VR Games

I’m still just getting started trying various games, so I may have not gotten to some of the best ones. Plus, depends on the type of game of course.
 
Valve’s “The Lab”, which is just a demo, is actually pretty impressive. Some fun games in that even at the demo level. Seems like they could do a bit of work and sell them. Free, and a great intro to what’s possible in VR.
 
If you like shooting evil monks and other creatures with arrows, “In Death” is quite good. Unforgiving gameplay, but well done. I stuck with it and have gotten pretty. Although anyone under the age of 35 would consider me laughably unskilled. 🙂
 
“Space Pirate Trainer” is a lot of fun, shooting SF weaponry at robot drones.
 
“Moss” is a seated game with an interesting style, and not a “shooter”. I played it for a few minutes and then put it on hold until I can spend some time with it.
 
I’ve got several more well-rated games in my library, just waiting to be played. I really am just beginning to explore what’s available.
 
It’s also pretty impressive to just visit some of the “environments” that people have created. And Google Earth is neat in VR, gives a whole new depth to Street View. (Note that some aspect of that program was getting me a bit motion sick, so some slight caution is advised.)
 
As you may be aware, the Vive uses two transmitters in the corner of the room called Lighthouses to allow tracking headset and controller motion. With amazing accuracy and latency!
This is a fascinating article and video about that technology:
