MultiPlayer Games

These are games where multiple people can play at one time. Multiplayer games can be classified in different ways:

  1. Co-op games where you work together toward a common goal (e.g. fighting zombies)
  2. Head-to-head where you compete against each other (e.g. boxing each other, or playing mini-golf against each other)
  3. Simultaneous play where you each play independently but at the same time
  4. Alternate universes where you can explore or just hang out together (e.g. AltSpace VR, Rec Room, Horizon, VR Chat, Alcove) – we don’t go into those on this page, but see the menu on the left for more details about these)
