These VR games can be played from the comfort of your couch.
One of the most exciting things you will ever do is play a game in VR. But if you only have a small space to play, it can be hard to set up your VR gear, which may make you think twice about buying it. It’s becoming more and more famous, and it’s being used for more than just games, so it needs to be easier to use.
But to play some of the best VR games on the market, you don’t need a whole room. The people who made the games on this list either made them so you can play them while sitting down or added changes that give you the same experience no matter where you play.

Dagon: By H.P. Lovecraft
This game is a short story that brings the Cthulhu lore to life in all its VR glory. Bit Golem, the company that made the game, stays true to Lovecraft’s short story of the same name.
The best part is that the game is free, but if you really want to help the developer, you can buy a paid DLC. There are audiobooks and e-books in the DLC, and your buy will help the developer make more games in the future. This interactive experience doesn’t require much moving, so it’s easy to play while sitting down.
Cooking Simulator VR

Since almost everything happens at “table” height, it’s the perfect game for sitting down with a bowl of borscht and getting to work. Just make sure not to drop anything.

Escape rooms are a lot of fun, and VR is the best way to make them digitally. VR escape rooms are amazing because they can be set in any time or place and can use any subject to make puzzles that would be impossible in the real world.

Even though the base game lets you play standard board games with other people online, the community is so active that people are always sharing their own games and tables.

Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a party game where one person is the bomb diffuser and the other players give them directions. The catch is that the people giving the instructions can’t see the bomb, so they have to be very good at communicating for the bomb diffuser to work.
Drift Boss is different because you only need a VR headset and tracked controls to defuse the bomb. Most VR-tracked controllers only need one or two buttons to connect with the bomb, which is very easy. You can play with people nearby and have a great time.

But you DON’T get out of your chair. During the whole game, you move around and interact with the world from a future lounge chair.

Tetris Effect is more than just a game you can play while sitting down; we recommend getting as comfortable as you can. VR takes what is already a great game and makes it even better. You’ll be surrounded by moving images that pull you into the incredibly artistic moment each level shows.
In Tetris Effect, it’s easy to get caught up in what’s going on in each moment. You won’t be able to tell how much time has passed by the time you’re done. Unless you’re standing and playing.
