Facebook is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to the metaverse. To accomplish their new ultimate goal, the company now known as Meta is the de-facto owner of Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality glasses. Even though the glasses are going to be the ‘entry ticket’ to the metaverse, you can use them for another type of entertainment – video games!
Today, there are many video games that went into virtual reality, such as PlayStation, which did it a few years ago with their PS4 release. Shortly after that, Oculus was acquired by Facebook and quickly became one of the pioneers in VR gaming. Now, you can find tons of games that you can play on Oculus Quest 2. Word of advice though, make sure you have plenty of room to play!
In this article, we’re going to take a look at the top five Oculus Quest 2 games that will give you a new dimension of gaming. Let’s begin our ‘quest’ down to the bottom!
Arizona Sunshine is a horror-survival zombie game with a good sense of humour. The game might have a shorter storyline but it’s pretty exciting from beginning to end. Arizona Sunshine is a first-person shooter game and features a total of 25 different combat weapons to fight the undead hordes. It has two modes campaign and horde and both of them can be played either in single player or multiplayer modes.
Arizona Sunshine is one of the oldest games available for the Oculus Quest 2, being released back in 2016. However, it has stood the test of time as the game has pretty neat graphics and audio, bringing the survival experience right before your eyes.
The current price of the game on the Oculus site is $39.99.
Resident Evil 4
If you really thought that Resident Evil won’t find itself on VR devices, you couldn’t have been more wrong. As one of the best-selling horror franchises in gaming history, Resident Evil 4 is the first game from the series to be launched for Oculus Quest 2. While the fourth part of the series was released way back in 2005,a remake was released on October 21, 2021 specifically for the Oculus Quest.
If you ever played the first Resident Evil 4 game, you won’t find any difference, except an elevated gaming experience that immerses you in the world of mind-controlled cultists. The story kicks off with the protagonist Leon S. Kennedy, who is tasked to save the president’s daughter from a mysterious village in Spain. Unlike other Resident Evil games, the fourth one features humans as your enemies and not the usual mutated Umbrella monsters.
The price for Resident Evil 4 for Oculus Quest 2 is $39.99.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners
The Walking Dead took the TV show world by a storm in the winter of 2010.

There are few Walking Dead games for PC and mobile, but now there’s one for Oculus Quest 2.

Tetris Effect: Connected
The first release of Tetris was three decades ago and this classical game isn’t going away anytime soon. The legendary brick game from GameBoy and early Nintendo is now available for Oculus Quest 2. The premise of the game is pretty much the same as fan remember it, with a few tweaks and features here and there.
In the Occulus Quest version of Tetris you can stop time in order to clear lines and make space for new bricks. But the most amazing feature – it’s co-op for Oculus Quest 2! It’s hard to imagine Tetris being anything other than a single players game, but its VR version, let’s play with friends- hence the name connected!
The price for Tetris Effect: Connected is $29.99 on Oculus.com
Blade and Sorcery: Nomad
Blade and Sorcery: Nomad is one of those ‘Quest 2’ games only, unavailable for other VR devices. It’s a medieval fantasy sandbox that gives you the option to customize your fighting style through an interactive and physics-driven combat system. Although the game needs more updates and a final touch with the graphics, it’s a pretty good one. The game is similar to all MMO-RPG games where you can fight in arenas, or defeat a wave of enemies.
The price for the game is now set at $19.99.
