The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS Vita Games - 2013 Edition

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



5. Hotline Miami


This indie darling may be available on plenty of other platforms, but having the ability to play Hotline Miami on the go makes the Vita version one of the best ways to experience Dennaton Games' disturbingly dark action game. It's got that old-school challenge and aesthetic, and thanks to some brilliant design decisions, the two marry together to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.



4. Ys: Memories of Celceta


You'll be hard pressed to find many better role-playing titles for PlayStation Vita than Ys: Memories of Celceta. With a deep and engrossing story, stellar gameplay mechanics, and characters you won't soon forget, this JRPG is one that will go down in history as a one of the best experiences on the platform. It's also mind-numbingly gorgeous. Seriously, if you have any affinity toward role-playing games, you must give this one a look.



3. Gravity Rush


This insanely unique action game is an absolute staple for every Vita owner. With awesome and incredibly inventive gravity-based gameplay, you simply won't find another experience out there quite like it, across any platform. Once you wrap your head around the controls, it's an absolute blast to play, and the story and visuals only enhance that level of immersion. 



2. Dragon's Crown


With a stunningly beautiful hand-drawn art style, Dragon's Crown is easily one of the best visual showpieces for Sony's handheld. Sure, some of the characters may have overly exaggerated physiques, but that aside, the overall character and environmental design is absolutely jaw-dropping. It's also got a really rewarding combat system that plays astoundingly well.



1. Persona 4 Golden


Who would have thought a glorified PlayStation 2 port would make its way to the very top of our list? The fact of the matter is that P4G is without a doubt the very best experience available on PlayStation Vita. It's a vastly improved port of the beloved high school-centric RPG from Atlus, with one of the greatest casts of characters around. The story is absolutely fantastic and will stick with you for quite some time after the 80+ hour experience is all said and done. There's no better game you can buy for your Vita. Period.
