What are the best VR games?

SpottiChen

I know that good examples are The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR or Doom VFR, which are based on existing (albeit sometimes dated) titles. 

But I think these are only for beginners who are making their first forays into VR gaming, or franchise fans who want to try their most beloved game in a new way. So I'm wondering what are other best VR games out there? I mean the best VR games you can buy today.

 Thanks in advance

The best VR games are racing sims and flight combat sims. You get full multiplayer and infinite number of hours worth of fun. 

Asseto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizone
Project Cars 2

IL-2 and Elite Dangerous 

Other games:

HL Alyx
Saints and Sinners 
Lone Echo
From Other Suns
Asgard's Wrath
Stormland

There are some really great smaller games like West World VR or FreeDiver.
Echo Combat is a great VR multiplayer game
Vox Machinae is also a really good VR multiplayer game.

But there is not such thing as a "best game." It's all personal preference. I totally disagree that Doom VFR or Skyrim VR are for "beginners." Just the opposite. You really need your VR legs to fully enjoy those games. And it takes some work to adjust them to your taste.

That will obviously depend on what you're looking for. "Best game" is a notion that simply does not exist...

Recently, I bought The Walking Dead Saints&Sinners, I'm having a blast! The physics in this game are insane. Like, you have to put strength if you want to pierce the skull of a zombie with your knife. That's terrific!

If you like FPS, you'll want to try either Pavlov or Onward. They're pretty similar, but Onward has more content I think.
If you like racing games, there's so many of them. Assetto Corsa Competizione is the one that stands out the most in my opinion.
If you like space, you'll want to try out Elite:Dangerous. It's a very complex game, but it's one of the best VR space games.
If you like horror... man, you have SO MANY games to play. Dreadhalls, Affected, Paranormal:Activity, FNAF Help Wanted, you have so many choices.
Obviously, there's also Half:Life Alyx. I also recommend Windlands (both games), the feels of flying through the air is one of the best VR has to offer!
