Hey Guys! 

So I just received my Rift a few days ago and my friends, family and colleagues are storming my house to try VR. Tomorrow a colleague is visitting me and also brings his daughters with (13,16 years). 

I'm just wondering, which VR Games/ Apps/ Movies would you show to kids?

my favourites so far:
Invasion
lost
Farlands 
The Rose and i

for creativity: 
Quill 
Medium
Minecraft

Would appreciate to hear your suggestions. Peace!

    Definitely Dreadhalls or Boogeyman.
    That will keep them awake at night... meaning they are tired and quieter the next day.
    (unless they are tough like me and don't get scared easily)

    But seriously... Lucky's Tail... easily a great one for kids.

    Eve Valkyrie is also awesome.

    Oh, and that short Hedgehog movie. I forgot its name but was free.

    You need to show them 'Henry' the Oculus Studio animated cartoon.
    Also Ocean Rift if you have it.

    For ages 13 and up...

    Wands
    Minecraft
    Vendetta Online
    Bait! 
    Nomads
    National Parks
    Land's End
    Esper 2
    Eve Gunjack
    Jump
    InCell (be careful, this one has very dizzying motion)
    Dreamflight 
    The Dream Dimension (on the short side) 
    Notes on Blindness

    All of these would have my stamp of approval for that age bracket.

    Depends on what their parents let them watch and play when they're at home. When I was 13 I used to watch plenty of 15 and 18 rated films and read plenty of horror and sci-fi/fantasy books.

    People tend to wrap kids up in cotton wool these days.

    Ask their parents if their kids will be okay playing Dreadhalls or any of the other horror games.

    At the ages of 13 and 16 they're practically adults, so putting them in Henry and Lucky's Tale without putting them in the likes of Abe and Dreadhalls will be pretty condescending to them at their age.

    I wouldn't call 13/16 practically adults, but I agree that parents are overprotective these days, and coddle their kids when it comes to entertainment.  I call it the Pokemon generation. ;)  Cause that's when it seems to have all started.  The type of stuff I used to watch as a kid.   :|   I didn't turn into a sociopath... no matter what they try to say.

    Well a 16 year old is practically an adult and whether a 13 year old is practically an adult differs from teenager to teenager. I was practically an adult at 13 years old.

    How old are you now?  I don't consider anyone under 20-21 an adult, regardless of their maturity.  A 13 year old still looks and acts like a child in every regard.  There are 16 year old's who appear mature, but when it comes down to it they're still naive, inexperienced, and a child.  I still consider them kids.  I had a lot of freedom as a kid. A lot!  My parents were never home.  I lived in the Los Angeles area, so I feel like I was pretty exposed as well, but still a kid.  But that's beside the point, and I don't want to hijack the topic.  

    I think any of the experiences on Oculus Home would be alright for a 13-16 year old.   If there's concern about how much your colleague wants exposed to their kids, the coolest experiences in my opinion would be the Oculus demos (First contact <3 especially).  The Blu is really great as well.  Job Simulator would be good, Steam's The Lab would be great, always worth showing anyone, and it's "kid friendly" to the Pokemon generation. ;)

    Luckey's Tale definitely, easy to pick up and play. Not to jarring, and great for all ages. Also a very impressive VR experience altogether.

    Do you have Touch? I had a 12 year old try my Rift over Christmas and he really liked First Contact, and wanted to play it several times. He also liked Bullet Train, but some might argue that's not for 12-year olds ...
