Gaming for now is the leading application of Virtual Reality and with impressive platforms such as Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus ready to hit the stores for the consumers, games offering a brilliant immersive experience were much needed. Luckily there’s a whole lot of quality content available for virtual reality to go on and make us gasp. For now we can’t wait to experience these awesome new games with the latest gizmos.
Paranormal Activity VR
Paranormal Activity VR is a game based on the movie series which had progressively gone bad. It is said that with the release of the sixth installment of the movie later this year the game will be used to tell the rest of the story. The Paranormal Activity Virtual Reality game is most likely to be set in the same theme of video footage with the user roaming around in the creepy haunted house with the demon in pursuit of the player. The movies may have gained a reputation of being bad but the game in VR has all the elements for a perfect horror setting a genre which is getting quite popular with Virtual Reality.
Platform: Oculus Rift, Project Morpheus
Edge of Nowhere
Insomniac Games the creator of Sunset Overdrive, have come up with another marvel Edge of Nowhere which will be released for Oculus Rift. The game is a genius combination of Mountaineering and Survival-horror genre with a third person viewpoint to experience Virtual Reality. The player’s head seems to control the camera and focuses on the characters’ efforts to survive amidst monsters and his diminishing sanity. Although the game has so far impressed the audiences but it could possibly become an unsettling experience for the users.
Platform: Oculus Rift
Not a usual adventure game one has to admit, The Deep has brought the ocean’s most dangerous and scary predator-Shark in VR. Only a demo of the game is available for now which shows the player in the confines of a cage while a Great White Shark attacks the cage at the same. It is undoubtedly the most terrifying experience to see a big toothy shark trying to break into the cage. It is also said that the game will have the player to break free from the cage in a virtual hide and seek with the scary predator.
Platform: Project Morpheus
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Well, we have to give it to this one for being the most unconventional game ever. Keep talking and nobody explodes is a game that assigns the player the task of defusing a Bomb while reading out loud the instructions on how it is to be done. The existence of the game in VR makes it an overall intense experience and is also one of the best uses of the tech.
Platform: Gear VR
The game is developed for Microsoft Hololens which works to project virtual images over the real world images or objects. The game is an extended and augmented reality version of the Mojang’s ultra popular sandbox game. The game in order to be played will also require a big headset to be worn and you will be watching over your own Minecraft world like a God.
