There's no reason for VA to not work with any game, unless that game specifically blocks input that is not from hardware.
 WoW works for sure.  That's my game of choice (still, lol) and VA was born out of WoW needs ;)  I actually can't play WoW without VA, as there is a deficiency in my Tartarus software that VA corrects.

My son used VA with Minecraft when he was into that (he's outgrown that since lol).

Final Fantasy 15 & the multiplayer Comrades work great with it.

The games with commercial voice packs of famous actors pretending to be AIs are just Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen, and some support for No Man's Sky.

Not easy, but possible is pretty much any game, Bearzly completed Dark Souls with voice only but it's not recommended!

Controlling mouse-only games with voice is awkward for me. Anything that supports keyboard input should be really quick to get working.

Gary, do remember some details of the Minecraft setup, like did you need 50 commands or nearer 10, did they just press a key or automate tasks?

Have you looked into the Steam input API (they broadened it beyond their own controller with the aim of saving programmers from having to wrestle with DirextXInput) and whether you can fake controller input to that?

It all depends on what you want to achieve. VA "effectiveness" is pretty universal, but the fine details really just come down to nuances about the game. For instance if you are trying to create shortcuts for selecting options or equipment on a menu screen you'll have to see if the game always snaps to the same starting menu window or if it "remembers" the last menu you had open. Each scenario will require a different VA approach (i.e. pressing the same sequence of keys for the former or having VA "remember" the previous menu and reacting accordingly for the latter).
