Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII should have beed added to PSP and kid Icarus Uprising to 3DS. 7_7
Cennus  +   1317d ago
Uprising is really good but I felt that Revelations does a lot for a 'sinking ship' franchise like Resident Evil. It was a nice breathe of fresh air while Uprising brings back an old character. Don't get me wrong, I like Uprising but I don't believe it does enough like Revelations.

Also, I love Crisis Core but there are so many good PSP games that it would be hard for anyone to pick three and have everyone happy with it.

Very true.
There should be a top 10.

But IMO, people should give the 3DS and VITA another year (or two) before making lists like this.

Wipeout 2048 is not on one of the best games for the Vita?

This article fails.
Cennus  +   1317d ago
Multiplayer was really limited. Ad-hoc mode was almost unbearable. Something was off about the racing, too. It just didn't feel as good as HD on the PS3.

I still enjoy me some Wipeout, though.

They forgot ios:

Chaos rings
Infinity Blade
Galaxy on fire

Those would be my 3
Hicken  +   1317d ago
iOS is not on handhelds, therefore none of those games are/should be mentioned. And no matter how much you want them to be, mobile devices are not and cannot compare to dedicated devices(they can hardly compare to the earlier devices listed in the article in terms of gaming capability), so stop trying.

For me, The World Ends with You is the best game I played on DS. That game's better than most console games I've played.

On PSP, Crisis Core is missing. To me, it's the best part of the FFVII sub-series, and really doesn't get the regular recognition it deserves.
