The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, from Bethesda
Price: $59.99 (Rift, Vive, Windows)
Bethesda’s legendary role-playing game finally makes the jump from PSVR to PC. Skyrim VR on Rift, Vive and Windows features full 360-degree tracking, improved graphics, and an entire world’s worth of content. This is one of the biggest and best games you can play in VR right now and we definitely recommend you pick it up.
Island Time is a charming little survival game in which you find yourself on a stranded patch of land trying to eat enough food to stay alive. You combine items to make tools that make it easier to catch fish and steal coconuts. It’s a pretty intriguing concept, though the game is sadly a little short on content.

Everyone’s favorite monkeys get their own VR game, tying into the recent film trilogy. Crisis is a short experience in which you play as one of the intelligent apes, captured and being tested on in a human facility. It’s your task to escape, which will involve clambering up pipes and gunning down enemies. It’s a little short and repetitive, but a fair amount of fun.
