    Hey guys this forum doesn't have an essentials thread like all of the others so I decided to make one as I am getting asked more and more often recently what Vita games are the best!

    Nathan Drake Obligations fulfilled, now I depart.

    Jan 2, 2011
    Killzone Mercenary
    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
    Soul Sacrifice
    Uncharted: Golden Abyss
    Gravity Rush
    Spelunky (even if I am terrible at it)

    Once I play more games, I'll certainly be adding more. So far though, the only games I've played that I would consider bad would be a couple of the ones that came with my Vita when I got it from a local seller.

    Obligatory upvote for perennial Vita darling Persona 4 Golden. Also +1 for Dokuro and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Killzone Mercenary gets an upvote too.

    +1 for Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on the condition that there's a recommendation to play 999 first.

    Nominating/Adding: Spelunky [Action-Adventure?] - a great mix between a roguelike and a platformer/adventure game. I've never really been good at qualifying the difference between Adventure, Action-Adventure, and Platformer, personally, but you jump between and on things, climb ropes and ladders, avoid traps, and optionally shoot/bomb things.

    Please excuse the formatting and rambling, it's quarter after six in the morning and I haven't slept yet.

    I'm excited that ROM dumps have been happening lately, and the NAND has already been dumped from the Vita. This is very exciting news togo with your game list, so hopefully CFW and a ROM loader will show up soon. ^_^
