Rec Room isn't just a great free game; it's a great game in general. Don't be deterred by its basic graphics — this game houses thousands of different rooms that allow you to play multiple games with your friends, including a paintball battle royale, laser tag, and a pirate ship adventure.
Arena battles!: Echo VR
This title is an offshoot of Lone Echo. In Echo Arena, you fly around as a team of robots playing a VR version of Ultimate Frisbee. It's a popular game on several VR platforms and is a blast on the Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Quest.
Thrill ride: Epic Roller Coasters
With Epic Roller Coasters, you get more than just a simulation of a roller coaster. The game allows you to race, shoot enemies, and compete with your friends.
Bait! is a basic fishing game. In it, you catch a variety of fish to help a struggling aquarium. There are four different lakes to fish in, and each has its own types of fish.
Learning VR: Oculus First Contact
This game almost feels like an extension of the virtual welcome area you're placed in when setting up the Oculus Quest. It's a great way to familiarize yourself with the Quest's controls and allow you to practice grabbing, shooting, and more.
Virtual pet: Bogo
This is a lighter game than the others on this list, but this one gives you a chance to play with a cute virtual pet. You can feed it, take care of it, and explore a scaling play area.
Future pilot: Space Dodge2
This Oculus Go game is now available on the Oculus Quest. In it, you're a futuristic pilot on a mission. You travel through the galaxy and overcome challenges using just your piloting skills.
Flying free: FREE FLIGHTER
This combat flying game places you inside a dangerous nebula to battle your enemies. You have to protect your interstellar base and leaders from "the defilers." It's another Oculus Go game that can run on the Oculus Quest.
Gotta hand it to you: Elixir
This free game supports hand tracking, so it's a great way to try out a different way to control your Oculus Quest. In Elixir, you can mix potions, make magic, and deal with the ensuing mayhem of the alchemy lab.
Get started with some free games
There aren't a ton of free Oculus Quest games, but you can explore several of the headset's features and have fun while you save to build up your library. Rec Room is the most impressive title on this list. Its variety of gameplay and a seemingly unlimited number of rooms allow you to play for hours with or without your friends. You get so much here, and you don't have to pay a dime.
Echo VR is another excellent free game on the Oculus Quest. It takes advantage of the untethered nature of the headset and has you move freely inside a virtual arena. Just make sure you don't bump into your furniture or another person!
If you haven't grabbed an Oculus Quest 2 or Oculus Quest yet and are just scouting out which games are available, make sure to see how much storage you need for the Oculus Quest. On the Oculus Quest 2, choosing between the 64GB version and 256GB version comes down almost entirely to how many games you plan to store on the device.
