Favorite VR Games

I got an Oculus several months ago (back in March I think) but I still don't have much software for it. I have no idea what to get and I was wondering if other people had some favorite VR games they would recommend? NOT PRON (like that other thread with the similar name)... Actual Games, like on Steam or Oculus. My biggest issue with VR right now is motion sickness.

So far my favorites:

Arizona Sunshine: This is a pretty good Zombie shooter. I don't get very sick because it's a stand in place game. To move, you basically have a circle on the ground which you navigate with the stick, and when you press the button, you jump there. This sounds a little cheezy, but it works really well and did I mention it doesn't make me sick? You can aim down gun sites, open drawers, open doors, etc. Pretty cool stuff.

Star Trek Bridge Crew: Also a good game. No sickness as I am sitting the entire time and things are not moving around you. When I go to the outside the ship view, though, all bets are off. And it's fun too. You can be the navigator, tactical (pew-pew), engineer, or Captain.

I think multi-player is the main focus, but there are also single player missions with an AI which is really neat. It has voice commands that you can give to your crew, rather than having to hit buttons the whole time. It's like really being inside of Star Trek. The AI isn't too bright I'm afraid. Every now and then I have to shift to the navigation chair to steer around something.

Others I have tried:

Adrift - Confusing, very tough to get the hang of. Also motion sickness.
Albino Lullaby - More motion sickness, ugh.
SuperHot VR - Seems more like a tech demo than a game to me
Elite Dangerous - I don't know why, but I got motion sickness when I first tried this. I need to try again now that I am more used to the device.

VR technology is awesome! I'll definitely check those games out next weekend. I already tried Elite Dangerous and you are right - flying on those spaceships made me sick at first. But the game is awesome. I also like Fulldive VR app. It's a kind of social platform with different VR content. So if you guys like VR I suggest you to try it, there is a lot of interesting stuff there.
