Because the Oculus Quest is a standalone headset, the total cost to get into VR is lower than many headsets that require expensive PCs or phones. But costs can add up quickly between spending at least $400 for the device and additional costs for any games. Luckily, there are some impressive free apps and games that you can use on your Oculus Quest.
