That was a great. Being an advid gamer, some of these games just made me shiver with reflection of a beautiful time of my gaming career. y's is a series that is sadly unheard of in America till the 8th chapter came in. Sigh....any way, many thanks for all memories. You one yourself a fan this day. Keep me up to date. Thank you.

3-4 games out of 15 is jrpgs, all others are not even close to it. JRPG=/= RPG made is Japan and especially hack and slash games are definitely not an JRPGs. JRPG is turn based combat. Garbage top.

Whats with games being so overpriced....JESUS! Shiren the wanderer is like 40$ for an RPG-maker like game. Something that would be 20$ on Steam is now 40$ on PSN. And a lot of games are near to full price.

a lot of games on this list are not true rgps like dragons crown, muramasa, odinsphere, soul sacrifice, Ys8 memories of Celceta , these are hack and slash games with some rpg elements just like a lot of first person shooters have a lot of weapom customization and class selection doesnt make them rpgs they are shooters with customization. let's please try to keep the genre consistent.

I think Freedom Wars is the best one out of all butt if they make a Freedom Wars 2 for PS Vita they should make an open world like toukiden 2 and this time some vehicle combat and we can send an airstrike on The Munsters
MrCool (1 year ago)
okay cool Freedom Wars was a runner-up
MrCool (1 year ago)
she better say Freedom Wars from number 1
EonHSD (1 year ago)
lytiffrger2468 Persona 4 Golden is basically No.1 in all these lists.
Tommaso Sirigu (1 year ago)
hmmm...maybe i'll give *Gravity Rush* another Chance. The Demo didn't made a big impact on me. Mostly because of the Combat system, but I do like the Art style very much.

Sadly, God Eater Resurrection doesn't have a PlayScore yet on PS Vita. We hope it'll received enough Critic reviews for us to know it's PlayScore.
Kestrel Ky (1 year ago)
I love sword art online lost song and hyperdimension neptunia rebirth 2 sisters. Such underrated games really. Also on a side note Digimon is superior to Pokemon, but the true king of monsters is Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne the character models, skills, and demon deity lores are unmatched.
Krescil (1 year ago)
Falcom is the developer for Trails, not XSeed. XSeed is just the publisher.

Oops! Sorry about that. You're right! Nihon Falcom Corporation is the developer of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.

The PS Vita needs its own Kingdom Hearts game. And release a remake of the Onimusha trilogy while you're at it ^^
Vaibhav Shah (1 year ago)
Shame that developers do not give a shit :( Its so sad. Sony should at least ask Squenix to make a port of an existing game.
Smoke Gaming Channel (1 year ago)
Lion Entity ikr they should have release ps2 ports at the start then fucming use those sales in vita exclusives persona 4 sold well on the vita :( why they didnt port ps2 hd remasters
Zloy_dedulya (2 years ago)
Somehow I didn't doubt that P4G will be number 1 :) But I think that Trails of Cold Steel must be at least on 5th place. Don't get me wrong, almost all games on this list are AWSOME, but Trails of Cold Steel is just sooooooooo good.
Jon Idoncair (2 years ago)
whatttoplay girl is very fun to listen to, she just sells the script of this video so well no surprised for #1 naturally lol
Orpheus 010 (2 years ago)
would have preferred Persona 3 remake. It had better characters and story. Also the final boss is way more threatening and poses more of a threat. for P4, just move towns and you'll be fine.
Orpheus 010 (2 years ago)
soul sacrifice delta is probably the best vita game if you don't include remakes like MGS HD collection and NINJA gaiden games. it's only 18 dollars on psn last I checked!
Cid333 (2 years ago)

I may have asked one of these before, but can you give me the Playscores for Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme V.S. Force for PlayStation Vita and Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn for PS3?
Cr33p3rKid (2 years ago)

You're welcome.

