This title very quickly became not only my favorite VR shooter, but my favorite VR game overall. The graphics are stunning and futuristic, and the story is absolutely captivating. Here you'll take on the role of a refugee of a world that has long since fallen to two sentient robots named Mother and Father. You'll have to solve puzzles and unlock the mystery of what happened to humanity so you can save it.
Test your logic: Firewall Zero Hour
There are 12 different options at character creation and an arsenal of weapons to choose from. Each character has a different job to complete so you'll have complete say in what kind of job you wish to do for this make-believe military! There is even a multiplayer mode that allows up to eight players to play together in 4x4 teams! This title is also one of the few PSVR games that are compatible with the Aim Controller.
Brains, brains, brains!: Killing Floor: Incursion
Who doesn't love a good horror game? This title brings fear to life in a way you've never experienced before. Zombies of all types are jumping toward you at terrifying speeds and it's much more terrifying to experience in a VR headset. If you want to get to the next level you need to complete puzzles, explore the maps, and collect all the tools required to secure your survival. Are you up for the challenge?
Infested space station: DOOM VFR
DOOM VFR will surely get your heart racing with how terrifying it is. You play as a Union drone who is completing your obligations to the corporation— even in death. The graphics alone are realistic enough to make you forget you're inside of a game and the graphics help the gameplay run even smoother. This title is also one of the few PSVR games that are compatible with the Aim Controller!
Plays like an action movie: Superhot
This title gives you the chance to feel like the action hero you've always wanted to. You get to kill the enemies, avoid their bullets, and look like an absolute bad-ass the entire time. You can even use objects in the room to help you in your endeavors. Did I mention this all happens while time is either frozen or in slow motion? It's wild but requires a lot of focus.
Teamwork makes the dreamwork: Bravo Team
It will always require a good team to survive a war. If you're looking for a multiplayer game you can use with your VR headset you found it. Each decision could affect the outcome of the game so it's incredibly fun to strategize with friends. There are solo options as well. The goal of the story? Preserve your team while an entire country around you crumbles like a cookie.
Always more zombeis: Arizona Sunshine
Surviving a post-apocalyptic world seems hard enough. Could you imagine doing it in the middle of the desert while you're surrounded by a bunch of zombies? Well, that's exactly where Arizona Sunshine puts you. Test your survival skills (and try not to pee yourself) with this phenomenal title that's perfect for anyone who is a big fan of horror.
New games breathe life into us all
Nothing makes a shooting game feel more immersive than throwing on a VR headset and having to make realistic hand motions to control your gun. If I'm going to play a first-person shooter on anything my first choice will always be in my favorite headset. After you experience the type of gameplay the PSVR offers you'll never look back. That's why Apex Contruct will be my favorite VR game for a long time coming. Not only was is it a phenomenal shooting game made to blow your mind, but the story was mind-blowing and the mysterious feel of the environment had the gears of my brain constantly turning.
