Let’s start with some honorable mentions, followed by our two runners-up, and of course, our winner.
Best VR Games of 2019
Honorable Mention: Asgard’s Wrath
Every conversation about the success or quality of virtual reality usually includes the criticism that there aren’t enough ‘complete game experiences.’ While gimmicky experiences are far from a bad thing, some of the full games are little more than altered version of existing titles.
Asgard’s Wrath, however, is an action RPG like any other you’d expect to see on PC and consoles. It’s tens of hours long, full of complex quests, features exciting and engaging combat, and has an incredibly deep and Norse inspired story.
You’ll make your way through the game’s multiple worlds, taking on enemies, finding items, and gaining access to more areas. All the while, you’ll be coming face to face with familiar characters and exploring a world that’s arguably the best looking on any VR headset.
Also, since Asgard’s Wrath was developed as a VR exclusive, if feels great to play, not suffering from any of the movement issues that the likes of Skyrim VR do.
On top of action RPG gameplay staples, the game makes the most of VR’s capabilities, adding different perspectives and features that wouldn’t be possible in any other medium.
All in all, Asgard’s Wrath is one of the most complete VR experiences around. It has new ideas and incorporates them into an action RPG with a well designed, compelling world and satisfying combat.
