Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality
If you're a fan of Rick and Morty, this Virtual Rick-ality game will be right up your alley. You're a Morty clone who gets to tinker around in the workshop garage and plenty of alien worlds; solve puzzles, collect goodies, or just mess around to your heart's content.
Equal parts hilarity and insanity, Virtual Rick-ality is a true homage to everyone's favorite comic duo for about $30.00 on the Oculus Store.
Another shooter geared for room-scale action, Raw Data is as gorgeous as it is frantic. Take a deep dive into Eden Corp. to find out just what exactly is going on their research and development departments, and, in the process, eliminate a few hundred robots hellbent on murdering you.
If you like a workout while you play and you don't mind some online co-op action thrown in there at the same time, this is one for you for only $39.99!
Not only does Rec Room have a bunch of multiplayer games, including paintball, frisbee golf, dodgeball, 3D charades, and paddle ball, it is completely free for everyone. This online multiplayer game lets you meet friends in a lobby before embarking on an adventure.

Working in real life is rarely fun, but working in VR is a blast with Job Simulator. Fill orders as a cook, change tires as a car mechanic, toss staplers around and deal with HR as an office clerk, and ring customers through the checkout as a store clerk. This is hardly scratching the surface; you'll have to try it yourself to discover all the magic within. Great for all ages, grab Job Simulator for a lot of humor and not a lot of hard work.

Space Pirate Trainer
With retro graphics and a booming soundtrack, Space Pirate Trainer will hit a sweet spot for anyone who longs for those old days of arcade glory. Your spaceship is docked on a small platform, and droids seem to be out to kill you. You have two pistols with multiple firing modes to fend them off, plus you can switch them out any time for shields.
Another first-person shooter that takes full advantage of your entire VR space, Space Pirate Trainer will have you ducking and dodging incoming shots just as much as you'll be firing back for only $14.99 on the Oculus Store!
If you're looking for something that puts your intelligence to the test, Fantastic Contraption is a real challenger. There is a wide variety of courses to traverse, but there's a catch; you have to build big contraptions from scratch and have them navigate to the finish line. When you run out of levels that come with the game, grab levels other players have created. Feel free to contribute to the ever-growing collection of puzzles with the simple creation tools built right into the game.

A lot of VR first-person shooters use the zombie or future tech trope to deliver an exciting experience, but not Onward. This is a hardcore military simulator that will test your patience just as much as it will test your aim. It might take you awhile to learn all the controls and to get a hang of the dual-controller aiming system, but the payoff is deeply rewarding. Play in a squad with your pals, and take advantage of your entire VR space as you crouch, lie prone, and peek corners to get an edge on the other team.
Onward is currently in Early Access for about $25 on Steam!
