Best VR Game of 2023

VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "2023 was a notable year for VR hardware, with both Sony's PSVR2 and Meta's Meta Quest 3 arriving on the scene. Both of them have primarily earned a considerable amount of praise for their technological advancements, but that's not to say their software output was extinct. Granted, early adoption tends to favor older ports with improved visuals and new controller/headset gimmicks; it comes with the territory. But within that flow of ports and updates came an exclusive for each respective platform reaching our shortlist. It's too early to tell if that presages a bountiful surplus of future masterclass VR games, but it's a welcoming sign all the same."

“Horizon Call of the Mountain” had more bells and whistles and has some wow moments for VR newbies. But I had more fun playing “Synapse”.

DaleCooper127d ago

Synapse was my VR GOTY. Such a great game.

coolbeans126d ago

Damn. I want to try that one soon.

Leeroyw127d ago

Red Matter 2 was it for me. The visuals, scope and writing was incredible.

coolbeans126d ago

Another one I missed from last year.

DaleCooper123d ago

Just picked this up, can't wait to play it!

coolbeans126d ago

Don't spoil the surprise for everyone. ;)

I wish Capcom would upgrade Resident Evil7 to be playable on PSVR2.

babadivad146d ago

I said I was gonna try PSVR this time around but I still haven't forced myself to take the plunge yet.

Do it when you have the time space and money. Think it through. It’s so worth it though.

The_Hooligan146d ago

I am thinking about purchasing PSVR2. I tried the headset and it felt comfortable even with me wearing glasses but it was only for like 15 mins. I didn't try it for a long time. So the only thing keeping me hesitant about making the jump to VR is not knowing how it would feel wearing glasses and playing VR for like an hour or two. Also, have you tried playing non-VR games with the headset. Meaning can you play spiderman with the headset. I know it won't be in VR but can you still use the headset to play regular games. Just curious to know what that is like.

@The_Hooligan

I don't really recommend non VR games in the headset. It's much more blurry than even a 1080p screen I would say. Although it does work.

As someone who did wear glasses in VR and also struggled with the sweet spot a bit, I recommend getting HonsVR prescription lenses and especially the Globular Cluster comfort mod to help comfort and keeping the sweet spot.

Thanks so much for the info. Much appreciated. Happy gaming! 😊

Same, I bought PSVR1 and pretty much every AAA studio took a shot at making games for it but on PSVR2 it is just Sony and a sea of indie Quest ports which doesn't justify a premium $550 tag. I really want to play more VR but most of the software is pure garbage. I wouldn't even get $550 dollars worth of entertainment if you go by the dollar per hour metric for fun, it just isn't there. the few good games on it might get you close to 100 if you are hardcore.

I think Sony should have made their headset standalone with comparable or better power than the Quest. That would have gotten rid of the PS5 entry price and got non PS players involved too. But an added premium feature could have been to go wired with a PS5 if you have one for those few premium AAA games that can only run on a PS5.

Loads of awesome games , if you ONLY think a few titles good games are out then VR was never for you.
The problem is gamers think every game released would have a VR hybrid version and that's the gamers 1st mistake.
VR2 is about a year old and I have over 20 games I really enjoy and put plenty of hours into.

EvertonFC146d ago

"force yourself".

That right there is WHY you shouldn't bother.
I love VR but if your going to force yourself then you are already going into VR negatively.

ChasterMies146d ago

Winter is a good time to try PSVR2. I just look outside and I’m ready to strap on a headset and stand uncomfortably for an hour.

1nsomniac146d ago

As a launch day owner in its current state it’s not worth it unfortunately. Almost a year later and it’s still missing even the most very basic of features. And it seems to be pretty dead on arrival. It has great promise but as usual it was ditched out the door by Sony.

Abnor_Mal146d ago

Just curious to know what basic features PSVR2 is still missing?

1nsomniac144d ago

You can’t even watch 3D videos on it. I mean seriously it’s a VR headset and it can’t watch VR movies!

It sounds more and more stupid each time I even hear myself say it. Imagine designing it that way! It’s absolutely insane that something that basic is missing. That’s VR 101, literally every other headset starts with that basic function. PSVR2 STILL can’t even do that!

Yeah that’s a strange one. Maybe they don’t like racing games.

Abnor_Mal146d ago

There’s so many PSVR games that need an upgrade to PSVR2, the cumbersome Move controllers did limit the enjoyment of some games.

darthv72146d ago

i just recently found that i could use the move gun attachments for rush of blood and that made a huge difference in playability. I only wish that was upgraded to the VR2 along with Vader immortal.
