It's still early days for this exciting tech, but there are already some mind-blowing experiences

If you're lucky enough to have actually got your hands on an elusive PlayStation VR unit today, you'll no doubt be spending a good chunk of your weekend fending off family and friends demanding to try it out. 

That said, VR as a technology is in its embryonic stages, and nowhere is this more evident than in the PSVR's launch lineup. The rules for this young medium are being written in real-time by pioneering developers, and you get the feeling that no one knows much of anything quite yet. 

Yet there's no denying the sheer novelty of VR, and even if its rules and conventions are still a work in progress, something undeniably magical happens when you don a headset for the first time and recede from regular reality. A handful of games dropping alongside the PSVR make a great argument for doing so. While it may be a stretch to call some of the games on this list "great" – and "game" feels like an increasingly unwieldy term to describe some of them – they suggest a tantalizing future.
