Virtual reality games are the next step in the evolution of video games. And only a blind man can deny it. Yes, modern VR headsets are often expensive and require a powerful PC, which currently hinders the development and diffusion of technology. But in the near future this will change and a VR headset will become as commonplace as a smartphone in your pocket.
However, you can always plunge into virtual worlds using the aforementioned Android smartphone and inexpensive mobile VR glasses .

You need to understand that the difference between mobile VR gaming and games on full VR headsets (HTC Vive, Oculus Quest, Windows Mixed Reality, etc.) is very significant. It’s like the difference between playing on PS1 and PS5. However, you will still get a general idea of virtual reality. And then you can decide whether to consider purchasing more serious VR headsets.
So, here’s a list of the best VR games. Most of them are available on almost any android smartphone equipped with a gyroscope. However, some of the games will only launch on smartphones with Daydream VR support.

The best VR games for most Android devices

It’s just a pity that the game is very short.
