Best Virtual Reality Games You Can Play Right Now

#6 The Arcslinger

Google has upgraded its virtual reality game with Daydream View. The $80 goggles already have exclusive games that take advantage of the hand controller and head tracking capabilities. One of the cooler games is the futuristic Western-themed first-person shooter The Arcslinger. Armed with the upgradeable gun Angelheart, players assume the role of Valiant and must take down Gold Smoke and his gang. The story unfolds through 15 levels of shooting action across different landscapes. And the game keeps things interesting through different upgrades to the gun, called Arcs, that unleash special powers. This game makes great use of the motion controller for aiming, and offers an entertaining story complete with top-tier video game voice actors like Nolan North.

#5 Robo Recall

From the maker of the Gears of War trilogy comes Robo Recall, a full-fledged game for Oculus Rift’s new Touch controllers. The free pack-in game with the $200 controllers offers a first-person shooter experience minus the motion sickness. The arcade game opts for humor over excessive violence as the player is tasked with rounding up malfunctioning robots that are running around the city. Armed with guns for sharpshooting, the game also lets you tear robots apart limb by limb when they’re up close. And you can even take control of larger robots to laser through waves of incoming “enemies.” Navigating this world is as simple as pointing and clicking to any area, and then instantly being ready to fire at will.

#4 Hover Junkers

Up to eight players can jump into the action of this multiplayer flying combat game that takes place on a junk ship that’s literally the size of the room-scale space you set up with the Vive in your home. Set in a post-apocalyptic world in which battles are fought over the desert wasteland by men and robots aboard hovering junk ships, the action is fast and frenetic in this multiplayer shooter. In addition to having an assortment of weapons you can wield with both hands, the dueling hover junkers can come at you from every side, requiring you to constantly move, jump, duck, and shoot in all directions. You get a good workout along with a fun game that’s always different thanks to its multiplayer focus and variety of game modes. A version for Oculus Touch is expected in 2017, but this game really showcases the room-scale Vive experience. [HTC Vive, $35;] Best Virtual Reality Games You Can Play Right Now

#3 EVE: Valkyrie

CCP Games was one of the earliest developers to tackle VR, and it shows with this action-packed dogfighting adventure. From the first moment you sit in the cockpit, this game reveals the promise of VR with a fully realized and detailed world. Valkyrie is set within the deep EVE Online universe of New Eden, although it does away with all of the strategy of that core game and focuses its efforts on thrusting the player into the middle of a revenge story that pits the space pirates of Valkyrie against an evil corporation. Players can pilot an assortment of customizable, heavily armed spacecraft through intense single-player combat against enemy ships. The game really opens up with cooperative gameplay, where up to five players can create a squad and take on enemies. Multiplayer offers options like Team Deathmatch, Control, and Carrier Assault for never-ending battles in the stars.

#2 The Climb

The Climb is one game that will either cure your fear of heights or send you into a frenzy. It’s one thing to watch a movie like Everest on a big screen, it’s quite another to be high above a valley floor clinging for your life to rocks. To truly experience virtual extreme solo rock climbing, you need to have the Oculus Touch or HTC Vive controllers for full control of your hands as you scale cliffs and mountains. (The Xbox One controller just doesn’t immerse you in the moment.) Real mountain ranges across North America, Europe, and Asia were used to bring this photorealistic game world to life. You can hone your skills in training mode before attempting to climb in Tourist mode, eventually ascending to the Bouldering mode, which requires perfect technique and fast scaling.

#1 Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

This puzzle game has been built around the concept used in countless Hollywood movies and TV shows in which a clock ticks away the minutes and you’re tasked with cutting the correct wire before it's too late. This being a multiplayer game, the bombs you’re tasked to disarm are very complex and packed with switches, knobs, and levers. Every bomb is randomly generated, which opens up the replay value of this experience. As does the multiplayer design, which has one player wearing the headset and the others helping by reading a manual on how to diffuse the bomb. The interactivity this opens up can be hilarious. And it’s a great way to pass around a VR headset and get a taste for the technology, since most people won’t have multiple headsets in a home (outside of mobile goggles).

A virtual world is a computer-based online community environment that is designed and shared by individuals so that they can interact in a custom-built, simulated world. Users interact with each other in this simulated world using text-based, two-dimensional or three-dimensional graphical models called avatars. Here we are going to show you top 6 virtual games which are beyond your imaginations.
