So you’ve just got the new Oculus Quest 2, and you’re wondering what to buy after you’ve exhausted all of the best free games and experiences available on the standalone headset. Whether you’re into active games, puzzles, or just want to slice or shoot the ever-living crap out of something, we’re here to help you settle into your new headset with a few games that should keep you playing for tens of hours yet to come.
Note: Don’t forget that you can also play Rift games with an Oculus Link-compatible USB cable and a VR-ready PC. Find out if your PC is ready for Link. There’s plenty of recent Rift games that are just waiting to be played through Link.
This list below is a great starting point if you’re looking to burn a single Benjamin, although you should definitely check out our list of the best and most rated Oculus Quest games now available, which also includes prices to help you whittle away your hard-earned cash.
Each genre section breaks down pretty close to $100 bucks, which includes games to get your heart pumping, shooter fans, puzzle nerds, and fantasy swordplay geeks.
Get Up & Move
Beat Saber – $30
If you swear you don’t have any rhythm, maybe you’ve never had the chance to slash a pair of light sabers at flying directional blocks before. Rest assured, you’ll find yourself honing your new Jedi skills to heady EDM beats. After a few songs you’ll find it’s a pretty great cardio workout.
Pistol Whip – $25
Although you might think it belongs in the ‘Shooter’ category by virtue of… well… the guns, this is all about keeping flow, dodging, ducking, and diving to the beat of some seriously awesome music. Cloudhead Games has poured a lot of love into Pistol Whip with a bunch of updates that have brought new levels to the game too, making it a must-have if you want to burn some calories without knowing it. Glutes, quads, arms, and cardio.
Racket: Nx – $20
Racket ball-meets-Breakout-meets-multiplayer madness in Racket: Nx. It’s a good thing Quest doesn’t have any cables, because you’ll need the full 360 space to thwack your ball at speed to get those oh so satisfying chain combos. Wear the wrist strap and make sure nothing (and nobody) is in striking distance. You’ll thank us later.
Creed: Rise to Glory – $30
Punch your way to glory in this boxing sim which pits you against AI fighters in both single-player campaign mode or free play. If you find it too easy after a few hours of beating up on AI, online PvP should put you back in your corner. You can try it before you buy it too thanks to the Oculus Store demo. Awesome cardio and an arm workout.
