Here we are then, the Game of the Year awards ceremony for PlayStation Vita, a platform that reputedly has no decent games on it. This might get a bit awkward.
Oh, wait... the Vita's got plenty of great games.
Just where has this negative perception of the device come from, anyway?
It's only been out since mid-February in the West, and already there are some absolutely corking games for Sony's latest system. So many, in fact, that we've had to do a mini round-up at the foot of the piece, giving honourable mentions to games we just didn't have space to include.
First things first ,though, it's time to pick out the very best of the best on Vita in 2012, starting with one of my absolute favourite titles of the year, regardless of platform.
