Among the several hundred games and apps on the Oculus Quest storefront, most of them cost between $10 and $40 while only offering about 3 to 5 hours of gameplay on average. The Oculus Store isn't like Steam, where you can build up huge libraries for cheap; and 64GB headset owners have to be careful not to fill up their hard drives with junk.
The fact is, most VR games are short, when what you want is short and sweet. That's where we come in: Android Central has a staff full of VR fanatics who spend their leisure time blocking out reality with the Oculus Quest 2 — which does run on an Android OS, believe it or not. We've spent a lot of time testing out games, good and bad, to figure out which are the best Oculus Quest 2 games that we'd actually recommend.
Here are our top recommendations and personal favorites, whether you want to be scared to death, keep your kids entertained, play with friends and family online or locally, or keep yourself fit while stuck indoors. We've broken them down into specific categories and genres, which you can access directly via our jumplist. If one of your favorites isn't there, feel free to shout them out in the comments, and we'll give them a spin and see if they're worth including!
We update this list regularly with new VR games guaranteed to blow your minds. It was last updated on April 30 with a new category (Multiplayer shooters) and two new selections: Contractors (Multiplayer shooters) and Cosmonious High (family-friendly)
