Community Download: Which VR Games Keep You Coming Back For More?

by David Jagneaux • September 3rd, 2017

Welcome back to the Community Download, our weekly series that lets you, our members of the UploadVR Community, voice your opinion on a wide range of topics! Last time we asked our wonderful readership if they found themselves growing tired of zombie-themed VR games and this week we aim to keep the focus on gaming once again.

There are lots of great VR games out there. If someone asks me which games to get I have a pre-memorized list in my head for each platform. The problem though is that despite the fact that a lot of these games are exciting and fun in their own right, they often lose their luster very quickly. I’m quick to recommend The Brookhaven Experiment to fans of zombies and I still bust it out at parties and gatherings, but I don’t ever return to it. The same goes for a ton of VR titles out there. Do you still play Farpoint, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, Onward, or any other titles with multiplayer offerings? Are there any singleplayer games you can’t get enough of?

So that’s the question at the heart of this weekend’s post: Which VR games (if any) actually keep you coming back for more consistently?

It’s not even a week old yet, but Sparc is scratching a very serious itch for me that I didn’t even know I had. I often find myself itching for a bit of paintball or dodgeball in Rec Room too and love to play a few rounds of Longbow or Holopoint still even a year and a half after they each released. Echo Arena is filling that void for a lot of people as well.

Do you have any VR games that you just can’t quit playing? Let us know down in the comments below!

  • Bibelo

    Smashbox Arena

  • Maciej Nowy

    Onward. 400h, everything else below 10h

  • Zack

    Rec room and onward are both great. With the new update superhot isn’t bad either.

  • Rick

    Climbey! wonderfull game, great online community.

  • Knightmare25

    Right now it’s Sparc.

  • David Dewis

    Onward VR. Especially the recent player vs AI update.

  • Superhot until I finished all the challenges, same with Robo Recall. Gorn is a big one now. And I still play Dirt Rally and Elite once in a while.

  • Ted Joseph

    Arizona Sunshine brings me back every once in a while. I just wish they fixed the co-op campaign join issues… I also enjoyed and finished Wilsons Heart. The Mages Tale was fun, but I quit at a complex puzzle that I couldn’t figure out. Star Trek, Lone Echo, VR Sports, Pool VR, all fun games. Going to move over to the windows MR I think as long as I can get my Oculus games to work on it.

    VTOL VR is relatively new.. but I keep playing it over and over repeating missions, etc.. just because there is always something new to learn or do and that control scheme is amazing. Thirst VR I play every VR session just because it is the best VR game ever made. While simple and dumb.. it just is so fun. Then I’d say Windlands still has a long shelf life. Even on easy, it’s a super hard challenge to 100% that game and it’s uniqueness makes it something I’ll probably be coming back to for years. The rest of my library.. I go in and out of every once in awhile. Many are great, but I just don’t have the time to spend on them.

  • Jonny C

    DriveClub VR.

  • LoreII

    Brookeven, drive club, super hot

  • Harald Wotzkowski

    Dead Moon – Revenge on Phobos – VR (Vive and Rift). Monsters monsters monsters.

  • nargorn

    Assetto Corsa, Arizona Sunshine, Lone Echo, Hot Dogs Horseshoes and Handgrenades, Sword Master VR. My top 5! Just pure fun!

  • tosh79

    I’ve loved things like Robo Recall, and Lone echo, But just got Landfall in the sale and really love a good seated vr experience, Full RTS titles would be great, and a good dungeon crawler.

  • Jason Kowalski

    I have gone back to Dead and Buried more than any other game. Especially Horde mode. I like it because it’s fun and also a really good workout.

  • Stranger On The Road

    Summer Lesson: Miyamoto Hikari Edition, VR Kanojo and Gal Gun VR!
    /me runs like hell! :-p

    On more series note, EVE: Valkyrie is something I keep coming back to, there is just something about flying in space that makes me love this title. Which is why I can’t wait to get my hands on Ace Combat 7 and to continue flying in VR in a new experience.

  • ClassicGamerNL

    My biggest problem is to choose what game to play. I love so many!


  • If you talk about games, then Robo Recall.
    If we can add other entertainment experiences, than I think that a lot of people would say “VR Porn” 😀

  • DJMaculate

    Sairento, Gorn, Space Pirate Trainer

  • Dave Leack

    Sairento VR had some of the best movement dynamics I’ve seen in a VR title. That alone keeps me coming back!

  • Filmgeek47

    Star Trek: Bridge Crew! And Elite Dangerous, Robo Recall and landfall.

  • Ray Stephenson

    Sairento VR has been my favorite so far.

  • (Ger)Asta

    Sairento VR <= is the best game in VR. The movement system is awesome, you can do wallruns,backflips etc like a ninja!

  • Factual

    The ONLY game I return to consistently is Sairento. On top of the amazing movement options, the weapons are incredibly diverse and fun to engage with!

  • Rec Room, Sairento,

  • qwzzz

    Sairento VR for its crazy antics of movement dynamics & their need to listen & speedy updates!

  • PK


  • Roland Noir

    SairentoVR when it comes to my daily VR gaming. That game is still in early access but I think it’s way ahead of most if not all other vr games combat, weapons/weapon upgrades and movement wise. Those are the two most important things for me when it comes to VR or any game.

  • AndersH

    Eleven: Table Tennis VR. Amazing game with never ending replay value!

  • S.D. Roberts

    Il2 Sturmovik is the unsung hero of VR. The most immersive VR experience and it deserves some attention

  • Vixtrola

    Sairento VR for sure, will probably pass 100 hours played by next weekend.. best feeling of combat in VR yet and a great relic system to keep you wanting to play day after day.. co-op and full campaign is in the works right now as well

  • Jared Benedik

    Saitento VR has made some of the most regular and amazing updates of any vr game I’ve seen over time.

  • Keith.

    All PSVR:

    Infinite MiniGolf
    Tiny Trax
    Dirt Rally
    Dick Wilde

  • Hone McBone

    Project Cars & Dirt Rally are what I keep going back to & have the most hours in. I had to move my setup to a smaller space so I’m sticking with driving games at the moment, but I’d keep going back to Rec Room before moving it.

  • 13penguins

    I came here to comment Sairento… it seems that I’m not alone.

  • Max Jardine Clarke

    Sairento is the VR game that has shown the biggest improvements over time for me, and one of the few VR games that make you feel like you can easily do badass things you can’t easily do in real life!

  • DeeHawk

    I’m going back to Subnautica soon. That’s hands down the most immersive game I ever played. I clocked 50 hours in Early Access, even though it’s very poorly optimized for VR. Nausea Warning!

  • Wildtz0r

    Robo Recall to claim a couple more 1st spots on the all-star global leaderboard 🙂

  • Adrimove

    Gunheart, weird how no one talk about this game !
    He has a lot of content and you can play in coop and versus.

  • Mike

    The only game that keeps me coming back day after day is Echo Arena

  • James Nation

    +1 on Sairento VR. It’s my daily game. The movement in the game is unlike any other and the action is intense.

  • Brett Stubbs

    Sairento VR & Thrill of the Fight. I have over 100 games, but those are the only two I return to over and over again.

  • Yan Gu

    Saitento VR the only one keeps me interested
