Best Vita Games?

Thinking about getting a Vita, what is considered the "best" games or killer apps? Opinions are appreciated.

Of the games currently available in the US, I'd say:

Persona 4 Golden
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
Disgaea 3
BlazBlue

There are a lot more available in Japan that are still being localized for US/Europe.

Person4 Golden
Lumines

And a crap ton of other stuff. ..... The digital store for the Vita is ridiculous. Do a little digging. I think you will be pleasantly surprised

Virtues Last Reward
Disgaea 3
Uncharted

Those are my top 3 at the moment but there are a good amount of other great games.

Persona 4 Golden
Disgaea 3
Gravity Rush
Assassins Creed Liberation
Uncharted
LittleBigPlanet
Ragnarok Odyssey (if you're playing with someone)
PlayStation Allstars
Metal Gear HD Collection

There are other games you'll likely enjoy, these are the ones that I think kind of stand above the crowd though. When Soul Sacrifice comes out in April, it'll replace Ragnarok on that list though.

I notice a lot of these are just ports of games already available on PS3. Are any of these games that you would recommend over there PS3 counterparts, or are they mostly the same?

Usually if a game has an identical console and handheld version I prefer the console.

The benefits are

- Portability
- Off TV Play
- Party Chat
- Sleep/Resume
- Incredible digital marketplace

This is the core reasons to use Vita over PS3.

Persona 4 Golden adds new content from the PS2 version.

Many of these are not ports though; e.g LBP is a completely new game.

Personally, I'd recommend P4G, LBP & Gravity Rush.

I was gonna recommend Rayman Origins but you said no ports.
