VR Giant Best Free Gear VR


Ocean Rift Demo


The Ocean Rift demo will give you a great taste of what to expect from the full version, and it’s not nearly as limited as you’d imagine from something labelled “demo”. You’ll have full access to many of the experiences from the full version. Put on your scuba suit and jump in! I highly recommend starting with the “Great White Shark” experience, especially if you want something that doesn’t necessarily require any controls.



Colosse is a short, but enjoyable experience that takes place in 3D in a 360 degree environment. I found this to be a great starting point for virtual reality storytelling, as the simple graphics look very clean, controls are basically non-existent, and it’s short enough to get a taste before moving on.



Interested in something scary? Sisters has you covered. This experience uses the direction of your gaze to progress. I won’t say too much about it, other than that I recommend wearing your headphones to truly immerse yourself in the environment.

Daryle here. My time with VR Giant has come to an end. Actually, it came to an end a while ago. But fret not if you're one of the few regulars who enjoyed my content here, I have only moved places. You can now find me at Dads And where I will still be reviewing virtual reality games among other things. My time with VR Giant, especially at the height of its popularity, was one of the most amazing periods of my life. After 20 years of looking forward to virtual reality I somehow wound up with a website where I got to write about it and managed to snag a satisfying chunk of audience. I was able to foster relationships with game developers, other folks in the VR media, people at Oculus and far more VR users than I likely ever would have without a website. This is where I feel like I should thank the people who made it possible. That would be you, the reader. I've had lots of blogs in my time that no one was reading. Having an audience makes it a totally different beast. A better beast. The kind of beast you can get excited about. When you hear people say they couldn't have done it without you, turns out they actually mean it. Well, I do anyway. They might be lying to your face. There are others who I would like to thank, but they don't much care for the spotlight so I will just say thank you and they will know who they are.
