    While I am an active poster on this site, in other places - like reddit and Facebook Groups - I am more of a quiet lurker. And it feels like not a single week has gone by, since April 2016, where some discussion, blog post, or e-Article about how "VR still needs a Killer App" hasn't taken place. Because I encounter that topic so often, that is where my head is at when I see a "Killer App" list.
    In my opinion, there are likely only 2 "biggest killer apps" in VR:
    • On Steam, SkyrimVR
    • On Oculus Home, Lone Echo
    And I still have a problem counting SkyrimVR as a true VR title, but whatevs, that is my own uphill battle lol

    Overall though, it seems that Beat Saber, in all of its simplicity, is probably the Killer App King across all platforms.

    I'd fully agree - I don't know the budget of Lone Echo, but compared to what I'd consider true AAA games due to their budgets alone (like GTA V, Battlefield series, CoD-series etc.) we're probably quite a long way from true AAA games in VR, but I'd love to be wrong.

    So I don't think I've used the AAA-term in my posts in this thread - although I think Lone Echo is vastly superior to any pancake AAA game ;-) 

    To me a killer app is a simply an awesome game or app that most people will greatly enjoy (like Beat Saber) - no matter its budget.

    PS. I did mention AAA in another post ;-)

    Wrench: Engine Building Demo
    This game has so much potential! I love the idea and will buy it as soon as its released and stable. 
    First reaction it crashed, lets try again. Oh I have to start over. Ok hmm the engine wont start, throw a couple wrenches out the window.
    Perhaps I should read and watch the video on how it works.
    Snap I need to pay attention to the instructions.
    I love the game but it did crash on my twice and I had to start over.

    But I hope that it gets the attention it deserves and promotes more games like it.
    ** We need something that shows practical tool use that was lost when shop class was taken away from us.
    Yes I am old and I had shop class. You "kids" that missed out should have a way to see what you missed without having to lose a finger. No I have all my fingers.
    I'm rambling now. Just try the game!!!

    Works nicely with Touch - I'd say the game hasn't aged at all, I find it much better than most titles launched this year. 2c.

    Obduction is today's Daily Deal. Although its average rating is below 90 %, personally I do find it among the very best Rift games - and you'll need a 2080 Ti to enjoy it in 90 fps with maxed out eye candy (or read my review in the store to find suggestions for setting up the game):

    I'm sorry, why is no one actually standing up and applauding you @RuneSR2 for all the hard work, very interesting insight there, Lone Echo is quite pricey maybe that has something to do with it, the higher priced game the more is expected of it and more likely for someone to be critical of it.

    If it was $5.00 it would have had 100% score. 

    Thanks, LZoltowski, you do have a good point; I'm sure Lone Echo would have received an even better rating at a lower price. Maybe being a free (bundled) game has helped Robo Recall getting just as great ratings, and more than twice as many ratings, compared to Lone Echo. Although Robo Recall is an awesome game, personally Lone Echo impressed me much more. 

    I'll be happy to admit that my "secret" agenda making such lists is also to show that we already have many top-ranked VR killer apps and games. Instead of constantly waiting for some AAA VR games to arrive, maybe some of us can find inspiration in the lists and discover real gems that somehow have been overlooked. Currently I'm expanding my VR comfort zone to include sports games, it's been some great discoveries so far (but table tennis, sigh - do I really have to try table tennis... still I can't argue against a 94 % average rating based on more than 300 ratings... ;-)

    https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1101975213197949/


    It's indeed one of the highest rated VR games ever - I'm not much into strategy games, but I couldn't resist this offer and just bought the game (I do have Brass Tactics Arena, which I haven't played much though). The game's made by the creators of Age of Empires 2, fun to see the old trailer:

    In case some haven't noticed, yesterday "In Death" reached v. 1.0 - for those who don't like Early Access, maybe now is the time to try one of the best VR games - rated 90 % based on more than 300 ratings:

    https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1659250310762797/



    "The Sólfar team is incredibly excited to announce that In Death is leaving Early Access on Tuesday October 2nd. Its been an amazing journey with those of you who chose to support our efforts to perfect this game after we first went to Early Access last February. We’ve been hard at work adding new content and balancing our full release based on the frankly incredible hours our players have logged in game over the past few months.

