VR gaming is the term used to describe a new generation of computer games with virtual reality (VR) technology that gives players a truly immersive, first-person perspective of game action. Participants experience and influence the gaming environment through a variety of VR play devices and accessories, including VR headsets, sensor gloves, handheld controllers, and more.
VR games can be played on standalone systems, dedicated game consoles, or with the help of high-end laptops and computers that can power leading VR headphones like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The high-quality PSVR lenses can also be used to play VR games.
There is a subset of virtual reality games that use related technologies called Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), in which virtual elements are placed in the player's real-world view through headphones or a camera.
