I think the GTA trilogy would be great for vita
Here's a message I'm so glad I was given: When you fall you gotta jump back on, I'm a fighter, I'm a winner, I'm a macdaddy.

No. There is a difference between remaking a game for the vita and the vita emulating ps2 games.

that was redone, not a direct port of a PS2 game.. If Vita could run PS2 games we would be downloading them by now.

MG HD isn't a PS2 game, it's a remake. I think he was saying no to actually emulating the PS2.

Emulated: No, it's simply not powerful enough. Look at how long it took PS3 to get a working software-only emulator, and it's only for very specific games. The data bus between PS2's GPU and main RAM is actually bigger than PS3's. The specs needed to run PS2 games decently on a PC are much higher than Vita's.
The PS2 is a monster of a system, designed knowing it has access to as much electricity as it needs. A portable doesn't have that luxury.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind, Vita is not powerful enough to emulate PS2.

Ported: Of course.
