While thatgamecompany'sJourneyis 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 andtakes full use of the console's Sixaxis controls,floweris aserene 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 disturbingand 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, thenZero Escape: Virtue's Last Rewardwill serve up an experience you won't soon forget.
This stellar action platformer is one that fans ofMetroidandCastlevaniamust 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 expertlycrafted levels, and the pitch-perfect gameplay makes traversing each level an absolute joy. It's just a shame this hilarious game endstoo quickly.
12. Super Stardust Delta
If you've ever played a Super Stardustgame, you don't really need me to explain to you why Deltais 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 easyit 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 Rampageis 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-downGrand Theft Autogames. Having the ability to bring this wonderfully wacky action game with you wherever you go can't be understated.
