VR is on the rise. Even though the Oculus Rift headset hasn’t been finished and commercially sold yet, it is still a dazzling experience if you’ve tried it. Here are some of the best games out there you can play with the headset. So read on and find out.
5. Euro Truck Simulator 2
This is one of the three games on our list that have native Oculus Rift and VR support. Though the game is not the most ‘action packed’ game out there, if you have any soft spot for Simulation games, then this is a great one. If you use the Oculus Rift with it, not only will you get a first person experience of how a truck looks and works like from the inside, but you’ll also get a real feel of the road, provided you have a force feedback wheel. Another perk of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is that, you can peep out from the window and reverse and drop off cargo like in real life.
After Facebook occupied Oculus Rift for $2 Billion, Markus Alexej “Notch” Persson, announced that Minecraft will not be officially getting support for the Oculus Rift. However, when has any thing like that stopped modders? There is a mod, conveniently name Minecrift which allows you to do exactly what you wanted. Theres just something about exploring a life sized version of The Mines of Moria from The Lord Of The Rings that just can’t be explained in words.
3. Half Life 2
Valve added VR support to HL2 soon after it became a mainstream thing. Even though the character movement in the game makes most people feel motion sick, the game is still enjoyable, mostly being nostalgic. We can only hope that HL3 will have proper VR support from the get go.
2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The World of Skyrim is massive and immersive in its own unique way. There aren’t a lot of games that can be enjoyable even after you’ve finished the main story line. Not to mention the uncountable and powerful mods that make the game something quite different from what the developers imagined. Its disappointing that the game doesn’t officially support the Oculus Rift, but don’t worry, because there is tool called Perception which allows VR support.
A notable mention, not a full sized game though. Still, it would be really fun to try if you already have the Oculus Rift.
Slender: The Arrival
You can’t have first person VR games without at least one horror game, right? So why not give a go to this native supported Horror game?
1. Team Fortress 2
TF2 is one of the best First Person games which have native support for the Oculus Rift. The fact that it is already Free to Play and has been tuned to the Oculus Rift, to prevent Motion Sickness, is the icing on the cake. There is also a detailed tutorial and guide for you to read if you have any problems setting up the Rift with TF2.
Well, we hope you enjoyed reading this list. What are you waiting for? If you have the Oculus Rift, then try these games. If you don’t, then get it!
