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 May 2023.

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

    Since we aren’t getting any stats for PCVR – everything is absolutetly the same for the past couple of years. Every new game release is an immediate flop, and after a handful of people actually play these new PCVR titles, they all go back to gorilla tag/beat saber/blade and sorcery.

      I only play Walkabout Mini Golf.

      I think you’re not being fair with VR here. There’s also a sizable player base for other games like contractors and pavlov, Ancient dungeon has really good reviews on pcvr as well. Honestly haven’t ever touched gorilla tag and haven’t played beat saber in over a year. Blade and sorcery is an addiction of mine though thanks to the absolutely incredible modding community. But its far from the only VR game I play

        Not fair?
        Ancient Dungeon is yet another game that has zero business running off anything PC powered.
        It topped at 102 concurrent players back in December 2022. I don’t remember when it actually launched, but it’s still early access on Steam.

        Game could have 100% positive reviews. Steam is either positive or negative, no “3 stars” or something.
        Yet 102 concurrent players? That’s a dead irrelevant game right there. Currently 10 players now, last 24 hours peak – 17. Yeah. Nobody cares.
