Congratulations on your Oculus Rift purchase. Of course you want to dive into anything and everything VR has to offer. Here are some great VR experiences and best of all they are free.
Although the Oculus Rift includes some kick-ass games with your purchase, why not download a couple more especially for the price of free. Here’s a short list, which will probably grow a little as I add more, of what I think are some of the must have free games for the Oculus Rift. All games are available on the Oculus Store unless otherwise noted:
12/30/2017 – Added Accounting, The Lab
Has nothing to do with Accounting, but it is hilarious. Short but free.
Never thought flying around would be such an incredibly immersive experience.
A short game, basically the precursor of Robo Recall.
Not really a game, but a nice little cinematic demo. Great to show first time VR users.
Ender’s Game in VR.
Google Maps in a whole new experience. Recently updated to include street view.
Travel to space and explore the ISS.
Social game with recreation room type games.
The Lab (Steam)
A compilation of Valve’s room-scale VR experiments.
Another social game where you can create custom avatars.
Zombie Riot No Longer Free Like Robo Recall, but instead of shooting robots you shoot zombies.
These are just some of the few games that I have come across in the early days of owning my Oculus Rift. Hopefully this will provide you a great starting point for virtual reality. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any other recommendations.
