What are the best PS Vita games? First released on 15th February, 2012 in the United States, with a European launch following on 22nd February, 2012, the PS Vita represented Sony's second attempt at a portable PlayStation platform, following the success of the PSP, which sold over 80 million units worldwide. Billed as a home console on the go, the manufacturer packed the machine with cutting-edge features, including a 5-inch OLED multi-touch capacitive screen.
At launch, Sony paired the platform with a number of key franchises, with the tentpole title being Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a full-scale adaptation of Naughty Dog's buccaneering brand, developed by Sony Bend. In addition to eye-popping visuals, this spin-off leaned into all of the system’s key features, including its rear touchpad, camera, and motion sensors. But it was just one of several major franchises available on day one, with the likes of Modnation Racers and Super Stardust Delta also getting adaptations.
With production budgets soaring and third-party developers hesitant to invest in such a small install base, Sony started to tap up the emerging indie scene to keep PS Vita's software slate active, and introduced the cross-buy initiative – allowing games purchased on the PS3 to be playable on the portable as well. Many titles even adopted cross-save functionality, perhaps planting the seed for Nintendo Switch's hybrid approach.
Despite being well-liked among enthusiasts, however, the PS Vita sold fewer than 15 million units worldwide, and Sony's first-party output dried up as it turned its attention to the more popular PS4. Some feel that the manufacturer pulled the plug too early, and bone-headed decisions like using expensive proprietary memory cards killed the console before it even had a chance. Of course, smartphones had become more established by 2012, and the system faced stiff competition throughout its lifespan from the Nintendo 3DS.
Nevertheless, the PS Vita remains something of a cult classic among PlayStation enthusiasts. Its slick form factor and cutting-edge display made it an exceptional host for a number of top titles, and on this page we’ve included the best PS Vita games you can buy today. Whether you picked up the portable at launch or are looking to jump in a decade after it first deployed, we’ve got you covered with this list of must haves – as determined by you, the reader.
If you disagree with the order, then it's up to you to do something about it: you'll find a search panel above, which allows you to find your favourite games and rate them accordingly. The list will automatically adjust based on your decisions, so vote carefully. Please do keep in mind, however, that a game will need at least 30 individual ratings before appearing on this list, so if your obscure favourites are missing – well, that may be why.
Best PlayStation Games by Platform
- Best PS3 Games

- Best PS Plus Games
- Best PSP Games
- Best PSVR2 Games
With all that out of the way, scroll down for our definitive list of the best PS Vita games, as determined by you...
50. Mortal Kombat (PS Vita)
Mortal Kombat has a long and storied history on handheld platforms, dating all the way back to the Game Boy and Game Gear. But this conversion of NetherRealm’s ninth instalment in the legendary fighting franchise really sparkled on the PS Vita. While it made a lot of concessions visually, resulting in some fairly gnarly presentation on par with its finishers, the gameplay was practically identical to its home console counterpart – and it even bundled in some fun touchscreen minigames as a bonus for players on the move.
49. SteamWorld Dig (PS Vita)
The game that put developer Image & Form on the map, Steamworld Dig may not be as ambitious as the titles that followed it, but there's still lots to love about this charming platformer. There's a puzzle-like feel to Dig's mining mechanics, as you navigate increasingly treacherous underground terrain, grabbing all-important loot as you progress. Addictive stuff.
48. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (PS Vita)
While ports were pretty common on PS Vita, some developers saw the device as an opportunity to reimagine some of their biggest brands. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate was not a low-resolution port of its PS3 peer, then, but an entirely new title set within Rocksteady’s overarching universe. It failed to hit the highs of the mainline games, but this is still an entertaining enough side-scroller inspired by DC’s dark detective.
47. Unit 13 (PS Vita)
A valiant attempt from the underappreciated Zipper Interactive to transform SOCOM’s strategic combat into short-form gauntlets that could be played in five to ten minute sessions, either solo or in co-op. Unit 13 understood the PS Vita, and blended console-style gameplay with missions designed specifically for portability. While its poor commercial performance rounded out a disappointing run for the developer and ultimately culminated in its closure, this was an entertaining outing that arguably deserved a lot more love.
46. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (PS Vita)
Mario Kart is in a league of its own when it comes to party racers, but Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed comes very close. In addition to being extremely entertaining, this release also has reverence for SEGA’s back catalogue, which means there’s even Burning Rangers representation here. But even if you can’t tell Ryo Hazuki from Reala, its multi-disciplined courses – spanning aerial and aquatic action, as well as the ordinary asphalt – make this one of the best racing games on the PS Vita by far.
