Sci-Fi meets fantasy
Take a journey through a crumbled society with Apex Construct. The war between Mother and Father — sentient robots that now hold control over the Earth — is just as interesting as it is mysterious.

Job Simulator is the perfect game to get into VR with. It doesn't require a lot of movement to play, has a lot of things to grab and solve, and is very entertaining! Laugh your way to the credits with these robot bosses and their ridiculous tasks.
Bridge Crew is the closest thing to a Holodeck simulation of a starship that we're likely to see any time soon, and it is extremely well done.

Gotta go fast!
Freeze time, stun your enemies, and send them to early graves in Superhot, where you play a hero caught in a weird blip of time.

Come see why the PlayStation VR has us so captivated
There is something for everyone when it comes to the PlayStation VR, so it can be tough to figure out which game you want to try first. There's also the question of whether you want a story game or something packed with action. Luckily, there's a bit of both in the PSVR library.
For a fun adventure, you'll want to check out Trover Saves the Universe (opens in new tab), which is currently our top pick. It features the over-the-top humor you'd expect from the co-creator of Rick & Morty and bizarre visuals for you to get immersed in.
Or maybe you're looking for something to get yourself up and moving? Then you need Beat Saber. Beat Saber is the best rhythm music game out on the market right now, forcing you to keep up with a steady stream of gestures to all your favorite songs. You don't just wave around two controllers either — you have to duck and dive out of the way of the oncoming obstacles. It's a great way to stay active, but it's also a great party game.
Regardless of whatever game you decide to play from this list, you'll have an amazing time.
