VRChat is, for lack of a better term, infamous.
It’s been around for nearly two and a half years, and has seen traffic ebb and flow with VR’s popularity since then. But let’s assume that the vast majority of Internet frolickers stopped caring about VRChat just short of that insufferable Ugandan Knuckles meme of early 2018. Alas, memes and anime girl tropes a social VR app does not make. Furthermore, VRChat is actually home to a lot of cool, imaginative content. It has everything from live events to games and luxurious hangout spaces; all available on its free-to-explore online platform.
It’s also a bit dense at the front end. If you’re trying to find some cool worlds, you might quickly find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of options available to you, smack dab on the front page of the main ‘Worlds’ menu. That’s why we’ve put together a list of top VRChat worlds that all virtual visitors should check out on their tour of the app’s offerings.
Note that the criteria used here is subjective, and there are so many worlds and so many creators that we probably missed tons of hidden gems. All of the worlds on this list are exploration-focused or chillout areas, so we haven’t dug into any games here. If gaming inside of VRChat is more your speed, we do recommend trying out the Cards Against Humanity world and various climbing challenge rooms, albeit them not officially making it onto our list. Also, if you’re looking for events rather than worlds, check out the VRChat events calendar.
Ready? Let’s get started with our favorite VRChat worlds.
Japan Shrine (PC/Quest) | By: ITOAR
Representing what is supposed to be a spring day, this Japan Shrine map comes complete with various nooks and crannies to sit down and relax in. If lazing back on a park bench or on a pile of cherry blossom petals doesn’t suit your fancy, you can enter any of the pagoda-topped structures and discover recreations of Japanese dining sets and kitsch decor.
Home of the Time (PC/Quest) | By: fr1ed
How do I summarize Home of the Time? It’s basically a floating island, surrounded by water, and equipped with an automated day/night cycle. The interior space is spacious and homely for a VRChat world. At the top, you can find an area with beds to hang out in. Outdoors, there is an entire garden area with statues, a patio, and greenery.
The Black Cat (PC/Quest) | By: spookyghostb
Despite being a figment of the metaverse, The Black Cat feels like a public event hall. The kind you might rent out for somebody’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or a wedding reception. It’s basically a social club in VR, and it’s the kind of place you might go to meet other people before staging an expedition into some other worlds.
Rest and Sleep (PC/Quest) | By: LOLI
You might not actually fall asleep while exploring Rest and Sleep, but it certainly provides the kind of atmosphere that’s useful for decompressing and relaxing with others. What stands out here is the relaxing neon blue hue of all of the decorations and furniture pieces in the room.
Sombie’s Hangout (PC/Quest) | By: Sombie
You could sum Sombie’s Hangout down to a three-story mingling space set to the backdrop of indie artwork and art deco design. It contains hidden passageways, a bar, and all the VR chess and virtual beer pong you can possibly play in one sitting. If you don’t feel like playing social games, sit down in any of the bean bag chairs and kill time chatting it out with other avatars.
The Great Pug (PC Only) | By: owlboy
As you enter The Great Pug, you can almost smell the old wood, newspapers, coffee, and fried eggs. Everything about the main floor is reminiscent of a venerable neighborhood pub; the earthen green and brown tones plus the framed ‘photos’ of notable guests add a comforting aura that should make you feel like you’re walking through a real restaurant. Bonus points if you head on up to The Roost and cozy yourself by the fire.
If you’re on Quest there is a smaller, alternate version called The Great Pug – West designed to be optimized for the standalone VR headset.
Void Club (PC Only) | By: Lycon
Of all the VR nightclubs I’ve been to, the Void Club is easily the most active. Music pumps through the venue all 24 hours a day, and there are almost always other avatars running around and dancing. You can explore various VIP spaces above the dancefloor, but don’t forget to check out the club exterior for some vibrant sci-fi vistas.
