It's a lonely but fun place - Top 10 PlayStation Games Stranded on Vita Island

"When PlayStation Vita released in 2012, expectations were high as Sony's previous handheld (PSP) was quite successful even if it could never quite match with Nintendo's handheld juggernauts." - Tyler Hall from Video Chums

Soul Sacrifice seriously needs another entry.

I would have added Killzone Mercenaries to the list. Overall, good list.

It’s not stranded until 2019, if people really wanted to get some great experiences out the way then they’d buy it. But there are so many stubborn people that made their mind up that won’t happen.

You can go on eBay, OfferUp it any social market place and get one from 70-120 WITH memory card and the games are dirt cheap. But I bet people feel like buying their 5th 3DS for 200 plus because of its color is better then checking out great games.

I guess it’s not always about the games

I could just never find one after I got a stable income, could find games all over the place though

Quite a few of the games aren't dirt cheap. Guess it depends on what you like though. The Japanese anime games tend to hold their value quite well.

One can get digital games pretty cheap a lot of the time, and if they were smart, they'd have added all those vita games on PS+ over the years, and have quite an impressive backlog when they get their system.

There are so many great games for this system that this list does not mention. One of my all time favorite gaming devices.

That’s because gaming Journalism completely failed this device. They felt clickbait articles about it being dead was more interesting to them then actually reviewing the games.

Something I find interesting is how they are choosing to review games now on switch that even released first on Vita. And during this time it was, “why should I buy it on a portable when I can get it on a console” and now they say “the portability of these games is exactly why you buy it on a switch over a base console”.

Bias is obvious

VideoChums96d ago

Yes, this frustrates us, too. We've covered plenty of Vita games over the years and whenever one gets ported to Switch, we just add a note on the review saying that it's also available on Switch. Reviewing the games again is absurd, especially considering the fact that they're usually much more expensive on Switch and are just direct ports or stripped down versions of previously released games. They're very rarely better versions.

Funny that WiiU didn't seem to get this much negativity and that died a while ago. At least Vita is still getting some love while it is dwindling.
