The Oculus Quest 2 (Or as it’s now called, Meta Quest 2) has proven to be one of the most impressive steps forward for the VR industry since it started to pick up in the past decade. It’s made VR more accessible & more affordable than it has ever been before. Below will be a detailed cherry-picked list of what we believe are some of the top Oculus Quest 2 games available to purchase on your Quest/ Quest 2 device today.

If you think a game deserves to be on this list, we’ve forgotten to include, please do not hesitate to tell us in the comments. Sometimes you find hidden gems out there, and we want everyone to know about them.

We’ll be covering all the details of each game, including the comfort level and supported platforms, while also linking you to the developer’s and publisher’s sites if you want to check out more of their titles.

1. Beat Saber

Let’s start with one of the most popular titles, Beat Saber. This game has proven to be a massive success over the past few years, both with VR Enthusiasts and beginners alike. Considering the game price, at only $30, it’s a steal.

It’s worth noting that many of the music packs aren’t free. But you get a hefty and enjoyable amount of songs to play for free. The developers are currently releasing music packs every couple of months to appease regulars.

These music packs include famous artists such as Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish, Fallout Boy, Panic at the Disco, Imagine Dragons, Skrillex, etc. You’re sure to find an artist you love in this game.

The game does require plenty of physical movement, so make sure you have a silicone face cover for your Quest headset. If you don’t have one, you can order one for free here on the official Oculus website, but only if your device is eligible for one.

If you’re not eligible, there are plenty available to purchase over at VR Cover.

2. Blade & Sorcery

Blade & Sorcery is an incredible & entertaining simulator for sword fighting, magic casting, and even medieval combat. This is your game if you’re looking to exert some energy and whack some virtual individuals over the head and fight in arenas.

Blade & Sorcery is quite intense to play for more extended periods, especially if you’re not used to playing in VR, so we recommend taking frequent breaks where possible to avoid motion sickness.

The game is updated often, even after years of being released. They’re still introducing new content, and if that doesn’t satisfy you, you can mod the game to your liking by adding new custom items made by the Nexus community.

3. Superhot VR

Superhot is easily one of the most successful VR games released recently. It’s also still one of the It’s fun. In this game, you’ll find yourself standing in a fixed position. The slower you move, the slower time moves.

You’ll have several people coming toward you trying to attack you. Your goal is to defeat all of these people as swiftly as possible without getting hit. If you get hit, you restart the level.

4. Drunkn Bar Fight

Drunkn Bar Fight is, quite literally, exactly what it sounds like. You play as an individual on a level of your choice, and you start fights with anyone and everyone you want to. You can use anything within the bar at your disposal, from broken bottles to pool cues and darts.

It’s quite the stress-relieving game because you get to beat up people you don’t like the look of with no repercussions from doing it. Throw chairs if you want, even gumball machines. The creativity is quite endless with this.

It’s quite an intense experience, so if you’re new to VR, consider trying other more comfortable or moderate rated games to avoid motion sickness.

5. Gorn

Gorn is quite a gory game. Gory, in a very unrealistic sense, though, so don’t worry too much. You’re a gladiator don’t arena (very straightforward, yes), and you have other gladiators. Your goal is to kill them all. It’s pretty challenging and also quite intense in parts.

You’ll work up a sweat playing this game, so make sure you have your Oculus silicone cover on the headset that keeps your face cover nice, clean and sweat-free. You can always request one from Meta themselves if you don’t have one, but only if eligible.

6. Arizona Sunshine

Arizona Sunshine is the perfect zombie VR game everyone wanted when VR first became popular amongst average consumers. You wield weapons from pistols to knives and other weapons. You venture yourself or with a friend through Arizona to deal with zombies to survive.

It’s very linear and straightforward, but that fits perfectly with this game and is very entertaining. It provides quite a challenge to those new to VR while also keeping a comfortable VR play rating, so as long as you have the correct gameplay settings, you won’t experience much motion sickness.

This game is one of the main titles that Meta uses to advertise on their Oculus Quest games marketplace, so we wouldn’t be at all surprised if this is one most people have already played.