Room of Summer Solitude (PC/Quest) | By: Lucifer MStar
The Room of Summer Solitude is more than just any old bedroom. It’s one of the best-optimized bedrooms in all of VRChat, looking nearly as beautiful in the Oculus Quest as it does on PC. That said, this room is gorgeous. The panorama over Hong Kong is as photorealistic as you’re going to get in VRChat, and taking photos inside of this thing made me feel like a bougie travel photographer.
A Rainy Night In (PC/Quest) | By: Lucifer MStar
A Rainy Night In is the more detailed counterpart to Room of Summer Solitude. It’s a messier experience, and I did feel performance take a hit at various points on my Rift (but not on my Quest, strangely enough). However, there’s just so much more to explore here. Seeing as how well-trafficked A Rainy Night In is, social games are a must. On my first go, I almost missed the mysterious spinning bottle lying on the kitchen counter.
Big Al’s Avatar Corridors (PC/Quest) | By: Big Al
A maze filled with over 200 custom avatars from recognizable IPs like Rocko’s Modern Life and The Simpsons? Yes please. Wandering through the seemingly endless labyrinth of Big Al’s Avatar Corridors feels a bit like walking into a Party City before Halloween. If you don’t get totally lost, you might walk out with something you aren’t too embarrassed to show your friends. Of course, showing off your avatar in VRChat is never embarrassing because the entire thing is a non-stop costume party. Go hard.
VRChat is one of the most widely frequented (and free) social apps for PC VR and Oculus Quest headsets. If you haven’t downloaded it, you can find it on Steam or on the Oculus Store. And if you don’t own a headset yet, you can still hop into VRChat and join your friends in any of these worlds from the comfort of your desktop.
Let us know some of your favorite worlds down in the comments below!

Internet Explained: The wacky world of VRChat
by Tanner Kinney
Picture this: you are in a bar with your best friends: Shaggy, Solid Snake, Garfield, and Hank Hill. You are simply talking about life, Hank and Shaggy share a toast to their struggles and Garfield complains about Mondays on a Saturday evening. Suddenly, the bar is invaded by a gang of angry penguins, all demanding typical penguin things from the bar patrons. Garfield attempts to bail, but is taken down immediately. All seems lost. However, the lost Knuckles tribe has arrived to the bar as well, and spit on the penguins harassing their queen, the beautiful Nep-Nep that sounds like a 30 year-old neck-bearded man behind his voice changer. You thank the Knuckleses (Knuckles’s? Knuckli?) for their contribution, and ask if there’s anything you can do for them. Simply, they inquire one thing:
“Do you know de wey?”
This scenario is one that may seem like someone did all of the hallucinogenic drugs at once while watching Boomerang and old commercials for PlayStation games, then documented their thoughts live, but is something entirely possible thanks to the power of technology. The true purpose of virtual reality is to bring back the hit spiritual successor to Second Life, VRChat. VRChat is essentially the O.A.S.I.S. from Ready Player One, except with less shameless pop culture references and features people with personalities. The player takes on an avatar, generally some dumb meme or an anime girl, and just interacts with other people playing characters. That’s about it. The locations vary greatly, and some servers and maps are ripped one-to-one from their source, but really it is just a social simulator.
This social simulator, however, has become an internet phenomenon. Twitch streams are widely popular, with people like Pokelawls, Jameskii, and many more getting huge off of this VR craze. There may not be real money to be made in VRChat, but there’s an economy much stronger than any traditional economy: a memeconomy. The memes flow faster and stronger with every stream, and famous characters like Hank Hill are given a whole new personality that is scarily close to his original appearances. There’s too much going on in VRChat at any time that discussing its history would be akin to writing a brief history of every major event on the Earth, so I’m just going to cover a few more famous characters and happening within this wacky world.
A very common set of characters that appear as avatars within VRChat are anime girls, voiced by adult males because, as we all know, GIRL stands for Guy In Real Life. Some of these anime girls are your typical fair: tall, angsty looking, scantily clad, and with proportions as realistic as getting a 5-star pizza from Little Caesars. But that’s not the only type of anime girl, those blend into the crowd. The ones that stand out and start fights are the lolis. For those who still have some self-respect left and don’t know what a loli is, essentially it is a girl who looks like she’s 12 years old. The story may say she’s a 3000 year old vampire or an immortal aspect of the elements or some other cop-out but she looks like she’s 12.
