Hello, I'm a long time Nintendo gamer - ending at the NDS lite and my last Playstation device was the PS2. I'm a bit clueless as to what games are coming out for the Vita which is what's holding me back from buying it.

The games I'm really interested at right now are Dragon's Crown, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Picotto Knights, Little King's Story. I think almost all of them will come out in 2013 which is sad. Ranting is not the point of this thread so...what big high quality titles can I expect for the Vita? Is there a chance that Dead or Alive 5, Tekken, Soul calibur will come out?. I'm mainly aiming for games that's morethan 20 hours of gameplay and or has a good amount of replay value. I know that we are all still wondering about upcoming games, but I'm hoping that there will be games that's on the PSP and will have a sequel for the Vita. Problem is, I only played 2 games for like 30minutes each on my friend's PSP(monster hunter and metal gear) and the rest I dont know.

I really, REALLY do not give a **** about modern FPS/TPS(except metal gear) games unless I'm playing as a girl in school uniform with thigh high socks and high heels in third person.

----------------------------------------------------

Games/genre I'm not interested at:

Uncharted

Little big planet

Racing games

Sports games except the Hotshot golf thingy and the Fish on next.

==================

Games/genre I like:

JRPG

Fighting games except mortal combat and marvel vs capcom.

Multiplayer games but it depends on what kind.

TLDR: What big high quality 20 hours+/good replay value Vita titles can I expect. Thank you!

Hello, have you met Kat?

Okay, she doesn't wear heels with this outfit, but there are other costumes for that. But seriously, the game (Gravity Rush) is amazing and I think it'd be right up your alley - though it's a tad shorter than 20 hours. I put the game down at I think the 18 hour mark.

For fighting games there's Street Fighter x Tekken coming this year, and there's also BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend which is already out. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R comes out next year for the Vita. DOA, Tekken, and SC don't have anything announced for the Vita, but they might down the road.

On the JRPG front, there's Persona 4 Golden - which even if you played the PS2 version is worth checking out for all of the added content and enhancements. There's also Ragnarok Odyssey, which is the same style of game as Monster Hunter. God Eater 2 is another MH-like coming out next year (no localization announced yet, but the Vita is region-free), except it's much faster-paced. Soul Sacrifice is also 2013. There's Ys: Celceta, Sea of Trees, another game with no localization announced yet, but highly likely to come over. Already released, there's Disgaea 3, a port of the PS3 game with all DLC included.

For multiplayer, I've already mentioned a few - Street Fighter x Tekken, BlazBlue, Guilty Gear, Ragnarok Odyssey, God Eater 2, and Soul Sacrifice. There's also Hot Shots Golf which you've brought up yourself, but most other MP titles fall under racing/shooting/LBP.

I don't know how you feel about rhythm games, but I think you might like Project Diva f and DJMAX Technika Tune. Also, if I'm reading right, you never owned a PSP? Because if that's the case there are a ton more games you can get for the Vita. The PSP was a JRPG goldmine, and PSP titles look and play best on the Vita.

@slashkice I would recommend UMvC3 and MK over all other fighters for Vita. SFxT is still beyond broken, and Blazblue gets too many iterations for my liking.

Yeah, but those are the two fighters the OP ruled out. :p Though I do think MK is worth it since all of the content, especially the tower stuff, lends itself to handhelds very well.

SFxT I just mentioned since the OP brought up Tekken, and BlazBlue does have several releases, but it's a quality fighting game, and a quality port from what I've heard.

With Blazblue, I just don't feel the value is there when another one is already announced for consoles, and likely making its way to PSV.

You should try little big planet, ratchet& clank, or ragonork odyssey. Just look up vita game videos on YouTube and see if there is anything you like. Also don't forget you can download many psp games on the store. Since you haven't owned a psp before there are some good games you can find for $10 and under (like Megaman x).

I've read everything here, Gravity rush looks really good, the fighting games are okay as long as there will be online play, Ragnarok odyssey I'll probably just wait for some reviews because the game doesn't feel like the way it should be, god eater and soul sacrifice looks interesting and lastly project diva and djmax is fine i guess, but I use my pc for rhythm games. There isn't really enough games that will excite me more so I'll have to think about it with my tight budget before jumping in the Playstation bandwagon.

I highly appreciate the recommendations, so thanks to everyone.

EDIT: I just found out about the 250$ bundles that's coming, are they worth the price? Oh and I'm aiming for the assassins creed bundle one because sports and FPS doesnt appeal to me that much. @Slashkice who is the girl in your banner?

Every fighting game on the Vita has online play so no need to worry there. If you're interested in AC3: Liberation, then yeah, it's a good deal. Comes with a memory card too if I'm not mistaken, which is a bit small, but it'll get you started.

The girl in my sig is Hitagi Senjougahara from Bakemonogatari.

You should check out New Little Kings Story. The originally on Wii was one of the most overlooked gems this generation of consoles, and with a new/deeper story, more content, and better controls, it looks to top the original!

Persona 4 the golden comes out november 20th and assassins creed lady liberty (thats the japenese name and kicks the crap out of its generic us title) comes out november first I believe. The MGS collection and Gravity rush you can get 20 hours out of both and if you like puzzle games enough same with Lumines. Also Persona 3 portable is a psp game and you can download it to Vita along with all the old Final Fantasy PS1 titles

Frankly, the PS Vita is not for you, at least not at this time. No hard feelings. Possibly a year from now when more titles have been released you may want to think about investing the $200+ for it. From what you have described as far as your game preferences you're better off finding a 3DS.
