Forums - Gaming Discussion - PSVR games to get myself for Xmas

I picked up a PSVR bundle (with Superhot and Creed) Thursday night.  So, I have all of the hardware.  Now I need a couple game recommendations.  I've spent a fair amount of time using all of the major VR headsets, but PS is the one I've used the least.  I've grown to like many of the new and different experiences available in VR, so I think I'm open to just about anything.  I'll give extra consideration to games that have been out for a while, so I can get them on the cheap.  

Beyond that, I'll add that I don't care about the length of the game (so long as it's not a $60 game that's over in an hour, or something like that).  I just want some good stuff to play.  So, please, suggest away.

(I put this in gaming discussion, rather than PS. There's a lot of cross-platform stuff in VR, and I'm not intending this thread to discuss anything other than games. So, I don't see a need to limit it to PlayStation. If mods feel differently, I'm not going to cry about it being moved to PlayStation discussion.)



Without knowing what you've already played on PC I'll just give you a list of my must plays regardless of platform and in no particular order...
Blasters of the universe.
Wipout Ogema Collection.
Astrobot rescue mission.
Rush of blood.
Beat saber.
Moss.
The persistence.
Sculptr VR
Farpoint..
Sprint vector.
Windlands.
Ultrawings.
PsvR worlds.
Thumper.
Starblood arena (even if it's only populated with bots now.)

And if you have money to spare a few that aren't mist plays but incredibly fun...

Lethal VR.
Operation warcade
Shooty fruity.
Pixel gear.
Mortal blitz.
Raw data.
Apex construct.
Doom VFR (if you use DS4 instead of moves)
Driveclub VR.

And a few that don't fit into either catagory but are technically impressive or just innovative enough to their genre to warrent a sale purchase...

GTsport (Just worth it for the experience of having a garage with hundreds of cars but you'll have to play the flat game to expand VR content)
The invisible hours (Massively innovative to visual novels/walking simulators)
To the top. (Innovative platformer like Windlands but with more satisfying goals)
Catch and release (best fishing game ever)
Pixel ripped (Really meta experience)

There are so mamy more and if you're anything like me, you'll just buy everything that isn't reported to be trash at some point or another.



I just ordered Wipeout Omega Collection.  It had been on my radar a one point, but I forgot about it until the reminder here.  I'm interested to try it in both VR and ''flat" mode.

BEAT SABER
BEAT SABER
AND MORE BEAT SABER.

I've put abput 15-20 hours into in the last few days and it is one of my GoAT. Something so simple yet so much fun and a high skill ceiling plus it's only 30 euro. Utterly fantastic and I know for a fact, it'll be something O'll be playing along with MGS1 and 2, Warcraft 3, starcraft, theme hospoyal and super mario 3 for life. Could not recommendit more.

I would love to play it yet i need my back to get better first. That looks way too risky in my current state. I can hardly play Tetris Effect atm :(
Eurogamer just put a review up. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-11-23-beat-saber-is-yet-another-must-play-game-for-the-psvr

So, it's better than sprint vector? I could not get along with that game, worked very badly.

That sucks man. I had the same thing happen during the summer and had to quite VR and training for like three months, couldn't even play the persistence with how the angle of the camera. It'll be waiting for ya when you return to normal :D It's miles better than sprint vector, that was fun but not as addicting or as satisfying as beat saber, It's also just the right ammount of physical activity to keep you hooked without burning you out physically, I did nearly 6 hours at it's midnight release, it hooks you instantly and won't let go. There are DLC packs coming with more music so when you do pick it up, there'll be more content even though the 16 songs os more than enough in my opinion for dozens of hours worth of beating sabers as expert difficulty is an actual challenge. It's just fantastic. 

I wouldn't recommend it with your back though as you will have to bend at the knee at times on hard or expert as well as side stepping or leaning to get better positioning and avoid obstacles. 



I'll write a longer list later, but this week I had very much fun with the puzzle game "Transpose".

You move some objects, choose a new starting point (sometimes with different gravitational direction) and turn the time back. Then you can watch your former actions performed by ghosts of yourself and can interact with them to solve some impossible tasks. The number of ghosts is limited of course.

Best puzzles since Portal 2... Portal meets Braid



Astrobot, I have been waiting for a game like this since the day I purchased PSVR.
