Best games for your VR device
Virtual Reality can become a success or a major flop, will depend on a few ‘ifs’, such as: if they will be light enough to not be back breaking, if they will have the right or fair price, and of course if they will have a nice design. Of course, their success will depend on the games as well.
Due to the increased interest in VR and the high number of game developers, the only conclusion would be that the gaming area.
Oculus Rift Games
Sega purchased Alien’s license and rumors are already out about a support for Oculus Rift. The prototype launched for the headset could be a hint for the game that will give VR a real boost. Not only Creative Assembly created the game, but it the game has two more aces up its sleeve: the fine recreation of tense atmosphere and claustrophobia and, let’s not forget about the terrifying film as its foundation. The game will be released in October.
The Doom franchise created another possible success game with outer space atmosphere. Even if the game is more than 10 years old, the lighting effects and monsters are even more stunning when you see them in full-on 3D. Doom 3 is already out and waiting to be played.
Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, Minecraft’s developed, never believed that his game will ever be on Rift, but since Microsoft bought the successful game, all this have changed. The VR version of the game promises to bring a whole new point of view on this pixilated world. Best news for all the fans out there. The game is available now.
Surgeon Simulator 2013
Bossa Studio has managed to create a realistic version of Operation, where your surgeon has to perform different procedures on his less than fortunate patient, Bob. This game support both Razer's Hydra peripherals and Oculus Rift, and it is available.
This is a full-fledged driving simulator which a built-in support for Oculus Rift. If you add a steering wheel and a bucket seat you can really create the feel of driving a supercar. Good news is that the game is available on Steam Early Access.
This game’s ideas will make you ask yourself why has nobody thought of them earlier. It is a trivia game on which, if you don’t know the answer, you can either throw things to distract the teacher or look at a student’s paper. The students are dolphins and the game is over if you are caught. This game will be out soon.
Galaxy Gear VR Games
This game still remains a mystery for Samsung’s upcoming headset. It is rumored to be similar to Legend of Zelda and will be created by John Carmack and the team from Oculus. This seems a nicer twist to the horror scenarios we have recently seen.
This survival horror game is developed by Supermassive Games and will be launched in 2015. The story follows either teens hunted down by a serial killer. This seems like the perfect setting for a horror movie.
Developed by the people behind the famous game Tekken, this game will place the player in a Japanese schoolgirl’s bedroom. You can hang around and talk with a girl in a school uniform. Sounds creepy enough? Well, this game only proves that VR cannot be used only for space worlds and magic realms. The game has no air date, but many people hope that the game will never see the light of day.
This game already has a demo and it seems really promising. Pretty neat for a device that caused some giggles and laughs at the beginning.
