Top PS Vita Games of All Time

The Vita has experienced a change in focus since it first launched back in 2012. First pitched as a portable with the power of a home console with the ability to carry blockbuster titles in your pocket, the Vita is now a home for PlayStation’s extensive library of indie titles.

Subscribers to PlayStation Plus have been spoiled with top quality free games every month, from Uncharted to Sly Cooper, Sony is almost making it hard for gamers to go out and buy Vita games thanks to the excellent freebies.

The portable also plays host to some of the best games from Japan. From Persona 4 Golden to Soul Sacrifice and BlazBlue, the Vita is an excellent console for Eastern gaming fans.

While the PS Vita may not be the console it initially set out to be, it is still an excellent portable that, thanks to PlayStation Plus, is a must-have with an incredible library that players can dive into for free.

From indies to triple-A, here is VideoGamer’s list of the very best Vita games of all time.