45. Soul Sacrifice (PS Vita)
When Sony lost Monster Hunter to Nintendo, it was devastating for the PS Vita. Capcom’s co-op franchise had played a pivotal role in pushing the PSP domestically in Japan, and its absence left a gaping chasm in the handheld’s library. The company worked tirelessly to plug that gap, and Soul Sacrifice was one of its efforts: a dark fantasy action RPG with a strong emphasis on coordination and impossible odds. It was a great and successful attempt, and it spawned an enhanced re-release, named Soul Sacrifice Delta.
44. Freedom Wars (PS Vita)
Sony’s desperation for a Monster Hunter alternative saw it fling a lot of ideas at the wall, and Freedom Wars came with such an intense marketing campaign that it’s a surprise it only received a single instalment. This anime-inspired co-op title was the posterboy for the PS Vita TV, and saw you assume the role of a prisoner who must complete various quests in order to reduce their sentence. It played great: it was a third-person shooter with grappling systems that made for some entertaining traversal and coordinated attack mechanics. Unfortunately, despite becoming one of the best-selling PS Vita games in Japan, the manufacturer eventually ceased first-party development for the format, and it was never ported to the PS4.
43. Thomas Was Alone (PS Vita)
How do you make a game effectively about geometric shapes resonant and impactful? To be honest, we’re still not entirely sure, but Thomas Was Alone goes above and beyond the traditional puzzle platformer. It works within the confines of its own obvious boundaries to create an experience where simple silhouettes have actual personality, and like so many other indie experiences, it feels perfectly tailored for portable play sessions.
42. MotorStorm RC (PS Vita)
MotorStorm was one of the best new franchises Sony introduced during the PS3 era, but while it was best known for its larger-than-life action, its radio-controlled alternative was excellent too. MotorStorm RC was a Micro Machines-esque racer with instant restarts and slippy handling. It looked and felt fantastic on the PS Vita, and with some smart online integration, it was really addictive challenging your friends for the best times and score. While it wasn’t the full-blown MotorStorm experience that fans had hoped for on the handheld after the PSP’s Arctic Edge, we’d argue it was actually better.
41. The Unfinished Swan (PS Vita)
Originally released for the PS3 and later ported to the PS Vita, The Unfinished Swan is a Santa Monica Studio incubated debut effort from developer Giant Sparrow, which would later go on to release games like What Remains of Edith Finch. This walking simulator-esque experience toys with a number of gameplay ideas, including one system in which you’re required to navigate an “invisible” environment by throwing paint around it to reveal its secrets. It’s perhaps a little inconsistent in hindsight, but its inventiveness remains as impactful even today.
My favorites are Uncharted Golden Abyss and Killzone Shadowfall., I actually pulled my Vita out yesterday to play some golden abyss after seeing Uncharted in theaters. Forgot how comfortable it is to play! After seeing Shu playing GOW on Steam Deck, I think it’s safe to say we’re not getting another Sony handheld anytime soon.
Ouch, no Dragon's Crown. That one remains my favourite Vita game. If I'm getting on the train it's either Dragon's Crown or Mario Kart for me.
Best handheld console since the game boy, but unfortunately couldn't get the support plus sony messed up its pricing especially with the memory cards
Great list, personally would also have:
WRC4 (such a good rally game)
Gravity Rush (guessing I’ve missed that because it is an essential game for the Vita)
Salt and Sanctuary
I don’t know the order I’d put them in but Persona 4 Golden, Child of Light, Killzone Mercenary, Final Fantasy X and Shovel Knight would probably round out my top five, likely in that order.
I couldn’t get over how good Killzone was as a FPS on a handheld. Even the multiplayer felt really good.
To everyone who didn't vote Odin Sphere onto this list, I hate you.
Great list though it's odd to see some very low games there. Maybe some titles that were deep into the alphabet didn't get enough votes? People have already listed up some good titles that were snubbed so I'll go ahead and mention my favorite PSVita title - Papers, Please.
Why no Virtua Tennis 4? That game was lots of fun on Vita. I mean, the entire list is redundant anyway what with Fez not being at number 1 and that nonsense Persona 4 being included in the list at all, but still.
I just read the article fully and realise I can do something about it myself. But I’m too laaazzzyyy
I am the opposite.
I thought PS VITA games library really terrible for me, like almost no kiddie games like on 3DS.
The games I found just majority adult games, hentai games, boring sport games like what the heck are they. I never like any of them.
