The Best VR Headsets Of 2020

What the best VR glasses are, of course, largely depends on your gaming set-up. Do you have a powerful VR PC? Then it is smart to opt for a VR PC headset. But if you don't have a computer at all, you might be better off opting for standalone VR glasses, such as the Oculus Quest. Space also determines the choice of the best VR glasses.
