With the general lack of support the system has received lately, it’s not surprising that many people feel that the PlayStation Vita is heading down the path of forgotten consoles. But just because Sony and other developers aren’t cranking out new games for it every week doesn’t mean the powerful little portable gaming device should be abandoned altogether. So go clean the dust off that PlayStation Vita and forget about tossing it out because here are 10 essential games for Sony’s misunderstood handheld.
10. Gravity Rush
Gain a new gaming perspective as you take on the role of Kat, a futuristic heroine trying to protect her world from falling apart around her.
Gravity Rush calls on players to take control of the force of gravity. By utilizing the Vita’s built-in gyro sensor, you tilt and move the system to explore incredible environments, uncover secrets, and deliver devastating attacks. The game also features some incredibly rich graphic novel-style storytelling with crisp vibrant colors, gorgeous cel-shading, and a terrific soundtrack. Anyone looking for a fresh experience in the action genre will definitely dig this game. It’s just a shame that Gravity Rush 2, currently in development, will only be available for the PlayStation 4.
