Seems like vita was made for persona.

Do you intentionally mispronounce everything or have you just never said these words and names before? You have a nice voice and it sounds like English is your native language, so what gives?

Final fantasy to me was always the best of the best. It seemed like it doesn't matter the game, the company does what it wants and often creates it's own gameplay, each final fantasy varying in style and gameplay from the next creating a more diverse community. I tried several of the persona and it didn't hook me at all. I felt like playing a Anime spinoff of devil may cry. Where there is 2 worlds and something is always happening between the 2 to create conflict for the protagonist.

i think the creator of this video needs to research what a real RPG is......
Lucidrequiem (11 months ago)
You have absolutely no idea what an rpg is...that much is very clear. You seem to think it means side scroller, it doesn't. Vita has some very good rpg's, you managed to miss most of them on a list of rpg's.....your level of failure is truly impressive. I couldn't have done better myself unless i posted a video that said "top 10 Apple products" and then filmed myself taking a massively toilet shattering shit.....wait...my video would actually be extremely accurate, never mind.
Miguel Condado Olivar (7 months ago)
Lucidrequiem Could you point me towards some good RPGs?
Robin Mattheussen (11 months ago)
I realize these Whatoplay videos are insanely low quality, but putting The Binding of Isaac, Gravity Rush, Rogue Legacy, Muramasa Rebirth and Soul Sacrifice on a list of Role-playing games has to be a new low. And why is the best series on the system (Trails of Cold Steel) only an honorable mention when you were clearly in dire need for more actual RPGs?
ian moone (9 months ago)
Robin Mattheussen Soul Sacrifice is an rpg though
portal78 (11 months ago)

Luvbacon (1 year ago)
Gravity Rush, Binding of Isaac, Muramasa, Rogue Legacy? These really aren't RPGs by any definition in use.
whatoplay (1 year ago)
You're right. We're working on our categorizations a the moment. For now, we'll settle with going by developer definitions. We hope this will be enough to satisfy our viewers.
Luvbacon (1 year ago)
And no, Dragons Crown does not in any way define what is an RPG. An rpg needs character power growth, character development, some level of strategic combat, and story.

The 5th Persona was placed under a different name for the Wii U it's the Shin Megami Tenshi Toyko Mirage FE. It's a Persona / Fire Emblem cross over. Follows the same basic Persona set up we all love and adds a weird twist with the Fire Emblem Franchise we all love as a tactical game.

Le Kanraposte (1 year ago)
"Elements" does NOT make the _whole_ thing. Just because in a fighting game you can "level up" does not make this a "RPG". A RPG must have an important central story, interaction with NPCs, customisation with items and exploration. There is two kinds. The JRPG with random encounters like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, and the Adventure RPG like Zelda and Skyrim. Here, they show PURE action games and try to pass them up as "RPG". This make no senses. Just to be clear, let's take a very dramatic movie about a guy who must deal with the fact that he's about to die of cancer for the 199 minutes of the movie's 200. And then, literally at the _last_ minute, he's taken by a UFO to be cured. Does this make that movie a science fiction one? NO. It's a tear jerking drama, nothing more, nothing less. While we're at it, Pac-Man could be a fucking "RPG" because you play Pac-Man's "role" and you get "experience points". Stop mudding the RPG term on everything. Pepper on a bannana dosent change it into a steak.
Idraki Faeez (1 year ago)
Le Kanraposte The idiot is you. Those games on the list contains rpg elements which being said, it is rpg games in short :>> pft
Idraki Faeez (1 year ago)
Le Kanraposte First, rpg has grown into many sub-categories (either its action-rpg, or contain rpg elements). Second, you cant blame the channel. They only follow the officials tag the games and store listing (which is rpg)

SnazzyBoxx (1 year ago)
Why are there so many platformers and side scrollers? The ps vita is capable of bigger and better things , yet when I go to the store there are no decent 3D adventure/mature/free roam games. What waste of an amazing portable console
kingmatt2563 (1 year ago)
SnazzyBoxx Because of the limitations of memory and the poor marketing campaign in the west, 3d games never really took off. I expected a GTA on the system. I want Sega to port Shenmue onto the system, but that will never happen.