In VRChat, they appear in great numbers, generally sticking with generic lolis but some are more iconic. One of those is Kanna, the adorable please-do-not-lewd dragon girl from the anime Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. She’s easily one of my favorite anime characters because she’s so gosh darn cute. In VRChat, Kanna is essentially like the bait Chris Hansen would have on To Catch A Predator. They solicit and tempt poor unsuspecting weaboos – or ‘weebs’ – and have run rampant for far too long. The Kanna’s are in such great numbers that they even have their own anthem, a parody of “Gucci Gang” called “Kanna Gang.” Some people have even taken to kidnapping the lolis for whatever reason to remove them from society. Truly, the lolis are a danger to society.
Also, to anyone who truly thinks it’s okay to lewd the 12 year old looking girls, and to those stalking the pure lolis on VRChat, there’s only one thing I have to say to you:
As someone who dabbled in internet forum usage back before I discovered actual video games, I used to participate in “role-playing” on internet forums. Generally, they were Pokemon themed, text-based role playing games with some actual mechanics, sort of. I never really understood it, I was too young. It wouldn’t be until I picked up playing Dungeons & Dragons that I would understand the power of the role-player. And I hate it dearly outside of its environment. When I play Final Fantasy XIV, I shun all people doing their disgusting role-playing as their trashy cat-girl Miqo’te in my pure, Final Fantasy experience. My avatar Ferah Fuzzybuns specifically hates Miqo’te with a burning passion, yes even the cute ones because they hold higher social status as a majority group while Lalafells aren’t given the proper respect they deserve! Lalafells just get unsolicited petting and aren’t taken seriously because they are small and potato-like, it’s not fair I tell you!
Wait, where was I? Right, role-playing. Disgusting. The thing about VRChat is that, when you take an avatar, you have two reasons for it. One: You liked how it looked or it is a favorite character of yours. Two: You want to embody that character with your entire being. Voice, personality, movements, memes, you name it. There are people who get really, really into their characters in an attempt to grandstand on Twitch streams and, those who execute properly, can bring something new to the experience.
The most famous of these is probably the guy who role-plays as Hank Hill. You know the one, Hank the Hill, the guy who nails the voice perfectly and rarely drops accent. There’s only one clip I’ve seen where he dropped character, and that takes serious talent. He sings, plays guitar, basically he’s the Hank Hill of every anime girl’s… dreams? Maybe? Other than him, I’ve seen some very talented Vegetas, Garfields, Shaggys, one or two Solid Snakes, and probably some others I’m forgetting. I’m dead serious when I say people get into their characters. It’s truly shocking how hardcore these people are. If you get a chance and stumble upon a VRChat stream in the dark of the night, you’ll find these people living it up in their dream world. Filthy role-players.
It wouldn’t be an article about the mess that is VRChat without discussing the meme that transcended the game into normie territory: Ugandan Knuckles. The 3D model is based on a drawing of Knuckles in a video done by Gregzilla about Sonic Lost World. This drawing is funny of its own, just a dopey looking Knuckles. A 3D model of the art was made, then transferred into Unity to be in VRChat. At this point, it’s relatively harmless. Then, thanks to Forsen and the Ugandan memes that spawned from his chat, potato Knuckles evolved into the proud Ugandan Warrior Knuckles. This little avatar would gather in large groups, trying to find the way, spitting on non-believers and respecting their “queen,” aka the closest anime girl.
