    Yeah, as american, playing a import with no english translation is not something most people do for a role playing game, perhaps for other games like a fighting game or something more basic, but a full scale rpg is not advised without translation due to "needing to read text to know what to do" :unsure:

    But yes, that game i was waiting for english localization which is why i bought a vita for, but never got. Instead i got a few ports, like ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 and exclusives like ys memories of celcita and tales of heart R, other than that is just ports of ps3/ps4 games, and indie games with SOME good exclusive games.:whip:

    3DS had mostly exclusive games that wasn't all ports, which is just good, and the port of games was GOOD games to begin with and had time and good reason to be port like donkey kong country returns and smash bros.:yay3ds:

    Then again japan always get more games than any other country does, so i'm not surprised this would happen to me. Nice finger there sega, i don't like it but i can see what you did there to us USA people. :creep: *SARCASM*

    there is no competition between the 3ds and the vita in exclusives, the 3ds has so manny exclusives that arent on other systems that it isnt even fare to compare lol.

    Yes, that is basically the good thing about nintendo systems. :)

    Is always been the case, exclusive game sell the systems, that hasn't changed. I just wish that sony realized that, most of what vita has been was ports rather than exclusive games. Even though the exclusives are good, not most of them are. So far is been these two things
    • People who been buying 3ds wanted exclusive new games to play
    • People who been buying vita wanted to play their console counter parts on the go
    Not that is a fact what people buy them for, but is a observation based on the games released for the two systems. Sony to market "Cross-Buy".... rather poorly due to some most games existing on vita and ps3/ps4 and not being cross buy like skull girls, marvel vs capcom 3, FINAL FANTASY X HD collection, and lot more. Sony marketing has failed a lot for vita, more likely in favor of ps4.

    But I liked @Chary's review of the device, just wishing she could that on the Wii U as well.

    Well yeah, it has like 20 good games but I love Wii U's two screen and Amiibo gimmick..

    They didn't make it easy to find an RPG that wasn't borderline hentai, but I found Adventures of Mana which is looking alright. Great page, I'll keep an eye on this page for other games in the future.

    Wait, best indies and there isn't Super Meat Boy?
    This is the best indie of all time.

    Fez also deserve a place on that list

    Aw, Severed isn't on the indie list? Salad mix would have to suffice. Still, great article for a rather unappreciated handheld.

    True, but all the ones on the lists are/were available in the US.

    I love my Vita, even if it came to me with a firmware too late to hack. I've got enough psn games to more than fill my 64gb memory card.

    Really wish Sony had pulled their heads out of their backsides when it came to designing and marketing the Vita. Sad waste of potential. Had they made the memory either more affordable or used a standard micro SD it might have gone a long way toward getting more customers. Add to that the almost non-existant marketing and the Vita wasn't even given a chance to succeed.

    I agree. I don't even mind the proprietary memory cards that much, but it makes no sense why they still cost as much as they do considering sony stopped caring about the ps vita a long time ago. If it supported microsd i would have bought a 256gb sd card for the ps vita.

    Are there enough good racing games to justify a category?

    Vita has a good share of fighting games, I think a top 10 can be added.

    Awesome article BTW

    A lot of solid games on this list that I wouldn't have known were on Vita otherwise. Other than the few first-party games, though, all the good ones are available on Steam. Would be nice to have Salt and Sanctuary on a portable, but if we get the Dark Souls games on Switch that'd be even better.

    But we can play the only Pokemon games that mattered on the Vita with VHBL, and then even if your on the newest firmware...I think? At least if you're on all the way up to 3.63 you can play RED, Yellow, and Blue. When Poke got past those it was a monotonous bore for me, though I hear they made a remake of the original for GBA? VHBL can easily run GBA. And cant forget pokemon pinball, thats a classic!