Can you get us a play score for the Inazuma Eleven series please ?
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Sure, we'll provide a list of the games current PlayScore on 3DS below. On 3DS: Inazuma Eleven - *8.22* Inazuma Eleven 3: Bomb Blast - *7.84* Inazuma Eleven 3: Team Ogre Attack! - *7.71* Inazuma Eleven GO: Light - *8.07* Inazuma Eleven GO: Shadow - *8.01* Inazuma Eleven Go: Chrono Stones: Wildfire - *8.15* Sadly, Inazuma Eleven Go: Chrono Stones: Thunderflash hasn't received enough Critic reviews for us to know it's PlayScore on 3DS.

why there is no videos about Vita is it dead 😀
Epic Troll Internet (1 year ago)
Idraki Faeez but god eater 2 / toukiden 2 is as good as monster hunter, summon night 6 are as good as fire emblem, OK the ps vita are don't have pokemon, but have digimon :) the Rayman origins/legends on vita are as good as mario on 3ds, danganronpa are as good as Phoenix wright the only difference is the 3ds games have lot more marketing in west, the vita games does not have the same marketing in west, they just they uploading them to ps store without marketing
majed jameel (1 year ago)
+Idraki Faeez boring Is that a joke 😹😹 OK play killzone on your Vita

how about god eater rage burst??
whatoplay (1 year ago)
Currently, GOD EATER 2 Rage Burst hasn't received enough Critic reviews for us to know it's PlayScore on PS Vita. For reference, GOD EATER 2 Rage Burst on PS4 has a PlayScore of *8.31* so far.
lnsflare1 (1 year ago)
jude decear Technically, the God Eater/Freedom Wars/etc... games are Action Adventure games where you advance through a combination of building new gear from loot and gitting gud, like in Monster Hunter. Soul Sacrifice does have an experience based progression system based on whether you save/sacrifice/coin-toss the creatures you defeat, so it fits as an RPG from a mechanical standpoint.

wheres p4 dance all night?
lnsflare1 (1 year ago)
Shinarock As that's not an RPG, It's imagine that it's on a different list. That being said, the Vita probably has enough Rhythm Games to make a top ten list of those as well.

alfaukos_tacos (1 year ago)
If you liked persona 4 golden, I highly recommend giving Trails of Cold Steel 1&2 a shot, it's definitely up there with P4G, in my book.
DiskFelcore (1 year ago)
I am finishing up FFX on the vita right now(played it on PS2 just replaying it) I was looking for other JRPGs to play on my lunch break and when I dont want to turn on my PS4, they look good, I added them onto my Amazon wishlist as a reminder when Im done with FFX.
alfaukos_tacos (1 year ago)
ProtosMerkabah plating it takes some grinding, but i grew up loving the grind in jrpgs. plated that, both cold steels and p4g, etc.
ProtosMerkabah (1 year ago)
+caos024 I'm getting both because both series are boss! Memories of Celceta was one of the first Vita games I completed (didn't platinum though...)
caos024 (1 year ago)
alfaucko I hope so. Falcom deserve more love for Legend of Heroes series and even for the YS series. Both are great series in their own right. I'll be buying Trails of Cold Steel 3 and YS 8 on PS4 to support them. Those 2 series deserve a lot more recognition.
alfaukos_tacos (1 year ago)
Agreed, on all points, and another point, towards hope for Cold Steel(and the Legend of Heroes, in general) gaining a following, is that Persona 4 was also released on PS2 years after PS3 was out, so maybe it'll all just snowball, kinda like the Persona series. Either way, you're right, P4G is definitely one of my faves, too, but I would like for Falcom to get more love in the future for their awesome work

I really wish the vita had better RPGs. I would actually play it then.
kainhighwind2 (1 year ago)
Yeah, with the PSP and PS1 catalog off the PSN, the Vita can give you Final Fantasy 1-10 on the go. Not to mention games like Breath of Fire 3, FFTactics: The War of the Lions, Dissidia 012 Duodecim, Persona 1-3, and a bunch more. It's also a fantastic system for fighting games if you're into them. Mortal Kombat 9, BlazBlue, Street Fighter, Dead or Alive... Not to mention the wonderful ability to stream from your PS4 to your Vita wherever you are in the world with an internet connection. The Vita is an absolutely wonderful system that Sony just forgot about.
lnsflare1 (1 year ago)
SonicSpeed Persona 4 Golden, Darkest Dungeon, Disgaea 3-4, Trails of Cold Steel 1-2, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, Final Fantasy X/X2, Tales of Hearts R, World of Final Fantasy, Odin Sphere Liefthrasir, Muramasa Rebirth (with Genroku Legends DLC), Dragon's Crown, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Demon Gaze, Bastion, X-Com: Enemy Unknown Plus, a veritable bucket of Atelier games, Child of Light, Dungeon Travelers 2, Grand Kingdom,Oreshika: Trained Bloodlines, Rollers of the Realm, Ys: Memories of Celceta, the digital PSP/PS1 catalog, etc... don't do it for you?

Toru 02 That's a Visual Novel, not an RPG.
DVGaming (1 year ago)
I think the legacy of the Vita will be that it was a hub for RPG and JRPG games, indie or not.
lnsflare1 (1 year ago)
DarkVengeance101 IMO, it is also the best handheld ever made for fighters, especially if you factor in digital backwards compatibility giving it large chunks of the PSP and PS1 fighter catalog.
