Top 10 Best VR Games of All Time

Recently, there has been rapid development in VR technologies, and as a result, more and more VR games have begun to appear. As more companies are announcing new VR headsets and major studios are to launch new VR, like the upcoming spinoff of the Horizon series created by Guerrilla Games and Firesprite, VR is becoming more than just a novelty. It is clear that VR games have much more to offer than just that fun experience.

We’ve had a look at the top 10 best VR games of all time, according to VR game YouTuber ThrillSeeker who picked a wide selection of titles. Whether you’re a fan of shooters, card games, or old-fashioned turn-based RPGs, you should find something that will catch your eye. Another cool thing is that ThrillSeeker didn’t just look at AAA titles but also small indie games with small-but-dedicated teams behind them. While not every game is a major title like Guerrilla’s recently released Horizon Call of the Mountain available on the new PSVR2, there are many hidden gems among the less well-known, small releases that need a shout out.

10. Rumble

“Rumble” is a VR indie game created by a small Netherlands-based studio Buckethead Entertainment that premiered in September 2022. If you’ve ever wanted to become an earthbender, now is your chance. This motion-controlled game allows players to control rocks and earth and become martial arts masters. It’s quite a difficult game that requires fitness and good eye-hand coordination, so it may be a bit of a workout for a regular player. While a slightly demanding title, ThrillSeeker believes “Rumble” offers a very satisfying experience and rewards players with a sense of accomplishment.

9. Mothergunship: Forge

In this exciting wave shooter, the player assumes the role of a pilot of a futuristic mecha suit.  While shooting at groups of enemies is fun on its own, the most interesting part of the game is the creation of new types of weapons, ThrillSeeker explains. By winning levels, the player receives new weapon parts from which he can create comical and crazy new guns. It’s a fun game with intuitive controls, which can be played for hours on end.
