Ten PlayStation Vita games that already make the console worthwhile
Before we even look at that, though, consider the line-up of games already on the Vita – it’s amazing, and definitely a case of quality over quantity. I’m not even talking about Uncharted, although that is a decent enough game. The real gems on the Vita are games like Gravity Rush, Sound Shapes (a game better suited for the handheld than the home console), Disgaea 3 and Dynasty Warriors Next (the first Warriors game of real A-grade quality on a handheld). There’s an excellent port of Rayman, and Lumines remains reliable fun. There’s a superb backlog of PSP games and, soon, PSOne classics… Even despite apparently having “no games,” I can genuinely say that the Vita is one of, if not my most played console in recent months.
Many would scoff at the mere idea that we could make a “top 10” of Vita games, and not be including throwaway stuff like Treasures of Montezuma Blitz… but indeed it’s possible. In fact, in this list of 10 games that have had me glued to my Vita, I bet I’ve left off a few favourites of other people (in fact, I’ve left off some of my own, like Lumines and Metal Gear Solid).
