Awful list... clearly a clueless gamer made this.

Sorry but most of these games are fucking annoying, there is way too many JRPG's and platformers on every platform not every game should be a triple A fps but godfuckingdamn! also where the fuck is uncharted? Is that a bad game now? Like compared to the binding of literal shit I mean Isaac. Sometimes I think gaming is going backwards lol
Darx (2 years ago)

I like how this video embraces the Indie nature the Vita has grown to. I've been trying to talk myself into buying one... I really wanted Jak and Daxter on the Vita but it sounds like Sony messed that up too. I do like the Indie games though... I don't have a ps3 or a ps4. I want the Vita as a standalone portable gaming console....
Jason Jay (2 years ago)
perhaps the list should of been named differently maybe top 10 favorite vita games would of better represented what this list would be but yea that is just my opinion. Most of this list i wouldn't personally consider to be anywhere near the best games on the system interesting games for the system yes best not imo. At least it gives different suggestions to those looking for them to try out on the vita.

Hey is it possible to play Undertale on the PSVita???
Grant Williams (1 year ago)
Luciano Martinez I don't think so
Renegade Bastard (2 years ago)
When Sony stepped down and abandoned the Vita, the community stepped up. A special thanks to Limited Run Games and websites like The Vita Lounge.

is it possible to trade in assassin's creed 3 liberation for lego marvel's avengers for vita at gamestop
Fuwa Fuwa (2 years ago)
how do people find turn based RPGs fun? i just can't get into them. I really want to like persona but nope, turn based gameplay is a turn off for me.
Sam Henri (2 years ago)
It's analysing a battle situation, coming up with a custom strategy and then that "Fuck yeah!" feeling from watching your planning and preparation successfully crushing your opponents, or the unexpected "Oh shit!" moments when the enemy AI does something you didn't expect that brings you dangerously close to death, that make turn-based RPGs (like Dragon Quest) so fun!
Spiderfly (2 years ago)
I totally agree I just don't get it I can't get into them at all I find it very boring.

+theinstigatorr i know and i i hate pokemon games
theinstigatorr (2 years ago)
Pokemon is turn based
online 0227 (2 years ago)
for me, hatsunr Miku series, Freedom wars, Hero Must Die are top 3 vita game lol pretty sure Hero Must Die isn't released in NA tho.
Spiderfly (2 years ago)
Spelunky is my most played game on the vita! 100% it though and would love more Spelunky levels or a sequel?
Susano' o (2 years ago)
i would have added soul sacrifice delta and freedom wars

+bigwhiteshogun yup, i love my vita
calleha (2 years ago)
What's everyone's problem with this list? Personally, I think it's a great list of Vita games. Some JRPGs, some VNs, and some fantastic indies.
Jackson (2 years ago)
I like the video style, quick and concise without the common bullshit
Zoliea (2 years ago)
No mention of Little Big Planet for Vita? The Vita version was a real masterpiece that ran better and with more functionality than LBP2 on the ps3.
Bad Sector (2 years ago)
im looking to buy a game should i go for persona 4 golden or trails of cold steel?(never played neither)
Bad Sector (2 years ago)
thanks man
Nightfury oblivion (2 years ago)
Both are good games it's so hard to choose. :3 i went through Trails of Cold Steel, since it's also like a persona feel, with some "Tales of" feels. It has a sequel too that i'm waiting for
ItsMe Kirakie (2 years ago)
I think that they wanted to make people aware of other games aswell
Nope Noperson (2 years ago)
You completely neglected Uncharted, Freedom Wars, and Killzone. And half of these are multi platform indies. Then again, I've always known Kotaku to have the worst opinions on everything in gaming.
Manuel Newton ML (2 years ago)
+Paulo Cardoso - Haha, I thought you were referring to Minecraft, its story mode its garbage. Probably 3D Dot Heroes had more story than that. People got hyped with everything, from scannable toys, to technical demos for VR headsets.
Paulo Cardoso (2 years ago)
I agree with their choices (mostly). I don't see the criteria you're implying, because they featured exclusive, non-indie games too (Danganronpa, P4G). There seems to be a "problem" with current gamers mentality, that makes them believe that a 3D game is always a more respectable experience than an arcade/2D game. That's my only explanation for finding so many people online putting mediocre 3D games in front of brilliant, original and fun 2D indie experiences. Don't get me wrong: I like a good 3D open world experience as much as any other gamer. I like them when they're actually GOOD games. I just find mind boggling why so many people instantly dismiss brilliant 2D (or retro looking) titles released on Vita, and at the same time get hyped for any piece of trash with 3D polygons... it is a really disappointing thing to watch for someone who grew up in the golden age of gaming (the 90s, that is). For reference, I played all three games you mentioned. None of them are worth more than a B/80 in my opinion, and I know I'm not alone on this. Agree to disagree, because taste is subjective, just don't think you're mentioning universal acclaimed games that were omitted by a utterly unfair magazine; it's not like Persona 4 Golden was omitted, if you know what i mean... ;)
Manuel Newton ML (2 years ago)
I agree with you. It's like Kotaku saying all PS1 2D titles were the best in the system (comparing them with indies, but not saying there weren't 2D masterpieces) and 3D games like GT, MGS, FF7, RE and so on were like "MEH !!, they're just 3D but no story or deep gameplay". Thank God Kotaku's word in gaming review industry have no good value for most of us, real gamers. If it were, just imagine how big controversy could cause. :(
Peahnuts (2 years ago)
some really lengthy, deep, and well presented JRPGs that should have been on this list instead of some of the indie games. i LOVE hotline miami, but i'd there are so many more games that give you more hours of enjoyable gameplay for your $$.
jokejoke (2 years ago)
all these games seems to be shitty third party games.