Gravity Rush is not a JRPG.
Heiko Berlitz (1 year ago)
RPG is a term often used loosely. A lot of rpgs aren’t traditional turn based but idk meh.
Blue (1 year ago)
Just saw this, and a lot of these games aren't. They have JRPG/RPG elements, but aren't true JRPGs
b0rd2dEAth (1 year ago)
Meh, it kinda is (although not a traditional). I think most people consider Gravity Rush 2 on the PS4 a JRPG.
vagrantxii (1 year ago)
I exactly thought the same.
JakRizen2 (2 years ago)
Gravity Rush is not a JRPG. It's an action game. Why do both of your handheld lists include games that are not in the genre you are talking about? It's not hard to figure out what qualifies as a JRPG and what doesn't. Great list beyond that, but please do not include games of the wrong genre, it's far too odd.
Brian Worden (1 year ago)
Ficki Bicki Yep, Gravity Rush is definitely not a game I would not recommend if the person was looking for a new JRPG to play.
Ficki Bicki (1 year ago)
Retrosexual Umm I'm pretty sure they do care. A lot of people who look at these lists are looking for new games to buy. If they were looking for jrpgs, you wouldn't recommend Gravity Rush to them
Retrosexual (1 year ago)
No one cares what you consider a JRPG, nor will anyone change their list to accommodate one smelly cat turd in the comments section. Youtube, please do not include people of the wrong IQ, it's far too odd.
fruitsoffunny (1 year ago)

Don't think anything will ever beat Persona 4 on the Vita, especially since Persona 5 will only come out on the main consoles.
Franchii28 (2 years ago)
PERSONAAAAAAAA!!!!! I LOVE THAT GAME SO MUCH! when I first bought the game I just thought it was just a regular jrpg game but nope I was wrong ITS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES I'VE EVER PLAYED!!! and I'm already waiting for Persona 5 to come out already since its already out in Japan X3

NexusRider161 (2 years ago)
FACK YES FREEDOM WARS! So sad that the game is underrated. The fact that few people pick it up citing 'incomplete story' guarantees that the story will NEVER be resolved because the developers won't bother making a sequel because the game doesn't sell well... it's a vicious cycle. Fingers crossed that they'll prove me wrong and soldier on to make FW2 anyways!
Powered By Rice (2 years ago)

Trickster (2 years ago)
Persoan 4 Golden is more than a game to me. It will always be the best game I've played unless Persona 5 does it again, which I think it will due to its more relevant theme for me.
Trickster (1 year ago)
I already have, P3 FES, didn't like it as much. I'm gonna try the other games in SMT instead through emulation.
Joshua Isanan (1 year ago)
Nice, you should give persona 3 a try though, i'm playing it right now.
Trickster (1 year ago)
I also finished P5, this is my new favourite! Maybe because I have played P4G too many times :/ I'm playing it right now! :p I gave my copy of P5 to my bro, won't get it back until May 29 :'(
Joshua Isanan (1 year ago)
Finished P5, still persona 4 for me :( because of the feels
lnsflare1 (2 years ago)
+Shadow Slayer Personally, I tend to prefer games on the Vita over my PS4 since I do a lot of commuting and it tends to be $20.00 cheaper brand new. Not to mention that several of those games are Cross Buy, so I got the PS4 version as well.
Reverse Orca E46 (2 years ago)
Awesome list, I would have added Child of Light to the list. I love that game.
whatoplay (2 years ago)
Child of Light sure is one of the great PS Vita games, currently has a PlayScore of *8.57*. It's not JRPG though to be on the list.
lnsflare1 (2 years ago)
Technically, it's a turn-based WRPG, like Darkest Dungeon.
Esteban Yañez (2 years ago)
And God Eater Resurrection & God Eater 2 Rage Burst???

Im a year late to reply but ... it kinda is a JRPG dho, the "J" means Japanese, the the "G" means Game and you are Playing the Role or kat so "RP"
Brian Worden (1 year ago)
ICreatePaperGames Nope, it is an action adventure game that has RPG elements. A game having RPG elements in it don't automatically make it an RPG.
I bet World of Final Fantasy will be good...I'm still wondering if a Kingdom Hearts game will ever be released on the PS Vita (if it isn't discontinued).
Smoke Gaming Channel (1 year ago)
Gustavo Barría Chavarría i know right its too late idk but i can play kh 1 and 2 on my pc anyday. but i want a vita KH :( they abandon this underrated system
Kelly Davis (2 years ago)
I hope they do but I doubt it :( Birth By Sleep is still my favorite one in the series.
Oh okay then! ;) I was just hoping that maybe someday a Kingdom Hearts game would be released on the Vita, if it isn't discontinued first, or they could do that for the successor of the Vita (if Sony ever does that, and doesn't decide to abandon the handheld gaming!).
Kelly Davis (2 years ago)
Yes, World of Final Fantasy will be 100% with an English version, I thought you were talking about Kingdom Hearts 3, I can assure you that won't be on Vita.
...yes it will! It says so on the trailers and the web site (or at least in Japan, because you know...they are the only ones who care for the Vita!)
