The best Oculus Quest 2 games
Our selection of the best Oculus Quest 2 games are here so you can get the most out of the Facebook-owned Quest 2 virtual reality headset.
There's a plethora of native games available for the headset through the Oculus Store. But thanks to the Oculus Link cable, you can actually connect the Oculus Quest 2 to a gaming desktop or laptop and play VR games with high-fidelity graphics.
So with that in mind, we've pulled together the best Oculus Quest games available to buy and try right now.
What are the best Oculus Quest 2 games?
Picking out the best Oculus Quest 2 games depends heavily on the type of games you want to play. And bear in mind that might change a good bit when you have all the action strapped right up against your face; horror game fans might not find jump scares so easy to deal with then they are happening quite literally tight in front of you eyes.
However, there are plenty of games that can take advantage of a VR setup, so you won't be left wanting. And if you like shoot 'em ups, for example, Population:One puts a unique spin on the battle royale concept by letting you scale and fight from different surfaces. Fight fans will also appreciate the physics of SuperHot VR.
However, Half-Life: Alyx is arguably one of the best VR experiences and games around, so while you may need to buy it through Steam, you're not likely to regret the purchase.
For less combat-filled games, check out Beat Saber, which takes Guitar Hero and transports it to a virtual world. VR also lets you enjoy recreational activities from the comfort of your home, with VR takes on golf (Topgolf), fishing (Real VR Fishing) and even ping-pong (Eleven Table Tennis) among the best of the best on the Oculus Quest 2.
The best Oculus Quest 2 games you can buy
1. Half-Life: Alyx
If ever there was a game you wanted to use to show off what experiences virtual reality can really provide, then half-Life: Alyx is the game you will want to go to. While it's not Half-Life 3, it's a game built by Valve specifically for VR headsets, even though the gaming giant didn't really expect to sell a huge amout of copies.
While it may be niche, it's also a stellar example of how good VR gaming can be when time and development expertise is brought to bear. Over on our sibling site PC Gamer, Christopher Livingston praised Half-Life: Alyx for its attention to detail, interaction, story telling, setting and more.
And while it's not strictly a Quest 2 game, as it's not on the Oculus store, by using the PC link cable to connect the Quest 2 to a gaming PC you can enjoy one of the best VR games ever made.
Buy on Steam
Despite its flamboyant style, Oculus’s exclusive VR Battle Royale game Population:One is too innovative to be dismissed as a simple Fortnite clone. You and two teammates will be dropped into a hostile environment to scavenge for weapons and supplies in order to be the last group standing. There's a wide variety of guns to use and structures to build. However, Population:One's exclusive vertical combat system is the true star of the show.
Every surface you see is climbable. This makes for intense firefights as teams scramble for the high ground advantage. From a higher position, you can use a wingsuit to fly into battles or quickly traverse the map. The whole system is a unique addition that breathes new life into the battle royale genre.
It’s impressive to see a game of this scale and design run so smoothly on the Quest 2’s mobile chip. On top of tight controls, immersive environments and a fun gameplay loop, developer BigBox VR is constantly rolling out live events to keep the game feeling fresh.

3. SuperHot VR
If you've ever imagined what it must be like to be a polygonal hitman traversing a series of stark environments, then SuperHot VR might be perfect for you. The game takes SuperHot's core mechanic of time only really moving when you move, and brings it into the virtual reality world. So when you physically duck a bullet that projectile will shift from creeping forward to pickling up pace.
SuperHot is pretty cool normally, but it feels, ironically, turbocharged in VR. Suddenly, you're in the midst of slow-motion action that feels surpassingly frenetic. You have to really consider where you are in a space and think several steps ahead to avoid a one-shot death.
It's also pretty amusing; hurling a book or even your own gun at an advancing enemy and watching them shatter is a heady mix of Jason Bourne, John Wick and Austin Powers. Just be aware it can get very engaging. And if you don't have a lot of space around you, you might find a right hook aimed at an enemy ends up pummelling a wall in the real world!

4. Beat Saber
If you threw Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, and just a sprinkle of Star Wars into a blender you'd get Beat Saber. In this game, you match the color of your saber to slash color corresponding blocks at the correct angle.
In addition to an increasing speed, there are hazards such as bombs and walls that you must physically dodge. The result is a full-body workout with a pulse-thumping EDM soundtrack. It’s an entrancing experience that could only succeed in virtual reality.
An extensive single-player career mode will challenge you for hours with increasingly specific requirements needed to beat the campaign. Free play lets you pick any song to jam out to with togglable modifiers to support or challenge you.
A novice player might turn on a bonus multiplier helper, while a sadis — I mean expert ups the challenge by limiting their game to a single mistake before failure. Recently, Beat Saber added a multiplayer update so you can compete head to head against friends to see who the most skillful swordsman is within your friend group.
Buy at Oculus for £22.99
5. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is the Quest’s first AAA single player game. This herculean effort combines a lengthy campaign, satisfying physics and realistic environments for an immersive horror experience. You’ll sneak, shoot and scavenge your way through a zombie-filled New Orleans with every major choice you make resulting in equally hefty consequences.
An advanced crafting system allows you to construct makeshift gear with a believable weight and scale. Just like real life, you’ll have to properly grip these weapons that are prone to breaking with extended use. Between degrading weapons and a restrictive stamina system, you have to decide on the best path to complete objectives. Stealthy approaches may make things more difficult as a mission plays out. On the other hand, rolling up to encounters guns blazing often leaves you weaponless against a hoard of the undead.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners strikes a balance of immersion and entertainment desperately missing from the Quest store right now. Next to the PC exclusive Half Life: Alyx, this is the best AAA VR campaign around.

6. The Climb
Sometimes you need a break from the virtual violence. That’s where Crytek’s VR game The Climb comes in. The developer that gave us Far Cry and Crysis created a stellar free-climbing simulator that trades in the pews of firearms for audible "oh wows" from its players. Realistically rendered environments courtesy of CRYENGINE give you the thrill of hanging off cliffs from the Alps to the American Southwest.
All of the game’s courses provide a steep challenge and require the use of proper gripping techniques. There are multiple paths around each ascent for you to explore with different views of vistas and valleys as a reward. Successfully completing a climb allows you to rank up and purchase new gear. Failed runs are awarded fear-inducing plunges instead.
The Climb is a breathtaking experience both visually and physically. If you’re looking for a physically challenging escape from the dreariness of the real world, chalk your hands up and grab on tight to The Climb.
Buy at Oculus for £22.99
7. Pokerstars VR
This free-to-play multiplayer casino simulation offers over a dozen stunning virtual environments. From urban Macau rooftops to medieval castles, you can play poker, blackjack and slot machines. Whether you’re playing with your Friday night poker buddies or random strangers, all of the game modes in Pokerstars VR are an absolute riot.
Each day, you’re able to spin a chip wheel every eight hours for free in-game currency that allows you to partake in gameplay. As long as you’re not playing in major competitions, you’ll never have to pay real money to sit in on a hand or two.
The longer you play at tables, the more creds you earn. Creds are different from chips and allow you to buy virtual props that range from cigars to shotguns complete with detailed interactions.
The devs went above and beyond with Pokerstars VR, including in-game daily, weekly and lifetime challenges for rewards and more than 30 unlockable achievements for completionists. For an authentic casino night out during these trying times, Pokerstars VR delivers in spades.
Free on Oculus
More in line with Rainbow Six: Siege than Call of Duty, Onward’s no-respawn 5v5 competitive gameplay requires strategic planning and extensive communication between teammates for a successful operation. Your hit count is limited and reloading requires you to physically chamber rounds for an eerily realistic military experience. Without being held back by wires, Onward shines on the Quest 2 more than on any other VR headset.
This sense of freedom gained from cutting the cord allows you to dive into cover and crouch in Onward’s dozen official maps without worry. To keep the game from feeling stale, there are legions of community-made maps. Each setting is chock full of detail and offers plenty of places to take cover during intense firefights. Under fire, your vision narrows to simulate combat stress. While this is quite immersive, interacting with all of your equipment is truly next level.
