Here is the list of the 25 best games for the Oculus Quest and the best experiences to enjoy on this headset. A selection of essentials for the autonomous headset of the Facebook subsidiary.
Released just over six months ago, the Oculus Quest alone has revived consumer interest in virtual reality. It is true that this autonomous virtual reality headset has a lot of qualities that please. Sales of the Oculus Quest are well above expectations, proof of the success of this device which offers mainstream virtual reality. The success of such a helmet is also accompanied by a particularly extensive catalog. Launched with a catalog of 50 applications, it has rapidly swelled in recent months with the adaptation of many major titles in virtual reality.
Best games and apps for the Oculus Quest
To help you choose the best titles to take advantage of your headset, here is a list concocted by our colleagues from the newspaper “Upload VR”. This selection of the best games and apps covers a wide spectrum of genres of virtual reality games.
25. Raccoon Lagoon: a very relaxing game
Until Nintendo got serious about virtual reality, Raccoon Lagoon is probably the closest thing to Animal Crossing with a virtual reality headset. In this adorable island lifestyle game, you explore idyllic places and complete tasks to create a group of incredibly cute creatures. The full support of cooperation makes it an excellent starting point for those who wish to live a more relaxing, relaxing reality experience.
24. Wands: duels of sorcerers
Virtual reality has no shortage of spellbinding adventures, but Wands is probably the best place to get something from Harry Potter on Oculus Quest. In this magical duel game, you can customize your set of moves and face them in spectacular battles. Add PvP support and you have one of the most robust magician games in virtual reality and one of the best games in Oculus Quest.
23. Fujii: a paradise exploration on Oculus Quest
Fujii may be a little light on content, but it’s hard to deny that the game’s interactions with environmental design are top notch. This offers a virtual paradise in which you awaken beautiful biomes by exploring and discovering a hypnotic range of wild animals. It’s over before you really get lost, but you can revisit it at your leisure and grow your own plants.
22. Orbus Reborn: a very good MMO on Quest
The search for a big budget virtual reality MMO is desired but, in the meantime, Orbus VR is a good place to whet your appetite. Orbus VR also returned recently to refine its traditional interpretation of the genre with pleasant results. It’s one of the only places in virtual reality to meet online, choose your own class, and then take it to the next level with hours of content with a cross-play of full PC headsets.
21. BoxVR: to exercise in a fun way
The success of Beat Saber inevitably invited many imitators, but BoxVR stands out for its commitment to entertainment and fitness. In this addictive, rhythmic boxing game, you can track calories, set goals, and even create playlists to keep working as long as you want. In addition, the online multiplayer mode adds a welcome touch of competition. If you are looking to lose weight with VR, this is one of the best places to do it.
20. Dreadhalls: an excellent defector from Gear VR
Dreadhalls could win the award for the oldest virtual reality game from the Oculus Quest. This procedurally generated scarefest was launched for the first time in the early days of Gear VR, but lost none of its interest on Facebook’s standalone headset. Explore obscure labyrinths in search of escape, avoid death by monsters and expect to jump and scream a lot. Fun for the whole family…
19. Thumper: maximum pressure
Thumper may not have been originally designed for the Oculus Quest, but its compelling blend of scary atmosphere and visuals makes it just as powerful as when it was first launched on PlayStation VR. You must avoid destruction when you accelerate on a defined path at an alarming speed, trying not to succumb to a frightening feeling of fear when the pressure builds up. This is one of the best games on Oculus Quest.
18. Journey of the Gods: Zelda on Oculus Quest
Oculus himself described the Voyage of the Gods as an adventure similar to that of Zelda and we cannot think of a better way to say it. It may not have the scale of a Nintendo epic, but it captures the quick wit and invention with satisfying results. Whether you’re slaughtering monsters with a sword or inviting the power of the gods to change landscapes, Journey of the Gods presents is a great Quest game in virtual reality.
17. Robo Recall Unplugged: a great shooter
We didn’t think the brilliant shooter from Epic Games would ever be able to hit the object released on Oculus Quest. Yet the basic experience remains entirely intact here. This very complete set of enemy waves lets you play as you please and have fun in the robot massacre. Graphically, this obviously does not correspond to the original on PC, but it is still a success which proves that the platform is capable of large-scale virtual reality games.
16. Construction Apex: a successful ambitious adaptation
Apex Construct must be one of the most ambitious ports of PC VR and PSVR at the Oculus Quest, offering a complete campaign built around the satisfaction that comes from shooting with a bow and arrow in virtual reality. Fast Travel games have successfully converted with style, offering a full version of the functionality of a fun, if not spectacular, adventure that gives you a taste of what a great VR game looks like.
15. Rec Room and VRChat: the best of social on Oculus Quest
There are many social reality spaces, but few of them can compete with Rec Room and VRChat in terms of accessibility and content. Rec Room not only offers a nice mix of activities ranging from sports to cooperative quests, but also provides the community with the tools they need to have fun. And VRChat itself is a sprawling center of possibilities and you can explore them with friends on other helmets and even create your own worlds and avatars. It’s as if we’re closer to Ready Player One so far. In addition, both applications are completely free!