This list was beautiful and no kill zone and freedom wars exc. witch are great games but I speak for a lot of people who don't want to see every video with the exact same games

jokejoke (2 years ago)
While I can understand that they're trying to promote "less known" third party games, I feel like they're actually more or less shit and shouldn't be in this list at all.

Eric Payne (2 years ago)
Ive yet to get a Vita but ive been wanting to get one for awhile. I would definitely get all these when i finally get the extra money to get the Vita
NueThunderKing (2 years ago)
+Eric Payne (s7121n9s) it is, don't listen to the other guy. Even though it has few exclusives, the portability of many indie and not indie games makes it worth while. Plus all those PS One games that are cherry on top.
Eric Payne (2 years ago)
+Christian Sims whys that?
Kujo. (2 years ago)
it's not worth it
Azodnem Kram (2 years ago)
The vita is so cheap now. Maybe I should get a second one and play games from both the jp and us ps store whenever I want. x)
Azodnem Kram (2 years ago)
Dude, that's awesome! I got mine a year ago for $260 including 6 games, the vita 1000, charger, and an 8 gb card and I've been loving the vita and all the great games it has to offer. I eventually got a 16 gb card and ps plus a few months later and it's been enough space for me. I'm still planning on getting a 64 gb sometime
Jolly (2 years ago)
+Azodnem Kram You got that right. Buying used gives insane value. I just bought a vita oled yesterday off craigslist. $150 for the system, a 16 gig memory card, 8gb memory card, case, speakers, official headset, charging dock, and two games persona 4 golden and borderlands 2.
MtMarshi (2 years ago)
I think it speaks volumes that I own every single one of these games.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss is Vita's no.1!
Travis Schpeltinger (2 years ago)
The usual suspects...Fucking cancer of gaming...
ilikebacon247 (2 years ago)
+Travis Schpeltinger There are some games that I wasn't surprised to see here, but also some that I haven't seen before. At least kotaku was willing to mention the system. that's more than Sony did in the last 4 years.

Killzone, Freedom Wars,
iamtheju (2 years ago)
I've only played Tearaway and Gravity Rush of the games on this list and they were terrible. Excluding Hotline Miami this looks more like a list of least interesting Vita games. I love Vita and I worry that people reading this list now will not buy one.
Some Loser (2 years ago)
+iamtheju I only recommend those two for the story.
hinatalovetonaruto (2 years ago)
+iamtheju your just not into visual novel games and thats ok. i am not into them either
iamtheju (2 years ago)
+I hate my life Kappa Zero Escape looks like a cheap PC puzzle game from the 00's. and Danganronpa looks like there is even less gameplay.
hinatalovetonaruto (2 years ago)
+iamtheju well I love gravity rush and it pissed me of that gravity rush 2 only coming to ps4..... I never finished ffx-2 it got me bored halfway

Horribad Gamer (2 years ago)
Why are Killzone and Freedom Wars not on the list? Both games are even still quite active in multiplayer!
shadowmaksim (2 years ago)
Let's see, of the games listed, I've gotten: "Tearaway" - It's interesting to say the least. Wasn't really find it too interesting until somewhere in the middle though. "Gravity Rush" -It's definitely interesting, screwing around with the gravity mechanic is fun but it shows that it was a launch title for the Vita, along with being the first entry to something. It's unpolished in many areas and the story kind of just ends, hooking in for a sequel that is fairly overdue at this point. And that's it. Don't really have much interest for the rest. And the two that I have played, I thought were closer to average than anything great. At least there was something in this list that I have played, that's a step up I guess.

hinatalovetonaruto (2 years ago)
+ValenteFV there a quite a few ps1 games u can play on vita
Anthony Campos (2 years ago)
Regardless of how you feel about the Vita, Killzone should have at least made it on this list.
NueThunderKing (2 years ago)
+OldAccount it's the perfect portable fps. It should be on the list.

killzone easy choice for this list

GameSnippets_Jimmy (2 years ago)
Really really loved Tearaway, it really is unique, even beside the cool controls (it uses everything the vitas got) it's a nice game with nice design. Sound shapes is also worth a mention, it's one of those games you can play in bursts which is handy and it has a cool soundtrack

persona 4 ?? killzone ?? uncharted ???
Josh'sCircle (2 years ago)
+cavemancolton Well who's to say someone doesn't like any of those games? These are what we call opinions, and I for one can believe someone genuinely thinks that killzone will and won't be in the top 12.
cavemancolton (2 years ago)
+MrJoshura Regardless of how you feel about Killzone and Uncharted, I can't imagine that someone genuinely thinks there aren't at least 12 games on the Vita better than those. I can think of many Vita games better than Killzone and Uncharted that didn't even make this list. Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, Axiom Verge, Trails in the Sky, Rogue Legacy, Olli Olli 2, Muramasa Rebirth, etc. The list goes on for awhile before it gets to Killzone and Uncharted.
