VR Game Recommendations

My partner surprised me with a Valve Index as an early Christmas gift! I am literally so excited to get home and play it for the first time today. It came with Half-Life: Alyx (can this be enjoyed by someone who’s never played Half-Life?) and I plan on getting Beat Saber (during the next Steam sale). I’ve also played VR Chat in desktop mode so I’ll be playing that in VR for the first time over the weekend and I know there’s a few games in my library already that have VR modes, but not sure which ones off the top of my head.

What other VR games would you recommend?


@MarioPrime says the new Assassin’s Creed VR game is awesome. I plan on picking that one up soon. I’ve got the 7th Guest, and have been having a lot of fun with that. All that being said, Beat Saber is the reason to own a VR headset. Luckily the next Steam sale supposedly starts next week.

I hope other people chime in here! I’ve been loving my Quest 3.


I’m trying to hold out for that sale. It was impossible to fall asleep last night cause I am so stinking excited. Beat Saber is the main reason I wanted a VR headset and it’s going to be hard not to buy it over the weekend. I just need to be strong! :sob:


The “game” that blew my mind and convinced me to get a VR headset was Aircar. It’s free and will help you gauge whether you will have any issues with motion sickness as well. You just fly a jetsons type vehicle around a neo city.


I just flipped through the Steam Sale and thought of this thread. Bummer that Beat Saber isn’t on sale! Do things go on and off sale throughout the sale like they used to, or is what you see what you get at the beginning?


What you see is what you get (which I prefer). The way the old sales ran, it felt like gambling, or selling turnips in Animal Crossing. I found it quite stressful, haha.

Beat Saber (according to my partner) has only gone on sale once on Steam back in 2018, so it looks like it doesn’t need discounts to do well. Unsurprising as I believe it’s the most popular VR game besides VR Chat. We decided to buy it any way and get some mods running to access all the community content that’s out there. Once I recover from being sick, I will be diving headfirst into it.
