They are still small, but already allow you to transfer to another place or person. Which VR games deserve attention in 2020?
This is a shooter style game that lets you feel like the main character of some action movie. On difficult levels, there are many enemies in the form of red men. Time in the game only moves with the player. This mechanic has proven itself in desktop and console games, and has now been successfully moved to virtual reality.
The game is very similar to the well-known Guitar Hero, but the player wields lightsabers. It is possible to choose the melody you like and cut blocks flying in the direction of the hero to the rhythm with it. Sabers allow you to eliminate those objects that fly directly at the character, and the rest can be dodged. Beat Saber is an example of simple yet intense VR gaming with great performance. It is now one of the most popular games in the world.

One of the first AAA (high-budget) games to be available in virtual reality. All events revolve around the Baker family, who live in a place where mold has appeared that can control the mind. The virus causes the body to mutate and repair itself from severe damage. If you like horror, there is nothing better in virtual reality than Resident Evil 7 right now.
Looking for something relaxing? The 3D platformer is ready to move into a world with cartoon graphics, in which Astro Bot is trying to save his entire team (there are 212 lost robots in total). Head rotations are used to control the camera, which allows you to peer around corners and detect secret areas. Combining the capabilities of a VR headset with gadgets with Dualshock 4 gamepads has resulted in an exclusive PlayStation VR game with the highest rating on Metacritic.
An absolutely unique game that needs a friend to play. The player’s task is to defuse a randomly generated bomb. The peculiarity is that the only way to know how to defuse a charge is to listen to a friend’s instructions. Teamwork and interaction between players is the core of the app. It is very difficult to find another game with a similar concept.
Minecraft still occupies a leading position in popularity in the gaming world. Virtual reality technologies only decorate the game. Most projects remove some of the functionality from the VR version, but not Minecraft. It has all the features of the desktop version, including survival and creative mode.

Only by solving the puzzle can you move on, but it won’t be easy.
