PlayStation VR gamers are absolutely loving Job Simulator and Beat Saber, and it shows.
Both games ranked big on the charts in terms of the most downloaded PlayStation VR games of 2018. Job Simulator and Beat Saber took the two top spots, while Superhot VR and PlayStation VR Worlds followed closely behind.
The official PlayStation Blog went live with the PlayStation Store's download charts for 2018, which included highlights from both regular PlayStation 4 games as well as PSVR. Other games on the list were Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Arizona Sunshine, Moss, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Driveclub VR, and Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality. No sign of the excellent Rez Infinite, which is disappointing, but still absolutely a PSVR experience you should check out.
Owlchemy Labs' Job Simulator is a hilarious and tongue-in-cheek way to see what it's like for humans to have jobs – it's all part of a museum for robots, you see, because robots are curious about human lives and have no idea what it's like to be an office worker or store clerk. So you step into their simulations and do hilarious things like evaluate employees, eat donuts, scan items, and a variety of other things humans do that turn out to be pretty difficult (and thus funny) in virtual reality. If you've never tried it, you're in for a truly immersive treat.
Beat Saber, on the other hand, is a music and rhythm game that has players slashing away at note blocks while awesome songs play in the background. It started out as a PC title, but made its way to PSVR this year and invited tons of new players in to see what it's all about. It's addictive and a great way to get your exercise in for the day while playing around, too.
