MetaQuest (formerly Facebook) has announced its best Oculus Quest VR titles for 2021.

Generally these are games the work on the latest generation model, that is the Quest 2 which was released at the end of 2020.

Those looking for some holiday or pandemic escapism may want to scan these picks and see if you missed something. Or maybe you’re jumping into VR for the first time. Which is where the Quest 2 comes into play — it’s easy to use, competitively priced, and sports a growing and exciting catalog of games, fitness apps, big screen video streaming apps, and a variety of other worldly simulations and experiences.

Oh: there’s also mediation for some zen in your life!
