Best VR Western-inspired Games – The Wild West awaits


by Team VRGC

Once upon a time in the West a fistful of dollars could easily secure a gun for hire. It was a big country where a few bucks got you a pass on a stagecoach and where expansion was driven by silver and gold rushes.

As always, we'd love to hear from you in case of titles you deem worthy our lists and if you got an idea for our next "best of" article.
