Battlezone is a lot of fun. Worthwhile buy. I normally play dual inverted, but that isn't a problem (at least in this game for em) in VR - you can invert only the shooting.

Driveclub is gimped by the graphics, but I would get it if you have the season pass discount. It's very very good, especially, sorry @Neolit and Push Square, with a wheel . And the cars! Look at the cars from inside!

Things beginning with Rez..
Infinite is awesome, it really is and I wish that I'd bought Thumper now along with it, because whilst they're not the same they share similar stuff. Rez Infinite is a buy. If you used to play arcade games and you're of an age, then you don't need any instructions. Its main mechanics are revealed very very quickly - by intuition. That doesn't mean it's shallow, it means it works.

The Kitchen demo. Jesus. I watched a stream of it a few hours ago, and then played it 5 minutes ago. If Rezident(!) EVII can do that for the rest of the game, it will be fantastic. In the demo there's a lot of shimmering from the AA, but I hope PSPRo or a patch fixes it. Did I scream? Yes, twice, the last one like a girl. Go and play it, it lasts 3 or 4 minutes. You will defecate.

Ocean descent is obviously only a demo too. It was my first experience of PSVR (I had some stuff with Cardboard and iPhone prior) and I head butted my wheel leaning in for a closer look at a stingray earlier today. So that's not immersive at all - /sarcasm - I completely forgot what was in front of me in real life.

If you're not sure about EV, then try EG - I think its about 7 quid and it's made me want to buy Valkyrie

I should add that I've had no motion sickness issues and am really pleased with the job that Sony gave me. In all seriousness, this is a good bit of kit. If you can afford it, without skimping on other stuff, then for me, I'd be getting one immediately.

It's games. Changing.

Alumette is free, the music is really good - FF-esque - and worth a download.

I recommend job simulator and batman for the amazingly immersive use of the move controllers. I can't wait until we get gloves and finger tracking.

If you haven't downloaded the free Allumette short film then do so immediately. I will happily pay for experiences like that.

I have just got half way through Bound and thought it was amazing. I can see the lower review score it got for the non VR version but I found the game very emotional and beautiful in VR. Not everyone's cup of tea but best experience on VR for me.

After two days I am actually quite impressed with the PSVR. Just finished athree hour non-stop play of Loading Human and it blew me away. Especially the virtual manipulation of 3d-objects and the interaction with them completely changes the degree of immersion into the game. Minor Spoiler: While holding a virtual pad in my right hand, I first used my left hand to scroll the pad and then entered coordinates into a second computer. It felt absolutely real. While doing this you could look around a lab where a 3d hologram of space was being projected. Really NICE.
Several other games also surprised me, in a good way: EVE was very smooth, Driveclub, although graphically not as good as the original felt very immersive and Thumper and Rigs are VERY fast thrillrides. Kitchen scared the ..... out of me (seeing a very scary face invade your personal space is intimidating and disconcerting). Going back in now.

I have batman, until dawn: rush of blood, job simulator, & Rez infinite. Any recommendations for the next best game I don't have?

Absolute Must-Buys
DriveClub VR (just excellent, brilliant VR game)
Battlezone (so fluid and amazing gameplay, top notch)
Arkham VR (SO. FREAKING. COOL.)
Eve Valkyrie (This is just all around high end VR fun, even I got sucked into matchmaking and I hate online usually)
Thumper ("wow" doesn't even begin to cover it. Best indie VR launch game? Possibly)
Rez Infinite (feels like you're inside Tron universe, for real inside it)
VR Worlds London Heist (oh my gosh, such a great little experience. More of this please)
Alumette (Free. Amazing. Unique. No reason not to grab this, you'll love it)
VR Playroom Robot Rescue (only 3D platformer in VR I'm aware of, this deserves its own game, seriously)
Resident Evil 7 Kitchen Demo (too much horror for me, but it was incredible)

Good Games- Good For Price And Add To Library Once You Own All The Above
Eve Gunjack (solid, fun shooting, not really deep but for $10 hey, it adds to the VR lineup nicely)
Tumble (really solid game here, physics based puzzle game like Art of Balance, enjoyed it a lot)
*Harmonix VR (don't waste $ buying this- just try the demo... there's a cool part where you paint 3D space with your wand)
Until Dawn (I hated it but I hate horror, otherwise it was an ok game if you don't mind jump scares and the grotesque)

Didn't Really Like
Hatsune Miku VR Future Live (so much missed potential, should have been an actual rhythm game not waving wands)
Harmonix VR (aside from the novelty that can be experienced from the demo, this game sucks, expected more from Harmonix)

Havent Tried Yet
Volume (waiting for update to download)
Super Stardust Ultra (waiting for update to download)
Hustle Kings VR (waiting for U.K. import)
Super Hyper Cube (waiting for price drop)

@get2sammyb: It really does. Took me a bit to get used to resetting the camera so this might put some off and the game play isn't deep but it is achingly beautiful in 3d. I hadn't considered platforming as something that VR would work with but it shows a lot of potential.

