We couldn’t control our excitement when Valve announced the latest title in the Half-Life series (though it’s not Half-Life 3) recently. The company is calling the game its VR flagship, so you’ll need a VR headset if you want to play it. If you already have one, great. If you don’t, well, it’s up to you to buy a headset or be satisfied playing your favourite mobile casinos in the UK. But one thing is for sure — you wouldn’t want to jump into Alyx without any VR experience beforehand. This is why here we are listing 4 VR games you should play before March 2020 to get used to VR, and because they’re really good.

Beat Saber

Beat Saber
Beat Saber is music games like Audiosurf, Guitar Hero, and Rock Band brought over to VR. It’s a fast, kinetic rhythm game in which you slash through colour-coded blocks to the beat of a song with virtual laser swords. The game generates various patterns of coloured blocks according to the music that you have to hit with the right correct controller and with the correct direction.

Beat Saber is designed for a seated experience, but the high tempo and excitement is sure to keep you on your feet. You’ll get 10 songs with the game, but you’re free to create your own custom tracks using a track editor within the game.

Superhot VR
Remember the browser-based demo of Superhot in 2013? Well, you’ll agree with us when we say that the game has come a long way since then. Right now, VR seems like a natural step in its progression where it makes great use of 360-degree tracking by having enemies flank you from all sides. The game has an exciting mechanic where the time in the game moves only when you do.

You’ll be facing bright red enemies and will have to use an assortment of weapons along with your wits to clear the levels. How do you lose? A single bullet can prove fatal, so you’ll have to keep track of every single shot fired in the game. But the one thing that makes this game rather super-cool is that you can deflect incoming bullets by shooting them with your own bullets.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
That’s enough fun and games for now. It’s time for the horrors. If you’ve already played this game on PC, Xbox One, or PS4, then you may think you already know how scary this game is. No, you don’t. Remember Capcom has taken this game back to its survival horror roots where you’ll have to manage your resources and inventory. The game was also designed with VR in mind, which is why it uses the first-person perspective.

You play as Ethan Winters, a Louisiana resident whose wife went missing three ago. Your goal will be to find her by exploring the creaky old deserted house. You’ll go against the game’s freaky enemies and solve puzzles along the way. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a PS exclusive and is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the bite-sized VR games from other developers.

No Man's Sky VR

No Man’s Sky VR
Okay okay yes, No Man’s Sky was a disappointment at its launch in 2016. But it’s 2019 now, and after years of consistent, major updates, No Man’s Sky is worth considering. But it’s latest VR Mode is outstanding. And thanks to its theme of procedurally generated universe, the game is called as an infinite (virtual) reality.

Your main goal in the game is to reach the center of the universe, but you can do so much more. You can explore numerous of the game’s planets, build a home base, and battle enemy ships in space. Or you can just sit down and appreciate the massiveness of space in your ship’s cockpit. Simply said, you’ll have fun. Too much fun.
