Among the several hundred games and apps on the Meta Quest storefront, most of them cost between $10 and $40 while only offering about three to five hours of gameplay on average. No one wants to spend money on junk games or experiences with low value, and that's where our team of VR fanatics comes in!
We spend a lot of leisure time blocking out reality with the Meta Quest 3, and our picks for the best Oculus Quest games, as the headset was once known, come personally recommended. We attached our names to our absolute favorites in each category, so you know we played and judged them for ourselves before endorsing them. Some games even have demos so you can try before you buy!
From action and exercise to horror and puzzle games — and even some App Lab and Oculus Link games thrown in for good measure — here are our favorite Meta Quest games in each category. Use the drop-down menu above to jump straight to your section of choice.
Also, don't forget to check out the list of upcoming Oculus Quest games! We update it every month so you're sure to find plenty of fresh titles coming soon that'll wet your whistle.
