The importance of virtual reality technology and their games has increased recently, thanks to Meta’s announcement of its interest in it and its development of a Metaverse version based on it.
However, Meta is not the only company interested in developing virtual reality helmets or software based on it, and virtual reality games are one of the first virtual reality applications that we have seen from many companies.
There are a lot of different games that belong to a lot of different categories that depend on virtual reality technologies.
These games come from large companies such as Sony or independent companies that are developing their own projects with their own technologies.
Virtual reality games require a special compatibility with helmets, different from the usual games and controllers.
As a result, Sony’s VR games that rely on its VR headset will not work with PC VR headsets.
In the list that we mention to you below, you will find a group of games that work with all VR headsets for PC.
Beat Saber game:
This game is one of the most popular virtual reality games available for PC and PlayStation as well.
It has a simple and clear gameplay which makes it suitable for all age groups and all users without any previous gaming experience.
The game plays music clips in the background and puts in front of you a set of cubes and barriers that you have to avoid or destroy depending on their type, and the speed of these cubes and barriers varies according to the speed of the music clip and the type of song or music playing in the background.
The game’s music library includes many unique titles from various artists around the world and their most popular tracks.
This game works with the Oculus Quest 1/2, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive Pro, Valve Index and Playstation VR helmets.

The game includes more than 32 different tracks of different types of music with a large collection of additional tracks for download.
But the game has recently stopped receiving updates and new tracks, and there is no obvious way to add your own tracks to it.

Resident Evil 4 VR
Resident Evil 4 is back in a new form, but this time with virtual reality technology, you find yourself trapped in a world full of monsters and you have to defeat them.
The game has transformed the usual gameplay inside it into a style suitable for virtual reality helmets so that you feel like you are living inside this adventure.
This means that the perspective of the game has changed to become from the perspective of the first person, in addition to the need to perform various functions within the game manually, such as changing the weapon cache or holding a weapon lying on the ground.
And this becomes very difficult and terrifying when you find yourself surrounded by hordes of zombies and need to reload your weapon.

Half life Alyx game:
When Valve announced the return of the beloved Half life series with a new game that follows the old story of the series, the world went crazy.

Star Wars Squadron:
You can enjoy this game even if you don’t have a VR helmet, as the game works with all the usual platforms.
But the fun of the game and flying the much loved Star Wars series planes increases when you use a VR helmet.
The game is characterized by its great attention to the small details inside the planes and the experience of driving them, which gives you the feeling that you are actually sitting in the cockpit.
The game also offers a distinct and long story that makes it guaranteed to be enjoyed by all users even if they are not a fan of the series.
