From the safe training of people engaged in dangerous occupations to college, VR devices have undoubtedly proven to be a versatile and very useful tool. But VR technologies are also more and more present as a pastime in everyday life.
VR gaming is an increasingly common occurrence due to the unique experience it provides to gamers. If you own a VR hedset and are interested in what all the good games you can play on it, you are in the right place.
What kind of hardware do I need?
If you plan to experience VR games via HTC Vive, or Valve Index, keep in mind that you'll need a powerful gaming computer or laptop to do so. For the best experience, we recommend a computer with a fast processor, a modern and powerful graphics card, and enough USB ports so you can plug in all the peripherals you need.
It's a little easier for PlayStation console owners. You don't have to worry when it comes to system specifications. Any PS4, PS4 Pro, or PS5 console can run PlayStation VR.
Meta Ques 2 and a handful of other hedsets work as separate devices. They're like VR consoles; they do not need to be connected to a computer in order to function. Quest 2 can be connected to a computer if you want to play graphically more demanding VR games.
Arguably one of the best VR games you can play right now, Half-Life: Alyx isn't Half-Life 3 or Half-Life 2: Episode Three, but it's the first complete Half-Life game valve has released in a long time. The game takes place between Half-Life and Half-Life 2. In the game you play as Alyx Vance, one of the favorite characters of the Half-Life series. The campaign in the game lasts about 11 hours.
It should be taken into account that Valve made this game exclusively for VR, so you can expect extremely impressive physics and excellent graphics in it. The fighting and story of this game are also top notch. If you're a Half-Life fan who's still patiently awaiting Half-Life 3 today, this is the perfect experience for you.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Edition.
We have a cult classic. Skyrim doesn't need to be announced too much since it's an older game that has been released in a bunch of different releases so far. One of them is the VR edition. It's the biggest adventure game you can play on VR right now. While it may not provide as much of a smoothed experience as the other VR games on this list, Skyrim VR is still an extremely fun game that will give you hours and hours of fun – especially if you're a fan of Elders Scrolls games.

The Talos Principle VR
Here's a game from our area. The Talos Principle is a game by the Croatian studio Croteam in which you play as an intelligent robot whose task is to move through labyrinths and solve puzzles in various mysterious areas that are full of modern technology. The game is beautiful, with realistic textures and lighting.
In addition to the riddles themselves, the more curious ones can move away from the given path and explore the story behind the game itself. As you go through the story, you learn more and more about the world you're in, all of which affects your decisions in the game. This game is perfect for anyone who loves puzzles and philosophical sci-fi stories.

Superhot is a game whose basis is "bending" time. When you stop moving, time in the game stops so the whole game stops along with you. Also, depending on how fast you move, it moves so fast and time in the game. The object of the game is to defeat all enemies who attack you at a certain level. For this, you can use a variety of arsenal of weapons, from fists, through swords and various objects, to rifles.
But you need to be careful – one bullet is enough to get rid of the enemy, but it is also enough for them to get rid of you. This game is suitable for all people who love action, but also for those who love puzzles. Since the game stands still, you have time to devise various strategies to pass the level.
It should be noted that the game is quite demanding, although it may seem easy at first, so be prepared for a lot of dying and repeating levels.
Trover Saves The Universe – the perfect game for Rick and Morty fans
Finally, a very unusual game. Trover Saves The Universe is a game that does not belong exclusively to one genre, the underwear contains elements of action, puzzles and platformers. The game was created by Justin Roiland, one of the creators of the popular Rick and Morty series (which we definitely suggest you watch, if you haven't yet). In the game, you play as Trover and try to save your dogs and simultaneously save the entire universe.
The game itself is not too demanding and therefore very affordable. It should be noted that there is a lot of blood and swearing in the game. If such things do not suit you, this may not be the game for you. However, if you're a Rick and Morty fan, this is definitely the perfect game for you.
