25. Plants vs Zombies
24. Luftrausers
23. Escape Plan
22. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
21. Velocity Ultra (remaster)
20. Tearaway
19. Lumines Electronic Symphony

16. LittleBigPlanet Vita
15. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

Alright, alright, time for the Vita hate. But I will say two things: 1. soul sacrifice and gravity rush should've been on here (both Vita exclusives). Maybe even Ys: Memories of Celceta too (exclusive) 2. Even though there's a ton of indies/multiplats, they're really awesome on Vita. I don't think I would've enjoyed them as much elsewhere. Overall, this list was meh.

*Come to think of it, FFX-HD should be on there too..

Your thoughts, SW?

Don't be ridiculous - Vita hasn't released 25 games this year.

:P

A few really good titles are definitely missing from the list. It's their opinion though.

Lolvita

Has the Vita even got 25 games?

#7 Posted by charizard1605 (60999 posts) -

They got #1 right, that's literally all I care about.

#8 Posted by Slashkice (13609 posts) -

Not the list I would've made, but those are some good games (well, aside from maybe Escape Plan). I would've included Gravity Rush, Technika Tune, Project Diva f, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Wipeout 2048, Hot Shots Golf, Ys, and Final Fantasy if it were me though.

Super Stardust Delta isn't a remaster by the way.

So, what's your number 1?

Answer carefully and after much thought >.>

The Last of Us: Remastered over remote play.

P4G. That game was already Top 3 GOAT material for me when it came out in '08. :p

Vita has 25 games? I thought all it had was tumbleweeds.

#12 Posted by charizard1605 (60999 posts) -

@Slashkice: Excellent. Most excellent.

I really should play TLOU:R, but now I am holding off because of a bet I have with @Basinboy

#13 Posted by General_Solo76 (272 posts) -

Alot of those are ports or remastered games, there's only a couple true exclusives there that I'd say were worthy purchases. It's no wonder the Vita has failed so miserably!

#14 Posted by yokofox33 (30285 posts) -

Persona 4 is obviously the best ever. Surprised Toukiden isn't on there though.

#15 Posted by TheEroica (14411 posts) -

Uncharted at 3 is a joke. Good game in certain respects. Im not hating, but no. not that high. Glad Rogue Legacy got some love.

#16 Posted by Blabadon (28258 posts) -

Shitty list. Genres aren't respected and between the disgusting hyperbole and drivel, you can see how it feels like the people haven't played some of them.

Awful.

#17 Posted by mems_1224 (48409 posts) -

so basically 20 ports?

#18 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (6017 posts) -

Wipeout 2048 a true exclusive should be on that list, also gravity rush. I'm sure if I made my own top 25 list I would leave out a lot of games people liked, so yeah no list is ever going to be perfect.

#19 Posted by Ghost120x (4147 posts) -

Where's gravity rush?

Shame on them.

No. Of course not. None of the games on that list actually exist.

#21 Posted by commonfate (12744 posts) -

Odd that they included remasters but not FFX/MGS2/MGS3

I can't handle this. I can't even

props for the nod to Virtue's Last Reward

#22 Posted by bulby_g (1446 posts) -

I really want to buy a Vita but they just aren't giving me enough reasons too. Such a shame. I'd even consider picking one up for remote play if and when I get a PS4 but it sounds like that's broken anyway...

#23 Posted by Malta_1980 (11483 posts) -

as TC pointed out, there are a few great titles missing.. but I guess it comes down to personal taste..

it's a good system depending on your tastes. you'll notice that the core vita fans are pretty passionate about it

#25 Posted by Jshoelace (453 posts) -

Not a bad list but defo needs gravity rush in there. I love my lolvita, been playing it more than my pc lately, expecially with the release of velocity 2x

velocity 2x is a beast

@commonfate: I think they included it because it was on past lists, not because they've played it.