The only PS VITA games that caught my attention just only three, just only freaking three games.
Modnation Racers Road Trip
I saw Sly Cooper and Ratchet & Clank Trilogy games also on PS VITA but I already have them on PS3 version with better performance.
I still really on the fence to even consider PS VITA as I only have three games that I have interest about, not even a worthy purchase.
I will not buy a machine just to play 3 casual games.
That's why I choose 3DS over than PS VITA for having tons of kiddie and cute games for kids, even I have four 3DS XL machines with three different regions and more than 50 3DS games.
Needs a Stardew Valley on that list so it does.
@kyleforrester87 too lazy to click on numbers , but plenty of energy to whine in the comments. 😉
I particularly enjoy playing Killzone Mercernary and PlayStation All Stars. I also enjoy Dissidia Final Fantasy too. Wish they would release another Dissidia game like this because NT was just dreadful in comparison.
@Wesker you’ve changed man. What happened?
Remember that you can shape this list with your user votes, so feel free to use the search box at the start of the article if you disagree with any of the results!
@kyleforrester87 you know what else has changed? War. Which reminds me. Shouldn’t the transfarring version of MGS be on this list. Or everyone hates MGS?
@Wesker hey if you want to see it on the list go ahead and vote, stop moaning in the comments, jeez
Ys memories of celceta should be in the top 5!
@kyleforrester87 and have it threaten P4G’s rightful place at number 1? No chance!
I wished sony to come with the steam deck idea, i wonder if they will think to give another shot to handheld consoles.
Where in God's name is Gravity Rush/Daze?
@Anti-Matter there are plenty of kiddie games. You just weren't looking hard enough. Clearly.
I had searched from playasia and those three games I could find, the exclusive PS VITA games that passed my inspection. Just only three games.
The other kiddie games I found were either already available on PS4 / Switch or didn't even I have interest about.
@Wesker go play FF7 already.
Surprised to see Gravity Rush didn't make it anywhere but other than that I'm happy with the list. Still love ya Vita! You deserved a better hand than you were dealt.
Edit: Oh and Trails of Cold Steel 1&2 need a spot somewhere too!
The vita always felt like the console that should have been my favourite of all time but ended up being a bit disappointing (didn't get it's own God of war, gran turismo or metal gear...) Not without some good memories though.
Gravity rush is the definition of a flawed gem. One of my favourites ever. I originally bought it thinking it'll do as I wait for a vita infamous (which we never got) but ended up being much better than it.
Tearaway was one of the few games that made all the gimmicks of the vita make sense. Kind of felt like the vita was made with this game mind, such talented Devs.
Persona 3 portable/ 4 golden I was hesitant about. Really didn't think a school SIM game would be up my alley but nothing else of value was releasing so I went for it, borderline got addicted to them! Not sure they would connect to me as much if I played them today, but I'll have the good memories of playing them.
Honourable mentions would go to Giacamelee, Wipeout, escape plan, Rayman origins/legends, sound shapes, all stars battle royale, dragons crown and I'm struggling to think of anything else unfortunately.
Uncharted GA is easily the top game on the depressing handheld. You know when you have Sonic Racing as one of the top games that the library is rather sad for what it should have been.
On the 10 year anniversary of the worst Playstation ever released... I'd like to raise two middle fingers at Sony and the entire gaming industry for taking a fat dump on early adopters of this handheld.
Our Vitas get pulled out every week still, what a great platform. Worms and Russian Subway Dogs should be on the list somewhere!
Where the F is Frobisher Says!
Killzone mercanary. muramasa rebirth.gravity rush.uncharted golden abyss.sly cooper thieves and times and collection.and soul sacrifice. Persona 4 golden. freedom wars was cool also .little big planet.etc.so many.word up son
I joined the Vita party relatively late but I love the system. It's such a lovely handheld with a small library nonetheless but plenty of great games. It had plenty of PS2 ports, I loved the Sly Cooper Trilogy and Persona 4 Golden is what made me get into the Persona series as well as an attachment for the PlayStation brand. It's such a shame a combination of competition from mobile devices and 3DS at the time, as well as Sony failing in many regards with the Vita from expensive memory cards to a lack of support. The Vita deserved to do so much better and it's a shame we're most likely never getting another handheld from Sony. I see games release on Switch all the time and think "this would have worked great on Vita or even a Vita successor". I love picking it up every now and then to jump into a visual novel, platformer, RPG or a PS1 classic.
Ok, I get it why the Vita tanked now. You guys pick these at the best Vita games over all the actual really good games.
