Oculus Rift

‘Dirt Rally VR’

You can get a taste of VR driving in Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation VR, but if you want to experience a full racing game from a headset, you’ll want to pick up Dirt Rally. Available both as a component of the Steam release as well as a standalone game via the Oculus store, Dirty Rally VR takes all of the game’s modes and makes them compatible with the rift. The game features both single-player and multiplayer, and a variety of outdoor locations to view as you race and attempt not to crash your vehicle.


‘Lucky’s Tale’

Classic 3D platforming games are a rarity these days, and it’s even rarer to see them in virtual reality. Lucky’s Tale checks both boxes, with plenty of collectibles and challenging jumps, as well as the additional camera control provided by the Oculus Rift. Lucky is an adorable mascot, bringing back memories of heroes like Banjo-Kazooie. Lucky’s Tale is free if you own the headset, and if you decide you really love the game, a non-VR version called Super Lucky’s Tale is also available on Xbox One and PC.


‘Edge of Nowhere’

For something a little bit darker in third-person perspective, Insomniac Games has you covered with Edge of Nowhere. A horror game that blends together natural terrors – like certain death after falling off an ice cliff – with fears a little more rooted in fantasy, it’s another example of Insomniac’s masterful storytelling. Edge of Nowhere is certainly less cartoonish than the other games we’ve seen from the company, but it combines gameplay and narrative together in a way that is just as compelling.


‘Rock Band VR’

Playing guitar but wishing there were a few more fans – or a fan – to cheer you on? With Rock Band VR, you can live out the fantasy of being a rock star with an adoring audience jamming along to your tunes. Using an Oculus Touch or a Rock Band 4 controller, you can play along like a classic Rock Band game or improvise and experiment, all while standing on a virtual stage. Unlike real life, the club you’re playing doesn’t smell like stale sweat, either.


‘The Climb’


Developed by Crytek – the company behind technically stunning games like Crysis The Climb allows you to experience all the thrills of mountain climbing without the risk of dying if you manage to slip. Its filled with shortcuts for more adventurous players, supports multiplayer, and it even has a “tourist mode” so your friends can try it out without having to master all of its mechanics.
