If you're looking for a racing game Most Wanted is actually pretty damn good.

Persona 4 Golden, Disgaea 3, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Earth Defense 2017

Thanks for the suggestions. By the way, how is the Playstation Plus feature on the Vita? Is it worth the $50 a year? Is it good for all games or just certain ones?

Nobody has mentioned WipEout 2048 yet, so I'll throw that out there.

Right now you can pick up Uncharted and Gravity Rush right off the bat plus others, so you'll all ready be getting your money's worth. Assuming you also have a PS3 there's plenty of freebies on there that will sweeten the deal. I can't add what others have said as far as game recommendations except maybe Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, if you're at all into golf anyway. I've been addicted to and it has been admittedly most of what I've played on my Vita so far :lol: But Uncharted was great, and I rented LBP Vita and really need to buy it because it was amazing. PS All-Stars is decent too... and I've also played Resistance and Call of Duty, but those are rents at best in my opinion.

Lumines: Electronic Symphony is a magnificent block-based puzzler with a great electronic soundtrack. You're especially in for a treat if it's your first Lumines game. It's extremely involving, but never addictive. Strangely for a puzzle game, it seems to actually satisfy me. Don't prejudge it for being a puzzle game, either - this one's different. Rayman Origins is an excellent 2D platformer, one of the best in years. But you may prefer to play it on a console, and it's probably cheaper there.

LBP

Persona4

Uncharted

Gravity Rush

I really enjoy Hot Shots Golf, plus it has a great online multiplayer.

I'll mention some games that haven't been mentioned here yet.

PSN has some pretty decent downloadable titles: Super Stardust Delta, Escape Plan, Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, Dokuro, and Frobisher Says! are all worth checking out. (Some of them have demos also.)

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned PSASBR, though I don't own the game yet and can't vouch for how good it is compared to the beta.

Also, you might like Touch My Katamari. I still don't know how long the game is, but it doesn't seem too much different than the other ones, which have been mostly fun.

#15 Posted by logicalfrank (1641 posts) -

Definitely Little Big Planet, esp. for bang for your buck. There's lots of downloadable levels and games. Sound Shapes is the same way. You can't go wrong w/ either if you like platformers really.

I'd get Persona 4 and PSN+ then download uncharted, retro city, wipeout, and Gravity Rush

Right now I'm pretty sure you'd still get Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and Wipeout by subscribing. But if you want to play more than one of those at a time you'll need at least a 8-16GB card.
#18 Posted by lilnazar (1614 posts) -

Why didn't anybody mention PSASBR!? (oh wait, one person did)

OP, i would recommend PSASBR, got it 2 days ago. Really loving it so far. It's really fun. Don't listen to the reviews or nay sayers. I don't understand the low rating on this game. Sure it's a rip off Brawl, but it's still good.

More people need to try Virtue's Last reward.
#20 Posted by Rattlesnake_8 (18334 posts) -
Uncharted, Mortal Kombat, Gravity Rush.
#21 Posted by benleslie5 (7734 posts) -

All you need is Persona 4 Golden

#22 Posted by RollinKaos (69 posts) -
I liked Resistance Mutant Blobs Dungeon Hunter and Im currently playing Odd World Stranger which I am enjoying as well. PSN+ is definitely the way to go. I downloaded Gravity Rush but havent started playing that yet, enjoyed the demo though.
#23 Posted by optiplex7 (738 posts) -

PS Plus and a RPG like Persona or Disagea. Should have u covered and all genres then.

#24 Posted by Granpire (2749 posts) -
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is making me feel that PS+ was so worth it. :D
#25 Posted by lilnazar (1614 posts) -

I recommend one more game..

Persona 4 The Golden!! If you're an RPG fan, then this is a must. Myself thought, i'm not a RPG fan (yet). This is the first time trying an RPG on a console and i gotta' say it's awesome :D

#26 Posted by xGamePlayerx19 (378 posts) -

well there arent to many games to really pick from yet, but from the few there are, id recommend

>Persona 4 Golden

>Gravity Rush

their both REALLY enjoyable games i must admit, and if you playing ragnorak odyssey than i suggest looking out for Soul Sacrifice, as it looks very promising and has the similar gameplay to odyssey

Hate to say it, but you really need to have at least some basic japanese reading ability to get the most out of a Vita atm (luckily i do heh). There's some nice import games which are unlikely to be ported to NA/europe. The library of games available for sale NA atm is like less than half of that in japan.

If you can't read japanese, you can probably still play something like Project Diva f at least, which i highly recommend.

Absolutely no help + such a rude response to someone who just got a Vita. :P Don't listen to this person, there are plenty of amazing titles out right now and a ton to look forward to this year! Everyone else have already said the best of the best (Persona 4, LittleBigPlanet, Gravity Rush, etc) so I won't repeat that list, but I will suggest watching thissss.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghhlwGkz1C8 It's one guy's opinion of the top 10 Vita games of 2012 but I will say it helped me A LOT with picking out a lot of great titles. :) Happy gaming!

I love Lumines and LBP.
#31 Posted by Granpire (2749 posts) -
Lumines. That music. Getting a great play on a great song is an incredible feeling, like no other game.
#32 Posted by ChoboBot (3 posts) -
Little Big Planet is a must buy, if you're into fighters then Mortal Kombat, I would recommend P4:G, however I am still waiting for it to be released here in the EU.

I'd love to see some reviews of them.

I'm curious about Monster Monpiece and Demon Gaze, expecially.

#39 Posted by TwistedShade (3139 posts) -

Gravity Rush, LittleBigPlanet, PS4Golden, and MGS HD would be my top picks.

#40 Posted by Megavideogamer (5284 posts) -

The PSvita of Motal Kombat is great if you like Mortal Kombat. It is the Komplete version. Also Sly cooper Thieves in time is great as well.

#41 Posted by lild1425 (6757 posts) -

PS+ for a $50 value for a year (and the current promotion of 3 extra months) will give you Gravity Rush, Wipeout, Uncharted, and Ninja Gaiden and that's only now. All four are pretty high rated as well.

I like PS All Stars. Jetpack Joyride is free to download. It's pretty addicting.

#42 Posted by the_verybest (215 posts) -
As most have suggested, Gravity Rush and Persona 4 Golden. Both are excellent games.
