The HTC Vive headset is by far the best device for 360-degree, room-scale virtual reality. When it comes to quality VR racing, it’s probably on par with the Oculus Rift. The Vive was built from the ground-up for free-roaming, face-any-direction-you-like style of play. Its best games reflect that, but for racing games might want to go for the slightly less expensive Oculus Rift.