Each of the more than 40 guns in Onward require their clips to be emptied and rounds to be chambered for reloading. This means it’ll take you time to load and chamber clips into sidearms or each individual bullet into weapons like shotguns and revolvers. Your stock equipment regardless of loadout includes a health injection syringe on your waist, radio on your left shoulder and tablet on your back. These tools help you revive downed teammates and contact distant teammates too far to use proximity chat.
Buy at Oculus for £18.99
9. Topgolf with Pro Putt
Topgolf got its start as Pro Putt, the best mini golf VR game available. With varied courses, correctly weighted clubs and realistic ball trajectory, this experience was second only to actual putting greens. A recent update added a Topgolf driving bay venue with multiple clubs from irons to drivers, the ability to watch YouTube videos on surrounding walls and multiplayer support for up to seven friends.
From the main menu, you have access to a 10,000 square foot practice green, a putting career mode and multiplayer. Multiplayer modes like Cornhole and Pitch Pong are reminiscent of the arcade games included in the Tiger Woods games of the early aughts. Achievements, a ranking system and leaderboards give Topgolf endless replay value.
Fun alone or with your friends this is the best golfing experience available on Quest.
Buy at Oculus for £14.99
10. Until You Fall
Mix the challenging combat of Dark Souls with a rogue-like, and you’ll get Until You Fall. With a satisfying gameplay loop, neon aesthetic and a banging synthwave soundtrack this is the VR game we had no idea we needed. Equipped with dual-wielding weapons (sword, mace or knife) you’ll strike dodge and counter enemies to best them in battle.
Sadly a majority of your time will be spent falling in battle. Each time you die provides you with new insight and upgrades. Ranging from maximum health to damage buffs, these upgrades can turn the tides of battle in your favor. Akin to playing one last round in the Civilization series, each successful run makes it difficult to put the game down.
Difficult boss fights will undoubtedly drive you mad. Coming better prepared to a fight with improved gear and prevailing however is pure ecstasy. If you love the sweet torture of Soulsborne games, you’ll be playing Until you Fall.
Buy on Oculus for £18.99
11. Real VR Fishing
On the other end of the stress spectrum is Real VR Fishing, a great way to wind down from the hell that is Until You Fall. Surprisingly this simple fishing game is one of the best-looking Quest games thanks to the photorealistic environments and fish models. You can chill out on the water catching fish while watching YouTube videos thanks to a floating browser for pure zen.
Inviting friends to explore and fish with you makes the experience even better. Each player can customize their avatar, equipment and difficulty level that makes the experience fun for anglers and non-anglers alike. From tropical coasts to city bays, dynamic weather and events keep you immersed.
Each fish you capture can be collected in your customizable aquarium. This collection and achievements give this game a satisfying sense of progression.
Buy on Oculus for £14.99
12. Skyrim VR
Even though it’s coming up to its 10-year anniversary, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is very much a game you should try in virtual reality. You’ll need to connect the Oculus Quest 2 to a gaming PC or laptop, albeit not a hugely powerful one given the game’s age. And it’s not superbly optimized for cutting-edge VR use. However, Skyrim VR basically lets you step into a virtual country with a fantasy and Nordic flavor.
While Skyrim is available on all manner of platforms, VR is arguably one of the newer and more interesting ways to experience the stellar open-world game. It also mixes up the playstyle of the game, with ‘realistic’ controls letting you slash away at draugrs and dragons by actually swinging your arm. And even with dated graphics by 2021 standards, there are still moments where Skyrim's art style and lighting that present you with some beautiful vistas; perfect escapism from the rigours of real life. There is also mod support through the Steam Workshop, which adds yet another arrow into Skyrim's brimming quiver.

It’s safe to say that Oculus Quest came out of the gates swinging. That makes picking a list of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games pretty tough.
