The 5 best PSVR games

We've have had a chance to burn through PlayStation VR's huge range of launch titles. These are the best PSVR games the platform has to offer thus far.

If you ever had any doubt the PlayStation VR would be anything less than a hit, you need only look to its expansive genre-spanning launch line-up. So many titles were released alongside Sony's classy new gadget, it was hard to keep up with what to prioritise. After spending some many intimate hours with the PlayStation VR, the finder team now has a solid idea of the titles you should add to your collection and the ones you shouldn't. Here are our top five games for PSVR so far.

5. Battlezone VR

Developer Rebellion has done a stand-up job of taking a retro action experience and making it feel like a VR native. Battlezone boasts a vibrant visual flair and hours of fun to be had with multiplayer. There are traces of a worthwhile single-player experience here too, but the real fun to be had here is with friends (virtual or otherwise).

4. PlayStation VR Worlds

Essentially the Wii Sports of PSVR, Worlds is the kind of title you put on to show off your shiny new gadget to friends and family. It's packed with five titles, ranging from high-octane shooters like The London Heist and Scavenger's Odyssey to comparably zen titles like Danger Ball and VR Luge, each showcasing some of the PSVR's finest selling points. PSVR Worlds will unfairly be passed off as a demo disc of sorts, a variety fun bag with no real depth. That's not the case. The London Heist and Scavenger's Odyssey both have intriguing, albeit short-lived, stories to tell.

3. Job Simulator

Owlchemy Labs' Job Simulator may not be exclusive to PSVR, but it's hands-down where you'll find the most joy with your new gadget. Job Simulator puts you in the gloves of a loyal job-bot, a robot tasked with performing the mundane everyday duties of office, hospitality, convenience store and automotive repair workers. Job Simulator embraces the ridiculous side of VR and will have you roaring with laughter as you force-feed other robots staplers or craft a scrumptious paper and hot sauce sandwich.

2. RIGS: Mechanised Combat League

Developer Guerrilla Games has created a so-far-unparalleled multiplayer experience for PSVR with RIGS: Mechanised Combat League. It's an extremely immersive mech-shooter with 3 v 3 matches that move along at breakneck speed. You would think that a first-person shooter with 1:1 head tracking at this speed could only spell bad news for motion sickness sufferers, but Guerilla Games have actually managed to make this one relatively quest-free.

1. Batman Arkham VR

Could it be any other? Batman Arkham VR may not be the meatiest VR title on the market, but it's by far the most immersive. Read any review and you'll see the same thing - Arkham VR makes you feel like you are Batman - and that's not too far from the absolute truth. As floors open up, your legs give way, throw a batarang, and you'll flail around like a madman in real life. It's ridiculous how quickly you become invested in virtual Gotham. As it mimics the feel and tone of Rockstar's successful Arkham series, Arkham VR is also one of the darkest titles on VR so it's probably best to keep any one under 13 restricted to target practice in the Batcave.
