The best games in virtual reality

Today, the technology of creating electronic games is developing rapidly, and publishers are making their games more sophisticated, impressive, realistic and competitive. In order to survive in the market, you need to have a set of truly unique features and a cool gameplay. However, very often this is not enough.

Over the years, many gamers have been waiting for the game to reach a fundamentally new level, when it will be possible to fully immerse into a new reality, take a real weapon and take the fight, or end up in a real casino or on the sports field as an athlete. Modern technologies already allow this, largely due to the use of virtual reality.

What is virtual reality?

Virtual reality (VR) already at the present stage of technical development is a completely new world, recreated through human sensations. This new reality accurately imitates the human impact on it and its responses. Objects that a person encounters in virtual reality can be perfect copies of real things and have the same qualities. To dive into virtual reality, a user of VR devices just needs to wear a special headset connected to the platform that brings them to the new world. A few years ago, such a journey into a new reality seemed to be an attribute of the future, but now it has become possible.

Many of the world’s largest companies engaged in development in the field of IT, for many years invested in the development of virtual reality. These include Facebook, Microsoft, Apple and others. New platforms and devices have been created that allow you to transfer to virtual reality. One of the first products of VR was, of course, games in which the user can gain a completely new sense of gameplay.

Virtual reality games require you to connect to special platforms using a headset that the player wears. Now VR games are released mainly for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR platforms. However, the world’s largest companies are working on new helmets for virtual reality. Among such companies in particular, Apple, which expects to release a  new device in 2020. This wireless device doesn’t even need to be connected to a smartphone or computer. 
Already, for each of the platforms with support for virtual reality, you can find a lot of games that are worth attention. It is about them that will be discussed.
