2016 was a great year for virtual reality.
Behind our headsets, with the volume on high and our depth perception in question, we traveled to foreign landscapes, both real and fictional; re-lived historic battles; danced to a Beastie Boys-inspired concert in Hell; and witnessed Mother Nature in full, terrifying force. It was a wild ride, to say the very least.
In honor of the past 12 months — and in eager anticipation of the 12 to come — we’ve compiled our 10 favorite pieces of virtual reality content from 2016.
They’re not in any particular order; these are just the videos we feel best represent the diversity, and potential, of the VR medium. (That being said, we love discovering new VR content — if there’s something we missed, please let us know!)