Dude, this is a weird coincidence. For some reason I've been thinking about going back to my VITA. Can you even still buy games on that?
This article came out perfectly. Finally ordered me a Vita slim. I loved my PSP back in the day and can’t wait to start collecting for this gem. But first, downloading all my old games and playing some psone classics. Those were the days.
No Murasaki Baby? That was a ride.
Also, hack it, run psp and ps1 games, and emulate everything else.
It’s one of the biggest purchase regrets buying the Vita. The screen is awesome and the console looks beautiful (I got the Japanese blue one in 2019); but there really isn’t much to play at all. Even Trails of Cold Steel i’m struggling to get into.
Compare this to the top 3DS games… jeez.
How DARE you not include Gravity Rush?!
Wow. Someone doesn't know Vita very much do they?
Where's Gravity Rush? Where's Wipeout 2048? Where's Telltale Game's Wolf Among Us? Where's Metal Gear Solid HD collection? Where's Tearaway? Rayman Origins? Y's Memories of Celceta? among some other greats?
I've got a lot of Vita games, and you've missed a lot of titles that should be here. I mean I know favs are selective, but theres some mediocre titles that have been placed on this list which should be replaced by better titles.
Tearaway Unfolded was my favorite PS Vita game
@LazyLombax Same here. Plus one of the most fun games I've ever played. A shame that it didn't get the love it deserved.
I bought my second hand PSTV so I could play P4G on my flat screen. Never did. Pointless now I own a gaming PC.
I'm not surprised my first Vita game is not on the list - Valkyrie Bhikkuni Overdrive. That's a niche game right there.
It is a crime that TxK is not in this list.
@naruball lol, I got this comment and a Uncharted movie comment mixed up. My bad 🤣
@LazyLombax haha. No worries. Thought so
The Vita is a great system that should have used Micro SD cards as the storage. Sony insisting on proprietary memory technology is just insane! Anyway, the library is great even though it should have had time to get bigger. As far as the system itself goes it is super easy to softmod and after doing that it becomes well worth the asking price! NES, SNES, Genesis, GBA, Vita, PSX, PSP, Arcade games, PC games that have been ported over like Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Half-life, also GTA Chinatown Wars, GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas, Bully, Max Payne. ScummVM also has a port for the system so include all the classic Point & Click games from LucasArts, Sierra and others, as well as Beavis & Butthead Virtual Stupidity. This system is AMAZING!
I added in my votes for best on Vita, but it looks like I have unpopular choices. My favourites are:
1) Dragon's Crown
2) Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward
3) Final Fantasy X (this made the list)
4) Guacamelee (this made the list!)
5) Stardew Valley
I'm glad at least one Vanillaware game made the list. If you have a vita, you really should get all 3 games by them. Despite them not appearing on many top lists, they some of the best playing and looking games on the handheld.
It’s wild considering how many of these multi platform games are also on Nintendo Switch. For example I like to own, as I’ve stated before so I don’t know why I’m saying it again, but I buy almost all the big Switch releases. At least all the hardcore games as that’s what I am: a true hardcore gamer. I don’t think many others have actual arcade rooms in their estate’s main building! I have two but considering knocking through : an arcade room with 14 machines and a pinball room with 8 tables. Looking get more pinball tables once my dividends come in next. I have those rooms full of mementos too from music CDs to books to dev films. Fun info to know is all game devs will have someone recording it all for fun in a fun way. Usually only the company will have a copy but if you’re pals or if they for instance like me, if they’re using a formula/algorithm you developed, or a story you wrote, or if they’re just a fan of your work : you can always ask if you can have a copy. I bet not many people have those. So yeah : rare and real stuff. Unlike those NFTs that are worthless junk pyramid schemes. You get a receipt saying you paid for a jpg file on someone’s server. If like me you possess a webhost you can just upload a file just like that. No need for idiotic ZzzzNFTs. Gross. If you want money just make something and sell it. Easy. I still get royalties and dividends from decades ago.
So yeah no casual stuff for me and my 600 hour animal crossing save I’m deep into right this moment!
Always funny when kids claim to be hardcore and they’re just nerds glued to a ***** chair on a ***** computer that has gross unfashionable Christmas tree lights spewing out of it. Every time I see them there’s no trois coleur system (spelling mistake. I can only speak French I’ve never really written in it). Are those kids dumb in their heads? You have a primary, secondary, and tertiary colouring system. Not “random(255)” every second for every RGB.
