    13 Best Rift, Vive, and Windows VR Horror Games To Play Right Now

    With Halloween right around the corner, we felt like it was time to start rounding up some of the very best PC VR horror games and experiences out there on Rift, Vive, and Windows VR. Ever since the PC VR headsets launched back in early 2016, almost three years ago, it’s become a go-to destination for some of the best and most terrifying VR horror games out there, even securing some high-profile exclusives. But don’t let this be the only list you look at — Steam has close to 200 titles that fall under the VR horror umbrella.

    For this list we’re focusing specifically on games you can play either on Rift, Vive, or Windows VR. You can see our lists for Oculus Go and PSVR below:

    15 Best Oculus Go VR Horror Games and Experiences

    13 Best PSVR Horror Games and Experiences

    The following experiences are all listed in alphabetical order:

    A Chair in a Room: Greenwater

    Price: $24.99 (Store) (Our Review)
    Platforms: Rift, Vive

    Review Synopsis:

    The one-man studio of Wolf & Wood delivers one of Vive’s scariest games to date in A Chair in a Room: Greenwater. I spent about 3 hours tip-toeing my way through the story and still get goosebumps when I think about the things I saw on my adventure. You’ll experience your fair share of jump scares throughout the experience, that’s for sure, but it’s the stalking dread and terror permeating the world as a whole that will truly chill you to the bone. A Chair in a Room: Greenwater is a wonderful proof of concept for utilizing room scale VR technology to the fullest in a methodical horror setting.

    Alien: Isolation

    Price: $10 (Store) (Our Impressions)
    Platforms (Unofficially Supported): Rift, Vive

    Alien: Isolation is a great game, but this is an unofficial VR mod. Like many survival horror titles it seems to have gotten better as time goes on as the subtle intricacies of its design are slowly uncovered and appreciated. Some people even regard it as the best-ever game based on the popular Alien series of  films. I tend to agree with those people. I can honestly say that Alien: Isolation is still a top-tier VR survival horror title.

    Arizona Sunshine

    Price: $39.99 (Steam) (Our Review) (Dead Man DLC Review)
    Platforms: Rift, Vive, Windows VR

    Review Synopsis:

    Vertigo Games proved that even in the most saturated genre we’ve seen for VR games this year — shooters with zombies — there was still room for something fresh. Arizona Sunshine combines the narrative power of a fully-featured 4+ hour campaign mode, with the intensity of a wave-based horde mode, and then adds multiplayer to both experiences. The protagonist’s witty humor make it worth recommending on his charming personality alone, with enough depth and variety to keep people coming back for several hours. By doing so many things so well, Arizona Sunshine quickly rose to the top of the pack as the best overall zombie shooter we’ve seen yet in VR.

    The Brookhaven Experiment 

    Price: $19.99 (Store) (Our Review)
    Platforms: Rift, Vive, Windows VR

    Review Synopsis:

    The Brookhaven Experiment builds on the foundation of its popular demo and establishes itself as one of the premiere VR zombie shooter experiences on the
