With so many people working remotely, many companies miss the social component that was part of the work environment. In this article, we will review some Virtual Reality games. These games will allow your employees to connect virtually for some fun and competition.

VR Karts - Up to 8 Players
Review by Press Play News. Featuring no less than 22 tracks and 30 cars, this is a racer with plenty of gameplay content. Some of the cars are recognizable as iconic real-life cars (including F1 cars and a DeLorean), and all of the vehicles can be customized with various (cosmetic) upgrades that you acquire while racing. This ties in nicely to the game’s objective-based campaign mode, in which you gradually unlock new content – and what’s great is that you’re not just tied to single-player gameplay while doing so since everyone knows kart racers are best enjoyed with other people.
You can access all the tracks and cars without unlocking them in the quick race mode though, which is going to be a popular choice for anyone just jumping in for a race or two.
Touring Karts VR features online multiplayer for up to eight players at once, and we had quite a few players join us when we were testing. It would’ve been great to also compete locally with non-VR players in split-screen, but we assume that’s difficult to pull off from a technical/performance perspective.
Touring Karts a very complete VR experience.
Racket Fury VR - Up to 16 Players
In this global multiplayer game, players can face 16 opponents in four table tennis cups or opt for the single-player mode to take on the competition.
You can experience a character that animators modeled after motion data, so you'll have real-life, more accurate movements — ideal for the competitive player.
The goal of the game develoer was to provide the most realistic Racket game possible. Using professional players, they were able to capture and study the movements used for various shots. They optimized the hand controllers to simulate these moves in what is probably the most realistic VR racket game.
Catan VR - Up to 4 Players
Catan VR is an immersive take on Klaus Teuber’s landmark title that revolutionized modern board gaming.
True to the classic, but optimized for virtual reality, Catan VR allows tabletop fans and new players alike to experience the best-selling board game in a fresh, fully-immersive format. Whether taking on other players around the world, or playing against Catan personalities, players can watch the island come to life in VR for the first time, with beautiful in-game environments and cross-play functionality.
Cloudlands VR - Mini Golf - Up to 4 Players
Cloudlands: VR Minigolf is a virtual reality minigolf experience like you've never experienced before.
Cloudlands uses an intuitive control mapping between the virtual putter and your Oculus Go controller to make swinging feel natural, just like swinging a real putter. Expect real-life golf skills to translate into the virtual world (oh no!). Don't worry though. It's minigolf! Everyone can have fun and play.
Cloudlands includes a fantastical 18 hole course with access to over 1000 user created holes by some of the world's leading VR minigolf designers. Expect to be challenged by ball cannons, floating bridges, spinning obstacles, and multi-island holes.
If you're tired of playing alone, challenge up to 3 other friends in 4 player local multiplayer.
