The Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best VR headsets on the market. It is a stand-alone device that allows players to experience virtual reality games in total immersion. The Quest 2’s ability to make you feel like you are in a digital world is truly something everyone should experience. Here is a list of some of the best Oculus Quest 2 games available on the market.
You may have read that the VR market lacks a “killer app” that makes owning your own VR headset worthwhile. This was certainly true when VR headsets first hit the market. Nowadays there are many amazing games that you can play in virtual reality.
Below is a list of some of the best VR games that should be on your list if you already have a Quest 2 or plan to purchase one of these great real word simulators soon.
1. Beat the saber
If you have a VR headset and haven’t tried Beat the saber yet, you are missing something. This VR rhythm game is one of the most popular titles on all VR platforms. It’s also one of the most active games for the Oculus Quest 2, and can double as a cardio workout if you want to.
The base game includes a collection of custom songs explicitly recorded for Beat Saber. However, Beat Games does offer a selection of content packs from major groups like Billie Eilish, Linkin Park, and Timbaland.
2. Population: One
If you are a fan of multiplayer battle royale games like Apex Legends and Fortnite then Population: One is the game for you. It is a team shooter game with air combat elements. Each player is given a wingsuit and a jetpack to propel them wherever they want, meaning you not only have to keep an eye on the ground but also the air above you at all times.
People: One is an action packed title with excellent gameplay that is sure to keep you entertained.
3. Pistol whip
Whisk Gun is another great example of a VR game that can help you get in shape. The bullet dodging elements will have you doing squats without even realizing it.
In this title, you won’t be swinging lightsabers at boxes like in Beat Saber. Instead, you’ll wield a gun and have to fight for your virtual life. To maximize your score, you will need to time your relaxation to the beat of the background soundtrack.
4. Super Hot VR
SuperHot was a traditional console and PC game before it was a VR game. When VR headsets hit the market, the developer quickly realized that SuperHot worked great in VR.
This first person shooter game uses a unique mechanic where your movement controls time in the game. If you stop, time stops, and the faster you go, the faster time goes. With the element of time control, Super hot VR becomes a puzzle game as well as a shooting game.
5. Resident Evil 4
Capcom has remade one of its classics, Resident Evil 4, in a virtual reality title exclusively for the Oculus Quest 2. The VR version of the game gives you a first-person window into the gruesome world of RE4, and critics say it’s even Better than the original.
For franchise veterans, know that the remake includes everything you remember from the original release, but this time from a more immersive first-person perspective to maximize terror. Newcomers to the series will be in for a wild ride with this game.
6. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is one of the most critically acclaimed games to honor the Oculus Quest platform. The developers behind Saints & Sinners have gone to incredible lengths to create interaction mechanics that complement VR inputs.
The physics-based combat system allows for some of the most entertaining fights you could hope to have in a VR game. Fans of the Walking Dead franchise should check out this game, but this game is worth it even if you are not actively following the series.
7. Vader Immortal Star Wars
Star Wars fans shouldn’t miss the Incredible Immortal Vader Series, designed exclusively for Oculus Quest headsets. This three-part VR experience series immerses you in the heart of the Star Wars universe with neutral, Republican, and Imperial perspectives.
Live the life of a smuggler in Episode I, train under the wing of Darth Vader in Episode II, then lead an assault on Vader’s Fortress in Episode III.
8. Half-life: Alyx
Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx, available only on To smoke, does not work directly on Quest 2 headset. But if you have a powerful gaming PC, you can plug in your headset with Oculus Link cable or use WiFi to stream PC VR games to your headset.
Alyx is a must-have game for anyone who has played any of the previous Half-Life titles and anyone who wants the most immersive VR gaming experience yet.
