Best Meta Quest 2 Games, Apps and Experiences

Virtual reality can be an amazing escape, a workout or both. If you want the best self-contained VR gaming console, the Quest 2 -- previous Oculus Quest 2, now Meta Quest 2, after Facebook's name change to Meta -- is your choice. The Quest 2 is still the best VR headset to get right now, although Meta will have a new Quest 3 model next year.

After years testing games and apps across the Meta app store, there are some that I love more than all the others.

Ones I recommend to friends and family. This is that list. Right now, many of these games are also on sale for the holidays via Meta's limited-time Black Friday sale.

Even a few years into the Quest 2's release, good apps continue to arrive regularly. Though do note that to access top PC VR games like Star Wars: Squadrons or Half-Life: Alyx, you'll need to connect to a gaming PC, either wirelessly or with a USB cable. Some of these games also work with the original Quest, but a growing number of apps are are now exclusive to the Quest 2.

We'll continue to periodically update this list as new options become available.
