Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
SUPERHOT VR – $25
If you’ve never had a chance to play either the VR version or the original Superhot on PC, it works like this: every time you move, time moves forward. Stand still, and the world stops. You’d think it would be easy to win against the evil red crystal dudes that run at you, but each movement is death sentence waiting to happen if you’re not careful. Catch guns, shoot, punch, die, repeat until you feel like Neo from The Matrix or John Wick from … John Wick. You’re bound to feel like some version of Keanu Reeves in Superhot VR.
Onward – $25
This online milsim-style shooter is filled with hardcore users thanks to its realism, which means you’ll need to use all of the sort of military tactics to win against the other team. Communicate clearly, make sure you’re not running ahead of the pack Leroy Jenkins-style, and get good at shooting. Marksmanship counts.
Phantom: Covert Ops – $30
Your tactical kayak is more than just a a boat: it’s your only means of making your way undetected through a swarm of baddies. It seems like a gimmick at first, but it’s actually a really immersive way to move through the world while (of course) shooting down the enemy, lobbing bombs, and trying your best to keep a low profile as you slip through the game’s many waterways.
Gun Club VR – $20
Story-driven, active games are fun and all, but maybe you just want to sit down and plink at some targets using realistic weaponry that only the military, police, and Vegas gun ranges can get their hands on. There’s also pop-up alien targets for fast gameplay, but you can take it slow too.
