This is especially true for the Oculus Quest, an independent VR gaming system that doesn’t need a PC or console to run its games. But with hundreds of games to try out, which should you start with? This guide can help you.
Beat the saber

The game is super fun, and it has different difficulty levels that you can play, whether you’re in the mood for a good time or a good workout.
Super hot VR

SuperHot VR is a very strategic hell game. Time stops, along with enemies and projectiles, when you’re not moving, and then speeds up in real time when you do.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners

Just like any The Walking Dead game, you take on hordes of zombies and encounter desperate survivors. Whether you work with them or leave them alone, it’s your choice.
