    This way we can let each other know how good/bad certain VR software/games are. Let's use this thread for our causal non critical review.

    I will start by recommending some MUST HAVE experience:

    1. The Blu. This is one of the best VR initial experience to show people who have never experienced VR.

    2. Space Priate Trainer. MUST HAVE!! Gets any one from age 7 to 70 either male or female to fall in love with VR instantly. Fast pace shooting is always the best. Not too demanding on GPU either.

    3. Eleven Table Tennis VR. Another master piece. With recent updates to introduce more environments and adjustable options it is amazing how good this game is. Replay value is through the roof. I find myself playing at least 30mins per day after my other exercises. Fun and healthy.

    4. The lab. Made by Valve, need I say more?

    I have only played the regular version, but I've heard POLLEN is a pretty good VR title. It's a full on space/science fiction adventure game.

    Haven't tried it. I am checking it out now. Steam is now so bloated with all kinds of cash grabbing VR title. We really need some screening to find some gems within a whole bunch of trash.

    Talking about trashy VR, this one takes the top on my list:

    I've got some to add then..
    H3- (Hotdogs horseshoes and handgrenades aka a mouthful) happens to be one of my favorites so far.
    Universe sandbox┬▓- fun, eats CPU cores for breakfast lunch and dinner, it's striking without vr but in vr it is awestriking.
    Project Cars- Fun, vr seems fluid, however the menus don't seem entirely built for vr interfacing.
    Pipejob- It's worth the money as a laugh, the menu is clunky (requiring you to walk to the edge of your space to press a button) but well worth it as a funny party game to watch everyone suck at plumbing.
    Bigscreen- Awesome to have your monitors big and in your face.

    I want someone to make a list of good vr games I can spend my life savings on during the end of summer steam sale. I just spent 15 on keep talking and don't explode and I'm excited about that one.

    Has someone made a list like that, and if so, could someone link me to it?

    Hopefully whoever elects to do this gets a good amount rated by then. Steam sales seem to be most of the people around here's wallet's kryptonite..

    Is it awkward to play EVE without any joysticks or gaming wheels?

    Sorta? I havent played EVE regularly, but the controller is intuitive and flies like something you would expect out of a game like it.