I assume through the power of the internet it spread like wildfire, starting with a couple of videos, then a couple tens of videos, then hundreds upon hundreds popping up on YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr I assume. There were people out in real life that were spouting the Knuckles memes, and that’s when you know things are scary popular is when the normies grab a hold of it. There was so much supersaturation of Ugandan Knuckles overflowing into various, non-VRChat Twitch streams that they were considered cringe-worthy memes within like a week of their inception. Here we had a dead horse that wasn’t just getting beaten, it was getting destroyed with various guns, blades, gunblades, hammers, shields, can-openers, basically anything that could be used as a weapon bludgeoned the poor horse. I know, for my money, I got tired of it very quickly. It was still very funny at first though.
This isn’t to excuse Ugandan Knuckles for being a tad, well, tasteless. Borderline racist, sometimes stepping into overtly racist, but definitely questionable. Once the funny voice and meme starts to dull on you, and you really think about it, Knuckles using a comedy accent, talking about Ebola, acting tribal, and other bizarre activities starts to be less funny. Imagine pulling this out into real life, where people are actually doing this. That would not fly in anyway, shape, or form. Yet, in VRChat, it becomes possibly the definitive meme of the game. And that, my brothers, is not the way.
I’m definitely missing a lot of VRChat’s insane community. A game that came out of nowhere becoming this hub of insanity and possibly the greatest killer app VR could ask for is cool to see. The world itself is a little hard to follow for someone who isn’t entrenched in it, but I’ll click on VRChat videos in my feed and enjoy myself for what it’s worth. I’m sure I’d enjoy playing it too, if I had a VR headset. Then I could finally, truly role-play as my avatar Ferah Fuzzybuns and bring upon the inception of the Lalafellowship! A new age is upon us! Praise the Lalafell!

Loli vr chat
ValveSoftware / Proton Public
I've put over 100 hours into the game at this point, and can say that it works pretty well. Since my last system specs post, I think I've bumped to Mesa 18.3.x, but that is about the only notable change.
So far the game has been working fine with Proton 3.16-7 Beta.
The only things I've found that consistently crashes me 100% of the time is the ingame embedded web player and some shader-heavy worlds. Any world that has an auto-activated web player will crash me within a minute, hitting the button to turn it on in any world where it must be activated will crash right away. Worlds with lots of really fancy shaders also seem to crash the game, but it could also just be something like shader (re)compilation taking so long that I think the game died.
The game hangs on exit 100% of the time. Sometimes when killing the game (clicking the X until KDE prompts to kill ), it will completely or partially crash SteamVR. I've noticed this happens more when the game has locked up/crashed; however it handles it perfectly fine sometimes. Restarting SteamVR fixes the issue.
I've also noticed that opening and closing the SteamVR Dashboard overlay too many times too quickly can crash the game as well. I started noticing that with 1.2.10, but that could just be because I've spent many many more hours using 1.2.10 than using any other version.
Other than that, the only crashes I experience are usually things that crash other users as well (IE avatars with just insane shaders, lots of resource-intensive avatars in a small area). If anything I've found that I crash less than some other users who run on Windows, as the game seems to handle extremely resource-intensive avatar shaders "well" (The game drops to 1-2 FPS but keeps rendering which allows me to use the menu to leave the world). It isn't pleasant, but the game does survive.
I've also noticed an issue (although I don't know that I've seen it since Proton 3.16-7 Beta activated) where shaders or something seem to keep running. When avatars have really demanding shaders, if I leave the world to other (empty, decently optimized) worlds, I'll often keep having terrible performance. If I go to a world where I usually get 45 FPS, it will be consistently dropping below 30 despite me being the only person there. Restarting the game (and SteamVR, if SteamVR crashes) will fix this. I'll see if I can reproduce this with Proton 3.16-7 Beta; it may have been fixed.
Overall, I'd say that with decently powerful hardware (see my system specs), the game is absolutely playable and a pretty good experience. It isn't perfect (see above for the issues), but most of the issues are usually avoidable and manageable. I absolutely plan to keep playing the game for the foreseeable future, so long as it stays in the current state (or gets better).

Tomara entered the kitchen and asked with a grin. Well, when will the grandchildren wait. - patting the guy on the head. I went to the bath in silence. If you knew the whole truth, you would speak differently, I thought.
