Hello, good folks! Ahh, it’s quarantine time and everyone is stuck in their homes. People can’t go to schools, offices, visit malls, watch football games, eat their favorite food from their go-to food chains, and much more fun stuff that we all definitely miss!
This quarantine has made us so uninterested in almost everything, that even when the US Pentagon released 3 new verified videos of UFO’s which basically proves that we may not be the only intelligent species in this universe but surprisingly, there is no hype about it whatsoever. It just became another news.
But on the bright side, this quarantine is one of the best times to try VR and other Immersive Technologies. Since people can’t interact with other people face to face and can’t go out, it makes them want to try out new things and VR is one of the best ways to get our dear own freedom once again and have great fun while exploring it.
To help you rid boredom, we’ve listed down the 10 best VR games to play during Quarantine. And so the list begins in no particular order.
Asgard’s Wrath | Oculus Quest, Rift Platform
If you are done playing small 3 to 5 hours VR games and looking for something big this Norse mythology-themed action-RPG will surely be a treat for you. Asgard’s Wrath is the first game of its kind in the way it exemplifies VR storytelling.
Become the next great Asgardian god as you immerse yourself in the legendary world of Norse mythology. Sharpen your swordplay and bring your own fighting style into the fray with next-level combat.
Possess different classes of mortal heroes, solve larger-than-life puzzles, and transform animals into warrior companions that you lead into battle.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners | Rift Platform, PCVR, PSVR

Supernatural | Oculus Quest
OG Beat Saber players will call this game a replica of their beloved game, but hold down your horses! Let me explain why this is more than just a Beat Saber like game.
Supernatural is a subscription-based VR Fitness App that not only makes you feel alive with their engaging music from popular artists, variety of photorealistic landscapes but also helps you to reduce the quarantine belly which you might’ve developed.
Supernatural melds together VR rhythm game mechanics, daily personalized full-body workouts, expert coaching from real-world trainers to achieve your fitness goals.
Pistol Whip | Oculus Quest, PCVR
I’m a huge fan of Keanu Reeves and his action movies. If you thought I’m gonna talk about Cyberpunk 2077, you guys are wrong. This is Immersive Leaks and here we talk about AR, VR, MR, and all other immersive technologies.
So ignoring the fact that I made you guys listen to me talk about our page, I’m going to talk about Pistol Whip which was heavily inspired by Keanu Reeves’ John Wick and also Equilibrium.
You get to shoot people down like John Wick in this unstoppable action-rhythm FPS game. Journey through a cinematic bullet hell powered by a breakneck soundtrack to become the ultimate action hero legend.
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series | Oculus Quest, Rift Platform
Vader Immortal is a short-form narrative VR game for the Oculus Quest and Rift, written by screenwriter David S. Goyer. It’s composed of three episodes, each of which lasts less than an hour, although there’s a non-narrative “lightsaber dojo” to spend the rest of the quarantine.
Vader Immortal episodes feature lots of different gameplay mechanics, from scrambling up ladders to fighting lightsaber duels.
Pixel Ripped 1995 | Oculus Quest, Rift Platform, PCVR
Pixel Ripped is back with a brand new nostalgia-fueled virtual reality game-within-a-game, this time in the year 1995! To restore balance to multiple dimensions, our videogame hero Dot recruits the help of the best gamer from 1995, an unassuming 9-year-old boy named David.
Join this unlikely duo through challenging throwbacks to all your favourite classics from the late 16-bit and early 32-bit era of games inside a virtual reality world.
The game evokes a genuine nostalgic feeling, such as the adrenaline of playing games without getting caught after your mom told you to go to bed, or the thrill of finding that brand new game at the store.
Pixel Ripped 1995 is an incredible journey for both VR and retro gamers.
Phantom: Covert Ops | Oculus Quest, Rift Platform
If you thought VR was lacking a Stealth game like Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell you are up for a surprise. Enter Phantom: Covert Ops, a unique kayak-based VR shooter from nDreams. This game received so many awards including the Best VR game of E3 2019 by Game Critic Awards.
You are a Phantom: an elite covert operative with one night to prevent all-out war. Phantom: Covert Ops is stealth-based and the majority of your weapons are focussed around that.
The scope of your main method of murder, a silenced sniper rifle, will snap to your eye when you aim. This allows you to scan your area from the shadows, work out your plan of attack, and dispatch any loan guards you might see.
Lies Beneath | Oculus Quest, Rift Platform
Everyone likes to play an action-packed shooting game where you can shoot things mindlessly, but if you care about the narrative of the story, unique gameplay design, and a healthy dose of spooky elements, this is definitely your game.