Facebook’s standalone VR headsets, which seem to have singlehandedly reignited the entire VR industry, launched with over 50 apps in 2019. In the year that’s followed it’s cherry-picked a steady stream of other greatest hits to bring to an entirely new audience and, since the launch of Quest 2 in 2020, doubled down on new content too. The result is a platform that has a tightly curated list of fantastic VR experiences that are easy to discover.
Also keep in mind that, while our best PSVR, Rift and Steam VR games lists are all fairly consistent, we approach our Quest list with a bit of a different lens. We have to weigh up how much the wire-free gameplay improves the experience against how well a game has been ported and its technical performance. You’ll see a lot of different changes in this list, then.
But which are our favorites? (Don’t forget to check our list of the best games to sideload on Quest via SideQuest, and if you’re looking to join a friend in VR be sure to check out our list of best multiplayer games on Quest!)
What Are The Best Oculus Quest Games And Best Oculus Quest 2 Games?
We’ve gone deep into the Quest library to come up with our updated list of the 25 best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games. Quest already spans a diverse number of genres, offering everything from accessible entry points to blockbuster titans.
If you’re looking to build out your library, you need to start here.
25. Carve Snowboarding – Read Our Review
Snowboarding, just like many other sports, is really hard to pull off in VR. With no way to track your feet on Quest, you lose a lot of the context needed to really feel like you’re actually hitting the slopes. While it isn’t perfect, Carve Snowboarding does a really good job of switching out your feet for your hand, with a control scheme that takes a while to master.
Once you do, though, Carve Snowboarding quickly becomes one of the best Oculus Quest games, with heart-stopping tricks and an incredibly satisfying sense of speed. It could do with a touch more content, but this is VR’s best extreme sports game yet.
24. Cosmodread – Read Our Review
Alright hands up, heroes – who is brave enough to tackle Cosmodread? Because we’ll warn you now, this one doesn’t pull its punches. The developer of Dreadhalls returns to expand upon the original procedurally generated horror game in an all-new spaceship setting. Can you get out alive?
Cosmodread is a deviously tight mix of shadowy corridors, creepy crawlies scuttering in the dark, an ominous creaking off in the distance. All of these tricks are powerfully potent in VR, but the game’s roguelite approach is a real winner too.
23. Red Matter – Read Our Review
Broadly speaking, many developers have done a pretty good job bringing their PC and console VR games to Quest. No one has pulled it off quite as well as Red Matter, though, which absolutely shines on the platform. In this intriguing adventure-mystery, you journey to an alien planet to investigate an abandoned enemy base in the midst of a Cold War-style sci-fi conflict.
But developer Vertical Robot puts immersion above all else, making for an experience you can truly lose yourself in. Red Matter isn’t just the best looking game on the platform, it’s also one of the very best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
22. In Death: Unchained – Read Our Review
A lot of VR games are fun, but a little on the forgiving side. In Death: Unchained is definitely not guilty of that crime; this grueling roguelike action game is likely the toughest title on the platform and that’s very much one of its strengths.
In In Death, you fight your way through procedurally-generated levels with either a bow and arrow or crossbow, dodging incoming fire from enemy archers and attempting to put down monsters before they reach you. Gradual progression and the promise of a new run every time make this an addictive experience you won’t want to put down. Best train up your arrow arm for one of the best Oculus Quest games, then.
21. Five Nights At Freddy’s VR – Read Our Review
Ever wanted to give yourself a heart attack? Firstly, what’s wrong with you? Second, Five Nights At Freddy’s VR is the closest you’ll get to that experience in the comfort of your own home. Most VR horror games try to be at least a little cautious with their jump scares so that people can actually play them. FNAF has no such interest in any consideration.
Across several minigames that include content from past games and new experiences, you’ll try to survive against a haunting army of abandoned animatronics, trying to keep tabs on them as they stalk you and trying to fix things without being eaten (wait, do they eat you?). If you’re looking for the ultimate VR scarefest, you can’t go wrong with this house of horrors, making it one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
20. I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy And The Liar – Read Our Review
Why isn’t Schell’s classic VR puzzle game, I Expect You To Die, included in this list? Simple, because it just got an even better sequel. Yup, another six levels of death-defying brain teasers await in a game that makes a more concerted effort to deliver a memorable story.
