Role-playing games allow players to immerse themselves in a different world full of excitement and new experiences in a variety of different settings. Virtual reality is able to further enhance this immersion as it allows the player to feel as if they are truly there in the game world they are exploring.
When Valve released the Valve Index, it gave Steam consumers the opportunity to try out a wide variety of RPG titles that sent them to other realities through the power of technology. These are by far the best RPGs on Steam for the Valve Index that gamers should enjoy.
ten Chronicles of Karnage
Players can explore the darkest dungeons alone or with friends in this epic RPG adventure to save the world. They will push back the monsters that appeared from the rift that formed in the fabric of time due to the alignment of the planet every five thousand years.
VR makes this title not only immersive but enhances combat. When players are fighting enemies, the speed at which they swing their controller has an effect on how much damage a hit deals.
As a member of the Ruinsmagus guild, it’s a player’s job to help strengthen it by collecting resources, completing quests, and learning a variety of magical spells. Although the story is amazing, with over twenty-five quests advancing the main story, the world that players can explore is not only vivid but also enjoyable.
As you stroll through the bustling streets of Grand Amnis, the town the player will call home. Befriending the citizens or enjoying the view while drinking a cup of coffee makes even the little things in this roleplaying game even more interesting to play.
8 Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond
Take on the well-known first-person shooter title Medal of Honor to VR was a smart thing to do. Many gamers have mixed feelings about the game set during World War II; the immersive experience of being a soldier during this time is exciting but can be challenging as it puts the player in the shoes of someone who may have struggled.
With a single-player story that touches on extremely deep themes, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond does exactly that by participating in this historical period.
seven Tales of Glory
Going back even further in time, Tales of Glory lets players take on the role of a medieval knight charging into battle with his men against opposing forces, facing steel on the battlefield.
Gamers who enjoyed games like Mount and Blade will enjoy their time in VR as the game draws inspiration from it and implements its own RPG features. Players can recruit more soldiers to their army, manage their kingdom, or manipulate lords into doing their bidding – anything is possible when they hope to write Tales of Glory.
Take the Tabletop genre and make it digital, Demoo allows players to bring their friends on a dark and gloomy dungeon crawler adventure as they essentially play Dungeons and Dragons together. After choosing their class, players can choose between a variety of campaigns to run, with more still on the way.
Standing around a VR board, players take turns moving their pieces and exploring dungeons while defeating enemies through dice rolls and building the perfect deck of cards to use against their foes.
5 legendary tales
Fight in an ever-changing dungeon in this action role-playing game, legendary tales allows players to make their own adventures alone or with friends. Using classic ARPG mechanics, players naturally build their character over the course of their adventure, improving their skills as they battle their enemies.
It’s not all dungeon combat, however. Players can also collect a variety of items through the help of RNG; they all vary in rarity and usage, allowing the player to experience not only the game’s physics, but their playstyle as well.
4 Zenith: the last city
Explore a fully open world in VR with Zenith: the last city. This fantasy RPG world is not only beautiful, it also has the space to accommodate countless other players, making it a well-manned MMO.
There’s plenty to do while exploring, whether it’s joining parties and guilds, taking on challenging bosses, or exploring the depths of eerie dungeons on your own. Indie company Ramen VR hopes to continue developing this MMO while testing the limits of virtual reality to create a world players will get lost in for hours.
3 Hellsplit: Arena
Going back to medieval times but with a touch of darkness, Hellsplit is a horror slasher that lets players engage in combat that claims to be physically accurate while defeating gruesome enemies such as skeletons.
Hellsplit: Arena takes it a step further than that in its dark fantasy world through an intriguing campaign besides just being able to take on enemies. This allows players to feel like they have a role to play in Hellsplit rather than just being like any other VR arena fighting game.
2 The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners
fans of The Walking Dead or zombie survivors will want to try The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinnersespecially since it is by far one of the best Zombie Survival titles available on the Valve Index.
Every decision matters as players complete quests by meeting other survivors and deciding their fate while collecting their own resources. Saints and sinners relies heavily on players sticking to their choices and seeing how events in the flooded ruins of New Orleans have been overrun by zombies.
Skyrim has entertained its players for years on a variety of platforms, and its VR version offers the most immersive Skyrim possible experience. Players can officially take on the role of the Dragonborn while exploring the cold climate.
Players can feel like a part of the world as they tackle the main story or the countless side quests, like becoming a member of the Dark Brotherhood or just sitting in a town’s tavern for a beer. Players are finally free to play a role as they please.
