It could be a big holiday season for virtual reality companies.
The buzz over the new slate of VR headsets has been growing all year. And with the holidays here, the devices will finally start to make their way into homes on a broader scale. The Consumer Technology Association predicts 700,000 units will be sold before the end of the year.
But hardware is no good without software, and when it comes to VR, games are the star of the show right now. Whether you're planning on buying a VR headset for someone or even for yourself, here are a few suggestions on titles to download once you've got it set up. Each will transport you to a different world — and make you quickly lose track of time in the real one.
