Are there alot of games developed for Tech geeks over 40 years old. So my kids got me a Quest for Fathers day. As I traverse the games,, I see a lot cartoons or your kids games. Are serious racing games like Indy 500 or grans Turismo type racing games. 1st shooter games are getting better, so I like that. I am just hoping this game system is not just for children. Can someone help. Also what some truly cools apps.
As a Tech geek over 60, I highly recommend that you try out a few games like Moss, Red Matter, Espire 1 and Phantom: Covert Ops (my pick out of the previous list). I love Virtual, but I'm not a big first person shooter, but I'm also not big on just puzzle games. Need a combo of both where I'm not dying every few minutes, but I still die if I'm not careful. If you have good enough PC to play Half Life Alyx, get Virtual Desktop and HLA. It will be the most immersive gaming experience you will ever have. The only problem is it will spoil you to the point where nothing else seems as good.

If you do then try these from Steam and the Oculus Store:
Dreadhalls Exorcist Legion VR Superhot VR Five Nights At Freddy's Help Wanted VR SuperHOT VR Edge Of Nowhere Chronos Narcosis Face Your Fears Face Your Fears II Duck Season Paranormal Activity Lost Soul Wilson's Heart Stormland Asgard's Wrath Artktika.1 Killing Floor Incursion Drop Dead Kobold Chapter 1 Lone Echo Dead & Buried Dead & Buried 2 The Mage's Tale From Other Suns The Climb Robinson The Journey Arizona Sunshine Elite Dangerous No Man's Sky Affected The Manor Dirt Rally Witchblood Monstrum Moss Robo Recall Don't Knock Twice Half Life Alyx Skyrim VR Fallout 4 VR Alien Isolation VR Mod Doom 3 BFG VR Mod
Dreadhalls and Alien Isolation VR Mod are the joint two scariest VR games out there so please take care to play them either wearing a nappy or have clean underwear handy to change into lol 😄
If you don't have a PC powerful enough to play Rift games then there are several games here in the Horror and Mystery section of the Quest Store. Some of these (Dreadhalls, Drop Dead, Face Your Fears II and Affected The Manor) are all cross-buy - so if you buy them from the Quest Store you can also download and play the same title from the Rift Store for free.
Though I'm a woman, I am around your age and a gamer nerd and I really enjoy "The Climb" - for exercise, to enjoy the scenery, and to face my mild fear of heights. Kids could play it just fine, but it's not a child-focused game. And, until you master the half-grip to hold with one hand, it can be quite challenging.
Skyrim, Elite Dangerous, and SuperHot all feel adult-focused to me too and are all really enjoyable and deep.
