The popularity of virtual reality (VR) gaming is on the rise and the hype around the new Sony PlayStation VR 2 (PSVR2) continues to grow. While we are still waiting for the PSVR2’s official release, there are several existing games that we would love to see updated or upgraded for the latest headset.
We have put together a list of the best PSVR games that we would love to see make a comeback with updated graphics and improved gameplay on the PSVR2.
Arca’s Path (PS4)
This PSVR game was not noticed by many players, but it is a must-play for the fans of the Super Monkey Ball genre. The game involves controlling a marble and rolling it through different obstacles from A to B. With enhanced graphics and haptic feedback from the PSVR2 Sense Controllers, this game would have an incredible immersive experience.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission (PS4)
Astro Bot Rescue Mission is arguably one of the best PSVR games available. The game features 3D platforming and puzzle-solving elements set in comical, vibrant and innovative virtual settings. With an upgrade to the PSVR2, we hope to see even more content and an already outstanding experience become even more engaging.
Batman: Arkham VR (PS4)
Take on the mantle of the Dark Knight as you investigate crimes and protect your closest allies in the awesome Batman: Arkham VR. Imagine taking on this immersive VR experience with upgraded visuals and haptic feedback, delivering an experience like none other.
Imagine taking on hordes of tanks with a mind-blowing VR experience, Battlezone on the PSVR was a launch title back in October 2016. The experience was a hit from the start, and improving upon the original with enhancements for the PSVR2 would be a fantastic decision for any virtual reality gamer.
Blood & Truth (PS4)
This is one of the most engaging PSVR games available, enhanced with a crime-drama story setting that makes the immersion incredible. The game does have connectivity issues with the outdated PS Move controllers. The PSVR2 Sense Controllers’ much-improved tracking capabilities would eliminate that issue while introducing new interaction possibilities.
Let’s face it, heading a ball in also in football feels great, but how about doing it in VR? Headmaster on the PSVR is all about heading footballs through varying challenges, and the gameplay is enjoyable. With haptic feedback from the PSVR2 Sense Controllers, players would have more engaging interactions and feelings during gameplay.
How We Soar (PS4)
This is a beautiful and story-driven PSVR title that features an author writing his first book, and you get to fly on the back of a bird through various pop-up book environments. An updated version for the PSVR2 with enhanced graphics would enhance the game’s already gorgeous papery landscapes.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes (PS4)
It’s the only local co-op experience available on PSVR, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a brilliantly complex game where communication serves as the key to success. Upgraded visuals for the PSVR2 would undoubtedly be welcome because the game’s popularity within the VR community is still quite significant.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition (PS4)
Minecraft becoming compatible on the PSVR was a surprise, but the possibility of an enhanced version for the PSVR2 with haptic feedback is mouth-watering. Minecraft is open-ended, chill, and creative, which means users could spend hours in the virtual world the game presents.
Statik is a cleverly designed, puzzle-solving experience that deserves a spot on this list. With haptic feedback from the PSVR2 Sense Controllers, players would have a more engaging experience as they solve devious conundrums and attempt to escape Dr Ingen’s laboratory.
SUPERHOT VR (PS4)
SUPERHOT VR is one of the best first-person shooting puzzlers ever designed for virtual reality. With the added immersion, a PSVR2 would provide, and improvements in haptic feedback, players would experience an even more engaging VR experience.
Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown (PS4)
If you enjoy narrative-driven Dungeons & Dragons-like games, Table of Tales: The Crooked Crown is an excellent PSVR game to play. It would be great to see a new upgraded version for the PSVR2 with some additional solo-focused experiences for the individual player.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition (PS5)
It’s impossible to talk about RPGs without discussing Skyrim. The game has been ported to almost every platform imaginable, but with a PSVR2 version, users could explore Tamriel like never before, giving the game the attention it deserves in the VR world.
The Lost Bear (PS4)
Set in a theatre, The Lost Bear tells the tale of a side-scrolling game that blends lovely visuals and immersive gameplay. With an enhanced PSVR 2 version, the game’s aesthetics could be even more immersive, creating more engaging experiences for players.
Werewolves Within (PS4)
Finally, Werewolves Within is a fun and engaging multiplayer game with roles assigned to each player with unique objectives to eliminate the enemy while keeping allies alive simultaneously. With the decrease in the online community, bringing Werewolves Within to the PSVR2 would bring in new audiences and give the game more life than it currently has.
