Let’s Get Medieval

Until You Fall – $25

Until You Fall just released on Quest, bringing along with it a refreshingly unique approach to VR sword fighting. It combines the satisfaction of a hack & slash game with the depth of RPG combat, all wrapped up in a VR-native design. The game’s Quest port is a near-perfect translation from its PC counterpart which benefits from the lack of tether.

In Death: Unchained – $30

In Death: Unchained is a really polished rogue-lite archery game that pits you against a never-ending mix of horrible ghoulies. Fight through multiple levels, all with their own end bosses, and when you’re done, do it all over again. The damned lovechild of Dante Alghieri and Sisyphus.

Journey of the Gods – $30

Journey of the Gods lets you become the hero on a legendary quest against the forces of evil. Explore a wide and wondrous world, take down baddies in ranged and melee combat, and gain the mystical power of the gods as you solve their mysteries. Low poly, high fantasy.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – $40

Yes, it has plenty of guns and isn’t set in the Dark Ages (or a fantasy version therein) but you’d be surprised just how much time you’ll spend feeling like you’ve been bombed back to the Middle Ages as you melee your way through hordes of deadly zombies. And yes, we’re now over budget by $25, but The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is still really worth the extra dough. Graphically, it’s a downgrade from the PC version, but you’ll still love it.

  • Mark Zemlin

    Should have included Journey of the Gods

    • D-_-RAiL

      That was definitely one of my favorite games this year. Easily top 5 Quest Games and the best game specifically developed for Quest at the time.

  • flamaest

    These are all really old games and they really shouldn’t cost this much by now. They should be like 5 bucks each. There came out YEARS ago.

    • Stop devaluing devs

      Are you one of those awful people who complain that mobile games cost more than $1?

      • Jistuce

        Some people just want everything to be free.

        • D-_-RAiL

          oh yeah you see those reviews on Steam all the time. This game should be F2P or even in the Discussion threads. Just tons of people writing I wont play this unless its f2p

          • Jistuce

            See also everyone that keeps complaining that Beat Saber hasn’t gone on sale since before it left Early Access.

            I still maintain they should raise the price, then put it on sale for the original price. That should shut everyone up, right?

          • aasdfa

            nah they make a ton from dlc music packs, they should really lower the price to get more people in because theyll end up selling multiples more just from sound packs.

    • Jistuce

      Just because a game’s old doesn’t mean it is worth less. Normally, costs fall as sales slow. If sales are still strong, why should developers cut costs? Particularly in VR, which is a growing market. There’s always a new player coming in.

      Also:
      Moss: Last year.
      Beat Saber: technically this year, though paid beta access began last year.
      These games didn’t all come out YEARS ago.

      The oldest of these is… Superhot, which first came out in 2013 as a freeware title before being expanded and release as a “real game” and then reworked for VR before being YET AGAIN being reworked for the Quest earlier this year. It was old when the first paid version came out. And people still love it, because the game has a very unique style(both in terms of visuals and play).

      And … none of this matters. If someone is new to VR, they haven’t played any of these except maybe Superhot. It doesn’t have to be new to be new to you.

      • doublej42

        Superhot and superhot be are completely different games with different levels. You could call it superhot 2 vr.

        • Jistuce

          Could call it Superhotter. I WOULD call it Superhotter. This is why I shouldn’t be allowed to name things.

      • aasdfa

        it would be nice for some of them to reduce a bit after a while so there isnt a second big pay wall for newcomers. after spending a few hundred on a headset you have to spend another hundred on games and thats commonly overlooked which does devalue the experience a bit.

    • D-_-RAiL

      They are like the Nintendo Store when it comes to prices.

    • doublej42

      So most new games here cost $80 to $100 so these are 75% off of that.

    • JakeDunnegan

      Those games have stood the test of time. It’s supply and demand – the demand is still high for those games, so the price will continue to be high. (Though, I;ve purchased every single one of them on one sale or another.) Other games that have stayed high price b/c of quality include games like Minecraft and Divinity: Original Sin 2.

  • Great products, for sure

    • JakeDunnegan

      Agreed – nice recommendations for folks who are new to VR and are looking for some current games for their recently un-wrapped gift! :)

  • Xron

    My first games on quest were

    1. Thrill to fight.
    2. Real Fishing
    3. Virtual Virtual Reality
    4. Elven Assasin
    5. Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR

    Thinking about beat saber.

    • Immersive Computing

      How is V.V.R. on Quest?

      • Xron

        It’s unique story telling and its fun, worth grabbing it.

        • Immersive Computing

          Don’t currently have access to Quest but interested how it looks and feels.

          Was great on Daydream original, spoiled on my Daydream 2017 and my Rift CV1 by their Fresnel lenses causing very off-putting god-rays, Index has been better with touch of glare but not god rays on vvr

          • Xron

            Seems a bit buggy to me, maybe because one of my controllers stopped working, need to recharge battery, but on wihte enviroment game seems pretty clear.

          • Immersive Computing

            That’s good to hear. VVR looked good in original Daydream but small aperture aspherical lenses so FOV limited.

            2017 daydream had bigger FOV and much better clarity but VVR was spoiled at time by off-putting Fresnel lens artifacts. Rift CV1 was worse for VVR. It’s much better on Index and thankfully not getting glare problems

  • Uncle Right

    Recently this website does not add much news from VR industry. Mostly sponsored posts every few days. RoadToVR is weak and boring.

    • JakeDunnegan

      Funny… I get most of my VR news from this site. Maybe you mean since Christmas – which would make sense, since it’s a slow news period and I’m sure the folks are taking a Christmas break.

  • NooYawker

    I haven’t played it but Asgards Wrath looks pretty fun.

  • For exactly ZERO dollars you can install SideQuest and download QuestORama. It’s grappling hooks, climbing, gun-play, puzzles and more. https://sidequestvr.com/#/app/338

    The first thing you should be telling anyone is to enable sideloading.

  • DigoriePiper

    Don’t overlook SideQuest ! RTCW is probably the best game on Quest at the moment for sheer length of play and immersive quality. It’s $3.99 on Steam for the original content which you can then manually copy to Dr. Beef’s amazing Quest port. He’s also done Half Life and Quake – all brilliantly playable.
