There is no denying that VR has taken the gaming world by storm, with the innovative Oculus Quest 2 being the gold standard for VR headsets to own. However, while the Quest 2 is a must-have, the endless sea of games from which to choose can be a bit daunting for players who are new to the VR world.

Fortunately, you can lean on our experience as a guide. After performing trial runs on dozens of Quest games, we narrowed down the following choices to be five of the best games for Oculus Quest 2.

The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners

If you are a fan of the hit television show or are simply a zombie enthusiast, then The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is a hair-raising VR experience that you will not want to miss.

The Oculus Quest’s first AAA single-player game, this game provides a realistic experience as you traverse the streets of zombie-infested New Orleans, with each horror-inducing choice you make yielding hefty consequences for the citizens of the historic city.

The complete edition of this game offers Tourist Edition in-game bonuses and Meatgrinder Update, giving players plenty of choice as to whether they want to stop the zombie insurrection by helping the afflicted or brandishing sheer force to vanquish the enemy.

Topgolf with Pro Putt

The simulated golf experience of Topgolf has taken the country by storm, with the arcade-like environment becoming a focal point of many new commercial developments and making golf more accessible to a younger, less affluent demographic than its prestigious, real-life relative.

However, with the new Topgolf Pro Putt for the Oculus Quest 2, you do not even have to leave the comfort of your own home to get the same simulated golf experience the country is clamoring over.

The game’s wide range of courses, varied club weights, and realistic ball trajectories provide the best golf gaming experience on the market, second only to actual golf greens in terms of golfing experience.

With options for single-player campaigns or multiplayer challenges, Topgolf Pro Putt also comes equipped with other popular lawn games, such as Pitch Pong and Cornhole, giving users the ability to create a diverse outdoor gaming experience in which to participate. 

Pokerstars VR

For a bit of a slower pace, head to the casino for a shot at hitting the jackpot with Oculus’ free Pokerstars VR experience. With over a dozen breathtaking virtual casino environments, users have the choice of playing the full gamut of popular games of chance, such as blackjack, poker, or slots.

While the game does offer paid options to allow you to purchase casino credit, users can spin the chip wheel every eight hours to add to their stack, allowing them to sit at the table for as long as they like (assuming you play your cards right!).

With over 30 in-game challenges to unlock, users can consistently build their rewards and earn a pass to sit at the most prestigious tables the game has to offer, creating a VR experience to rival any night out in Las Vegas.

Half-Life: Alyx

When looking at most lists for the best VR games, Half-Life: Alyx will usually be among the top one or two choices. It scores a bit lower on our list due to the wide range of opinions on shooter games. In addition, as it is not a proprietary Oculus game, you will need to connect your headset to a gaming computer to play the game.

However, in terms of pure VR graphics and gameplay experience, Half-Life: Alyx is arguably unbeatable. With unmatched setting, graphics, storytelling, and attention to detail, users can really feel like they are stuck in an apocalyptic end with no recourse but to battle their way to survival.

Population: One

If you want a battle experience native to the Oculus Quest, then Population: One is likely the choice for you. A flamboyant, VR battle royale, Population: One is sometimes dismissed as a simple Fortnite clone. However, it is far too innovative to be pigeonholed as such.

To survive the game, you and two allies will be dropped into a hostile environment and be required to search for weapons and supplies. The last team surviving will be dubbed the winner.

With the game’s exclusive vertical combat system, users get a battle royale experience unlike any other on the market. All buildings are scalable, giving players unique VR vantage points from which to see the action.

From the top of buildings, you can use your wingsuit to fly into action, deploying any one of the dozens of unique weapons scattered throughout the game to be crowned champion.

Final Thoughts

With no shortage of game options for the revolutionary Oculus Quest 2, we have performed trials on dozens of options to help you separate the best from all of the rest. The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners, Topgolf with Pro Putt, Pokerstars VR, Half-Life: Alyx, and Population: One are the best five Oculus Quest 2 games you can choose to get the full VR experience!
