Ten brilliant Vita games no one told you about

Digitally Downloaded writes: "This week we're going to have a look at that console that everyone claims lacks games. That's right, the PlayStation Vita. The sad reality for those naysayers is that it doesn't lack games at all. In fact, the Vita has some truly entertaining games that were release to little or no fanfare thanks to the console's utter lack of visibility in the market.

So, if you haven't got a Vita yet, consider the ten games we've listed below. You might not even realise these are available on the console, but if you pick one up and grab these games to go with it, you'll quickly realise just how good the Vita can really be." (Atelier Totori Plus: the Adventurer of Arland, escapeVektor, Men's Room Mayhem, New Little King's Story, PS Vita, Pure Chess, Ragnarok Odyssey, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories, The Flying Hamster HD, Thomas Was Alone)

Oh hell no I know ragnarok odyssey is not in this list lol
To each their own but I seriously hated that game
Nerdmaster  +   452d ago
Yeah, I was really disappointed with Ragnarok Odyssey.

I really liked Totori. It's so cute and funny. And has great replayability.

Get this:

It's a new indie game that is available on PS Mobile. Sorry, this is all I could find of the game on Youtube.

Furthermore, I'd advise you check out "LONE SURVIVOR" when it's out which is yet another survival horror Indie game.
I can't wait to see what's in store for the Vita at E3 2013!

I don't agree with this list! This author has bad taste. The only good game on this list is Silent Hill Book Of Memories! Now that is an awesome game.a game worth buying indeed.

Virtue's Last Reward, i have this game on 3DS, it's also on Vita, get it!

Perhaps if it was 10 mildly underrated titles.... I'd have agreed with the writer's choices.

I'm actually playing uncharted on the VITA atm.

Looks amazing, smooth.

It's a true uncharted title on a handheld.

If you people have a VITA and haven't bought or tried it, they are crazy.
Heisenburger  +   452d ago
I've had my Vita for just under two weeks and I have to say Uncharted looks insane for a handheld.

It's in between Uncharted 1 and 2 graphically, with some of the water effects being awe-inspiring.

Playing Golden Abyss has made me very excited for the potential growth of future installments.

If Golden Abyss was just the beginning.... we are in for one hell of a ride.

what a terrible list

Oh come on let's not give people anymore bad ideas about the Vita. This is by far the least brilliant list one could come up with..

Chess? Really? I like playing Chess but in a top 10 list. I mean I guess to each their own, if that is what this person likes so be it. That is his list.

I just know many people will disagree. I just personally wished he showed off the Vita games that are worth talking about, no offense to your taste. Like I said to each their own, not everyone likes the same things or thinks the same.

" Oh come on let's not give people anymore bad ideas about the Vita. This is by far the least brilliant list one could come up with..

Chess? Really?"

Then you follow that up with "no offense".

Sorry mate, that was just plain rude and unnecessary. You have no right to insult the author's opinion.

Is there some real reason that a good Chess game can't be considered for a top 10 list (especially a top 10 list of niche games that don't get much coverage)?
Canary  +   451d ago
1) It's virtually impossible to make a -bad- Chess game.

2) The last "good" Chess game was made by Interplay. Yeah, /that/ one.

3( Chess is the very antithesis of a "niche" game.

I have been told of many of these games?

who ever hit disagree SHAME ON YOU! SHAAAAMMEEE!! ;)

Persona 4 Golden isn't on here? Some list.
MattS  +   452d ago
Everyone with a Vita has Persona 4 Golden - it's right at the top of the sales charts on the PSN months after it was released.

There's a difference between "the best 10 Vita games" and "10 Vita games you might not even know exist, but are great"
MKDA_Scorpion  +   452d ago
Whoops, totally misread it. Thought it said Top 10 Games on PS Vita.
