Virtual reality is the newest frontier of video game technology. As such, it was not surprising that many developers, both big and small, were showing off their upcoming VR titles at PAX West 2016. While you can gain a certain amount of understanding from most games by looking at a trailer or a bit of gameplay, VR is best when it is experienced.

We got our hands, and our eyes, on a diverse lineup of titles that show a variety of the benefits of the technology. Here are some games to keep an eye on if you have, or plan to get, any of the different VR options available.

Blind

The major selling point of virtual reality is that it immerses you into the game world via a headset that allows you to see to see a virtual world. So who's bright idea was it to make a game where the character you play is blind? That would be Surprise Attack Games. To be clear, you don't really spend the entire game unable to see. Blind is an adventure game where you play a character who is blind, but by banging your stick against things, you create echoes that outline the world around you for a brief moment. Anything that makes noise also gives away its shape to you. The early demo takes place in a mysterious house, and you play a character who finds themselves there with no explanation. The developer promises the game is more psychological that horror. Its unique visuals and intriguing story make this one worth looking at.
