Most Rated Free Oculus Rift Apps

The number of ratings often gives a ballpark idea of the relative sales of each title; a title with more ratings is likely to have sold better than a title with less, though there’s certainly an unknown margin of error.

    Interesting to see what games people will be leaving behind or running with Revive instead (assuming this gets around the problem) due to the new Facebook login requirement.

      So true, I just added a bunch of these games to my wishlist, but you can bet that it’s my steam wishlist and not my oculus one, even though Oculus store is a much nicer experience.

  • These are almost all very old games (in terms of VR timespan), hard to know if they’re (still) popular because they’re actually good, or they’re popular because they keep appearing on lists like this. I feel like these kinds of lists need a term limit, so newer titles have a chance to get popular.

      I am (I was ?) a VR Dev. Stop working since lockdown in March.
      Get back to it just to discover the same old things over and over again.
      It does not take off!
