returning fire on slowed down enemies. This game also does not limit you to just guns, you are free to attack enemies with any object that you can get your hands on. Very few games in the world involve you killing a hostile enemy with a coffee mug or a water bottle.

  10. The Lab

    We wanted to end this list with The Lab. It is a free game produced by Valve that exists in the same realm as Portal 2. It’s not a direct sequel or prequel, but still retains that special spark that made Portal 2 so fun. You get to explore the universe of Aperture Science and have a large selection of mini games that you can play. You can do anything from repair robots to defend castles with a bow and arrow.
