After seeing the top games launched with the Quest, we wanted to show the best games for the Oculus Quest currently. There are many games to choose from and others that are currently being beta tested. As more and more games are launched, here is our choice for the top Oculus Quest Games.
Best Quest Games
“A serene, mystical journey that traverses a series of otherworldly, organic landscapes, Fujii is a respite for weary travelers. The experience flows between outdoor exploration and creative gardening, merging aspects of adventure and cultivation into a refreshing, musically enveloping whole.”
Fujii is a great game to enjoy with beautiful and unique art. Explore nature and vivid environments that make this game relaxing and immersive.
29. Fruit Ninja
“The juiciest, most action-packed burst of fruit-filled fun is here! Re-imagined by the immersive power of virtual reality, Fruit Ninja on the Oculus Quest brings you closer to the action than ever before.”
Fruit Ninja is a game you have to try in VR, especially if you played on your phone years ago. It’s a short arcade game and great for whenever you’re bored. As time runs out, it’s hard to not panic and just swing your swords around.
“In Ultrawings, you’ll pilot multiple aircraft using your virtual hands to interact with the flight stick and instruments to complete tons of missions while soaring around beautiful islands.”
If you ever wanted to fly a plane in VR, this game is for you. Although the scenery is cartoony, it is still a fun arcade game with great controls that will make you come back to. There are many missions to play and can be very relaxing.
“In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a virtual room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out –fast!”
This is one of the best games to play with multiple people. The anxiety and stress everyone feels are real and as Tyriel Wood points out, “It’s the best party game period. When you have people over it’s a must, but you have to print the instructions.”
26. PokerStars VR
“PokerStars, the world’s leading poker brand, has combined live and online poker in a truly immersive VR experience.”
If you’re into Poker, this is the most fun you’ll have with it. Be transported into a virtual realm to play others with very well-made interactions. You’ll make new friends and have great experiences with this game.
“SWORDS of GARGANTUA is a cross-platform VR online action game. Fight solo or join up to 3 others in online co-op against a hoard of enemies and their master, the towering titan named GARGANTUA.”
One of the best co-op game in the market right now. With great gameplay and amazing sword mechanics, you’re guaranteed to have a good experience. There is a vast amount of content to go through which will make you come back to this game.
24. Shadow Point
“Built for VR, Shadow Point is a story-driven puzzle game set between a mountaintop observatory and an ever-changing fantasy world. Explore a vibrant kingdom, cast shadows and solve mind-bending puzzles as you uncover the mystery of missing schoolgirl, Lorna McCabe who vanished from Shadow Point Observatory twelve years ago.”
This game is so immersive and a good choice for getting into VR. There are many unique puzzles to pass and a lot of attention to detail in the art and story. The scenery is very vivid and becomes a relaxing yet enjoyable game.
23. Apex Construct
“Apex Construct is a story-driven, single-player VR action/adventure. Wield an upgradable bow & shield combination to battle enemy robots while exploring and solving mysteries in a shattered world.”
The graphics are beautiful and the controls run smoothly. It’s a complete game that will keep you entertained for hours and have a lot of problems to solve with a ton of action on the way. It’s very fun using a bow in Apex Construct since it’s very immersive and well-made.
“Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future.”
The music and visuals in this game are amazing. The rhythm and backgrounds are clean and will make you constantly want to come back to this game. This game can be compared to Beat Saber and a great fast-paced game.
“Experience a thrilling story told across three chapters. Get up close and personal with all-new melee weapons! Hack off limbs and hurl axes at the shuffling undead. Deflect spitter slime with baseball bats and hit a home run with a zombie’s head!”
Drop Dead is a fantastic co-op game that is very well-made despite having a few minor problems. Killing zombies have never this much fun and we definitely recommend more people try.
“Dead and Buried II is a fast-paced multiplayer shooter set in a supernatural western world. Grab your six-shooters and go head-to-head in various game modes. Compete against real players online to see who is the best gunslinger! The game is a sequel to the popular Dead and Buried released on Rift and GO.”
With their shootout mode and other fun features, it is a great game for anyone to try. It can be a very competitive game or a laid back game depending on how you play. The mechanics for this game are smooth and realistic.
“How long have these goggles been pressing into my flesh? What began as a small game jam between William Pugh (The Stanley Parable), Dominik Johann (Minit) and Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty) is now—two years later—an aberration of warped technology, weird worlds, and strange, disturbing creatures.”
Accounting+ is one of the funniest games I’ve played in a while. It’s edgy humor and fun characters make this game a must-have for anyone looking to laugh in VR.
18. Bigscreen Beta
“WATCH movies with friends in a virtual movie theater. PLAY your favorite PC video games on a huge screen. HANG OUT in social VR chat rooms. EVENTS like weekly 3D Movie Nights and VR LAN parties!”
The most memorable moments in VR are with actual people and Bigscreen is a great way to see this. Playing a video to stir conversation and meet new people truly shows the connections VR can make.
“Ever wanted to be a cyber ninja? A top-selling VR game and probably the best cyber ninja simulator ever, Sairento VR offers you that opportunity! Perform quadruple jumps, wall runs, power slides backflips and even get to manipulate time. Empty lead into an enemy before spinning around to sink your blade into another.

You will feel like a badass when you play this game. There are so many weapons and missions to choose from, you can easily put hours into this game without noticing. It uses the Quest’s no wires very well and calls for a very immersive experience.
“The chaos moon is coming, threatening the peaceful inhabitants of the land. It’s up to you to unlock the power of the gods in your battle against the encroaching darkness. Become the hero in this first-person, legendary VR quest against the forces of evil.”
Journey of the Gods is a awesome game that is beautifully designed. As stated by Tyriel Wood, “Journey of the Gods is great for the atmosphere and vibe, I really liked the art design and the god mechanics, even if I wished there was a bow instead of the crossbow”.
“Space Pirate Trainer is the official trainer for wannabe space pirates. Remember those awesome classic arcade cabinets? Imagine if those were immersive… Space Pirate Trainer puts you in one of those; fighting off relentless waves of droids with all the weapons and gadgets you would ever need as a Space Pirate. You better dodge some of those incoming lasers though, since just using your shields won’t get you in the top rankings. Pick up your blasters, put on your sneakers, and dance your way into the Space Pirate Trainer hall of fame.
This game is perfect for people wanting to see the capabilities of VR. Now on the Quest, the game got even more fun by not having a wire follow you around. It’s so satisfying dodging bullets and great for arcade action.
14. Sports Scramble
“Take your favorite sports and mix them together! Play Tennis with a Golf Club. Bowl a strike with a Basketball. Smash a Home Run with a Hockey Stick! Each of the three main sports: Tennis, Bowling, and Baseball have their own Single-Player Training, QuickPlay, and Challenge Modes. And don’t forget to go online and compete against other Sports Scramblers in a myriad of multiplayer modes. Run around a large court in Tennis.

There are thousands of player-created game and event rooms for you to discover, with new ones added daily. You can even build your own rooms with your friends.
