With VR as a gaming medium still in its infancy, we didn’t want to limit ourselves to looking back on the first year of the major hardware’s commercial availability. We’ve seen the best VR experiences 2016 has produced, but we’re also excited about where the medium is heading in 2017 and beyond. To that end, we asked you, the Indie DB readers, to vote for your most anticipated upcoming VR games. Here are the five winners.
