Lone Echo is my top recommendation. 
Core i7-7700k @ 4.9 Ghz | 32 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance @ 3000Mhz | 2x 1TB Samsung Evo | 2x 4GB WD Black
ASUS MAXIMUS IX HERO | MSI AERO GTX 1080 OC @ 2000Mhz | Corsair Carbide Series 400C White (RGB FTW!) 

Be kind to one another 🙂

Transference, Wilson's Heart, Red Matter, Robinson: The Journey, Mage's Tale, The Invisible Hours, Arizona Sunshine (to some degree, it's a first person shooter), A Chair in a Room, Moss, Chronos; Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, Seeking Dawn and many more VR games have awesome stories. Even Windlands 2 has a nice story - but you may prefer more adventure-like games if you want deep story-driven games.

You can't expect games at the level of Skyrim and Fallout on a platform that's been here for only 3 years, buddy. A game like this takes 5 years or more.
This is why the VR games with the best action/story ratio are ported games (so... Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 VR xD).

Dead Effect 2 VR has a full campaign and is packed with action. It's very fun, especially if you like zombie games. It has an RPG dimension and has plenty different weapons (from long range firearms like rifles or guns to short-range weapons like axes and swords). It's also multiplayer.

Also, there is Subnautica. The VR controls are kinda sh*t, but if you can bear with it it is an awesome game. It also has a little story (haven't gone deep into that yet).

Awesome - had completely forgotten about Dead Effects 2 VR - gotta try that one soon. And Subnautica is great too, once you get used to the controls and the awkward VR menus/in-your-face-VR-panels

Today I thought: "This jolly good evening I will definitely sit down and find out which 400 Skyrim mods I need - I'm sure that will be a great and fully enjoyable evening".

But then I got another thought - maybe I don't need to hurry with those exciting 400 Skyrim mods today - because:



Fortunately the Steam VR Candy Store was still open, and got this - downloading now - it's rated 9/10 based on more than 700 ratings  B)

Hmmm, this could easily turn into quite an ultra-sporty and highly exhausting evening - close to doing BoxVR for a few hours  🙂
