While it may seem like you need a high-powered gaming rig to get immersed in VR gaming, that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, Nintendo Switch players can get involved in the world of virtual reality thanks to the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. These DIY headsets are designed to connect to the Nintendo Switch console and its controllers. This child-focused VR set can be a great entryway into the world of VR, and since it’s designed to work with your Nintendo Switch, you’ll be able to use it with some of your favorite games.
While there may not be as many VR games for the Nintendo Switch as other consoles have, that doesn’t mean that what is available isn’t worth a look. Some of the most popular games that support VR include:
Some may write off this VR game for the Quest 2 as just another Fortnite clone, but while Population: One is a battle royale game, it’s much more than that. In this game, you and your teammates are dropped into a hostile environment with the goal of being the last group standing. But unlike in other battle royale games, every surface is climbable, opening up a world of tactical possibilities. Thanks to the immersive environment and tight controls, it’s a smooth-running and exciting game.
This VR game for Oculus headsets is designed to make you feel like an action hero in a world that’s stunning to look at. Surrounded by an intense soundtrack, you’ll feel like you’re the superspy the game makes you out to be while you shoot enemies to the beat of the music. While Pistol Whip is great entertainment, it’s also a great workout, since you have to dodge and squat out of the way when your enemies try to shoot you.
When it comes to VR Games for the Oculus, Beat Saber is easily one of the most popular. It’s easy to learn, and because it’s available across VR platforms, you can play with friends on different VR devices. Beat Saber comes with dozens of pre-installed songs, and you can also buy add-on packages of songs by some of your favorite artists.
Until You Fall is one of the more popular VR Quest games for fans of action and adventure. This game allows you to master your own fighting style with a combination of melees and magic so that no two people will battle in exactly the same way. You can fight corrupted humans, monstrous creatures, and unknown horrors as you traverse through a once-innocuous neon world.
Winner of the VR Game of the Year award in 2019, this VR game for the Quest 2 is a charming yet intuitive puzzle adventure with enough twists to leave you wondering where the game will go next. Play as a fisherman puppet living alone in a tiny cabin who quickly discovers that reality isn’t what it seems.
Unlike many other VR Oculus games available, in Moss, you play the role of “The Reader” as opposed to the main character, so you’re watching everything unfold in front of you. Moss is lovingly rendered to look like a Studio Ghibli movie brought to life, but you can interact with the world as you help the main character on her quest.
This VR game for the Oculus Quest 2 is an incredibly rewarding shooting experience that truly leans into what virtual reality can be like. In this game, time only moves when you do; as long as you stand still, the world around you will be as still as you are. This means that when you move even a little bit, time starts up again, and so do your enemies. Superhot VR truly shows how immersive VR gaming can be.
