'Headmaster'

Headmaster, as the title suggests, is all about heading balls with your face. It's set in a football-themed prison dubbed the "Football Improvement Center," and it has a gloriously dark sense of humor that evokes the wit of Douglas Adams and the banter of Portal or The Stanley Parable. It's also possibly the most unexpectedly approachable VR game at launch because its core concept is so fundamentally easy to understand: It kicks balls at you, and you have to head them back at targets to score points. That might sound incredibly simple, but as you progress through its elaborate "re-education plan," you're soon faced with heading the ball through hoops, at moving targets, or through elaborate obstacles before things escalate and become utterly bonkers. By later levels you'll be blowing up barriers with explosive soccer balls and even heading lethal-looking "knifeballs" at elaborate moving targets. It's by no means PSVR's answer to Wii Sports, but it's a rare launch game that's hilarious when played with friends, and actively supports passing the headset around for multiplayer group sessions.
