If you are using Oculus Quest for the first time, you need to set up your connection first. Here’s the method to do it.
To set it up, you’d need to install the Oculus software using a file names OculusSetup.exe.Run. You will be prompted to log in to your account or create a new one during the installation process. (Linking a Facebook account is compulsory for Quest 2 users.)

How to play VR games and SteamVR Games
Any viable game with the old Oculus Rift is likewise viable with Quest utilizing Oculus Link.