There are tons of VR escape rooms out there, but I Expect You To Die 2 stands out thanks to its thoughtful approach to VR interactions and world-building that knows when to be consistent with our reality and when to cheat its rules. This sequel is one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games, but you should definitely check out the first game in the series too.
19. Star Wars: Vader Immortal Trilogy – Read Our Review
Vader Immortal isn’t a massive, multi-hour Star Wars epic with upgradable skills and deep combat. It is, by traditional gaming standards, a pretty slim package, lasting a little over 90 minutes. But look below the surface and you’ll find something much more interesting; an episodic series that wants to provide a completely immersive VR experience that anyone can enjoy.
There’s fun lightsaber combat to be had both in the story and the excellent Dojo mode, but Vader Immortal’s best moments come from basking in the presence of the Dark Lord himself and meeting other characters in VR. It’s an exercise in story-living and a pretty good one at that.
18. Larcenauts – Read Our Review
Though it suffered from some launch hiccups, Larcenauts bounced back to offer one of VR’s deepest multiplayer shooters. In this Overwatch-inspired take, you select from one of a range of incredibly different classes (or specialists) and enter into one of three game modes, including a standard team deathmatch and takes on control point and capture the flag types.
What makes Larcenauts sing is its variety, which helps you identify genuine strategies in play. If your team’s missing a heavy hitter in a firefight, you’ll know exactly who needs to enter the fray, whilst faster classes are essential when racing to secure points on a map. It’s this depth that makes Larcenauts one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
17. Walkabout Mini Golf
Unlike snowboarding, mini golf is actually something that could and should work quite well in VR. Walkabout Minigolf is all the proof you need; it’s an accurate representation of the game that goes beyond what’s possible in real life whilst also remaining authentic throughout.
This ticks all the boxes – plenty of courses, extensive multiplayer support, different themes for each level and, above all, pinpoint physics that are almost indistinguishable from the real thing. Hard to fault!
16. Sniper Elite VR – Read Our Review
Looking for a rock-solid shooter campaign that makes great use of VR controllers? Sniper Elite VR more than has you covered. A lengthy 5+ hour campaign awaits here that mixes many of the series staples: cohesive and enjoyable stealth, thrilling all-out fire fights and, of course, some of the best sniping you’ll find in games.
Holding your hands steady, squeezing the trigger and the pulling back the action for the next round feels incredible, and the game’s got a range of options to find a playstyle that works for you. Here’s hoping Rebellion has a sequel on the cards for the future, because Sniper Elite VR is comfortably one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
15. Until You Fall – Read Our Review
A stylish and effortlessly-cool VR rougelike that has you tackling runs of a randomized dungeon and starting fresh every time you die. A fast-moving progression system keeps the game rewarding and addictive, while the lively arcade action is easy to pick up and difficult to master. If you’re looking for a VR game you’ll revisit time and time again, look no further than Until You Fall. It’s one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
14. The Room VR: A Dark Matter – Read Our Review
Puzzle masters Fireproof Games knock it out of the park again with a typically excellent rendition of The Room series, this time for VR headsets. This short, sweet adventure is set in the British Institute of Archaeology, where you’ll solve challenging trials in search of a missing archaeologist.
What makes The Room VR work is its commitment to the platform it’s appearing on. This isn’t just a bunch of puzzles that would be just as well-served on a traditional screen; each and every one has been thoughtfully invented with VR at its core. That makes it easily one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games, especially if you’re into puzzles.
13. Population: One – Read Our Review
VR does Fortnite right in this superb battle royale shooter. Population: One takes place on a huge map in which teams of three battle it out to be the last ones standing. Choose where to drop, scavenge for supplies and make sure to stay in safe zones as you fight to survive.
