Gamespot: PSVR saved VR gaming in 2018

Recommended Posts

Despite a refined version of the HTC Vive and an entry-level standalone Oculus headset in the Oculus Go, PlayStation VR stole the show late in 2018. It might be bit surprising to think that as time marches on, the more primitive technology was home to the year's best VR games; PSVR still runs on PlayStation 4 hardware (Pro or otherwise), tracks players through the PlayStation Camera, and uses the unsophisticated Move controllers. But it's a testament to Sony's ability to secure exclusivity, establish a wider platform, and have developers deliver unique, compelling experiences. And if it wasn't for a handful of great games, 2018 would've been wholly underwhelming for VR.

 

The 5 Best VR Games Of 2018

 

Astro Bot: Rescue Mission

Beat Saber

Moss

Tetris Effect

WipEout: Omega Collection

I particular enjoy how Lemmings claim this is gimmick gaming, discounting all the cool games that have since come out.

especially when we’ve reached a point where psvr vs xbox exclusives is a legitimate debate. just compare to the top 5 xbox of 2018:

 

Forza Horizon 4

Ashen

Sea of Thieves

State of Decay 2

Mission Impossible 4K Collection

2 Multiplats, a pair of disastrous flops, and an actual movie collection.

 

And they have the audacity to put god as a suffix to their name :D

Showing my support for VR gaming. Bought another game, Space Pirate Trainer. The game is boss, one of the best wave shooter I've played since Blasters of the Universe and Shooty Fruity and it's only $15 USD.

 

Shooting guns in VR is seriously god tier. Can't wait to get my PS Aim controller for Firewall and Farpoint.

It only took a 6-hour game to "save" a whole market of different VR headsets reaching up to $800(+required console/PC not included), after 2 years ... just shows you how valuable VR gaming is at the moment:tom:
