Leading Games that Will Be Even Better in Virtual Reality
Games That Would be Even Better in Virtual Reality
The world of VR is expanding every single day. It was only a few short years ago when we had simple and rather buggy games; nowadays, almost any new virtual reality title is incredibly fun and engaging.
However, some games haven’t received the VR treatment yet, which many think they should. Virtual reality is a new experience for many, and these games could take VR to the next level.
Grand Theft Auto
While GTA San Andreas has a VR option now, and GTA V has a VR mod, many people want to see a standalone and fully fleshed-out GTA VR game. The style and gameplay of GTA are perfect for VR, and many also think it is the next logical step for the franchise.
Considering the size and scope of most GTA games, it could be a while before we see a virtual reality version from Rockstar, but ever since first-person was introduced into GTA V, more people have been calling for a Rockstar-designed VR GTA.
Call of Duty
Another series that is perfect for virtual reality is Call of Duty. While Jackal Assault is the first step into a Call of Duty VR experience, the multiplayer is set up perfectly as a standalone virtual reality game.
With VR already moving past just being comprised of a headset and controller, CoD can benefit greatly from the running platforms and VR weapons that have been designed.
Escape from Tarkov
Most first-person shooter games would be amazing in virtual reality but Escape from Tarkov is one of those titles that can combine FPS action with stealth, adventure, and skill. Tarkov would also require something unique from VR gamers; precision.
Considering the game aims to be as realistic as possible, virtual reality would be the best way to transport you into the game. While many believe there would need to be some tweaks, there is little to no reason why Tarkov couldn’t be a hit in VR.
God of War
God of War is easily one of, if not the best third-person action/adventure franchise of all time. The world you are in, the gameplay, puzzles, and storylines only seem to get more impressive with each new title, and now some gamers want the developers to go down the VR route; and it is no surprise why.
Imagine being in a world where you can fly, do incredible combat maneuvers, face off against Gods and Goddesses, and experience what Kratos sees from his perspective. While it would take years to develop, a VR God of War game could be a complete game changer.
League of Legends
Many wouldn’t think a game like League of Legends could be made better in VR. You need an exceptional mouse and keyboard control and map awareness if you are to be good at the game, let alone great.
However, as virtual reality systems become increasingly advanced, it could become possible to give players the League of Legends experience in VR while simultaneously giving them the control they want and need.
Valorant has quickly taken over as one of the go-to FPS games. It combines the combat and tactics of Counter-Strike and Rainbow 6 and throws in the magic and abilities you would see in a game like League of Legends.
Once again, it is not surprising that another FPS game would be perfect for VR, and Valorant is no exception. It would also be one of the “easiest” games to port to VR while not losing the action and skill that has pulled in so many players.
Age of Empires
Age of Empires is another title that, with a lot of work, could be feasible and incredible in VR. the first question that many would have is how you could put a real-time strategy game into a first-person perspective.
A few years back, a game called Rise & Fall: Civilizations at War offered players a first-person view of an RTS, which means that part of the game is possible. You could also simply click on buildings to see their upgrades and add a birds-eye view option for city design and battle. The point is a VR RTS experience isn’t as far-fetched as you may believe.
