Best VR games and apps so far in 2021

Seems like UploadVR did a great job of fueling my hypertension by releasing this list, lol:

 

https://uploadvr.com/best-vr-games-of-2021-so-far/

 

I couldn't disagree much more - there's simply not a single game on their list I would want on my drives. But it's of course a free world, not all like chocolate cake... 

 

My list would probably be:

Do feel free to add your best titles this year in a post! 

 

PS. Maybe time for a small (prolonged drum-roll) BONUS TEST - if you cannot name the game associated to each of the 4 screenshots below - and don't spend more than 10 seconds on each screenshot - then it means you have not experienced some of the greatest VR experiences ever made. Seriously. I'll go easy for the start 😇

Maybe I need to find a price for this competition? 🤔 🤗 - But I'm sure you all got the 4 names right in less than 15 seconds, right?

An educational free app that I considered including is Baalbek Reborn: Temples

 

 

- but you need to have some interest in history and in expanding your knowledge to find this app interesting. 

 

It's available here:

Oculus - https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/3096742060417405/?locale=en_US

Steam - https://vrpornmania.com/best-games/

 

Another great and highly recommended educational free app would be Pollinator Park:

I've had a lot of fun with Pollinator, I think it's really underrated!

Just added Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall. But you really need a RTX 3080 or better for that game. 

 

This review was just posted in the Rift Store, and I fully agree:

 

"I LOVE THIS GAME New patch has come out

A Lot of work has gone into the lovely sceans and lighting in this game . Sure some textures could be better and some of the fighting could be better but just love the scenery its great! keeps me immersed in this for hours just exploring. Well done . Loved the wizards as well one of my favourite games along with this now. I'm sure the devs will tweek it here and there. We'll done fantastic game. Ps would love some smoke after you kill the floating ghosts instead of dots. This would add alot more atmosphere to the game!!! Edit just came across the bug that wants you to repeat . But can't. So I would need to restart the game all over dropping to 1 star untill this is fixed. What a shame not tested properly. Update my ratings after the new patch sofar so good looking much better. Keep it up going 4 stars now it looks so good. You have my attention now!!! After the update I gave 4 stars now I'm going 5 stars this is up there with one of the best vr games I have ever played. This is a game I can't wait to get back into. WOW WOW. Five stars now."
