Your Top x Favorite games on the Rift?

ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 13,672 Valuable Player
Moments ago I beat Lone Echo for the first time, and wow... it's one of those "left me speechless" moments. As a result I started reviewing my Library, which dates back to 2016, and naturally I wanted to compile a list of some of my most memorable VR experiences in the past 2 years.

I'm interested in what the rest of you Rifters would rate as your "top" favorite VR experiences so far.

Mine, in alphabetical order:
  1. Albino Lullaby
  2. Crystal Rift
  3. Darknet
  4. Dead Secret
  5. Farlands
  6. From Other Suns
  7. ioMoon
  8. Lone Echo
  9. Nevermind
  10. Obduction
  11. The Unspoken
  12. The Invisible Hours
  13. Xing

    All I play, period,  since 8 days ago is Orbus.  Free play starting tomorrow through the weekend...  Feels like the Everquest of it’s time.

    I played Orbus for about 2 weeks straight. Great game. I took a break after getting to some of the higher level content. I'd like to see more added to the game.

    Absolutely agree.  It’s very early in content, but concept wise, this is MMORPG in VR!  Amazing!

    Everything else

    (There's lots of cool stuff, but those three are the ones I keep coming back to the most)
  • snowdogsnowdog Posts: 6,400 Valuable Player
    So difficult not to list my entire library lol

    In order of awesomeness:

    Elite Dangerous
    Skyrim VR
    Robo Recall
    Lone Echo
    Dreadhalls
    SuperHOT
    SuperHOT
    SuperHOT lol :D
    The Climb
    Robinson The Journey
    The Mage's Tale
    Chronos

    That's my top 10, but ask me again tomorrow and I'll probably list a few different ones here and there. Elite Dangerous and Skyrim VR are now first and third place in my best games of all time list. :o

    I have only had it for about 3 months now - but these are my favourite experiences in order:

    1. Bigscreen
    2. SkyrimVR
    3. SuperhotVR
    4. Arizona Sunshine
    5. Doom 3 BFG VR
    6. No One Lives Forever 2 VR
    7. Lucky's Tale
    8. Alien Isolation
    9. gzDoomVR
    10. QuakeVR

    I know that SkyrimVR is not a full VR experience but I'd say it is my favourite game in VR - simply because I feel the sheer amount of content offered outweighs the minor annoyances I have with the interface and lack of proper VR hand presence.

    I would say my favourite native VR experience so far has been SuperhotVR - because it makes you feel like a total bad ass action movie star.

    Bigscreen sees the most use out of me though - I have spent over 100 hours in it watching TV and movies and I just see that number going up.

    Well different strokes for different folks I guess. The platforming isn't poorly implemented imo, and if those ideas are 'stolen' then the same can be said of every platform game whether they're flat 2D, flat 3D or in VR.

    And the sequel didn't support VR because it was a launch title for the Xbox One X and Microsoft obviously funded it. If it was a cross platform title you would most likely see a VR version for the PSVR and PC VR headsets.

    I'm not sure I have a favorite; never feels like I have much time to get truly invested. Some of my favorite rift experiences with games so far have been as much lessons learned. 

    1 - Robo Recall - First game I really got into, only one I've actually beat so far. Top of the list since it was the game that helped me convince the wife that I needed a bigger play area instead of a 4-5 section in the office. Might of helped that when I ripped off a robots head I smacked into the ceiling fan and shattered a lightbulb...

    2 - Titan Slayer - Fun little game I mess around with every now and then, got me to realize how out of shape I was when playing games kicked my butt physically.

    3 - Knockout League - The game seems to be constantly growing with new content thus far. Without a doubt it's a nostalgic touch back to the good 'ol Punch-Out days.

    4 - Skyrim - A massive vr experience, might move up the list if I ever break down and start modding it.

    5 - Raw Data - The solo game of it is fun, only about half way into it and haven't tried any of the co-op yet but great potential.

    Have more in the library, though a lot I haven't really found the time to get into to actually see how I like it. Maybe with the Orbus trial this weekend if I get time I'll see how that goes!

    I have about 70 VR games and apps, in Oculus and Steam, hard to tell my favorites...
    No particular order, and I'm sure I'll forget some....
    - Onward
    -Skyrim VR of course
    - Obduction
    - The Talos principle
    - Project Cars 2
    - DCS
    - The Invisible Hours
    - Everyday Golf
    - Robo Recall
    - Wilson's Heart (one of my favorites though I can't play it anymore, too scary for me, too bad I hate jumpscares...)
    - H3VR
    - Elite Dangerous
    - Eurotruck and American truck simulator
    ...etc
    I just bought GORN and Kartong today, just had a glimpse on them and I already LOVE them ! Kartong is well worth discovering ;)

    And I'm waiting for a big sale to buy Lone Echo and In Death, I've more than enough to keep me busy for a long time, even though I play almost 3 hours a day (only in VR, I uninstalled every "flat" game, I can't play them anymore)

    Top free:

    1. Deadly Hunter
    2. AIRCAR
    3. SanBase Travel fractals (some in-app purchases)


    If there’s one constant in my list, it’s that I like simple gameplay and interesting environments without a lot of complex controls to be figured out. There are a number that I really liked but got stuck in for some reason or another and never completed. Plus there are a ton that I purchased in various sales but have never gotten around to really playing yet. Just purchased  Skyrim and I expect that to keep me busy for some time now! 


    Sorry for the iPad screwed up formatting

    Not really a spoiler to the ending, you will understand if you ever get the chance to play. But you're right, could seem like a story element. Fixed.

    My top 5:

    1) IL2: Battle of Stalingrad/Moscow/Kuban
    2) DCS World (Ka-50 and AV-8B specifically)
    3) Robo Recall
    4) From Other Suns
    5) Skyrim VR (would probably like it a lot better if I hadn't already played it to death outside VR)

    You're still calling a free game a 'cash grab' ?? You need to stop using complex terms.

    Lucky's Tale was great, and definitely deserves an honorable mention.

    Onward is the real cash grab, and you've been fanboying it for over a year.
