  1. wow. Its like they are not even trying. They have this great platform to give us some great new experience, but still they only throw out the same shit-games they have made the last 15 years. Come up with something new. I was about to get a vr headset, but as of now its not worth it.

  2. A lot of these look like simple gimick concepts… I think Ill wait for gen 2 or 3 before I consider buying any headset systems.

  3. "Unfortunately details are scarce because their website is entirely in Korean."

    Gee, if only there were some way to find out what it says.

  4. Where are you getting your Alison Road information re a 2018 release? The website, twitter and Facebook pages haven't been updated in well over a year and the game looked dead

  5. Why does anything that looks decent only on ps vr!? I have an oculus and the content is just so bad and simply feels like a complete waist of money buying an oculus. Everything just feels like a tech demo. The games are just trash unfortunately.

  6. Okay for real though? There's already not many people investing in VR due to its price. NOW we as consumers must deal with game maker companies partnering with other VR companies in order to make the games EXCLUSIVE to one headset or the other. When can they just open their eyes and make every game available for all? At that point, it would come down to price matching one another which would ultimately get more people involved in the best headset for them. Right now, it's a load of bullshit to have to switch between headsets in order to play certain games. I'm a PC gamer and I like VR. Why the fuck do I have to go out and buy a PS4 with their VR headset in order to play half the titles out there? At this point, it's just a battle of VR headset companies of who can contract the best games for their people.

  7. I hate to be that guy who says somethings dead but really if this is the best VR games coming for 2018, then Vr is dead because most of these look like indie crap. there are some good indie games so I'm not saying they suck just for that but none of these look like premium titles with that said i hope there are better games coming

  8. https://gamejolt.com/games/tombobreakervr/295298
    Demo of my game for VR.
    Action Parkour game, like Indiana Jones, or Tomb Raider in VR

  9. I don't think the person whos commentating this video know what a "designed completely for vr" game is. Maybe someday developers will stop being lazy and make a real vr game. There was only 1 on this list

  10. virtual reality should mean virtual reality yes .so why do these games look like something you were playing in the 80s 90s .i think il skip till they actually make one that means reality

  11. I really like your videos. As a Vive owner, I'd really like to see your VR recommendations broken into different videos for different platforms. I'd prefer to watch a video just containing games that are actually available to my system. Lumping them altogether is great for people just curious about VR, or trying to decide which headset to buy, or maybe even the rare person who owns all 3 major VR headsets. But I think the majority of us who are into VR, and on the hunt for the newest and upcoming games, probably have our foot heavily in one camp.
    Either way, I've enjoyed your videos, it's just all the exclusives for headsets I don't own, usually just get skipped over.

  12. Overload, sure hope it ends up on more than just the crap tastic PSVR… Even mixed reality spanks on PSVR about a hundred times over… man.. anyway, it is so clearly a Descent and/or Forsaken clone… Or at least made in their image… I'd love to play it, but there's no way I'm buying a freaking PS for it. It is nice to see that the advent of the PSVR and the platform itself is driving development… Just sad that PSVR is such a low end, option-less, crappy controller having, non transferable experience. Can't take a title, regardless of how nice it is, which is made to work with ice cream cone controllers or an actual game pad, a low res screen with extremely primitive tracking, and make it work on an actual device like a vive or rift… or even WMR like the Samsung Odyssey. Just a real shame is all… Sony is helping, but not as much as they could be had they made a real device entry instead of a google cardboard for a console.

  13. VR is like mobile gaming right now. I don’t want more of these half ass over priced indie games. I want more AAA games like Skyrim vr, fallout vr, and resident evil 7

  14. This is the new VR technology thats upcoming , they look like PS2 Games. The wrong ppl are creating games , because their creativity and intellect is limited.

  15. As long as the walking dead movement is similar to what we see here and not the stupid teleport movement like payday 2 vr.

  16. Hi whatoplay! you So Great!
    I hope you can introduce games that are scheduled to be released after this video!
    For example, A VR game “ Throw Anything” is gonna launch soon and I am highly expecting it.
    If you don't mind, take a look!

  17. The future of gaming is vitural reality for seniors , where theybcan take strolls meet ppl like them all over the world

  18. I love VR and its great. but they need to start making quality games for it. It reminds me of what happened to the PS Vita. We are paying anywhere from $5-$60 and its not even a finished product, but more of a demo. there are a few great titles that are full games. but nothing pisses me off more than spending $15 to $20 on a game just to find out it was a 10 min demo. plus a lot of the developers need to work on the graphics side and making the games look a lot better. Disney's Coco looks stunning as well as Robo recall and both of these are free. If developers just keep making shit and charging good money for it. It's going to die out just like the Vita did.

  19. The American Dream would be to kick the shit out of losers like the one's that made that game. lol

  20. Experience 26 dry explanations of games that arnt here yet. Read by someone reading off a script while medicated on Vallium.

  21. your lists are always the worst out there… for example: where is "contagion vr: outbreak"? – you can already play the demo on steam and its SO AMAZING in all aspects!!!

  22. 26 awful games. At this rate I'll never buy VR. Just isn't worth the layout because the games are so awful. 🙁

  23. Hey DUDE. Not interested in your personal comments or feelings just do a review. You're like all the so called journalists, instead of just reporting the facts you interject.

  24. your Idea of the best VR games coming 2018 are far different than mine….I can't believe the amount of crap you filled this video with…. pfff

  25. i hate when the vr game look like shit and cartoony , it suppose to be virtual reality—–> ReAlItY!!!!

  26. I love this video. Thank you for sharing. I have a question for you. I don’t have any game consoles right now but want to dive head first into vr gaming. What is the best most versatile platform or console to buy tomorrow that will get me into vr? Money is no issue. Should I wait for the next play station? Should I get ps4 slim or pro? I hear the next play station is about to drop soon. Should I wait? Anyways, I hope to hear from you soon so I can pull the trigger on getting into vr, pun intended.
