In the last few months mainly due to isolating at home due to COVID-19, there have been many people around the world who have plunged into the realm of virtual reality gaming on the PC platform, we’ve seen the Valve index sell out multiple times as well as the Oculus headsets are very high in demand, there are plenty of great VR games that deserve your time and consideration, for that reason let’s take a look at the top 8 VR games of 2020 on the PC platform in our opinion.
8. Trover Saves the Universe
From the Squanch Games and Justin Roiland comes VR game Trover Saves the Universe. It is an exciting one because it’s actually made by the creator behind Rick and Morty. If you like their sense of humor, you’re really gonna love Trover Saves the Universe. It’s a game that’s genuinely crazy, though, maybe not for everybody. There are some funny jokes here and there. The gameplay is really great because you interact with absurd characters, and it’s actually a lot of fun. If you’re looking for a fun game with a good sense of humor, then Trover Saves the Universe would be a great choice.
You’re partnered with Trover, a little purple eye-hole monster who isn’t a huge fan of working or being put in the position of having to save the universe.
Only you and Trover can save everything in this bizarre comedy adventure.
7. The Room - A dark Matter
A Dark Matter is a game that is from a well-known game series called “The Room”. It is known for being one of the best puzzle games available. Now the new version has been released into the VR platform with the name “The Room-A Dark Matter“. In the game, the puzzles are very engaging as all the other games from Fire Proof Games. Due to VR, the experience becomes a more immersive one. In the game A Dark Matter, the atmosphere is very eerie in this game. It’s very ominous and chilling as you try to escape the room. With some significant sound effects and well-timed music, it really is one of the best puzzle games on virtual reality.
6. the Climb
We have The Climb from Crytek to the list at number 8, which immediately explains why this game is so gorgeous to look at. For years, Crytek has been making some of the most amazing games among the entire industry. Their games have breathtaking graphics such as Robinson-The Journey, and The Climb really is no different, but if you have a phobia of heights, you don’t want to look down as you climb. Crytek does an excellent job here making you feel vertigo, and for that reason alone the climb can be such a rush to play, and that is the thing The climb absolutely cannot be done anywhere but in VR just be sure you’re not afraid of heights before you play this game.
5. MOSS VR
Moss is one of the first VR games that focuses on being a third-person experience instead of a first-person view. You oversee this little mouse creature, but you do 100% control this mouse, and that’s where the fun begins because Moss does several things very well. It has got a lot of cleverly built puzzles that you’ll have to solve. This is where being in VR makes the most sense. On several occasions working in unison as an overseeing creature and controlling the mouse coincides with how you complete these puzzles. The story is very well made, and it’s one of the prettiest games to watch in motion in VR. By this point, you’re probably very aware of Moss, it’s a must-have adventure in VR.
Insomniac Games, the company behind Marvel’s Spider-man and Edge of Nowhere also developed a VR title that you should play, “StormLand“. Fortunately, this one is also one of the best virtual reality games on the entire market and one of the authentic A-Class experiences currently available. StormLand is a first-person shooter, and it has great gun mechanics. StormLand excels at movement, and when it comes to virtual reality games, people prefer games that give you a vast range of motion over simply transporting yourself. With StormLand, you get plenty of traversal options; you can glide for the sky or even climb the wild style. The game has a beautiful apocalyptic design to it and a fascinating story, so if you’re looking for a great experience, then StormLand is an excellent choice.
When the game Boneworks burst onto the scenes, the VR fans absolutely loved this game. Indeed, it is yet another first-person shooter. Still, however Boneworks is an extraordinary VR game because it has advanced physics like no other VR game has done before. In fact, some go so far as to say it’s groundbreaking for VR. The game somehow tricks your brain into thinking you’re actually in the game. The game has a way of making you feel the weight of each object you pick up, but your virtual body is also based on physics, and this is where it becomes interesting. The gun mechanics are also excellent and give you some half-life vibes, and the story isn’t anything to write home about. Boneworks is a must-play experience for VR fans for its physics and well-crafted environments.
2. Asgaurd's Wrath
Asgaurd’s Wrath is a true RPG that is not only one of the best VR games on the market, but it can also stand on par with some of the best RPGs on the entire market, including non-VR games. There are a lot of concerns that surround VR games that how they’re all gimmicky, shorter or just not good enough compared to more traditional games but with Asgard’s Wrath, it takes all of those concerns and throws them completely out of the window from the first moment you boot up Asgard’s Wrath you know you’re in for an adventure and this will take you around 30 hours to complete the story.You will take on the role of four unique characters in their journey related to Asgard because it never really feels repetitive. It does have intense close combat, but you can also oversee an area that allows you to complete some clever puzzles. You can turn individual animals into a humanoid like followers as well. The voice acting is also pretty good. This game has a high production value from the beginning to the end. If you ever hear somebody say that VR doesn’t have any RPGs that can compete with more traditional style games, then lead them to Asgard’s Wrath.
1. Half Life: Alyx
Half-life fans may have waited for well over a decade to play a new Half-life game, but the wait was well worth it. Even though Half-life Alyx is a VR game and may not be what the fans expected. But the VR aspect to Half-life Alyx really adds a new layer to the utterly unexpected universe. While playing Alyx, there are some genuinely terrifying parts in this game at one point in the game you’re even being hunted down by an alien, and it is an intense scene for sure. Even the gun battles feel really intense.You choose a free traversal system where you can walk in any direction rather than warping. It actually doesn’t give you any kind of motion sickness, and battling that way is so much fun during gun battles. There are plenty of puzzles to complete. The story is intriguing as you would expect from a Half-life game and with truly atmospheric scenes. It looks fantastic in VR, and the world is expertly crafted. Some half-life fans may be upset with Alyx being in virtual reality, but it fits perfectly here, and you’ll understand why when you play it.
VR games are finally getting up there its evolving fast and we believe soon it will completely dominate the game world.
