It is always satisfying to blow the brains out of a lifeless yet trying-to-be-alive body with guns and bombs. Even when you play zombie games on your PC, you will still have the observation and the fear that gives you adrenaline once a wave starts to approach and gather around you.
The addition of zombie games to virtual reality only brings us a good idea of what the future will be. If you want to play a game that will get you entertained with a little of a jump scare, then these are perfect for you.
With Valve’s recent return to the gaming industry, they went back in with a huge announcement releasing the new game Half-Life Alex that surely called the attention of all gamers. Half-Life has been anticipated by many gamers, and it is not surprising that Valve went straight to virtual reality when they released the newest version of the game in public.
It features well-detailed surroundings with immersive sounds that keep you on your toes when playing the game. So aside from having fun by shooting zombies, you also need to complete the mission that will save all humanity.
It also activates hand-eye coordination because you will need to do a lot of simple and small tasks that will eventually help you in the game. Since the Oculus Quest does not have a wire attached to it, you can do this quick body adjustments with no hassle, so you can continue playing the game and do your job.
So the developers made sure that if you own an Oculus Quest, which is one of the most common VR headsets, you can play the best version of this game with ease of control. Arizona Sunshine started way back in 2016, and it was considered the best zombie shooting game.
The Oculus Quest is perfect for this because you do not have cords that will entangle you when you turn around to shoot some zombies behind you. As you try to find your way through the mountainous deserts and plateaus, you have to be alert as groups of zombies come in waves, and you will need to loot for more ammo.
The seemingly empty place has some important objects that will help you get through the desert and the zombies. It is the perfect game for Oculus Quest as it has a great graphic design and animation.
Just like the previous one on the list, Pavlov developed a built-in co-op zombie -shooting game that allows up to three of your friends to play with you in the mods. It has unique gameplay that is amplified by the immersive experience that you will get in virtual reality.
The dual strike edition features the new mechanic of the game. It allows you to wield two weapons at a time, so you can have more options in shooting down the zombies.
The game drops you to a level where you will need to defeat the zombies with all the resources that you have. The guns and other equipment require a lot of skill and tactics to get the best out of them.
You can play with friends in this game, so you can help strategize with one another and defeat the zombies. So just in case, the guns do not work and the zombies get close, you have another option for defeating them.
The amazing thing about this game is that it has a very nice physics system that allows you to move pieces and objects accurately. You get shotguns, machine guns, pistols, and short-range weapons such as swords, ax, crowbars, and so many more.
You have a lot of quests that you need to complete in order to finish the game. The great thing about this game is that you are not limited to guns and swords, but you also get to choose powers.
It is also based on Norse mythology, and it includes melee fights with Drugs as well. You also get powers in this game, but they are limited, so you need to defeat the zombies in hand-to-hand combat or with weapons such as swords or bow and arrows.
For years, players have been waiting for the release of the VR version of Skyrim, and it is finally here, so you can now join the hype and defeat the Drugs yourself. Since the Oculus Quest does not have cords around it, you can freely turn or twist to adjust your body.
Some games are still being continuously developed, so you can expect a lot of improvements in the following years. If you play on our PC and you get scared, you can turn around but in these games, even if you do, there will still be zombies behind you.
For today’s livestream we’re playing a bunch of PC VR games on the Oculus Quest 2, showing off what’s possible with Virtual Desktop and Request! You can order one right now for yourself and experience what we’ve called “the new king of VR” as long as you don’t mind the integrated Facebook account requirement.
Our Oculus Quest 2 gameplay livestream is planned to start at about 12:45 PM PT today and will last for around an hour or two, give or take. He established the site's game review criteria and helped spearhead its evolution into the leading source of VR news.
He is also a published author and gaming journalist for various other publications such as IGN, Forbes, Variety, PC Gamer, and many others. For those who love a good zombie apocalypse Sky dance Interactive’s The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is worth a look.
Having to survive the mean streets of New Orleans, you’ll deal with dangerous humans and walkers alike. Scavenge houses for useful parts to keep you healthy or to craft more weapons, whilst uncovering the underlying storyline.
The horror genre has been well represented in VR and Blooper Team’s Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition is a great example why you should avoid the woods at night. Taking the standard 2019 title and giving it a VR twist, you have to explore the creepy woodland looking for a missing lad.
Set in the neon fantasy world of Roar you play a Rune Knight tasked with ridding the land of evil. Weapons and useful items are littered throughout the world as well as resources to build quick platforms for defensive and offensive capabilities.
Completing mission-specific objectives or finding hidden secrets will unlock levels in the Challenge Mode, so there’s more to keep you entertained after the campaign is over. The only other horror title on this list, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted goes for the classic jump scare, using it to great effect.
With killer animatronics hunting you down encounter can include playing a security guard keeping an eye on monitors or crawling into claustrophobic ventilation systems to repair them. Pure multiplayer madness for up to four people, Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale is all about preparing delicious lunches for your customers.
With an original storyline set in London, circa 1908, you play a detective called to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a renown Egyptologist from the British Institute of Archaeology. These are all fully interactive to help engross you in each element plus the gameplay uses specific teleportation points, so it should be a very comfortable experience for all players.
Don’t waste your money and time on games that will make you want to barf. Remember : The Oculus Quest store has a 14-day refund policy (with a 2-hour play time limit).
If you love the zombie genre and FPS games, then Arizona Sunshine is one of the bestOculusQuestgames you can buy. It is one of the few zombie VR games that offers a full, albeit short, campaign mode which lasts 4 – 6 hours.
Arizona Sunshine is one of the best games on the Oculus Quest for both zombie fans and those prone to motion sickness. It is by far the best and most realistic boxing simulator I’ve ever played both in VR and on regular gaming consoles.
Despite being a fast-paced game where you must dodge and find good angles, I never once felt motion sick playing The Thrill of the Fight. By doing this, the game ensures that you are always punching toward the open space in the center of the playable area.
You can choose the strength of your opponents, the length of the matches and how much of a power advantage you want to play with. While this is a video game on the surface, a few rounds of The Thrill of the Fight at high intensity could prove to be one of the hardest workouts you’ve ever done in your life.
In the game, you either solve the puzzle and escape the room or die a very painful death. To make matters worse, for unknown reasons, you are strapped and locked to a wheelchair.
Similarly to The Last Guardian you must communicate without words, controlling the girl’s movement with the laser pointer. Not only are there mind-numbingly difficult puzzles to solve, but the presentation of the game and the images it uses will also have you scratching your head at the meaning of it all.
For a simple game without much dynamic movement and fast-paced action, I expected the graphics to be crisper. For long play sessions, I sometimes felt the need to take the headset off just to give my eyes a break.
You have everything you can see at your disposal: guns, throwing stars, wine bottles, coffee mugs, and even your own two fists. Best of all, since you control time and the speed of your enemies, there’s almost zero chance that anyone could get motion sick playing this game.
The crazy part is, it’s a 100% free game that isn’t even officially on the Oculus Store yet. From ejecting the magazine to cocking the pistol, the shooting mechanics are the most realistic I’ve experienced so far on the Oculus Quest.
If you’re a fan of shooters or always wanted to know what it felt like to be in a shootout, definitely give Crisis Brigade a try. To end off, I’d like to reiterate again that if any of these games give you motion sickness, you can refund them within 14 days of purchase (as long as you play for less than 2 hours).
The reason for the refund policy on the Oculus Store is at least partly to help people prone to motion sickness dive into VR without worry. Oculus made a very kind and great decision to allow refunds, so I encourage you to try all of these games without worrying about the risk of getting motion sick.