I don’t see my favourite Vita games on here. There’s three I adore, I love, that I played for more than a few hours. I won’t even say them. And there’s four now. I will say the last inclusion though: Luftrauser. I’m not having a go. Everyone has different tastes. Just I find it gross when opinion is presented as fact. That and far right wing hypocrisy is what winds me up. And how dumb any right winger is. They’d rather hurt themselves to hurt an immigrant than help themselves if it also hurts an immigrant. Those kind of people should just evaporate.
Truth be told I barely played my OLED VITA. I adored it’s shape and styling. The power it had at the time. The excited feeling I got preordering mine with Rayman Origins one of the best games of last gen. I 100 percent finished it in single player previously I’d only spend so much time in a game if it was interesting aka with friends and family. Nerds who stare at screens all day by themselves are too desperate to exist ha ha.
The switch is what I consider the best system ever. I’ve so many games above the 100hr mark. I can play it handheld around friends, in hidden reading nooks squirreled away being cosy, in any room or building on the estate OR their TVs. Nothing like it. And so many perfect games. Smash Bros, Minecraft, Breath of the Wild, PokémonS, Mario kart, all the Mario platformers, all the indie gems, emulated N64 portable FINALLY! Oled switch is the best.
…. Continuing on…
Switch does need Persona 3 and 4 though. The amazing classics only found in this combination on the Switch: Duke3D, Doom 1-Eternal, FF7-12 minus 11, Fez, Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 8 Ultimate (best racing game ever imo), Crysis 1-3, Borderlands 1-2, Street Fighter 1-Alpha including the best version of SF2 and it’s an exclusive, Sonic 1-Mania minus 3K, Assassins Creed 2-4, Pokémon Arceus (WOW!!), Quake, all those arcade and neo geo ports, Burnout Paradise, GTA3 series, Castlevania GBA collection (wow again. Aria of Sorrow the best in its entire series), Minecraft bedrock (the best way to play it), Stardew valley, MK11 Komplete with all its skins unlocked, DB FighterZ, Tony Hawks 1-2, SKYRIM (WOW!), Octopath and soon Triangle Strategy, Captain Toad, Hades and Hollow knight, Fire Emblem 3 Houses, XCOM2 complete, BIOSHOCK all, Snipperclips, KOTOR!!!!, DIABLO 3 (wows!!), Celeste (indie game made by one of the best people alive). There’s more but that’s what comes to mind in an instant.
I literally don’t know how any logical being can not like the Switch. It doesn’t make sense. One must be incredibly biased. One is allowed to not like something but one can’t say something is objectively bad without logical reasons.
Logical reasons why Switch is, to a very long time playing, all console owning, worked in the industry prior to academia: too many good games, can play handheld or TV without a fuss, OLED display, the most flexible console in terms of playing positions (using stands and holders). Large eShop with constant sales (like a lot of consoles have).
Prior to Switch I didn’t play much Wii U or 3DS. In fact I played PS4 more! I never thought Nintendo would get another home run. I’ve never worked for Nintendo but have for MS and Sony so I should be more biased to them as I have only but good memories due to only having good times working for them leaving on my own accord for example.
Switch is missing some classics like GTA5 which is possible as it’s on PS3 already. Ff7 remake at a low res would be incredible too. As well as FF13 and 15.
I love and still play my PS Paperweight….. uh…..‘ Vita’ from time to time. The games I enjoyed the most were Unit 13, RESISTANCE: Burning Skies and yes even the widely hated COD: Black Ops Declassified. But the 2 games I enjoyed that I thought really made the most out of all the aspects the Vita brought to the table were Gravity Rush and UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss.
Persona 4 is so overrated. There's so many better JRPG's on Vita, like Lost Dimension or Mind Zero.
@Milktastrophe From what I can tell based on videos, Mind Zero and Lost Dimension are completely different subgenres of JRPG, and definitely don't appear to be anywhere near as interesting or in-depth as P4G.
@MiaowMinx Lost Dimension is way more interesting and in-depth than Persona 4. Outside of the combat revolves around using detective skills to determine which characters are traitors (this is not fixed). Sure, it's a strategy RPG, but that also means by definition the combat is more in-depth than P4's (and you can add onto that that the party members you like to use could be the traitors).
Mind Zero is a dungeon crawler, so perhaps it's more similar to SMT proper in that regard, but dungeon crawlers aren't that different than third person RPG's, they're first person. Mind Zero's combat is actually very similar Persona's, but the plot is better and isn't burdened by a time limit to complete things.
For me the best games for psvita is persona 4 golden and dragon crown pro. Man I hope atlus port dragon crown pro to switch (oled) since I want to play the game again.
