Towards the end of 2017 I, like pretty much every one else, posted my favorite stuff from the year. In this case, it was my favorite VR stuff that year. It was a list I put together pretty late and quick. I've been very busy working one job and then in October deciding to open Digital Worlds took up most of my spare time. I sought to make a list that included some categories that not everyone would think of. Maybe this year I'll have more time to get even more creative. Like with any of these "Top" lists, there's some controversy, so I figured I would put together this post explaining my logic. I made the list to help people find those quality VR experiences, so this list gives the logic there.
2017 was a great year for VR. We saw traditional AAA developers/publishers get more invested in VR and we saw a lot of quality VR games made by new developers. There was a lot of cool new hardware this year, like the Deluxe Audio Strap and the TPCast. Sadly for me, towards the end of the year I really didn't have a lot of time to spend in VR as I was so busy planning and building Digital Worlds LLC, so there will be a lot of things missing on here that maybe should have made some lists, so I'll include a section at the bottom for those games that I never got to try. Also, for keep an eye out for my "Reasons For My 2017 Picks" blog post that will explain all of these. Anyhow, on to the awards.
