Best Children’s Games on Quest

Although Oculus themselves say that you should be at least 13 years old to use the Quest, there’s some debate as to whether or not you should let your children play in virtual reality.

We all know that there could be issues, and the tech hasn’t been around long enough for us to see what the long term impact of using VR as children could be. Besides the newness there’s also the ethical problems involved in conducting any testing on children, so, unfortunately, we’re just going to have to find out as we go along.

The takeaway is that we should certainly err on the side of caution when it comes to how young they can be, and how long we allow them to use it, and how frequently, and definitely what sort of experiences we want them to get used to doing in first person virtually immersive environments.

With all that in mind, if you are going to let your children play games on your Quest, this is our list of the best child-friendly games we’ve reviewed!

fujii
Fuji is a fulfilling game that plays to the Quest’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s accessible, it’s relaxing, it’s fun, and it leaves you with a smile on your face. Every design decision makes sense. Everyone should play this game.

Rewarding from start to finish, Journey of the Gods might be one of the Quest's greatest hidden treasures. It's well-made, endearing, and eminently playable.

With an attractive art style, great writing, and genuinely lovable main character, Ghost Giant presents an absorbing, whimsical and ultimately rounded experience which is an absolute must-buy for fans of narrative VR experiences. It's just a pity and a missed opportunity that it doesn't utilise hand-tracking.

If Myst, The Witness,and Donnie Darko were blended together...well, that'd be gross but it would taste a lot like Shadow Point.

Cook-Out, being pretty much Overcooked! in VR and available on the Oculus Quest is a fun cooking game in singleplayer that turns into fantastic fun as a multiplayer game. Miss it at your peril.

Best Children's Games on Quest 71
I had few expectations when heading into the gaudy open doors of Fail Factory, but ended up being more than pleasantly surprised. An incredibly fun and funny game which is ridiculously affordable, and which displays a level of polish sometimes lacking from even some of the more ambitious big-budget titles on the Quest. Highly recommended.

In many ways, Moss is one of the best games you can buy for VR to date - we love you Quill, but there are just a few things holding you back from perfection.

A mostly polished and satisfying puzzle faffer, which sets out to please rather than wow and succeeds. Play it with the music off.

If you don't mind that it's a short playthrough, and if you value artistry and original puzzle design, give A Fisherman's Tale a try.

job simulator
Despite its shortcomings, Job Simulator is a perfect game for the Oculus Quest’s launch, as it is a great pick-up-and-play experience for players new to virtual reality.

Casual Fun
raccoon lagoon
Do you like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing? Raccoon Lagoon might just be perfect for you. It has some issues, but nothing that a future update can't fix!

Acron: Attack of the Squirrels is a lot of fun and a perfect game to play with your family or when you have some friends over.

Family Fun

For the purposes of this list, we’ve focused on games that have been built to appeal to children. In doing so, we have ignored more general titles like Beat Saber, Synth Riders, and Racket Fury: Table Tennis that are not made with children in mind but can still be enjoyed by them.
