Update: Oculus Rift is now arriving to consumers, and to mark the occasion Oculus announced a new game called Farlands will be packaged with the Rift. Players can explore a "vibrant, otherworldly planet, teeming with exotic life" in the game. A new adventure will unfold daily.
Oculus Rift is finally landing in consumers' hands, and with it are 30 games and experiences for them to indulge their virtual reality fantasies with.
I played a handful of launch games at GDC 2016 and was blown away by the variety and quality of the titles. They ranged from the delightfully simple, like Fly to KUMA, to the amazingly difficult, like ADR1FT. Oculus went for a mix with its launch titles, aiming to have something for everyone, plus wanting to see what sticks.
Rift's games, by the way, are now rated as Comfortable, Moderate and Intense. I found it helpful to know what I was walking into rather than having a headset strapped to my face and finding out a few seconds later that I was going to feel sick. You can mentally brace yourself for an intense game like Radial G before its spinning tracks make you feel like you might you lose your lunch.
