Ian’s top ten best PSVR games of 2018

Welcome one and all to a very special Christmas episode of Ian’s VR Corner where I’ll be going over my top ten best PSVR games of 2018 . The following list is completely my opinion and it only features games I’ve played, so if I’ve missed out on one of your favourites it may just be that I’ve not had a chance to give it a go. Well, it’s either that or I did play it and I just thought it was a bit poo. Either way, please do share the love for your favourite PSVR games in the comments below and hopefully you can inspire others to try them out too. Check out the video below to watch the video version of this list can see footage of each game featured. If reading is more your thing though, you’ll find my entire top ten list just under that.

It creeps up on you during the first few chapters, as whimsy gradually gives way to a weird sense of unease. This feeling gently builds in the back of your mind […]