7. Pistol Whip

Quite similar to SuperHot VR but much faster paced and more chaotic. In Pistol Whip, you move throughout the game levels while dodging bullets and shooting people simultaneously.

Imagine a retro VR game with John Wick & The Matrix elements mushed into one game. That’s Pistol Whip. It’s enjoyable and, in our opinion, is one of those must-buy Oculus Quest games to experience in VR.

This game will also work up a sweat, so make sure you have that silicone face cover handy to avoid any face irritation with your headset.

8. The Climb

The Climb 2 is a vast improvement upon the first game, which was still a fantastic game in its own right. Crytek has done a great job with the second instalment in the franchise.

The game involves scaling specific structures and environments to climb to the top. A significant difference between the first and second games is the interactive environments you’ll encounter.

From venomous encounters with snakes while rock climbing to switching billboards while scaling skyscrapers throughout the city. This game will test your quick thinking capabilities.

Also, one of the main games that Meta uses to advertise on the front page of their Oculus Quest games marketplace. This game is one of those that Meta (and us) insist you give a go, especially if you’re scared of heights and want to get over that fear.

9. Moss

Probably the cutest and one of the most admirable storytelling titles throughout the entire Oculus Quest games marketplace. Moss has you helping a courageous little heroic mouse on a mystical adventure.

Moss is the perfect title if you like wholesome adventures and want a very comfortable experience playing VR. It has a second instalment on the way as the first has proven very popular over the time of its release, so you’re getting invested in a beautiful, continuous story if you decide to try this title out.

10. Population: One

Probably the best battle royale title for VR that’s been made so far. Many developers have made battle royale titles for VR platforms, but none have done it as well as the very talented people over at BigBox VR, Inc.

You can play with up to three other friends as a squad of 4, doing what you’d typically do in a battle royale. Just in VR instead (of course), you can climb any surface and deploy covers in the middle of the street for hiding there under fire. You have the entire environment at your disposal.

11. Job Simulator

Job Simulator quite literally does what it says in the title. Albeit with a little bit more fun than a real job. Okay, maybe a lot more fun. It’s one of the most popular titles that people buy with a new Oculus Quest VR headset, and there’s a reason for that!

It’s tons of fun to play, whether you’re a hardcore VR enthusiast or putting on a VR headset for the very first time. This game is easy and comfortable enough to bring a fun and enjoyable experience to anyone playing it.

12. Hand Physics Lab

Oculus has recently released its new highly anticipated hand tracking technology with the Quest headset. You’ll need no controllers for the game. You can use your hands. It’s as simple as that.

We found it a peculiar experience. It was just very new and threw us off balance playing a game with our actual hands in a video game.

The game has you solving what appears to be straightforward puzzles, but you will most likely find yourself struggling with more than a few of them.

We’re so excited to see where this hand-tracking technology will bring us in the future and what games will incorporate this into their gameplay.

13. Onward

Onward was one of the first titles released on the Oculus Quest games marketplace. It’s a military warfare title and has you playing either yourself or with friends.

It does an excellent job of simulating warfare in VR. Not quite enough to be called a realistic simulator, but it is one of the most authentic simulating experiences made so far in the VR industry.

It can provide a lot of fun when you play with friends, so we recommend playing with friends if at all possible.

14. Resident Evil 4

Resident Evil 4 is one of those legendary titles that any gamer will tell you that you need to experience at some point if you’re passionate about games. It’s now released in VR, and you can experience the entire game with it.

There has been some content cut from the original game, so if you’re interested in getting the whole story, we recommend you try the original version of the game without VR and then try the VR title afterwards.

Even with the cut content (which isn’t that much), the game is still fantastic to play in its own right.


Oculus/Meta headset is a fantastic investment for anyone interested in being immersed in games or those who are intrigued with virtual reality.

We think these games are some of the best Oculus Quest 2 games out there right now that you can play. If you believe there are any games we’ve missed that you think should be on the list. Then please let us know in the comments below.
