While Oculus doesn’t offer much publicly in the way of understanding how well individual apps are performing across its VR storefronts, it’s possible to glean some insight by looking at apps relative to each other. Here’s a snapshot of the top 20 Oculus Quest games and apps as of July 2020.

Some quick qualifications before we get to the data dump:

  • Paid and free apps are separated
  • Only apps with more than 100 reviews are represented
  • Rounded ratings may appear to show ‘ties’ in ratings for some applications, but the ranked order remains correct

    I remember the comments about the room saying: they are stupid to release it the same day as Alyx, Nobody is gonna care… Today it’s the best rated and obviously lots of ratings.

    Nice to see the great Moss still at the top.

    • ComfyWolf

      Unless someone is using Link then Alyx isn’t even available on the Quest, I’m sure sales were somewhat affected by Alyx but not very significantly. Plus there aren’t a ton of games on the Quest, so a good one is going to stand out regardless of what else releases on the same day.

    • Andrew Jakobs

      Then again, top rated doesn’t mean best selling..

  • Ron

    Just an FYI in case anyone’s looking…Rift S back in stock at Oculus for a moment

    Most games on Quest are $30 and for the most part they’re casual games and the novelty wears off fast. Too expensive compared to a PS4 pr XBOX games, even at double the price when first released, but if you wait a few months you can get it form half the price.

  • Kris Bunch

    Does anyone else find rating scores for Quest games over inflated? It would also be nice to see how long someone has played the game before rating it, like Steam.

  • MosBen

    A buddy of mine’s brother was part of the very small team that made Moss, and I’m always excited to see it doing well.

  • Pablo C

    I thought the Quest was going to really hit it with new great games, but after all, it ended holding single experiences that wear fast. On the oposite side, I though PC VR was going to be displaced by mobile VR, but on contraire, this year we got Alyx, Asgard, Stormlands, Saints and sinners, all top of the notch PC VR games. Plus, great ports, like NMS.
