If you woke up to a brand new PSVR headset on Christmas morning then you’ll no doubt be wanting some advice on what to play. Well, unless you already did your due diligence beforehand and pored over our PSVR reviews…
If you’re in search of some top advice on which PSVR games are hot and which are not, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve reviewed just about every big release here at Pure PlayStation, so I reckon I’m about as good as anyone to go to for PSVR advice.
The following list isn’t listed in any sort of order, so don’t take #1 to be the best and #50 to be a dud. It’s also by no means exhaustive – there are bound to be some great games that haven’t made the list for one reason or another. There are well over 200 games available on PSVR, so 50 isn’t going to be able to name each and every one, but it’s a start and it should get your collection going in the right direction. So without further ado, here are the 50 best PSVR games available right now, as of December 26th, 2018.
1. SUPERHOT VR
“SUPERHOT VR is the epitome of cool. You’re thrown into your very own action movie that’ll have you slaying fools over and over again as you spawn, shoot, die, repeat. If you’re a PSVR owner, you owe it to yourself to at least try this out.” Read the full review.
2. Firewall Zero Hour
“The 4v4 tactical shooter I wasn’t sure we could get in VR is here and it’s even better than I dared to hope. Firewall: Zero Hour is the kind of addicting, multiplayer game that keeps gamers coming back for more, and may even move a few PSVR units. Time will tell if this is PSVR’s Goldeneye, or just another VR multiplayer game with a dwindling player base. Either way, do yourself a favor and play this game.” Read the full review.
3. Pierhead Arcade
“Pierhead Arcade is one of the best value for money games available, no question. You’ve got a whole bunch of classic arcade games that you can play over and over and over without spending more than your initial purchase price which, for the record, is bloody cheap! It could use a bit of multiplayer to have a muck around with friends, and the Moves are showing that light-based tracking isn’t amazing, but it’s all good fun.” Read the full review.
4. DriveClub VR
“Yes, the visuals have taken a hell of a beating to get DriveClub VR running on PlayStation VR, but even without the game’s trademark obsessive attention to detail, DriveClub VR provides a hell of a lot of fun. Just, er, make sure you’ve got a bucket parked next to you. You know, just in case.” Read the full review.
5. Arizona Sunshine
“Arizona Sunshine is a little rough around the edges, that much is obvious, but it’s still a fun, albeit frightening experience. If you’re looking for something a little meatier than some of the crap that finds its way on the PSVR, Arizona Sunshine is a worth a peek.” Read the full review.
“Moss is a heartwarming masterpiece as well as a technical marvel of a game that brings PSVR its first sensation. It’s somewhat short in length but that still doesn’t detract from the experience overall. Polyarc is the Naughty Dog of VR and you shouldn’t miss this amazing debut.” Read the full review.
“Thumper offers enough to get people thinking about the future of rhythm games that don’t include Guitar Hero or Rock Band. The visuals and soundtrack offer something that developers seem to shy away from nowadays and the gameplay, while not without its problems, is fast-paced and exciting. Gamers will probably be disappointed with the fun factor shift halfway through the experience but what’s here is definitely a promising start for the genre within the PSVR ecosystem.” Read the full review.
“For me, Tethered is the first true full single player game for PlayStation VR. It’s not just that it offer great value in terms of playtime, but it’s a great game, too. There’s more than meets the eye with this cute little strategy game, and it’s far too easy to get lost within its colourful worlds.” Read the full review.
“It might be my own personal puke simulator, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a good bit of VR fun to be had with Windlands. It basically lets you swing around like a low-tech Spiderman in a colourful world. What’s not to like?” Read the full review.
10. Sports Bar VR
“Sports Bar VR is as daft as it is fun. The fact you can literally rage quit by smashing the pub up is my personal highlight, though the games themselves are pretty good, too – apart from darts. Darts can die as far as I’m concerned.” Read the full review.
