With Oculus Rift releasing this week, the age of VR is finally upon us: it’s real, it’s incredible, and it’s going to be massive. Should you be lucky enough to get your hands on the first wave of consumer headsets, we’ve compiled a list of the best VR games you’ve simply got to try.
And if you haven’t managed to get your head around virtual reality just yet, never fear – these games will all be waiting for you to jump in (quite literally!) once you do. Without further ado, here’s our top 10 VR games you’ve got to play.
10. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
If you’re a follower of our Wife Lessons video series, then you’ll have seen Diggy and Jenna play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes (although the non-VR version). Essentially a co-operative multiplayer, it’s one person’s job to disarm a bomb whilst the other guides them through it with the use of an instruction manual. It sounds easy, right? Since neither player can see what the other one sees, it requires a lot of teamwork and patience to avoid blowing yourselves up. And thanks to VR, that bomb blast is going to scare the living daylights out of you, we promise.
9. The Talos Principle
When we reviewed The Talos Principle last year, we cited it as quite possibly the best puzzle game we’d ever played. Asking the meaning of life and teasing you to question everything you know, The Talos Principle fuses logic and philosophy for perhaps the biggest workout your brain has had since the heyday of Brain Training games.
The VR version takes you right inside the game, forcing you to get even deeper involved in having your beliefs challenged. It’s certainly not one to miss.
