The #PS Vita picked up a ton of hype during its release for its bold concept and powerful hardware. Unfortunately, Sony’s latest handheld device didn’t really gain much popularity and is even considered as a failure to some gamers. The Vita still thrives on, although not nearly as popular as it once was.

While the system is nothing much but an indie and niche machine nowadays, the PS Vita still gained a lot of solid titles over the years. If you plan on picking up the handheld, here are some of the best games you can buy for it.

‘Persona 4 Golden’

The iconic "Persona" series managed to arrive on the Vita during the early days of the handheld.

"#Persona 4 Golden" is a remake of the fourth game in the series and includes a slew of new content for players to enjoy. While the core game was still intact, many players believed that ‘Golden’ could stand on its own as a ‘"new" game because of all the content that was added in. Aside from battling Shadows in a TV world, you also live life as a normal high school student who struggles with exams and love life. JRPG fans will feel right at home with the game’s engaging story, turn-based combat, and social systems.

‘Gravity Rush’

One of Sony’s exclusive games, "#Gravity Rush" was originally meant to launch on the PS4 before they took a chance and ported it on the Vita. Here, you’ll play the role of Kat, an amnesiac girl who quickly discovers that she has the power to manipulate gravity. While you spend most of the game taking on various missions around Heksville, there’s nothing much more satisfying than flying around the spacious world.

"Gravity Rush" also takes advantage of the Vita’s many features like gyroscope, touch screen, and touch pad. If you’re seeking a fast-paced adventure game, look no further and pick this up if you have a PS Vita.

‘Uncharted: Golden Abyss’

One of the very first games on Sony’s handheld, “Uncharted: Golden Abyss” follows the story of Nathan Drake before the events of the first game. The “Uncharted” feeling is still there as you’ll be busy climbing steep cliffs, collecting treasure, and shooting bad guys. The main difference here is that the game makes use of the Vita’s gimmicks as this game was a great way to show off what the system could really do. Series character Sully makes his return while heroine Elena is replaced by a different leading lady named Marisa Chase. Series fans and action lovers will surely enjoy what “Golden Abyss” has to offer.
