The Short Pause staff updates their Top 10 favorite PlayStation Vita games just in time for the handheld's third anniversary. Did your favorites make the list?
Even though it didn't make our list this year, I just started playing Persona 4 Golden, and even though I'm not far enough into it to add to this list, I'm still pretty impressed with how much there is to do in that game, and it just keeps adding new things all the time! At this rate, I'm pretty confident it'll be on this list next year!
Easily one of the best Vita games if not one of the best games period. Enjoy - it continually gets better especially in the second half of the game!
the console desperately needs the Mon HUn 5 & series on it ...and AAA japan console exclusive (not Sony systems exclusive) ...by giving Vita exclusives to PS4 Sony backstabbing their own console
@TheDude79 Better late than never, Persona 4 Golden is truly one of the best games ever created.
I'd add Muramasa Rebirth, I like that game a lot.
Also Freedom Wars and Soul Sacrifice Delta, but in the end this is shortpause.com personal list, so it is all good ;)
Soul Sacrifice, Katamari
@Antikbaka: Soul Sacrifice was definitely a really good game! Sadly, I have yet to play a single Katamari game! I'll add it to my list of Vita games to play @Spotie: I enjoyed Gravity Rush as well, but I'd really like to see a sequel. It has serious potential as a series!
also maybe some psp games, like patapon 1-3. i actually bought ps vita because of nostalgia about those 3 Hotline Miami...but it's multiplatform and steam is always cheaper. Rayman Origins is great too. Thimling about buying Tearaway. Binding of isaac woul be great choice too, but it's not cross-buy (what a shame). "Thomas was alone" was a great indie discovery. Disgaea 4 since it's an HD port, although i'd love to play Disgaea 2 in hd if they made one, the best theme song there. "Stick it to the man" Just fun and good game, nothing serious. Persona 3 - bought one with 2D city visual style but battles were 3D like in P4 Golden, although didn't regret it. And the last but not the least - Virtue's Last reward. Oh, the story and puzzles, and all that time jumping and choices felt like reading old interective book.
Just Finished KZ:Mercenary twice... best KZ since 2.
It was soooo hard removing KZ:M off that list, like painfully hard. Doesn't take away from the fact that it most definitely is the best KZ since 2, I agree 100% with you!
Persona, Danganronpa 1&2 and the Disgaea games need to be in a top 10 list.
Wasn't a big fan of Uncharted Golden Abyss.Could of used R2 L2, and the analog aiming was kind weird for me. Now Gravity Rush! I don't understand why that's not the highest rated Hanheld game this gen... Oh yeah... it's a PlayStation exclusive.Poor Gravity Rush, instead of getting the recognition you deserve, you'll get. "In a game about altering gravity, I never expected to go upside down 7.5:(" smh poor you. What's next, they give a good Sword art online game a 5.5 for having bad english to Japanese translation, that you mostly understand ? ???... Oh...
Wait no Japanese games on the list! Did someone say xenophobia?
What games should we be playing? We may have just not played any of the games you like! Let us know, please, so we can add them to the our queue of games to play!
-Dangan Ronpa 1 -Dangan Ronpa 2 -Persona 4G -Gravity Rush -Soul Sacrifice Delta -Toukiden Kiwami -Hatsune Miku Project Diva F -Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus And how about trying out any of the Hyperdimension Neptunia games, theres like 6 of em on Vita.
@Nonscpo Played: Gravity Rush, Soul Sacrifice, Toukiden: The Age of Demons Playing: Person 4G Will Play: Dangan Ronpa per your suggestion Thanks for the input!
I absolutely love this machine. I wish it was selling better so we could see Golden Abyss 2, Tearaway 2, a new handheld God of War, and so on. I play a lot of PSP classics, and JRPG's on this puppy, and rarely put it down. Dangan Ronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is incredible, one of my pleasant surprises in gaming. Didn't know anything really about it except it reviewed well and bought it on a whim. One of the best experiences I've had gaming.
Great Kick & Fennick is getting some attention.
Only 3 years on the market? ....Why does it feel longer? Anyway, happy 3rd term PS Vita. Under appreciated by the masses, but those who own and enjoy it, know its worth ;)
Terrible list imo. How Kick and Fenick could make the list over Rayman Legends, Rayman Origins, Ratchet Collection, and LBP is crazy.
