Focusing on cross-headset support, Valve aims to make Steam the go-to place for virtual reality content distribution. Now touting more than 600 VR titles, the platform’s VR apps are steadily rising through the ranks of the entire Steam library.
Among Steam’s top 10 best reviewed games, 30% are VR compatible, including the #1 position which has been held by Valve’s The Lab since at least as far back as July, and is now the best reviewed game among Steam’s entire library of more than 10,000 games.
Newly joining the top 10 best reviewed games is Rec Room, an Early Access VR title that combines a social VR experience with multiplayer mini games. The title is rated ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ with 99% of 515 reviewers giving it a positive vote.
While The Lab and Rec Room certainly get a boost in positive reviews thanks to being free, VR-compatible title Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, a cooperative bomb defusal game, holds the #10 position even with a $15 pricetag.
Meanwhile, VR games like Raw Data made a splash at launch by hitting #1 in the Steam Top Sellers list, later confirming to have reeled in more than $1 million in revenue, an impressive figure for a game exclusively built for a still fledgling install base of HTC Vive users.
