The Last Player: VR Battle Royale

Who said battle royale games had to be limited to traditional consoles, mobile, or PC? In The Last Player: VR Battle Royale, you’re sent into a PUBG-like battlefield where only your wits and a little luck will help you survive. You begin by parachuting onto the map, and must collect items and weapons to defend yourself before you find other players. If you’re the best, you can become the sole victor.

Fitness Potential

The Last Player: VR Battle Royale uses your entire body. When aiming your weapon, you use the tracked motion controllers. If you need to pick an item off the ground, you must physically bend over. Anyone who has played a battle royale game knows this is something you’ll be doing regularly. In the air, you’ll also use your arms to adjust the path of your parachute when landing.

You’re a wizard, Harry. Or Larry. Or Jeff. Regardless of your name, Bloodstream puts you in the role of an energy-wielding master who can unleash attacks with their Chi. By moving smoothly, you can crush meteors, throw flaming tornadoes, or even draw flaming katana blades to cut your targets down to size. Finally, all of the time you spend mimicking Avatar: The Last Airbender will be put to good use.

Fitness Potential

Bloodstream’s gameplay is based almost entirely on making your movements correctly. You pretend to cast spells to send them barreling at obstacles and enemies. If you conjure up a sword, you naturally must swing it like a real sword to defeat closer monsters. When projectiles come at you, you must be quick with your own spells to stop them from hitting.

Neon Exile


Speaking of game genres uncommon in virtual reality, Neon Exile is a full MMO played entirely in VR. In the game, you built items and battle against robots, and can play it either by yourself or with your friends. As you destroy enemies you’ll collect resources, and you can make your way to a competitive area to battle other people.

Fitness Potential

You use the tracked motion controllers in Neon Exile for just about everything, and the game works in a room-scale setup. One of its coolest features is the ability to climb obstacles, while you’ll do by putting your arms forward or above you and pretending you’re on a jungle gym. You can also launch yourself forward by pretending to use ski poles.

We aren’t totally sure why this game is called SincereMen, but the first-person shooter is an action-packed thrill ride with several different weapons. The game includes four distinct sections, including a helicopter shootout, and there is a different type of gameplay in each one. You can choose to play stealthily, or go for all-out chaos.

Fitness Potential

SincereMen features multiple different types of combat, including first-person shooting as well as melee. You can clock zombies in the head with a weapon by swinging your fist, and you need to be quick with your firearms in order to take out the approaching enemies.

Dragon Guide

Looking for something a little less violent that won’t break the bank? Dragon Guide is a unique take on VR that tasks you with guiding your adorable Sea Dragon friend. The game doesn’t require a powerful PC to run, so more players can enjoy. You guide the dragon named Wingolausich to eat magic orbs, but you need to avoid having him bite his own tail!

Fitness Potential

You use your tracked motion controller to guide the Sea Dragon through increasingly tight areas, and the game will get more difficult as he continues to grow longer. The game’s speed will increase over time, as well, requiring quicker movements without sacrificing accuracy. A time trial mode is also available to truly test your skills.
