GameRevolution's Top 25 PS Vita Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Monday, December 30 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff



15.
Flower

While thatgamecompany's Journey is undoubtedly the greatest experience the studio has created thus far, Jenova Chen and his team likely wouldn't have ever dreamed it up if they first hadn't developed flower. A game that features absolutely no violence and takes full use of the console's Sixaxis controls, flower is a serene experience that imbues you with a sense of peace. It's abstract, gorgeous, and emotional all at the same time.



14. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward


This Chunsoft-developed adventure game is unlike anything you've ever experienced on a Nintendo handheld. It's incredibly dark and mature, serving up a disturbing and deep story that isn't for the faint of heart. If you appreciate games for their narratives and can do without all of the gameplay frills, then Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward will serve up an experience you won't soon forget.



13. Guacamelee!


This stellar action platformer is one that fans of Metroid and Castlevania must play. It harkens back to those old-school 2D platformers, while still serving up an experience that is wholly unique with an identity of its own. There are plenty of hidden power-ups and goodies hidden within the expertly crafted levels, and the pitch-perfect gameplay makes traversing each level an absolute joy. It's just a shame this hilarious game ends too quickly.



12. Super Stardust Delta


If you've ever played a Super Stardust game, you don't really need me to explain to you why Delta is so high on our PS Vita list. With insanely addictive gameplay, a visual style that really pops on the Vita's OLED display, and some excellent music, it's scary how easy it is to sink countless hours into this game. The fact that Sony's handheld has a second analog stick only makes the experience all the more compelling.



11. Retro City Rampage


If you're longing for an experience that isn't afraid of indulging in retro-fueled references over and over... and over again, Retro City Rampage is the game for you. With so many callbacks to games and properties from so many years ago, it serves up the ultimate nostalgia trip. It's got an insane narrative and plays like the earliest top-down Grand Theft Auto games. Having the ability to bring this wonderfully wacky action game with you wherever you go can't be understated.
