As virtual reality (VR) gaming continued to arise during state-issued stay-at-home orders, many games have come into and fallen out of the spotlight. The next section of our article focuses on the games we have personally played. These games have held a spot in our hearts.
10 VR Games That Will Always Be Our Favorites:
1. Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners
In this survival, adventure game you get to play as one of the last remaining humans on earth. As you battle herds of zombies and explore the open world you can gather clues, craft, and change the story within the game based on your own decisions, are you a saint or a sinner? With realistic real-world mechanics that put you into the heart of the game, you feel like you’re really in the thrilling world of The Walking Dead. Choose your own path and survive in this new apocalyptic adventure. (Elizabeth Y.)
2. No Man’s Sky
This game is interesting because of its unlimited worlds you can explore. The tasks are tedious because of the material you collect and the amount of time it takes to get to your destination, but that is what makes it more enjoyable because you can discover something new on every planet you visit. (Jacqueline)
3. Batman VR Game
When the game first dropped it was epic which was giving us a Batman first point of view game. The game gives you chills and the experience of the world’s greatest detective but due to having a short story, it wasn’t memorable enough like the other Arkham games. (Jesus G.)
4/5. Job/Vacation Simulator
This game is fun for young children. This is fun, but once you play all the levels, you kinda lose interest in it and there is no point in replaying it again. (Esli F.)
6. Minecraft VR
It’s fun to play with friends and mess around in creative or survival. Play normal Minecraft but in virtual reality. (Esli F.)
Phasmophobia is a great game to practice your ghost hunting skills as it is very intense and suspenseful. You are able to play with three other people and communicate through proximity chat with each other to strategize the best plan to identify the type of ghost you are dealing with. (Andres G.)
8. Tilt Brush (different versions)
This was one of the first VR programs/games to come out and it holds a special place in my heart. While it doesn’t exist anymore, there are still many ports available online via sidequest or other sites/ resources that will allow users to play with this simple yet enticing experience. I urge you to check out the game to allow your creativity to run wild as you can, create whatever you think is possible in a new way to paint. (Elizabeth Y.)
9. The Climb
Even though The Climb was a fun experience, the game used to help those who love to hike and give the players the experience. But at the same time, the game didn’t maintain its popularity. It is quite rare to see YouTubers and streamers playing this game anymore. (Jesus G.)
10. Lucky’s Tale
Lucky’s Tale is a game similar to moss where you move the fox character lucky in 3rd person overlooking him as if he were a piece in a board game. Help him solve puzzles and defeat enemies in this very cute seated vr game that’s fun for people of all ages. (Elizabeth Y.)
Although virtual reality is extremely advanced for today’s standards over time those experiences in VR can be enhanced for the future generations. The future of VR is incredibly bright with the innovative technologies rapidly advancing, the uses of VR have multiplied. VR has brought real experiences to safe environments. VR has been used in multiple real world jobs; Medical Professionals have used a VR simulation to perform surgeries, while Police Cadets have used VR to imitate arrests and hostage situations. While we live in a present time where VR has taken over the world, the future of VR is immensely momentous and absolutely mind boggling.