    On October 2nd, we will formally leave Early Access and deliver the new chapter, Paradise Lost that we teased a couple of weeks back at Gamescom. The all new Crossbow is ready and waiting for your shooting pleasure in your Sanctuary, and we hope you enjoy close quarters combat with it as much as we have. The scoring system in Challenges, our async multiplayer mode, has been tweaked and balanced with the great feedback you’ve given us, resulting in what he hope is a fair shot for all play styles to reach the pinnacle of the Ladder. And In Paradise Lost, you’ll encounter a fresh host of angelic and demonic antagonists, culminating in an epic boss fight with Gabriel the Fallen.

    We also want to let you know that at Full Release on October 2, the retail price of In Death will increase from $19.99 to $29.99.  If  you’ve already purchased the game during Early Access, you will of course receive all of the new content at no additional charge. This does mean that if you’ve been thinking about jumping into In Death’s dream kingdom but haven’t crossed over yet, now would be a good moment to do so. And if you have friends that might like to get in on our game at the Early Access price, they can do so until October 2nd."

    http://www.solfar.com/new-blog-avenue/

    Solfar is a company dedicated to make only VR games - so it's possible to earn a living by only making VR games ;-)

    For now it's probably the only VR game to support Nvidia RTX: "Thanks to using NVIDIA’s Variable Rate Shading technology, the team were able to realize immediate performance measured in milliseconds of 25% better framerate when comparing the game running on Turing and with Variable Rate Shading turned on in comparison to running it without the technology, all without any noticeable loss of visual fidelity. Thanks to all this, In Deathis able to utilize super sampling to run at a much higher Pixel Density within the Unreal Engine than was previously possible on current generation GPUs.

    All of these performance improvements mean the development team will have further room to expand the title with more complex post processing effects and particles, leading to a much richer visual experience. All of this is planned to be made accessible in a Game Ready driver which will release for the GeForce Experience when the title leaves Early Access in tandem with consumer availability of the new GeForce RTX 20 Series GPUs."

    In Death is today's Daily Deal (see the link above) - it's truly a must-have for Rift owners (90% average rating based on 385 ratings). I played it last night, it was an impressive experience as always.

    And then it happened - the number 6 game on the mighty Oculus gaming list just went on sale - guess I'm bound to become a fan of VR table tennis  :D

    https://www.oculus.com/experiences/app/989106554552337/

    The game is rated 94% by 335 ratings in the Oculus Store - and on Steam it's maybe even better, a solid 10/10 by 992 ratings. 



    I just bought the game  o:)

    Eleven: Table Tennis VR is today's Daily Deal for just $10. Currently it's rated 92% based on 389 ratings, so I just updated it on the list - reducing the rating from 94 % to 92 %. Personally I do feel that 92 % fits my experience of the game better than 94 % - still, it's an awesome experience. See the link to the game above.

    Witchblood is today's Daily Deal and is quite an awesome game - and is rated at 92 % based on 192 ratings. Get it here:

    It's not a demanding game, I wouldn't be too surprised if GTX 1060 could do 90 fps even with super sampling 1.5 to 2.0.

    BTW, I just updated all games and apps on the lists (page 1). So what happened? - Airtone is no longer the highest rated game - that spot now belongs to Beat Saber, which I think is quite reasonable. Moss moved up and is now second on the list, while Vox Machinae moved a few places down. None of the games were removed (and apart from Shadow Legend no new games were added). 

    For the apps, 1943: Berlin Blitz took a big jump forward and is now the 3rd highest raking app. Lone Echo 2 trailer went down from 96 to 92 %. And I added Marshall From Detroit, it just got 90 % average rating based on 43 ratings - here's the 360 degrees trailer:
