5. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
I know this game was just an HD remake of MGS 2 and 3, but they were extremely well done. Some may say that this is the ideal way to play these games, even more than the PS3 version. The visuals have never been better, thanks to the smaller, crisper screen, and it was just a joy to back and experience two of the best PS2 games ever. If thats not enough for you, I don't know what is.
4. Gravity Rush
Gravity Rush was one of those games I discussed in my top 5 soundtracks category, but the actual gameplay itself was pretty favorable as well as the wonderful music. The game didn't sell all that great, and we might not see another game with Kat in it, besides Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, and thats just a shame. If you've never played the game before, I suggest you at least give it a try.
3. Rayman Origins
How could anyone forget about the lovable Rayman, Origins was a terrific game from start to finish. It brought a lot of new elements never before seen in a Rayman game before, but it still felt nostalgic in the end. This may have been the most visually impressive title on the Vita, Rayman has never looked so good. It was pretty easy to place this one at my number 3 spot.
2. Uncharted Golden Abyss
Uncharted Golden Abyss wasn't the same as it's console brother, but it was a damn good game. It was longer than Uncharted 3, but it didn't have bigger set pieces. The graphics were highly detailed, and the controls were tight, even the touch screen controls were solid. For a launch title, it was surprisingly polished. I can't wait to see what more developers will do with the power of system, as it's lifecycle rolls on.
1. Persona 4 Golden
This was an easy choice for me, Persona 4 Golden was my favorite Vita game this year. This was another remake, but in terms of sheer content, no other game can even compare. The game can easily last you more than 100 hours, and can still feel compelling. P4G made me a bigger fan of the franchise as a whole, and I'm looking forward to more games out of the series.