DriveClub VR didn't set well with me at all. I was out within 15mins. I'll try it again in a couple of months (it was that bad), but as of right now I'm regretting buying that outright especially as it was on the demo...

However, Rigs is living up to my expectations. Great game. I'm doing shorter play sessions (<1 hour) to get used to the aiming and movement.

I'm starting to think that the majority of these VR titles should come with demos. Everyone reacts differently and with Sony's notorious refund policy it's probably for the best to offer up demos so people can try before buy.

I am with the previous poster on driveclub. I want to like it and it was the one i looked forward to the most, but in reality its not there. Distance graphics are way too vague, that includes the direction you need to go at the end of a straight, sometimes its just too fuzzy. Tht said its still playable, though for me it did bring a bit of queazyness at times. Then again, so did the luge on vr worlds. The space/scavenger game on vr worlds also played havoc with my guts when jumping around.

I just posted on another thread that super stardust VR is a really good (and cheap) game, having both the original style game along with a battlezone type in vehicle vr mode.

I am spending way too much time on the shooting range in vr worlds london heist. The game itself is way too short but at times its awesome and a good example of vr.

So having played for a couple days, I can say the dizziness goes away. And leaves you starving for fast movement and spins and all the stuff that initially was a turn off.

At first, Scavengers Odyssey made me dizzy, as did DriveClub when using the behind the wheel view, as did Eve Valkyrie and even Battlezone.

But now? I'm using turbo boosts in Battlezone constantly, advanced modes for Rez and RIGS, doing insane spins and loops in Eve... DruveClub behind the wheel... it's amazing. Just gotta get your "VR sea legs", as another member put it.

I gotta say though, Volume was pretty cool in VR, but Super Stardust Ultra was amazing. That review made it sound lame but I think it's one of the absolute best VR launch games there is. It's like the model VR experience, what you imagine VR to be. That's what it is. Just crazy fun. I vouch for Stardust VR mode, it's seriously awesome. And even the normal game is cool as heck.

@JaxonH: I've been playing constantly too, and agree with the recommendations with regard to the titles we have mutually. I've had motion sickness on one occasion only with PSVR: Reversing in Driveclub for the first time. Then no problems.

Is EVE: Valkyrie worth the money? It's a lot (I'm using the UK store, so £55), but I really want to buy it. But I could get Until Dawn RoB, Batman and Thumper for less. What would you do? I've already spanked loads on VR games this month and need to be picky for a bit, instead of 'Drawfull'.

@Drawfull:
Well I'm not a big MP guy so Eve isn't as good for me as someone who wants online play. But even that is still worth it.

But honestly, I'd go Batman and Thumper and whatever else. Cause those 2 games are amazing. Also Super Stardust Ultra is so good. And PSVR Worlds. I don't care what anyone says, that's a fantastic game. Tried the luge last night and leaned back in my recliner, I felt like I was really there. Way more so than other VR games. So much I got butterflies and had a crazy here reaction when I crashed. So scary.

Even the SportsBall game in Worlds is amazing.

@Drawfull:
Ya it can be. Practice makes perfect.

One time experiences that are musts would be Batman, Robot Rescue from Playroom, Allumette, London Heist and Scavengers Odyssey from VR Worlds.

But I've just been stuck on DriveClub mostly now that I've kinda tried everything. I almost beat Rez, and a good ways into Thumper, and spent a decent chunk of time in Stardust VR, and a few other games. But DriveClub Tour in single player has so much to do. Love it.

Think Battlezone and RIGS will be next to dig into after DriveClub is spent. They're both super awesome games.

Can't wait to try PSVR and all these games but I'll be picking up a headset when it's either a bit cheaper or the next model is out, and when all these games are dirt cheap. Too many other expenses at the moment to splash out on this at a premium unfortunately.

@JaxonH: Yeah, Driveclub is getting most of my attention. Did you spot that one of the trophies is called VR Sea Legs or similar?
Also, a bit of a tip for new players - especially if you think you'll be susceptible to motion sickness: Play the tour in order, as the first few tracks are much more gentle than some of the stuff you can just pick and race from the get-go.

Rigs is great fun, and I'm generally terrible at FPS stuff. Battlezone is good, but I don't normally do online and am finding it hard going in single player. For me, Rigs is the better of the two.

Ya Battlezone is hard. I started over on easy mode cause I was just getting destroyed on Normal.

RIGS is amazing as you say. Love the death match and the one where you get overdrive and jump through ring
