Two of the hot topics amongst museum technophiles are AR and VR. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. The terms sometimes get muddled, but they are in fact two distinct forms of technology.

And at Oculus's recent San Francisco pre-launch press event, we spent a day and a half playing as many as humanly possible.

We'll have a full review of the Rift soon enough, but for now, what kind of games can you expect? We decided to make it easy and give you quick-hit snippets of everything, noting if the game requires the sold-separately Oculus Touch controllers. We're already seeing some familiar themes...
