VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "December 31st 2019 was a special date for me. Before Plague Inc. became a reality for the globe, I was doing the usual rounds for New Year's Eve: social drinking and lighting off fireworks with friends. This year would be different because one friend brought over his Oculus Quest. The previous time I had any sort of experience with VR was the Virtual Boy and perhaps a few unique arcade cabinets. All it took were a few janky Quest mini-games to solidify a newfound respect for the technology as a whole. But the nominees for this award are not mere distractions; they're full experiences that are not only treated as exemplars of a genre but of an entire medium."
