Release Date: August 29, 2016
Onward is a military-simulation VR game that puts you in the shoes of a soldier in battle. While the game draws many similarities to the iconic FPS franchise such as 5-vs-5 gameplay, it also differentiates itself with a slew of innovative gameplay mechanics that are designed specifically for VR.
You’ll be required to perform all the functions of a soldier in battle, such as loading your gun with ammo in real-time and using guns that are true to their time. Mini maps and radars are also absent, which further adds to the immersion.
Release Date: November 11, 2021
Resist is a Meta-exclusive action RPG that’s rich with lore and offers a unique spin on the genre. Making full use of Meta Quest 2’s motion controls, Resist offers one of the most fleshed-out and fun movement mechanics we’ve seen in an action RPG.

Multiplayer capabilities are also excellent, as the game is designed with servers that can accommodate a large number of online players.
Release Date: August 30, 2019
I cannot state how much I love the Blair Witch movie. When the game came out, I was the happiest person on Earth. Thankfully, there is a VR version as well which enhances the overall experience.
Unlike classic horror games, this is more of a psychological thriller with a few jumpscares here and there. You roam around in a forest trying to solve the mystery and safely get out.
As the game progresses, things become more and more insane and you’ll have to avoid enemies as well. Playing in VR can make the game even more scarier than it already is.
Thief Simulator VR
Release Date: November 8, 2019
When Theif Simulator came out, I had a blast playing it on PC. After trying out the VR version, the game was even more fun than before. While the original game was anxiety-inducing, the VR version cranked that up to ten.
You have to sneak around houses and steal things to complete missions. Make sure that you carefully scope out the residents of the house to know their routine.
Some houses are easy to break into while others will require tons of skill and effort. As the game progresses, you unlock new skills and tools to help you become a better thief. Plus, the narrative is surprisingly interesting and will have you wanting more.
PowerWash Simulator VR
Release Date: November 2, 2023
PowerWash Simulator is a game that I didn’t expect to like as much as I do. And I’m talking about the normal PC version of the game. To my surprise, there is a VR version as well and I could not be more happy about it.
As the name suggests, you take the role of a power washer who has to clean the entire area or object. The game is quite satisfying as you slowly remove all the dirt, rust, and other grimy stuff from whatever you are cleaning.
The levels can range from you cleaning a car to an entire subway or a playground. Playing in VR is quite fun as you can clean every corner without any issues and have a great time.
Seeing the end result is always worth the time and effort.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Release Date: October 13, 2016
This is a game where friendships are ruined. I played Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes with my friend and we had so many miscommunications, it’s unreal.
Playing the game in VR is truly nerve-racking as you feel like you are in the room with the bomb. You’ll have to carefully explain what you see to your partner and hope that they find the correct instructions from the manual.
Since they cannot see the bomb, you’ll have to describe everything in great detail. There are several puzzles that you’ll have to solve to defuse the bomb safely.
Release Date: October 19, 2023
Sushi Ben is a unique experience that will be a delight for all anime fans. Featuring exciting 3D manga panels, Sushi Ben is a narrative adventure where you have to fish, catch bugs, snap photos, and more, all to save a beloved local sushi bar from some dastardly land sharks!
Without a doubt, the best part about the game is its cast. There are so many interesting characters that you’ll either love or hate. From your friendly neighborhood landlady to the mysterious shrine janitor, you’ll have to complete quests to get them to dine with you.
The entire gameplay is quite unique as well. This is made even better thanks to the power of VR.
Release Date: May 21, 2019
Working a job can be quite tiring and cumbersome. To unload some stress, you’ll want to play games and have a fun time. Now, imagine if you also worked a job while playing a game.
Alright, I know I didn’t do a good job at selling Job Simulator but the game is extremely fun thanks to how chaotic it can get. You can choose between different jobs and try to perform them to the best of your ability.
Some jobs are quite difficult while others are a breeze. The best part is that you will have a good time just listening to the narrator speak. Unlike working in real life, working in VR is a blast and I love it.
Eleven Table Tennis
Release Date: June 20, 2016
I love table tennis but I can’t play it all the time since my friends aren’t available 24/7. However, thanks to Eleven Table Tennis, I can now play the game with either AI or other players.
The game has a great physics engine that allows you to properly play the game without it feeling too “arcadey“. With physics designed to be as real as ever achieved in a Table Tennis simulator, you will forget you are in VR.

If you’re a fan of action RPGs where you progressively grow in power and might, then this title is one of Meta’s most charming games. Journey of the Gods sets you out on a fantastical journey where you need to stop sinister characters from destroying your land.
With an art style that’s both charming and pleasant to the eye, the world is brought to life in a way that makes you feel like you’re truly within its world.

It gives you the adrenaline of playing the guitar on stage in front of thousands of fans. Pick up your virtual guitar, select a song, match your fingers to the chords, strum the strings at the right time, and engage the crowd.

Whether you play it on VR or normal, Superhot is a fun game that has a unique concept. When you move, the world around you moves. You have to carefully navigate through levels and take out enemies as a single hit can mean game over.
In VR, you can truly test your limits as you can dodge bullets by ducking or simply weaving to the side. Plus, you can pick up objects like weapons and use them to your advantage.
While the game might seem easy at first, it quickly becomes challenging as you have to take on more and more waves of enemies in different ways.

Five Nights at Freddy’s has garnered massive support from the community thanks to how good the game is. It even has a movie now! If the normal game felt creepy, crank that up to 10 because the Meta Quest 2 will have you screaming.
Five Night at Freddy’s: Help Wanted brings the terrifying scares of the mainline FNAF games, as well as new modes, and puts them into a horror-filled VR setting.

With almost everyone jumping on the Among Us train, not less than a few years ago, the game had become somewhat of a staple in the community. Now, you can enjoy the game completely in VR and prove to your friends that you are not the imposter.
Playing Among Us in VR changes the dynamic of the game as you have to be aware of your surroundings before you interact with other players or objects. Plus, it gives the game a scary vibe if you aren’t the imposter.

I cannot talk about the best VR games and not mention the legendary Resident Evil 4. At this point, the game has been released on almost every major platform. With the remake, the game surged in popularity again and took the spotlight – as it should.
Join the journey of Leon as he travels through villages and castles to rescue the president’s daughter – Ashley. If you thought that the game was scary before, imagine how you’d feel in VR.
Without delving into the spoiler category, just playing through the starting village section gave me goosebumps as it truly felt like I was at the location thanks to the Meta Quest 2.

Finally, let’s talk about the best Meta Quest 2 game – Beat Saber. If you are familiar with VR, it is not a surprise that Beat Saber is in the top spot. The game is extremely fun due to how much replayability it has.
You can choose from thousands of songs – custom or official – and enjoy the game. You have to cut the correct colored blocks to progress and earn points.
