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

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.

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 >.>

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

@Slashkice: Excellent. Most excellent.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Shame on them.

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

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

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...

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

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

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