Most of the games for the Oculus Rift are similar to the ones available on the Steam so if you have a Vive, then there is a possibility that you could play these games on your VR headset as well. However, there is a specific list of the best games on the HTC Vive but for now, let’s move on to Oculus Rift and few of the best games that are available on this VR headset.
1. Wilson’s Heart
This is the most interactive game on the Oculus Rift and that is the reason why this game seems more exciting compared to the others on the list. It is a narrative based game where the lead is Robert Wilson who wakes up chained in a hospital. After freeing himself, Robert starts wandering around to find some clues and soon realizes that his heart has been replaced by a mysterious device.
The game is going to release in 2017 and it is something worth the wait. The narration and the star cast of voice actors make the game look really convincing and engaging. This game would go best with the Oculus Rift and it is hopefully going to be one of the best VR experience.
Another adventure narrative sort of game where the graphics are amazing and you would actually appreciate the existence of VR. In this game, the protagonist is sent to Titan (Saturn’s moon) to study something known as “The Entity”. You would be testing and doing some research as the game moves along.
There would be a few other interesting points where you find out the effects of the Entity and you accordingly move ahead in the game. It is an interesting game, although it does involve a lot of narration and storytelling and in the case you have no patience to listen to it all then you much move on to the next game in the list.
3. The Unspoken
The Unspoken is a game where you get to cast spells and there are a variety of hand gestures involved. This game has quite a lot of detailing and the entire game and graphics will blow your mind. There are various spells that need to be cast and the effect of each spell are different which are initiated using different hand gestures.
This is the perfect game that you should play with the Oculus Touch since the interaction with the surroundings is the most important factor. The game is immersive with all the small detailing and in the case you are in second thoughts about giving this game a try then go through the video trailer of the game.
4. The Climb VR
Are you scared of heights? The climb is a first person rock climbing game and is one of the most amazing experiences anyone can have in VR. If you already have a fear towards height then be prepared to play this game and remove the rift anytime you feel nauseated.
The detailing in the game is amazing and if you want to get over your fear of heights without actually going rock climbing then this is one of the best game which can give you a real life experience about rock climbing and help you overcome your fears.

6. Bullet Train VR
The Bullet Train is a first person shooting game and if you are a person who can’t get enough of shooting games, this is the perfect game in VR. This game is great with the combination of the Oculus rift headset and the Oculus Touch. There are features like slow bullets coming out of your gun while shooting so that you can see clearly while shooting your enemy targets.
The game is quite engaging with all the shooting and it reminds me of a few old PC games we had back in the 90’s. The detailing and the graphics of the game are quite detailed making you feel that you are in the game and making the entire experience immersive.
7. EVE: Valkyrie
Eve: Valkyrie is an amazing multiplayer game where you would be in spacecraft and forming teams with other online players in order to fight the enemy unit. It gets more fun with the multiplayer aspect added to it and this game is pretty time-consuming.
The game gets heated up with all the excitement of running to your teammate’s rescue when needed and totally defeating the enemy teams formed online. Being one of the best multiplayer games in VR, EVE: Valkyrie is a must try for all the rift owners and in the case you still have second thoughts check out the trailer here.

The Unearther Inc: The Lost temple is a puzzle game where you go exploring in search of a few items. You are a recruit in a treasure hunting company and have a robotic sidekick named Droid. This game allows you to go on a magical adventure in search of Dragoon Egg.
The whole VR experience is beautiful and breathtaking. If you are into beautiful sights and magical evenings then this game would be one of your favorites. It is impressive that the game has so many fine details which make it all the more engaging and immersive VR experience.

Another eventful multiplayer game on the list is Eagle flight which is an amazing and exciting multiplayer game where you are embodied in an Eagle and try to collect items.

There are different tasks to be done and you need to collect different objects to earn points. It involves flying under and over the bridges, dodging different objects that come in your way while flying making the entire game awesome. This game is the best when it comes to the graphics and immersive VR gameplay.
Chronos is an Oculus Rift exclusive game and is a puzzle sort of game.
