Minecraft VR

Since 2009, Minecraft has been captivating kids of all ages with its unique take on building with virtual bricks and sharing those elaborate creations with the world. After conquering every other platform and selling over 106 million copies, developer Mojang (which Microsoft bought for $2.5 billion in 2014), has brought Minecraft to Oculus Rift with the help of Doom mastermind John Carmack. As long as you’re willing to overlook that this is essentially still the same “old” game, but in VR, the experience is one of the most enjoyable out there — as long as you’re not playing for hours and hours. Unlike the PC, console, or mobile versions, spending an excessive amount of time in VR can still tire your eyes. Mojang has fixed one problem, by allowing you to pull out from a first-person perspective and into a large-screen 2D perspective when needing to turn left and right a lot, or when your eyes are tired. What makes Minecraft such a simple but addictive game on other platforms works brilliantly in VR. [$10; minecraft.net]