Not only is Population: One a rock-solid shooter, but it’s got some great VR mechanics too, like scaling up walls with your hands or holding your arms out to glide when you leap off the side of a building. It can be an intense experience that certainly won’t be for everyone but, if you’re looking to get your online shooter fix in VR, this is your best bet. Throw in full cross-play support and Population: One quickly climbs the chart of the best Oculus Quest games.
12. Moss – Read Our Review
Moss is one of a handful of 2018 games that proved that third-person VR experiences don’t just work but can make for some of the absolute best content out on the platform right now. You guide an adorable little mouse named Quill through diorama-sized levels, solving puzzles and taking on fearsome critters in sword-based combat.
While it’s mechanically refined, Moss’ real claim to fame is the bond you build with Quill over the course of the adventure. Playing as a larger companion to the tiny protagonist, you really start to connect with her as you work together to overcome obstacles. It feels very much like a team effort, which is quite a remarkable feeling in itself. Moss is easily one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games – bring on Book 2.
11. Eleven: Table Tennis
If you want the most accurate, authentic representation of a sport in VR today, Eleven: Table Tennis is easily your best bet. This simulation-level game offers the most convincing take on a sport that makes perfect sense in VR. Whether you’re serving up hotshots or getting in desperate returns, Eleven’s physics behave exactly the way you’d expect and tapping the ball with your controller starts to feel as natural as if it were a paddle. More than just a great game, Eleven is one of the rare VR experiences that feels like a genuine replacement for our reality. It’s that good and one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
10. A Township Tale – Read Our Review
Fair warning when it comes to A Township Tale: the game is categorically unfinished. I mean that literally; developer Alta is still plugging away adding new components to the experience and fixing bugs as we speak. Be warned that you won’t have the smoothest experience with this open-world online adventure/survival game, then. But if you can overlook at, you’re in for something special.
A Township Tale is incredibly detailed, asking players to build out a town by collecting resources, fending off enemies and building better gear that will allow you to venture out further into its world. Almost all of its interactions are incredibly considered and, though it’s hard to learn, the game’s fostered an impressive community of passionate players to teach you. There’s still a ways to go, but it’s already clear that A Township Tale is one of the best Oculus Quest games.
9. Beat Saber – Read Our Review
VR’s poster child finds its most natural fit on Quest. In Beat Saber, you slash notes to a beat, dodge obstacles and try to master an ever-growing list of fantastic tracks.
Wire-free gameplay breaks down the barriers between you and the music as you slice your way through an ever-growing list of tracks. Beat Saber is empowering, energetic and VR’s most devilishly addictive game yet. Don’t expect that status to change any time soon. You probably already knew that Beat Saber one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
8. A Fisherman’s Tale – Read Our Review
As great as VR is, its initial novelty is bound to wear off after your first few weeks or so. If you want to recapture the magic of putting on the headset for the first time, though, there’s one destination that’s bound to deliver: A Fisherman’s Tale. This is a mind-bending puzzle game unlike anything you’ll see elsewhere. That alone makes it one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
In A Fisherman’s Tale, you solve intricate, scale-based puzzles in which you work… with yourself. Its best puzzles utilize a miniature model of the lighthouse the game’s set in. Lift the roof of the model and you’ll see a mini-you, imitating your every move. Just try and keep your brain from breaking as you hand yourself giant objects, or reach down to poke your own head. It’s a trip to say the least. Throw in a poignant story about self-acceptance and you have a short, sharp VR game that will stay with you much longer than most multi-hour epics.
7. Onward – Read Our Review
Whereas Onward on PC is a worthy contender for the best online shooter, it definitely faces stiff competition. But, on Quest, the wire-free gameplay really comes into its own, opening up new tactics like easily going prone. Yes, the game’s suffered visually to get onto the headset, but when you’re aiming down your sights, scanning for targets, you won’t notice.
