Best VR Shooting Games of 2021

Virtual reality headsets are only as good as the experiences they offer. Lose yourself in the best action, arcade, exploration, simulation, and sports VR games for the HTC Vive, Oculus Quest 2, PlayStation VR, Valve Index, and Windows Mixed Reality platforms. The concept of virtual reality (VR) has been around for several decades, but, until recently, even the best VR headsets were not very accessible to consumers from either a cost or usability standpoint. 

Astro Bot Rescue Mission

Platform: PlayStation VR

In this action platformer, you must rescue the various members of your crew, which is scattered across space. The game offers 20 different main levels and 26 challenge levels, which should keep you entertained for a long time. This isn’t a simple platforming title. The game features 360-degree worlds and offers several different weapons, including throwing stars, a water gun, and a hook shot.

Beat Saber

Platforms: HTC Vive; Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and Rift S; PlayStation VR; Valve Index; Windows Mixed Reality

Beat Saber is a music and rhythm game with an active twist. The setup is similar to other music games, such as Audiosurf, Guitar Hero, and Rock Band, but instead of controlling a virtual ship or using fake instruments, you slash your way through a song with virtual laser swords. As the music plays, Beat Saber generates different patterns of color-coded blocks on the screen that you must hit with the correct controller (right or left) as they slide towards you. Obstacles also appear at times that require you to duck or slide away. Make no mistake, Beat Saber is not a game you can play sitting down; it’s a very active experience. If you love music and motion, Beat Saber is definitely worth exploring.

Budget Cuts

Platforms: HTC Vive; Oculus Quest; Oculus Rift and Rift S; Valve index

Will you let robots take your all-important paper-stamping and document-filing job? In this game, cost-cutting robots try to terminate your employment by any means necessary. You must fight your way through an office environment to save your job (and your life) using stealth tactics or by resorting to aggressive violence. AI and automation technologies are certainly poised to take over some real-world jobs previously filled by humans, so this game’s hook is all too real. Be sure to check out the sequel, Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency.

Danger Goat

Platform: Windows Mixed Reality

The life of a goat has never been easy, as you may have experienced first-hand in the one-of-a-kind Goat Simulator. Danger Goat is arguably less bizarre, but with traps, missiles, and robots standing in your way, your escape is anything but assured. Don’t be fooled by the bright and pleasant environments; danger lurks at every turn.

Everybody’s Golf VR – PlayStation 4

Platform: PlayStation VR

If you can’t get to a real golf course, the next best thing is a virtual golf game. Everybody’s Golf VR is the series’ (formerly known as Hot Shots Golf) first VR entry. Play any of three included courses alongside a virtual caddy or practice your skills on the putting green or at the driving range. The game supports the PlayStation Move controller for more dynamic golfing action.

Farpoint

Platform: PlayStation VR

Farpoint is a showcase title for the PS4’s VR capabilities and the first game to use the PS VR Aim, a gun-shaped controller specifically designed for first-person shooters. Sony says the VR Aim is capable of tracking player movements on a 1:1 scale, which creates a realistic feel to the game’s shooting mechanics. In Farpoint, you must survive deadly enemy encounters while traversing a dangerous alien environment in an effort to discover what happened to the rest of your research team. Farpoint is a relatively short experience, but it’s still worthwhile for PlayStation owners.
