List of games supporting surround-sound speaker setups

Heroic Explorer
Hi all

I hope DaftNDirect won't mind but I took his idea and made a thread dedicated to VR gamers who wish, or are forced to use surround-sound speakers.

Surround-sound setups require their games to have a fixed 'soundstage' for their sound to be accurately positioned for their speakers. Many VR games e.g. Vader Immortal have clearly been design with headphone only headsets, like the Quest, because it's the movement of your head that positions the sound which is ideal for headphones, instead of the soundstage being fixed which is required for speaker setups.

I have rated these games as "OK", "OK with Issues" and "Headphones Only".  I would be very grateful if anyone from the community wishes to add or update any game.
