10 great games to play on your new 2020 VR headset


#If you received a virtual reality gaming headset this holiday season, congratulations! #Whether you’ve got the newly released #Oculus #Quest 2, one of the last few units of the now discontinued #Oculus #Rift S, or another headset like the #PlayStation VR, there are a ton of video games for you to explore with your new head mount display. #Here are ten games I personally enjoy and think are worth your time and money.

#We’ve rounded up our favorite and most-used games, apps, and entertainment. #Check out our app picks for iPhones, #Android phones, #Windows PCs, and M1-equipped #Macs; our favorite mobile games from #Apple #Arcade and #Google #Play #Pass; and our top choices for gaming PCs, the PS5, #Xbox #One and #Series X / S, #Nintendo #Switch, and VR. #We’ve also listed our favorite streaming shows on #Disney #Plus, #Hulu, ESPN #Plus, and #Netflix; some great sci-fi books; and exciting new podcasts. (#Note: pricing was accurate at the time of publishing but may change.)

#Yeah, it’s not #Half-Life 3. #But the fact that #Half-Life: #Alyx even exists is truly a blessing and is a great addition to the #Half-Life franchise. #Set five years after the events of #Half-Life 2, you control #Alyx, who is tasked with taking a super weapon that belongs to an alien empire.

#When I was a little girl, I always wanted to pilot an X-Wing. I thought it was so cool to be soaring through space and blasting #Tie #Fighters out of the sky. #So when EA announced that #Star #Wars: #Squadrons would have VR support, I knew I could finally fulfill my childhood dream.

#It’s a very difficult game, and you don’t need a VR headset to play. #But it’s also a very rewarding game that fully immersed me when I strapped on a virtual reality headset.

#Real VR #Fishing

#When I was growing up on the eastern shore of #Maryland, fishing was (and is) a very popular activity in the summer. There’s something great about casting your line with a cold drink in hand while on the water, and the challenge and patience it takes to reel in a fish. #Now that it is winter, I needed something to fill the void until the warmer season returns once again, and #Real VR #Fishing does not disappoint.

#Void #Racer: #Extreme

#Void #Racer: #Extreme is a sci-fi racing game that gives me the same adrenaline rush that I get from games like #Wipeout or #Sprint #Vector and combines it with an aesthetic like that seen in the film #Tron. #If you are looking for a fast-paced racing game and love sci-fi vibes, this is the game for you.

#Sure, there are no true PS5 games released yet, but the #PlayStation VR still has a solid library of PS4 titles that you can check out, including #Media #Molecule’s 2020 game creation title #Dreams. #It’s not a video game in the traditional sense — it’s more of a game about creating games. #Dreams strongly encourages players to embrace their creative side, and you would be surprised by what type of user-generated content you can create.

#Rez #Infinite

#Rez #Infinite is a techno-fueled shooter with sublime and trippy graphics that is truly a breathtaking experience. #It’s released on practically every virtual reality gaming headset, which makes it very accessible to play.

#Beat #Saber

#Although #Beat #Saber was originally released in 2019, this is still one of the best VR games around, and it’s one that every VR headset owner needs to experience. A rhythm game where you use lightsaber-like drumsticks to slice through musical beats? #You can’t beat that. The game has also expanded to a slew of content packs, which include original songs and some licensed songs from bands like #Linkin #Park and BTS.

VR #Shoot #Around

#Among the many things I missed this year because of the pandemic is sports. #Namely, the ability to go to a basketball court and shoot some hoops. #After some asking around, I heard about a really decent VR simulation title called VR #Shoot #Around, and it did not disappoint. #Oh, and did I mention this game is only $5?

#Trover #Saves the #Universe

#Like a few games on this list, #Trover #Saves the #Universe was not released in 2020 (though it was released this year for the #Oculus #Quest). #Developed by #Squanch #Games, this game is one of the goofier titles available on VR headsets. #And if you are a fan of #Rick and #Morty, you will surely get a kick out of this game — in fact, it was created by #Justin #Roiland, one of the co-creators of that series.

#Pixel #Ripped 1995

#Like its predecessor, #Pixel #Ripped 1995 is a love letter of sorts to the decade it is set in: the ‘90s. #It’s a sequel to #Pixel #Ripped 1989 and will make anyone who grew up during the 16-bit or 32-bit era of gaming feel nostalgic.
