Playing a game in desktop-class virtual reality is unique. There's an emotional component that's tough to describe no matter how talented you are with words. The way your whole body moves to dodge the projectile headed your way, or that feeling when adrenaline kicks in and the music in the background becomes the choreographer for everything you're doing in the game. It's intense and fantastic, but the right game can take this experience to an entirely new level.
Here are five games you must have for the HTC Vive, no matter what kind of gamer you are.

I told my wife I'm going to need one soon. It'll be a big investment, as I don't even have a desktop right now. But, she was all for it after seeing the zombie demo.
I just tried one today with the zombie game... my God, it was amazing. If you were sold after seeing the video it will blow your mind when you try it!
Where did you play it?
Not a game but tilt brush is getting a lot of attention Posted via the Android Central App
Guys! You forgot Irrational Exuberance, the FREE htc vive game
Consider this my Vive "Starter pack"? no ******* way. How patronising. This list is **** tbh. Unseen Diplomacy requires 4m x 3m space way above minimum requirements. Job Sim comes with the Vive, pointless recommendation. There's no sign of Budget Cuts, Pool Nation VR, Vanishing Realms, Call of the Starseed or H3VR. It's like the list you'd make if you had no f-ing clue with the exceptions of Holopoint + Audioshield. Consider this your STFU "starter pack".
It should be mentioned that Job Simulator is free with the Vive. Instead of putting it on the list, maybe that item should just be "All the free stuff." There's a ton of free content, a lot of which is really good. Also, no Hover Junkers? Space Pirate Trainer?
