For our money, comedy is the hardest thing to achieve in video games. How many games can you name that have consistently made you laugh out loud? Probably not many, right? Job Simulator manages to have a hilarious sense of humour and deliver a compelling PSVR experience, where you occupy a number of roles, such as a chef or office worker. The game may lack longevity, but it makes up for its short running time through sheer novelty alone.
Proving that PlayStation VR can play host to hundred hour adventures, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is transformative with Sony’s headset strapped to your face. While this is fundamentally the same fantastic role-playing game that you’ll have played on other platforms before, its enormous open world appears larger than ever in virtual reality. The sense of place as you strut through towns such as Solitude is unmatched, and while not every element of the outing translates perfectly, it’s still a staggering experience on PSVR.

Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t want to be Batman? Gotham’s chief justice dealer is both relatable and badass, characteristics which have helped the hero appeal to generation after generation of comic book fans. And in Rocksteady’s ridiculously effective power fantasy, you get to live out a couple of hours beneath the Caped Crusader’s cowl. Mixing detective work with unique story-telling, this clever experience exposes both the good and the bad sides of being Bruce Wayne.
WipEout Omega Collection really shouldn’t work, but PSVR takes an already outstanding racer to a higher plane. With some impressive comfort options and an outrageous sense of speed, Sony’s futuristic form of F1 not only looks the part in virtual reality – but it’s arguably more exciting to play as well. The fact that this feature was patched in for free by a team of two is frankly flabbergasting.
The best thing you can say about Rez Infinite is that it feels like the PSVR version has been 15 years in the making. Originally released on the Dreamcast in 2001 and ported to various other platforms in the interim, Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s rails-shooter has been waiting for virtual reality to reach its full potential. Existing inside the game’s fantasy world is a euphoric moment, and the newly realised Area X borders on biblical as you bob your head through its mesmerising landscapes.