Oh, and playing psone titles on psvita is a blast, I usually replay castlevania sotn on psvita back then.
Darkest Dungeon and a dishonourable mention for Pantsu Hunter?
Was excited to see this list come together and see what the pushsquare audience picks. I'm with @Shepherd_Tallon that Dragon's Crown is my favourite game on the vita.
Here's my personal top ten.
1) Dragon's Crown
2) Final Fantasy X
3) Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward
5) Stardew Valley
6) LoH: Trails of Cold Steel 2 (unfortunately not on pushsquare)
7) Sound Shapes
8) Odin Sphere
9) Child of Light
10) Shakedown: Hawaii
Be sure to rate yours!
Hey, hey. I'm a little late to the party but here's my top 10:
Personal faves are:
1. Gravity Rush
2. Muramasa Rebirth
3. Odin Sphere
4. Dragon's Crown
5. Persona 4 Golden
6. FFX HD
7. Freedom Wars
8. Ragnarok Odyssey ACE
9. Disgaea 4
10. Super Robot Wars X
Just picked up a Vita last week. Me and the kids are absolutely loving it. They haven't went near their switches since we got it. Those games added to my library via PlayStation Plus are coming in very handy now 😊
@Odium 100% agreed.
I never really got into Killzone on the 'Big Consoles" but the Vita version was friggin awesome, and it ran so damn smooth.
played some online matches with some buddies and this game proved to me Sony were onto something good with the Vita here!
Sadly Sony just could not help themselves digging the grave early for this piece of hardware ahead of it's time.
The pricing of the memory cards just killed it doa.
I like the love PS Vita still receives on here! Great list!
@BlaBlaBla sadly, I think you’re right that the memory card pricing put a ton of people off of it, which is a shame considering there’s some fantastic games on the Vita. I’m not much of an online player but I played the hell out of this online. I was on third shift when I started dating my wife so my sleep cycle was a mess, I’d always bring my Vita with me to play some matches when I inevitably couldn’t sleep.
Reliance on ratings rather than the games' merits is bound to make the list weird anyway (Gravity Rush, Tearaway, NFS MW12... all HOW low here?), but it's still an eyebrow raiser that Soul Sacrifice is listed twice while something arguably even more peculiar among the MH inspirations like Toukiden or God Eater misses out. After all, the only pragmatic reason to indulge with such top charts at all is the spotlight value it can provide in regards to the titles different folks may have overlooked or never heard about, plus a testimony to the ultimately impressive library of what I still consider the best PlayStation console to date. Hot take? You haven't seen hot takes yet - I even genuinely enjoyed Resistance: Burning Skies!😜 But of course, few lists short of the full Wikipedia ones can do justice to everything that arguably bears mentioning on Vita dear - from the likes of Rollers of the Realm, Knock-Knock and Exile's End to the likes of Assassin's Creed Liberation, Oreshika and Odin's Sphere. Many of the gems are still not on Switch and some might never be for variably obvious reasons, so even ten years on, this lovable handheld offers quite a backlog to sink teeth into.
@Shepherd_Tallon It's on there. #29
@LucasMcL Cheers! It wasn't on the list last February.
Glad to see it in there.
I know Sony would never make handhelds again but I really wished they would. VITA was an awesome bit of kit and I'd love to see it come back with L2 and R2 and proper analogue sticks. Imagine having the haptic and pressured triggered like the PS5 controller but on a handheld
I played a lot of Vita. But looking over this list and having played pretty much all of these games on this list, I have to say the Vita has the weekest library of all the PlayStation consoles/handhelds. Its not without some good stuff, but overall compared to PS1-5 and the PSP, it doesn’t even come close. It could’ve been something really cool. But Sony really didn’t give it a chance.
Odin Sphere missing a description like the others?
"Is Sly Cooper the most underrated PlayStation mascot of the PS2 era?"
Yes. Yes he is. Absolutely incredible games.
Great handheld, lots of great Indie games and HD collections. Awesome AAA games like Uncharted Golden Abyss were very rare on Vita, something PSP had plenty of. Exclusive AAA games like GTA would have helped to make Vita more popular. I sold the Vita and moved to Switch, which shows that AAA can still sell on handhelds. Maybe one day Sony will try again with the handheld. I would buy it.
One of my favorites is Lumines: Electronic Symphony. Desperately needs a re-release!
Ok, where is Txk?
I really regret I never got a Vita. The only Playstation device I never had (and the PSVRs).
