    Why is only the Facebook platform getting this kind of exposure (“20 best games”) on your website lately?
    Please don’t become another UploadVR…

      This is specifically a data-driven article that’s about the performance of apps on the store as rated by users. We present these numbers because they are useful for analysis beyond simply “what game is good;” they tell us things like what sorts of games are finding success, what is the benchmark for success on the store, how much the store is growing, and how much opportunity there is for developers to break into the top games in the store.

      Similar data is already available in a comprehensive way for all SteamVR games via https://steamdb.info/ and similar data sites. The reason we’re focusing on Oculus stores for this series of articles is because this data isn’t available elsewhere.

      As for our subjective picks on great games on various VR platforms, you can find our suggestions in the ‘Top Picks’ section of the site menu where you’ll find things that cover a range of platforms like:

        I see, but the result is that Facebook gets a lot more advertising than competitor platforms because… they are a worse platform not providing useful data that others do? It seems unfair.

        • Jarom Madsen

          Eh, I see your point but extra coverage doesn’t equate to being “unfair”. It’s just an effort vs reward scenario. They’re going to get much more engagement from an article providing Oculus store data breakdowns unavailable anywhere else than they would doing the same for Steam games where people can already find and scrutinize the information themselves.

          If your point is that you’d find an article about Steam VR breakdowns in a similar format useful and interesting to you, maybe say that instead of focusing on how it’s unfair that they’re making these Oculus articles. Makes it seem like you’d prefer less than more which they’re never going to agree with.

        • benz145

          The coverage is not for the benefit of Facebook, it’s useful information for users, developers, and the entire industry to have, and its usefulness extends beyond the Oculus store. Would you prefer we don’t make this data available to those groups, just so that we have less coverage related to Facebook?

          You are making a mistake which is to think that the amount of coverage has anything to do with fairness. Someone could run a site 100% dedicated to Valve’s VR activities and offer extremely unfair reporting of those activities, even though Valve is getting 100% of their coverage.

    Thanks for these breakdowns I find them very helpful. How are you gathering your data? Have you figured out their api or are you aggregating this data manually?
