Picking out the best Oculus Quest 2 games depends heavily on the type of games users want to play. And bear in mind that might change a good bit when users have all the action strapped right up.
The best Oculus Quest 2 games right now
- Half-Life: Alyx
If ever there was a game player wanted to use to show off what experiences virtual reality can really provide, then half-Life: Alyx is the game you where they 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 amount of copies.
Despite its pretentious style, Oculus’s exclusive VR Battle Royale game Population:
One is too innovative to be dismissed as a simple Fortnite clone. The player and two teammates will be dropped into a hostile environment to scavenge for weapons and supplies in order to be the last group standing.
- SuperHot VR
If users have 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 them. SuperHot is pretty cool normally, but it feels, ironically, turbocharged in VR. Suddenly, user’re in the midst of slow-motion action that feels surpassingly furious.
- Beat Saber
If a player throws Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, and just a sprinkle of Star Wars into a blender they get Beat Saber.
An amateur player might turn on a bonus multiplier helper, while a sadis(expert) increases the challenge by limiting their game to a single mistake before failure.
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is the Quest’s first AAA single player game. Players will sneak, shoot and scavenge their way through a zombie-filled New Orleans with every major choice user make resulting in equally hefty consequences.
- The Climb
Sometimes players need a break from the virtual violence. That’s where Crytek’s VR game The Climb comes in. Realistically rendered environments courtesy of CRYENGINE give players the thrill of hanging off cliffs from the Alps to the American Southwest.
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.
- Until user Fall
Mix the challenging combat of Dark Souls with a rogue-like, and the player will get Until user Fall. With a satisfying gameplay loop, neon aesthetic and a banging synthwave soundtrack this is the VR game we had no idea we needed.
- Resident Evil 4 VR
A highlight in the zombie-centric series, Resident Evil 4 is not playable on the Oculus Quest 2; in fact, it’s arguably the best reason to buy an Oculus Quest 2.
While it won’t blow users away on the visuals front, simply playing the game in virtual reality offers a degree of immersion that’s difficult to get anywhere else.
- Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020)
If users have an Oculus Link cable for Quest 2, then 2020’s iteration of Microsoft Flight Simulator is a game to try out in virtual reality.
Not only has it been praised for its high levels of realism, but it’s also a gorgeous game with a very large range of aircraft to pilot across the globe.
