Among the several hundred games and apps on the Oculus Quest storefront, most of them cost between $10 and $40 while only offering about three to five hours of gameplay on average. The Oculus Store isn’t like Steam, where you can build up huge libraries for cheap; and 64GB or 128GB headset owners have to be careful not to fill up their hard drives with junk.
That’s where our team of VR fanatics comes in! We spend a lot of leisure time blocking out reality with the Oculus Quest 2, and our picks for the best Oculus Quest games come personally recommended. We attached our names to our absolute favorites in each category, so you know we played and judged them for ourselves before endorsing them. Some games even have demos so you can try before you buy!
From action and exercise to horror and puzzle games — and even some App Lab and Oculus Link games thrown in for good measure — here are our favorite Meta Quest 2 games in each category. Use the drop-down menu above to jump straight to your section of choice.
