Best PS Vita Games 2016

Here's our pick of the best PS Vita games to be released this year

PS Vita fans could be forgiven for assuming that Sony has all but forgotten about its handheld, with the Japanese tech giant giving the machine little first-party support or fanfare during most of 2014. However, that's not to say that the console didn't see its fair share of classics during the past twelve months, including the definitive portable version of the phenomenon that is Minecraft.

Here are our ten top PS Vita titles from 2016

Freedom Wars by Sony Computer Entertainment

Minecraft: PS Vita Edition by Mojang

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair by NIS America

Soul Sacrifice Delta by Sony Computer Entertainment

God of War Collection by Sony Computer Entertainment

Sly Trilogy by Sony Computer Entertainment

Final Fantasy X|X-2 Remaster by Square Enix

Ys: Memories of Celceta by NIS America

Samurai Warriors 4 by Koei Tecmo

TxK by Llamasoft

2015 may be looking a little bleak for the Vita, but fans should take solace in the fact that in its native Japan, the machine is performing a lot better - and as its forerunner the PSP proved, sometimes that can make all the difference. A resurgence in popularity in Japan can mean increased interest elsewhere in the world, so maybe we'll see the Vita staging an epic comeback in 2015? Regardless of what happens, the following list proves that there's still life in the system yet.

That's definitely a list of ten games but I think there are better. Rayman yes, Little Big Planet, okay, but Wipeout, Dead or Alive 5 and Lumines are ace. Wipeout got marked down a lot on release for it's load times, most of which have been sorted via patch. Need for Speed Most Wanted is a good laugh too.

Also remember the PSN Store contains many games able to be played on the PS-Vita which existed before it was released:
· Minis - these bite size games are able to be played on the PS3, PSP & PS-Vita
· PSP Games - many of the games created for the PSP are also playable on the PS-Vita
· PS1 Classics - many classic games from the PS1 are playable on the PS-Vita

Another items that's nice to know is the PS-Vita and PSP are able to play co-op games over Ad-Hoc networks. This lets me play games with my kids using their PSPs as long as we each have copies of the game.

Y's, even though it was a remake, was also excellent.

There aren't many that take advantage of the Vita's special abilities. I think there are some remakes that added some touch controls. But There are only two that I really like so far. Little Deviants (kind of a kid's game) and Gravity Rush (which is pretty freakin' awesome). I'm waiting for that Alien Autopsy game that was in the launch previews.
