Pro Table Tennis Players Try Virtual Reality | ELEVEN VR

Eleven VR is a simulation game where you can play tennis against real players or AI. The goal is simply to win the game. 

It feels like you’re playing a real tennis game in a room with constantly changing motions and sounds at specific distances. The artwork on the tennis ball disappears the farther it gets from you but appears the closer it is. You can see the arena around you. 

The only problem that makes it less immersive is you can’t see animated characters as your opponents. All you see is the tennis ball, paddle, and maybe a VR controller. For this reason, i put it at the bottom of the list.   


9. Blade & Sorcery

Blade and Sorcery is a sandbox game focused on melee weapons, magic, and ranged combat using realistic physics. Objects and characters follow the laws of physics. There’s no story or goal in particular that you have to accomplish in this game. 

The game is very immersive down to even the smallest details. Corpses move as you step over them. You can pick up weapons, climb buildings, see your feet as you climb, see enemies up close, grab enemies, and more. 

Large weapons move slowly and hit with a heavy clunk. A weapon hilt will stop a moving blade. An axe’s hook can pull away the edge.
