Lists of killer apps and games by user ratings - for the Rift hmds and Quest 1 & 2 with Link

RuneSR2
Level 15

To get an overview, here're lists of the highest rated games and apps for the Oculus Rift hmds and for Quest 1 & 2 with (Air)Link. If you're new to PC-VR, maybe these lists can be of inspiration - and maybe even old-timers can find stuff they've overlooked...  

To be included at least 40 users must have rated a game or an app, and the average user rating must be at least 4.5 stars out of 5 (= 90 % or better) - based on user ratings in the Oculus Rift Store (Steam games or apps are not included). Maybe we could call these lists for grade "A" games and apps - or simply current Rift killer games and apps  😉

And why the need for 40 user ratings? In the Oculus Rift Store there are many games and apps receiving high ratings, but to provide sound statistics it's not enough with just 3 user ratings - or 10 - or even 20. I've chosen 40 because it's close to the minimum number of individuals I'd want in a group, if I was trying to get some robust statistics after collecting answers to a questionnaire (for a medical trial and similar investigations). I've provided the current number of user ratings for each game or app, so if some readers only trust average ratings based on 100, 500 or even 1,000 user ratings, the lists will accommodate for such preferences. 

Note that these lists are not influenced by my preferences - I'm just the guy counting user ratings and associated average ratings  o:)
Also note that new awesome games or apps may not yet be on the lists due to an insufficient number of user ratings.

BTW, to make these lists I selected the Oculus Store category containing all games and apps, organized the items according to user ratings (highest ratings first) and then - one by one - checked the number of ratings and the average score. 

Finally we could also check which game or app (with an average user rating of at least 90 %) has the most votes in total - and the winner in each category is:

 

Rift game with the most ratings

Zenith didn't last long - it's now down to 88% with 132 ratings - but it's early access. I've removed the game from the list, but will keep an eye on the game.

I just sat down and updated the lists - that actually did take some time, but also gives me an idea what's moving up or down. 

 

New games added to the list of killer games

 

Golf+ with an amazing 96% average rating

 

Gorilla Tag with a 92% average rating

 

Path of the Warrior with a 90% average rating

 

Half + Half with a 90% average rating

 

The Eastern Edge with a 90% average rating

 

New apps added to the above list

 

Arden's Wake with an awesome 94% average rating:

 

- and Nanome with a 92% average rating:

 

If anyone thinks VR lacks content, have you tried all games and apps on the above lists? - The content listed is the tip of the iceberg. The Rift Store contains a massive amount of gems - and many which cannot be found anywhere else, not even using Steam or Viveport! Even if some are found on Steam, getting the game from the Rift Store will secure support for native Oculus drivers, and that may mean you'll gain about 30% in performance. That's something to think about 😉
