    I havent seen any "Essential" game thread here.
    just ordered my PS Vita from Japan and was wondering what games I should get :D

    32GB memory card is good enough? I dont download digital copies of games, so its mostly for saves and DLC.

    There isn't an essential gaem thread cuz Vita has no gaems.

    there might no be many vita games
    but there are many ps1 and PSP that are very good and work on the vita

    so
    what kind of game
    RPG
    action
    fighting
    Puzzle

    if you are not going to get digital copies 32gb is fine
    you might need to get digital copies at some point as many game might not come out as retail copies
    and is can be easir to get as digital copies are "always" there retail copies might not be at the store you go to

    RPG, Action, Adventure
    no puzzles please, just no :P

    and I do online shopping mainly, so not gonna have an issue finding retail copies. UNLESS that game is only digitally available.
    What are the sizes like for vita games? 2-4 gigabytes?

    The Danger Zone
    Persona 4 Golden most defs.

    I heard Soul Sacrifice is pretty good but I can't personally attest to it.

    I think Killzone: Mercenary has a pretty good online. I've never really played FPS, but I enjoy this one. I equally enjoy the online for PSASBR, though there are some glitches and stuff.

    +1 for Persona 4 Golden

    Soul Sacrifice is pretty much just a dungeon crawler. So if you're looking for story or anything, you won't find it here, but it has pretty solid gameplay.

    Gravity Rush is fun. It takes some time to get used to the controls, but they can be pretty exhilarating. I think this game is a hit or miss with people, though I'm excited for the sequel.

    Persona 4 Golden. That is all.
    Soul Sacrifice is another good addition!
    Virtue's Last Reward if you're into visual novels.
    Disgaea 3 if you like SRPGs.
    LittleBigPlanet if you've enjoyed the series on PS3.
    And finally, PS+.

    Persona 4 Golden
    Disgaea 3 (Disgaea 4 if and when it comes to the west some time in 2014)
    Spelunky, (roguelike platformer) is a nice game to play it different EACH time

    if you are thinking about ragnarok odyssey
    do NOT get it
    Ragnarok odyssey Ace will be coming out (it an updated version of the game)

    also
    soul sacrifice is getting a newer version, soul sacrifice delta, same game but update with many new things

    Also, the Little Big Planet, is it a completely new one, or the same one as the PS3 just for PSV?

    It's a new game with everything from LBP2. (Well, not everything since it's missing a few packs from the PS3 games, like the MGS pack for example)

    kind of a late reply but, Soul Sacrifice is 1.85gb, Virtues Last Reward is 1.26gb, Gravity Rush is 1.4gb
    I don't think it was suggested but i've thoroughly enjoyed Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, and it's 2.14gb. Ditto for this, Muramasa Rebirth is 453mb, also really fun.

    Basically most don't break 2.5gb. I think the biggest I have is Ninja Gaiden.

    Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is supposed to be out in Early 2014 for Vita. Although you can play the fan translated PSP version already.

    Whoever says Vita has no game clearly has no hands on experience with Vita.