Onward pays close attention to realism, making it a game that can be hard to get to grips with, but absolutely rewarding to master. For that reason, it’s one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
6. Ghost Giant – Read Our Review
Upon first glance, Ghost Giant appears to be a charming little puzzler that makes the most of diorama-sized worlds. And that’s very much the case; in this adorable papercraft world you help your young companion out with different chores and tasks. That includes tickling clams and making intentive art in wonderfully tranquil locations. It’s whimsy, delightful and amazing in VR. But that’s only half the story.
Ghost Giant also hides a thoughtful take on depression, smartly communicated through this new medium. The game uses intimacy, scale and connection in engaging ways that bring you closer to the world and characters around you. It’s surprising and responsible, delivering some incredibly powerful moments. All told, it’s one of the most striking and unforgettable examples of VR storytelling yet seen and one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
5. Pistol Whip – Read Our Review
Pistol Whip may be the new kid on the block but, for our money, its sharpshooting, sharp sounding, beat-based gameplay proves to be even more hypnotic than Beat Saber. In others words, it’s easily one of the best Oculus Quest games. In this neon-lit shooter, you stream down corridors, blasting bad guys to grizzly tunes, avoiding incoming fire and trying to rack up the best scores.
Pistol Whip’s key is to take influence not just from the VR sales king but also Superhot and, most prominently, John Wick. Whereas Beat Saber wants to make you a dancing Jedi master, Pistol Whip aims to teach you gun-fu with style, elegantly fusing the rhythmic and cinematic together a pulsating, vibrant monster of its own.
4. Echo VR – Read Our Review
Though we’d love to see Lone Echo itself come to Quest, Echo VR is a thrilling addition to the library all on its own. In this multiplayer zero-gravity game, you take part in futuristic esports, throwing discs to score points on a team. The movement is fast, fluid and entirely natural.
Though we don’t have the excellent Echo Combat expansion here (yet), Echo VR had stood the test of time as a multiplayer game with a growing community that was naturally conceived for the platform. To us, that’s far more important than trying to cram a genre everyone wants to see in VR onto the platform with mixed results. This is one of the immersive VR experiences and one of the best Oculus Quest games and best Oculus Quest 2 games.
3. Demeo – Read Our Review
Demeo isn’t a perfect tabletop game by any means. But it is a really good one and, more importantly, its first-rate four-player multiplayer VR experience makes it feel like a genuine social event in a way that no flatscreen game — and even few VR games — have ever really matched.
You pick a class and tackle randomly generated dungeons, but the game’s punishing difficulty means sessions can last anywhere from a few minutes to multiple hours. Demeo is already cemented as one of the best Oculus Quest games but, with more content on the way, including new dungeons and features, it’s only going to get better.
2. Superhot VR – Read Our Review
Superhot VR is one of the oldest games on this list and yet, over four years later, it’s still easily one of the best examples of how VR can give us entirely new gaming experiences. In this cinematic shooter, times moves only when you do. Sit still and the world around you will freeze, but move your body and it will jolt back to life. It’s your very own Matrix simulator.
What makes the game such an enduring hit is its accessible design that instantly picks up on a professional slickness you won’t find anywhere else in VR. From last-minute gun grabs to well-placed knife throws, the game constantly delivers unprecedented satisfaction with its action. Superhot VR is and always will be one of the best Oculus Quest games – surely we’re way past due for a sequel?
1. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Read Our Review
We would have never pegged a game based upon The Walking Dead to carry arguably the best design and user-interaction you’ll find in VR, but Saints & Sinners delivers all that and then some. This sets the bar not just for VR zombie games but basically the entire medium with ridiculously entertaining physics-based combat that has you wrestling with hordes of undead, throwing every ounce of effort you can muster into every swing and stab.
But this isn’t just a silly sandbox or wave-based survival game (though it has that too). Saints & Sinners packs its action into a full, meaty VR campaign that sees you trekking through the remains of New Orleans. Add in human enemies, side-missions and the ability to kill zombies with a spoon, and you have one of the deepest native VR games on the market. Plus, thanks to an obscenely good port from developer Skydance Interactive, Saints & Sinners takes the throne at the top of our best Oculus Quest games list.
