It's no secret that the Oculus Rift helped kick-start the recent virtual reality revival. In fact, while competitors have appeared since the headset's incredibly successful Kickstarter, many still consider the Oculus Rift to be the frontrunner in the upcoming VR arms race. And, with Microsoft announcing a major partnership with Oculus back at E3 2015, the Rift definitely has the manpower behind it to be successful.

More importantly, however, the Oculus has the games to support it. Ever since the first developer kits were released a few years back, more and more games have been released for the headset ahead of its official launch. As a result, the Oculus already as a surprisingly long list of VR-ready games, despite the fact that it's not even out yet.

This is a comprehensive list of every major title that's either in-progress or already available for the Oculus Rift headset. For simplicity's sake, we've narrowed it down to three categories: Available means that the software is ready to download now, Confirmed means that the team is working to get VR running in their game, and Planned means that the game should be getting VR support, but nothing has been nailed down just yet.

So, without further adieu, here's every major game currently planned for the Oculus Rift:
