Top 10 VR Games on Steam, May 2020

Greetings VR Fam!

We've scoured the Steam public sales figures for May to bring you the top selling VR games this month. The #1 spot is no surprise, but I am surprised at how long #2 has held out. Let's take a look.

Space Pirate Trainer #10

  • Steam Rating: Overwhelmingly Positive (2,206 reviews)
  • Multiplayer: Single-Player Only
  • Supported Controls: Motion Controllers
  • Play Area: Seated / Standing / Room-Scale
  • Supported Devices: Index / Vive / Rift / WMR

“Remember those awesome classic arcade cabinets? Imagine if those were immersive... Space Pirate Trainer puts you in one of those; fighting off relentless waves of droids with all the weapons and gadgets you would ever need as a space pirate. You better dodge some of those incoming lasers though, since just using your shields won't get you in the top rankings. Pick up your blasters, put on your sneakers, and dance your way into the Space Pirate Trainer hall of fame.”

Gorn #9

  • Steam Rating: Overwhelmingly Positive (5,058 reviews)
  • Multiplayer: Single-Player Only

“GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.”

“Jet Island is massive open world and you have an arsenal of tools that will allow you to travel through this world at extreme speeds! When standing on your hoverboard, the ground below you becomes frictionless. Perfect for sliding up and down the mountainous terrain. To control the direction of your movement and gain even more speed, you have two wrist mounted jet thrusters. You also have grappling hooks to swing from tall structures and climb up the side of giant monsters. The combination of these tools provide a freedom of movement unlike any other. There are no limits to what you can do. It's the closest feeling to learning how to fly.”