14. Face Your Fears II: one of the best horror games on Quest
If virtual reality is good, it will surely scare your friends. Face Your Fears II has been specially designed for this purpose, offering a number of scary scenarios that you can dare to face. In addition, Face Your Fears II is convincing proof that the best virtual reality does not have to mean long-term experiences that tick all the boxes. Shorter and more precise applications can often have a greater impact.
13. Racket: NX is a mix of pinball and tennis
Racket: NX is unique because it imagines a sport that would not be possible in real life. It’s like playing tennis solo with a pinball machine. Each time you hit the ball, it bounces around you in 360 ° and creates an insane addiction with its satisfying haptics and excellent sound. It’s one of the few virtual reality games where you can spend time tweaking a real skill, just like you would in real life. It is also a great experience for the first time that embodies the benefits of the wireless room scale.
12. Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes: the great classic
About four years after its first virtual reality release, Keep Talking and Nobody Eexplodes remains one of the most instantaneous and effective means of displaying virtual reality at parties and gatherings. A player puts on a helmet to defuse a bomb. Others refer to a free manual detailing the steps necessary to survive. The players must work together, communicating at each stage to obtain a sure result. It’s frantic, ridiculous, heated and essential in any virtual reality library. This makes it one of the best games in the Oculus Quest.
11. Acron: a collaborative game with friends
Acron is a virtual reality game like no other. VR players become a tree that has to throw seeds and other weapons at the squirrels to prevent them from stealing their nuts. The twist? These squirrels are actually other players, who join smartphones via a free application working together to distract the user from virtual reality and claim their prize. It is a winning concept that translates transparently into a local and fluid multi-player virtual reality experience.
10. Job Simulator: another great classic
There is a reason why Job Simulator remains one of the most referenced virtual reality experiences since its launch in 2016. Its finely tuned mix of engaging interactions and sandbox environments makes it the ideal place to present the virtual reality to others. It is a stupid, liberating and truly magical virtual experiment. Expect the launch of Vacation Simulator on Oculus Quest to be just as important.
9. Virtual-Virtual Reality: an excellent narrative experience on Oculus Quest
Virtual-Virtual Reality feels ahead of its time. It’s a narrative-driven virtual reality experience that takes a satirical look at the future we find ourselves in when we buy these new headsets. The more you plunge into its twisted world, the more revealing this edifying tale becomes. An essential part of the narrative of virtual reality at the beginning.
8. The Exorcist: Legion VR will plunge you into absolute terror
Wolf & Wood was the perfect solution for an Exorcist VR game. The studio’s “A Chair in a Room” series sought a more discouraging brand of psychological fear than that of many cheaper horror games. He applies this logic to this disturbing five-part series that lives up to its name. Exorcist VR is a methodical police terror that you will not want to miss … if you are brave enough.
7. I Expect You To Die: Become a Spy on Oculus Quest
“I expect you to die,” of Schell Games, launched years ago, offered a handful of levels that created a great escape with a virtual reality style. Since then, the developer has added even more levels for free, making the Oculus Quest version, which arrived in May 2019, the best version yet . It is an extremely pleasant component designed specifically for virtual reality.
6. Accounting +: a delusional universe
Virtual reality is no stranger or more unreal than Accounting +, and we hear it very well. This crazy mashup of the minds of Rick and Morty and Crows, is a surprising and erratic exploration of the presence of characters in virtual reality. In Accounting +, grotesque creatures yell at you and friendly abominations are wiped out by accident. It’s scary, awkward, and hilarious and many other things that most virtual reality games don’t have. This makes it one of the best games in the Oculus Quest.
5. Moss: a very successful third-person platformer
Moss is another game that might not seem like a natural choice for the Oculus Quest. This third-person platformer creates a powerful link between the player and the protagonist that fuels the innovative gameplay and the joyful sense of discovery. If you don’t have a PlayStation VR or PC headset, this is the best example of why virtual reality doesn’t have to be the first person to succeed.
4. Red Matter: the best adaptation on Oculus Quest
In general, many developers have done a very good job in bringing their VR games for PC and consoles to the Oculus Quest. However, no one has managed to do this as well as Red Matter, which absolutely shines on the platform. In this intriguing mystery, you travel to an alien planet to investigate an abandoned enemy base in the midst of a Cold War-style sci-fi conflict. However, developer Vertical Robot puts immersion first, creating an experience in which you can really get lost.
3. Beat Saber: the big revelation
Beat Saber finds its most natural form on Oculus Quest. A wireless game that breaks down the barriers between you and music by weaving your way through a growing list of tracks. Beat Saber is a powerful, energetic and most addictive game in virtual reality. Don’t expect this status to change anytime soon.
2. Star Wars: Vader Immortal Episode I + II: for Star Wars fans
Star Wars: Vader Immortal is a fascinating example of a virtual reality experience that lies between play and interactive storytelling. Her story is a lesson in “living life” self-proclaimed by developer ILMxLAB, which strives to make you feel like a character in a very distant galaxy. You will really feel yourself in the presence of the Dark Lord and brandishing a real lightsaber.
1. Superhot VR: arguably the best game on Quest
Here’s another win for Superhot VR. This is a testament to the power of this virtual reality shooter even today. A powerful combination of movements of virtual reality, combat and cinematic flair that others can only reproduce. Better yet, Quest’s lack of cables and first-rate port make it the best way to play arguably the best game in virtual reality. Dethroning Superhot VR will be difficult.
