There are only 2 brands of High-end VR headsets currently available which would be the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Here is a list of 7 of the best free games available for the Oculus Rift /Touch and HTC Vive.


Accounting VR



Accounting



Trying to balance both debit and credit can be a frustrating if not a boring thing to do. Accounting VR on the other hand is not what it seems because you end up doing things that have nothing to do with accounting. In the game, the VR app was suppose to make bookkeeping an easy task but something went wrong and you, yes you the player gets to be lost in the virtual world. Where you end up and who you meet along the way will give you one riot of an adventure. The game is awesome but has a strict PG rating because with this game, even grown ups need parental guidance.

Rec Room



Wreck Room



It’s supposed to be what you usually do in a gym. Wreck Room, err…Rec Room is a Virtual Reality social game where you can play active games against other VR players online. You can customize your avatar in the locker room before heading out to play with the others. The game graphics are not that good and the game play is a wreck, but you are going to have so much fun laughing and chatting with the other people there. You can try to play Ping-Pong, Pelota or any other motion controlled games but you’ll probably end up meeting new people, making friends and having fun with them.

There are 2 versions of this game. The one for the Oculus is called Toybox and the one for the HTC Vive is named Playground. You are in a playroom with lots of objects and toys scattered around. You can pick them up, throw them, build with them, play with them and do whatever you want as long as the game lets you. The game looks more like a demo than a game but because you can play with your friends, you can sort of come up with any game you want. After all, little children are good at doing that.

Waltz of the Wizard



Wizard Waltz



This is a very immersive game. It will entrap you in the world of Wizardry, Magic and special VR effects. You play the part of a Wizard in his Magical tower in his laboratory of Magic. No, this is not Harry Potter but close enough. Before you, are the instruments and tools of your craft. You have to figure out how to use them in the most creative ways as doing so will create wonders right before your very eyes! You can mix potions, create spells and travel to different locations with the aid of portals that you summon musically by striking a small colorful instrument on your worktable. Accompanying you would be a magical skull who talks and the Knight’s armor at the corner who seems to be your security guard. Beware of the giant who shows up every now and then but beware more of the spoilers you are reading right now. The game is free for those who have a magical headset and PC on hand.
