Paste Magazine looks at 2013's best games for the 3DS and Vita.
Where is Killzone: Mercenary? this game deserves it
Best Handheld shooter so far with some really fun multiplayer on the go.
take out spelunky and mario and luigi dream team and phoenix wright ace attorney, put in killzone mercenary and soul sacrifice and dragons crown, and the list is perfect.
Solid list. Having a 3DS this year was kind of awesome, even though I didn't play all the good games for it yet. Now that Vita's price has dropped within my Buy range, I will be getting one. I still have a back log of PSP games on my PSP that I've only owned for a year. I feel bad abandoning it for the Vita just yet, as I love the PSP and want to get more enjoyment and my money's worth from it before I make the jump. This allows more games to be released, which makes the Vita even more appealing. 2014 Should be a damn good year for Console, PC & Handheld games.
Agreed Mercs should have made it there. Other than that, it's a solid list, with exception to Ace Attorney (but I'm jut not a fan of that game:P). Also the line up that came out just yesterday for vita is pretty damn good:D
Exactly. Killzone is the best shooter on a handheld device EVER so it should have a guaranteed spot on all best handheld games list.
I wouldn't put Animal Crossing over Link Between Worlds, but all solid games on that list.
They nailed the list...the order is iffy, but I'm sure everybody's order would be slightly different based on personal experience with the game and tastes in games.
Yep good point very true. I liked the list as well.
For me this year its gonna be Best 3ds game: Fire Emblem: Awakening Best Vita game: Tearaway
I've just started playing Tearaway now my son's finished it, it's great so far, gonna play some more tonight. It's certainly a lovely looking game.
Tearaway is amazing, the most a game has made me smile in a long time, a pretty easy platinum too apart from a few coupple of tricky ones (Tower of doom & Between the pages).
For best Vita game its a tie between Tearaway and YS
Fire Emblem: Awakening at #6 is a bit shocking that is my #1 game this year.
No Killzone? No Ys? Not even the hidden gem that is Malicious Rebirth? Yet there's Spelunky, Hotline Miami, Luigi's Mansion and Mario & Luigi Dream Team? Or rather if you're allowing multiplats, no Dragons Crown? There have been far more deserving games this year, my friend.
I just started played Luigis Mansion. Holy shit, that game is ADDICTING. I'm flipping between that and A Link Between Worlds. Both are great and deserve to be on that list.
