For gamers, virtual reality is no longer a novel concept, but the excitement of using it is still very much alive. More and more people are testing out the top VR games as VR gear become more widely available.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase a list for the 8 best VR games to play in 2023.

1. Beat Saber

Beat Saber is a popular VR game that combines the elements of Star Wars and Guitar Hero in a unique way. Players use glowing lightsabers to slash and hack colored obstacles that come towards them in sync with the chosen track, providing an entertaining and, at times, physically demanding experience. Beat Saber offers a vast selection of tracks that caters to different preferences, including the option to play Linkin Park songs. Overall, it's a must-try for any VR fan.

2. Superhot VR

Superhot has come a long way since it was initially introduced as a browser-based demo almost ten years ago. The game is a shooter title that pits players against a group of enemies, but with a unique twist. In Superhot VR, time only progresses when the player moves, allowing for strategic planning of attacks and dodges.

This gameplay mechanic gives the player a sense of being an efficient assassin. The satisfying gameplay of Superhot VR makes it one of the best shooter games for VR, particularly for those who prefer a less realistic experience.

3. Batman: Arkham VR

If you're seeking the complete Batman experience, it may be better to play the game elsewhere.

However, the Batman: Arkham VR scenario is perfect for those who want to experience a small slice of Arkham's action in virtual reality.

4. Elite: Dangerous VR

Elite: Dangerous has a devoted and active community that has been amazed by the addition of VR support to the game.

In essence, the game is a space flight simulator that allows players to pilot their own ships, collect materials from asteroids, and explore the expanse of space in pursuit of prizes.

Elite: Dangerous also includes multiplayer capabilities, making playing with others much more immersive. With a VR headset, users can live a separate life in space.

5. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

Even though I've played Skyrim previously, experiencing it in virtual reality is a whole other experience. The game can become even more entertaining and wild by adding various mods. Even if the VR version of the game has several flaws, a few mods can greatly enhance it, turning it into one of the best VR experiences available.

The iconic Bethesda game Skyrim remains essentially unchanged when played in virtual reality. Nothing has been added or modified to the game, yet it is extremely charming to be able to travel Tamriel and engage with its characters in a novel way. In addition, facing a dragon in virtual reality is a breathtaking experience that must not be missed.

6. No Man’s Sky VR

This is the ideal time to explore No Man's Sky, and it's even better if you can try it out in virtual reality, if you can look past its troubled background.

The experience is considerably more intense in virtual reality. Although it can be a little disconcerting, playing a space survival game quickly becomes your reality. Zooming across the cosmos while destroying asteroids in virtual reality is simply out of this world.

7. Half Life: Alyx

Platforms: Valve Index, Oculus Rift, Meta Quest 2, HTC Vive

If you own a VR headset, chances are you've been recommended to play Half-Life: Alyx by someone.

As we continue to wait for Half-Life 3, Half-Life: Alyx is the best VR game to hold us over in the meantime. With engaging puzzles, intense shootouts, and a memorable story, players get to battle aliens in visually stunning environments. Upon completion, players can also explore the community content in Half-Life: Alyx's Steam Workshop.

8. Resident Evil 4

Platforms: Meta Quest 2

Resident Evil 4 is widely considered as the best game in the series. Not only does it feature the charming Leon Kennedy as the lead character after proving himself as a rookie cop, but it also takes players to a brand-new location in Spain.

The game's critical acclaim is likely why it's one of the few Resident Evil games officially ported to VR, and the VR version works surprisingly well. To save the president's daughter, you must traverse waves of zombies while controlling Leon in virtual reality.

Furthermore, if you have the VR headset, you can play the much awaited Resident Evil 4 Remake on the impending PS VR2.
