While Oculus doesn’t offer much publicly in the way of understanding how well individual games & apps are performing across its Quest 2 storefront, it’s possible to glean some insight by looking at apps relative to each other. Here’s a snapshot of the 20 best rated Oculus Quest games and apps as of July 2022.

Some quick qualifications before we get to the data:

  • Paid and free apps are separated
  • Only apps with more than 100 reviews are represented
  • App Lab apps are not represented (see our latest Quest App Lab report)
  • Rounded ratings may appear to show ‘ties’ in ratings for some applications, but the ranked order remains correct

    This is the first time that RE4 has fallen out of the top 10 to now #15 regarding new monthly ratings, which most likely correlate with sales. It can’t be the USD 40 price alone, as The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has sold for the same for longer, always staying in the top 10 and most of the time in the top 5.

    As RE4 is the only actual AAA title in the top 20, with more AAA titles being what VR users are constantly asking for, and received a lot of praise for the VR implementation on top of already being a cult game, this doesn’t bode well for more investments in larger VR project. Why would anybody besides Meta bother to develop or port large scale titles if even RE4 falls out of favor compared to much simpler, shorter titles within a few months?

      I think RE4 has fallen because anyone that would have bought it already has. It’s top obvious of a pick.

        But the same logic would have to be applied to Beat Saber or Walkabout Mini Golf or SUPERHOT VR. Job Simulator was actually the first room scale VR game I ever played, and I traveled 600km to the 2015 German gamescom to get a slot in the prerelease HTC Vive demos that included an early build of it.

        So after seven years everybody that has ever heard of VR and was ever interested in it should own it and must have seen dozens to hundreds of YouTube videos featuring it. It even already had a successor with Vacation Simulator. Yet it still holds at #5, while RE4 dropped to #15 only nine months after release.

    Nice stats. Would be _funny_ to see the same for PCVR.
    It’s been rec room, beat saber, pavlov for years at any moment.
