Beat Saber is one of the most famous Oculus Quest 2 games.
It’s a rhythm action game – a bit like Guitar Hero, but you cut through blocks with lightsabers.
The game is crammed with great music, is endlessly fun (and affordable), and is a perfect showcase for VR.

Eleven table tennis
There’s not much to say: it’s table tennis, but in VR.
The physics are perfect and there are plenty of mini-games as well as an AI opponent who will really put your skills to the test.
But maybe the best part is the multiplayer mode, where you can play against real opponents – many of which are … very, very good.

But Layers of Fear is great and takes you through a really spooky mansion (and an engaging story).
There are lots of spooky moments and exciting puzzles to solve.
As such, this is a very good game to stream on TV with friends. Fear abounds.

This is a fun alternative to Beat Saber – a rhythm-action game that’s a bit more danceable.
Your job is to hit and tap a series of beats while listening to music.
And as you increase the difficulty, you will find that you are getting proper workout. Then simply wipe the headset …

Ball-hitting brilliancePhoto credit: facebook / eye
It’s a bit like tennis or maybe squash. But in the future. And much cooler.
You play with a sci-fi bat and a charged ball, aiming at specific areas on the walls of a glass dome that you are in.
It takes a surprising amount of skill to master, and it’s really great fun.

Asgard’s Wrath (Rift Store Only)
OK, this isn’t exactly an Oculus Quest 2 game.
You really need a gaming PC and an Oculus Link cable because this game is only available in the Oculus Rift Store – and weighs around 80 GB.
But it’s a worthwhile addition: this is a thoroughbred role-playing game that will faint fantasy fans.
It’s a bit like Skyrim in VR, with exploration, puzzle solving, and a proper inn where you can have a beer and smash things against walls.
Oh, and there’s the rest of the game too …
