How do I know which Oculus games or apps are right for me?

When you browse a game or app in the Oculus Store, you can view its comfort rating to see if the experience is right for you. We work closely with developers to make sure the comfort rating accurately matches the experience. If you're new to VR, we recommend starting with games or apps that are rated Comfortable before trying Moderate, Intense or Unrated experiences.

Comfort Ratings

The following comfort ratings can be found in the Oculus Store:

Comfortable experiences should be right for most people. These experiences usually include:

  • Little or no camera movement
  • Little or no player motion
  • Little or no disorienting effects

Moderate experiences should be right for many, but not everyone. These experiences usually include:

  • Some camera movement
  • Some player motion
  • Some disorienting effects

Intense experiences may not be right for most people, especially those who are new to VR. These experiences usually include:

  • Significant camera movement
  • Significant player motion
  • Significant disorienting effects

Unrated experiences may contain intense content, which may not be right for most people, especially those who are new to VR. If you experience motion sickness or other VR effects from an unrated experience, you should select another unrated experience, or try an experience in the Oculus Store that's rated for your comfort level.
