  • The Entire VR Industry in One Little Email

    The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox. 

    While Oculus doesn’t offer much publicly in the way of understanding how well individual apps are performing across its VR storefronts, it’s possible to glean some insight by looking at apps relative to each other. Here’s a snapshot of the top 20 Oculus Rift games and apps.

    Some quick qualifications before we get to the data dump:

    • Paid and free apps are separated
    • Early access titles are not represented
    • Only apps with more than 100 reviews are represented
    • Some apps may have benefited from hardware bundling (like Robo Recall and Lucky’s Tale)
    • Rounded ratings may appear to show ‘ties’ in ratings for some applications, but the ranked order remains correct
    • This is a snapshot as of today, expect positions to shift over time
    • Best Rated Paid Oculus Rift Apps

      The rating of each application is an aggregate of user reviews and a useful way to understand the general reception of each title by customers.

      The number of ratings often gives a ballpark idea of the relative sales of each title; a title with more ratings is likely to have sold better than a title with less, though there’s certainly an unknown margin of error.
