Best games on Oculus Quest
is , And there . But the current headset just seems to be better. Sure, the processor onboard is relatively old … but Facebook’s standalone VR headset can look great to watch and watch games.
Despite being present in a company-controlled walled garden, Quest is turning into quite a destination for the best VR games (though to use like the top VR games), You’ll need to plug in a gaming PC with a USB cable), and even the hits keep coming in the last few months. If you bought one, you should get these games without a doubt. I will keep updating this list over time, but if you are just starting out or looking for new great games, these are my favorites of the moment.
This is Oculus Quest’s killer app, and if you want to get ahead, want Lightsabers, or just a fun dance challenge, this is it. There are plenty of tracks to keep you busy, LightBeser tracking is fantastic, and additional music packs to buy if you feel compelled. I am currently trying to defeat my nephew’s high score.
DIsney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has closed, but ILM’s three-part game feels like a movie or theme park ride. Keep in mind, there are three parts, each sold separately. The entire experience is about two hours, but beyond the impressively designed storyline (combining Darth Vader and an ancient temple), there are dojo-style lightsaber fight modes where you can slash forever. (By the way, a new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge-themed VR game is coming this fall as well.)

Bullet time, grab the gun, wait – the faster you move, the faster everything moves. Now understand The first game from Superhot that hits Quest, and it’s still amazing. Runner-up pick: Pistol Whip. (Sorry, I still like Superhot more.)
For fun labs
Seriously, ping-pong is very good in VR. Table physics, the size of the playing area, the way VR matches what you absolutely need – who knows? You can play online with real people, and the gameplay is shocking.
Fire fighting game
If you’re ready to take a creepy dive into mysterious puzzle boxes, this all-new VR game from the makers of the hit game series called The Room is a fantastic and scary mental challenge (it’s not great for kids, though). There are plenty of escape room games on Quest, including the excellent I Expect You to Die from Adventure Labs, and the ticketed live multiplayer escape room experience.

One of the best games of 2018 was the synthetic Tetris effect and the Quest version was mostly good. It is intense, the music is amazing, and even though the levels are frantic, it is strangely Zen as well. This is the perfect way to relax.

Oculus’ zero-gravity Ultimate Frisbee game is a relentless three-in-three experience that gave me Rocket League vibes, but V.R. The controls, which rely on your hands to catapult around, are superb. The open beta is free right now, and it’s great. But defeat is expected.
Moss is about a small mouse carrying a sword that sets out on a quest. You will follow him through the levels that feel that dioramas you can peer down. Walking around and exploring the beautiful world is half the fun, but the game itself is also fantastic and plays like a console platform, but in 3D.
As with other people in your household, VR can be a solitary disconnect. Talking involves engaging others. People in VR do not know how to handle bomb-defusing manuals while in VR the person tries to communicate and stop the bomb on time. It sounds like a weird board game, something most VR games never succeed.
An endless and haphazard set of castle enemies meet each time you play, and this Rugualike game uses bows and arrows as your only navigation and mode of attack. The mechanics sound great, and being surrounded by enemies that you are firing sharp arrows can be incredibly intense.
If you miss miniature golf (or actual golf), Pro Putt’s courses feel like a great stand-in. The courses are cartoonists, but the mini-golfs are not crazy. The put realism is surprisingly good. I find the whole thing a bit meditative.
Talk about a game that never feels outdated: While Space Pirate Trainer has been around since the days of the launch of the HTC Vive, the simple arcade design is perfect. You stand still, shoot at the aliens and shield yourself. Survive as long as you can. This is perfect.
