Just over a year old, the consumer-friendly and totally wireless Oculus Quest stand-alone virtual reality headset is proving a smash hit both newcomers to VR and to those whom have been tethered to the PC for far too long. Check the end of this article for other volumes in this collection of mini-reviews.

Hopefully you’ve read my other recommendations already. We won’t be covering older ground.

Before we go over the experiences, just a couple more things. First, these are Quest native titles; not streamed via Link, Virtual Desktop or other means. Second, these are chosen based on a variety of criteria — some scientific and some not so much so; and probably completely inconsistently, too.

Note: I only recommend games I have actually played and enjoy. As such, I do not play multiplayer games on Quest because I am not going to use Facebook; therefore I cannot recommend these experiences to you. These games do not require another human online to gain enjoyment or value — so whether or not you like to play with other people or not, you should be able to get value from them.

In Death: Unchained

Easily one of my top experiences on the PC VR platform, In Death: Unchained is everything the original game was and so much more (and no wires). I could tell you all about here again — or you could just read my comprehensive review … or watch my videos … did I mention I love this game?
