VR is a thing now!
Modern VR is in its infancy, but three big publishers came out of the gate swinging this year.
Oculus, Valve, and Sony are all vying for your attention (and by proxy, an entire paycheck to pay for the tech), and in that confrontation, some great games were born. No, not just tech demos, but full-on experiences that either require a virtual reality device, or are better for it.
The VR war is only going to get more competitive and nastier next year, but for now, consider this the calm before the storm. Here are Destructoid’s nominees for Best VR Game of 2016…
- EVE: Valkyrie
- Rez Infinite
- The Climb
- Raw Data
- The Gallery: Call of Starseed
- Space Pirate Trainer
- Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
[Incomplete products like Steam Early Access titles, and episodic titles that are not fair to assess as standalone experiences, without a full episode count, were not eligible for this year’s awards. The cutoff for entry into Destructoid’s 2016’s Game of the Year awards is December 6, 2016.]
