Before the Switch, the PS Vita could be called the most potent actual handheld, the power of the PS Vita eventually became a field for developers to re-release the game from various platforms to Vita. Unfortunately for some specific reasons such as only famous in Japan and dominated by JRPG games and light novels, Vita is less popular with rival consoles and handhelds. Although less popular, Vita has some fantastic sets that are designed to be comfortable to play for Vita, here is the list.
1. Killzone Mercenary
FPS is generally not designed to be played on a handheld because of its control and hardware limitations. Still, Killzone Mercenary proves that FPS can be played comfortably on a handheld. Built with the same engine as Killzone 3, Mercenary looks very beautiful and amazing. The combat system uses all the advantages of Vita (touchscreen + gamepad) with a playstyle that you can set yourself, either stealthy or going Rambo will not have extraordinary consequences, this is the FPS experience that should be on a handheld.
2. Yomawari series
Yomawari is a unique horror game that focuses on exploration and problem-solving. The graphics are made simple with a creepy art style, and for sound matters, Yomawari handles it very well. The low level with the combination of instant death is the right combination for a horror game that can be played on the go.
3. Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Want to be able to play cinematic action class ‘Uncharted’ anywhere and anytime? Well, you can now play it on PS Vita through Golden Abyss. This game is a prequel from the original Uncharted series, although it is a prequel, non-stop action from Nathan Drake you can still feel thoroughly in this game. Amazingly, Golden Abyss also utilizes a touchscreen system to do things like do takedown and climb.
4. Gravity Rush
Gravity Rush is a game with a fresh open-world concept in this one deduction, and Gravity Rush tells the adventure of a gravity-manipulating girl named Kat who explores the world of ‘World Pillar’ to cure her amnesia. As the name suggests, you have complete control over gravity so that you can tackle the World Pillar vertically or horizontally very quickly (and defiantly), the gravity-based combat system is also no less impressive. This game will initially be released for PS3. Still, considering that the PS Vita has the ability to gyroscope and touchscreen, which will significantly assist in controlling gravity, the developer finally released Gravity Rush on Vita.
5. Persona 4 Golden
The number of quality JRPGs on PS Vita makes it difficult for gamers to decide which one to play, but if speaking the best, then Persona 4 Golden is the answer. Golden is an upgraded version of the PS2 version with improved graphics and additional features such as a new cutscene, new quests, and the ability to garden and catch insects. The gameplay itself doesn’t change much, but with additional features, it certainly enriches your experience in the game.
If the PS console has Little Big Planet and Nintendo has Mario, then Vita has Tearaway, a 3D adventure game with advantages in terms of control. For those who don’t know, Vita has four types of controls namely touchscreen, gamepad, touchpad on the back, and gyroscope; Tearaway is a game that utilizes all Vita control methods and implements them well in its gameplay, for example, the touchscreen is used to rotate the platform. The touchpad can be used to set how high we jump; this is a game innovation that should be in terms of control that should be implemented to consoles that are given advantages over handhelds.
7. Soul Sacrifice
One more RPG game title that makes PS Vita worth buying, this game is an RPG game that focuses on combat and grinding, in a perfect sense. This game tells of someone who suddenly became a talented wizard after reading a book called Librom, after mastering a fair amount of science this man tried to find a way out of the damned place. What distinguishes Soul Sacrifice from other RPG games is that there is a choice system in the core gameplay after you kill an enemy you can destroy his soul or ‘save’ him, of course, your actions will have a significant impact on your progress in the future, and as a grinding game, partly Large quests can last for 7-10 hours, long enough even for standard consoles.
