VR games have been interesting and intriguing. HTC Vive is the best VR headset one could ask for in order to have the best gaming experience in VR. There is a lot of content on SteamVR and one could access and buy any of the VR games anytime. Out of the whole library of VR games available for the HTC Vive, here are a few games which are worth your time if you own a Vive or are planning to buy one. Check out these games and let me know your favorite in the comment section down below.
1. Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope
This game is one of the best first player shooting games that you can find in VR. The game is full of action and shooting. You have loads of levels and tons of guns that will be available from the beginning of the game. You can even opt for planet hopping where you can battle across the Egyptian sands or under ancient ruins and may other locations.
This game is all about fighting Aliens on a Planet by stepping into the shoes of Sam himself who is the captain of a Battlecruiser and is on a mission to kill all the enemies that come his way. The VR experience is extremely immersive and interactive. Check out the game on steam.
2. Island 359
Anyone who wanted to have a Jurassic park experience, this game is perfect for you! In this game, you are dropped off from a helicopter to an Island. The mission here is to wipe off all the dinosaurs from the place and you have a lot more to explore in the jungles.
The game is pretty amazing, however, the quality of VR could be improved. There are situations where you might find it a bit laggy and the quality may not be as good as we see on various other games. The overall gameplay is amazing and it is one of the best games you could play in Virtual Reality.
3. The Assembly
One of the best games on the Vive with a great storyline and hours of gameplay added to it, The Assembly is a puzzle game which is set up in a desert region. You are given different situations and based on your decisions the story moves forward in the game. The game is very interactive and immersive, it is one of the games that would get you so hooked since it creates a curiosity among its players.
This game is quite addictive and you have multiple endings. In a way, this game does remind me of Catherine, but that game had a totally different story although the format of both the games is quite similar. If you already own a Vive, then you should definitely try this game, it’s worth every bit of the money you spent purchasing the VR headset.
4. Cosmic Trip
The Cosmic trip is another real time strategy game and here you spend time building machines, structures, and various other structural units. You build an army which would protect your bases from enemy units. It is quite an interesting game in VR and the initial tutorial goes about teaching you the basics of building your own bases.
It can be a little too much at first but soon you would get into the groove of the game and be able to understand how to go about making an army and competing with the enemies in order to defend yourself. You would be producing different kinds of robots and there are weapons and frisbees which are actively used to destroy the enemy.
5. Time Machine VR
This is another exotic game where you are out on a quest to collect data in order to prepare an antivirus for a widespread prehistoric dangerous virus that will cause the extinction of the human race if not treated. You go on a journey where you come across different prehistoric creatures.
The graphics are pretty amazing in this game and you would love the way it would look in VR. The underwater creatures and the journey of discovering the history of these creatures will blow your mind. Overall, this game has an amazing experience and is one of the best VR games on the Vive.
6. War Thunder
If you want to fly an aircraft then that is possible in VR through this title. War thunder is a game where you would be flying aircraft or even move across landscapes in tanks and try to battle it out with the enemies. You can play on land or in the air but the aircraft mode is more fun and interesting.
Although you have both land and air battles to choose from, you cannot have both the modes of a single gameplay, which means that if you choose to battle on the land then there is no threat from any aircraft flying above your tank. The motive is to blow up as many enemy units as possible making it a perfect title for hardcore VR gamers.
7. Fallout 4
Fallout 4 is one of the games that is most awaited in the year 2017. The game is being developed for the HTC Vive and the rumors have it that it would be releasing soon this year. The Fallout 4 is a game which you just cannot stop playing and if you like weapons, shooting and an engaging storyline then you might want to start saving up on a Vive.
This solo survivor quest has a lot to offer and the fans are surely having a hard time waiting for this game to be out. The previous Fallout games have been amazing and this one in VR is not going to be an exception. The expectations for this game are really high and if you are a Vive owner then you must try this game without fail.(Update: Expected release is around June 2016)
8. EVE: Valkyrie
Eve Valkyrie has been one of the best multiplayer games and the experience just get better in VR. You need to manually form teams before you can talk to them and then after forming a team, you need to battle it out with the enemy team. This is one of the most exciting multiplayer games that you have on the Vive and you cannot miss playing this game.
Having said that, the progression in the game can be slow and it is time-consuming, you might end up playing for hours together. It has a great gameplay and graphics and if you are a Vive user then you might have already played this game and if not then go ahead and play it soon.
9. Vanishing Realms
This is one of my favorites and if you too like survival games where you need to adopt different strategies to kill your enemy and move forward in the game. You have a lot of interaction with objects in the game which justifies the VR component of the title. You have a great storyline, puzzle, mystery and everything you can ask for!
It is one of the best adventure games that I have played in VR and it is a must try if you like adventure games where there is more of a single player combat with different modes. You will love playing the game since it has one fo the best controls and it is really easy to understand without the need of any tutorial in the beginning(Although it has one ). There are constant updates for this game which implies that the game only gets better with time.
10. Job Simulator
One of the Goofy yet interesting games on the Vive is the Job Simulator. You will be handed different jobs or tasks and each of the tasks will the best part of the game is you get to interact with objects in the same way you do in real life.
You can mix various odd things in the smoothie and give it to the customer expecting different reactions from them. The game is meant to mess up these tasks and come up with different funny outcomes. It is a fun game and it is easy to play and do some goofy stuff around. Every cabinet you open has some interesting objects to try out and goof around.
