Oculus Rift (March 28)

Finally. After years of speculation, high-end VR becomes a reality when Oculus Rift pre-orders start shipping this season. The anticipated headset, which retails for $599, comes with a controller, a remote, and two impressive games in EVE Valkyrie and Lucky’s Tale. You’ll also need a pretty potent PC, however.

Spring Games Guide 2016

A few great games aside, 2016 isn’t exactly off to a huge start. That’s about to change. Spring, typically a pretty busy season for gamers, goes virtually bananas this year thanks to the arrival of both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. 

But even if you’re not hopping on the virtual reality (VR) bandwagon, there’s plenty of big games to enjoy, including the long-delayed Uncharted 4, the reboot of seminal shooter Doom, and the much anticipated return of Mirror’s Edge. Note: All of the games on this list are scheduled to be released between March 20 and June 19 (except one, because we just couldn’t help ourselves).

Ben Silverman loves VR but hates what it does to his hair. Seriously. He complains about this on Twitter @ben_silverman.
