Virtual reality (VR) has come a long way in the past year or two. In the beginning, most games available for VR were largely just fancy tech demos that lasted a few hours at most. But these days, there are some virtual reality games that prove how powerful VR gaming can be. Even though there are many amazing VR games, the following three games should appeal to anyone.
Beat Saber is the uncontested number one game release for VR this year. It has been a massive financial success relative to other virtual reality games, and it has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from players. In case you are not already aware, Beat Saber is a music-and rhythm-based game.
While there are other rhythm games available for VR, Beat Saber is undeniably the best implementation of the genre to date. In Beat Saber, you get one red and one blue lightsaber. You are tasked with slicing through red and blue boxes with arrows indicating which of eight different directions you need to swing your saber.
But one of the biggest selling points of Beat Saber is the huge modding community. Because of mods, Beat Saber has a potentially unending amount of songs and customizations for you to experience. Beat Saber is a fun game anyone should try if they haven’t already.
By this time, most people have already experienced Skyrim in one form or another. Skyrim originally released way back in 2011, and it has since been ported over to just about every gaming platform in existence. Even with that stipulation, Skyrim VR is well worth your time. Skyrim VR gives you an entirely different perspective on the game.
Viewing the different landscapes, and having a fearsome dragon towering over you is difficult to experience anywhere else. The sensation of being in the world of Skyrim rather than looking at Skyrim through a TV is a game changer. Whether you have played the game in the past or you have never stepped foot into that world, Skyrim VR is sure to be an experience you won’t soon forget.
The final game on this list is Pavlov VR. Everyone who plays video games is familiar with the first person shooter genre. Whether it be from playing Call of Duty, Rainbow Six, Counter-Strike, or one of the many other first-person shooter games, just about everyone has some experience with the genre.
However, Pavlov VR is entirely different than what most people think of like a first-person shooter. Instead of pressing buttons to do things such as aiming, reloading, crouching and throwing grenades, you have to physically do those things with your body. There is no game that makes you feel like a real soldier in the heat of battle quite like Pavlov VR. So, if you are looking to take your first-person shooter skills to the next level, Pavlov VR is the most adrenaline-fueled way to do it.
These are three of the best virtual reality games to buy this year. Whether you choose one, or all three, you will not feel disappointed. There’s no doubt more great VR games will follow, so keep your eyes open for the newest ones out there.
