I’m VERY new to virtual reality games, but I think I’ve found an early contender for my favorite.
Prior to my recent discovery, the two VR games I’d played were Beat Saber and a spellcasting game. Beat Saber is great–you stand in one place and slash incoming blocks with lightsabers while dancing to a variety of fun music. I’m just really bad at it. And the spellcasting game was fun…well, the spellcasting part, at least. Anything involving walking around a 3D space just didn’t work well.
That brings me to BOXVR, which we’ve been playing on our Oculus Quest. Essentially it’s Beat Saber with boxing instead of lightsabers. You stand in one place as blobs of light float towards you, and you try to punch them.
I’m not sure why I like it more than Beat Saber, but there’s something very satisfying to me about feeling like a boxer (without actually having to punch and be punched). Plus, it’s a fantastic workout–the game tracks the calories you’re burning in real time.
What is your favorite VR game?
