Ok so I had about £120 reward points I had to spend before I left the country. I already have a ps3 and ps4 and all the games I'll play in the near future.

Anyway I had to spend the points on something so I got a vita, even know I don't really see a use for it. I suppose it's good to have with the ps4 and strengthens the ps eco system, so I'm hoping it'll future proof me at least.

There are not a lot of games exclusive to vita are there? Do any of you guys have a top x article you like for vita games or something similar I can have a look at since I am unfamiliar with the library.

There's topics like these every day. Do you have a favorite genre? Or any favorite games you like to play in general? The Vita has a lot of great niche support from Japan, and then a nice library of indies from the West. Then there are many PSP and PS1 games you could get as well, for any classics you may have missed. What you won't find: "AAA" games. That's just how it is; I don't mind it at all, but some people do.

Some of my favorite Vita-only games include Dangan Ronpa, Gravity Rush, and Wipeout 2048.
And then Persona 4 Golden and Muramasa Rebirth are updated games entirely worth getting.
There are also games that IMO are better-suited for Vita than elsewhere, such as Project Diva f. I'm currently enjoying Puyo Puyo Tetris, and recommend that too.
Currently playing: Puyo Puyo Tetris, Persona 3 Portable, Sweet Fuse

Heres a compilation of both localized and un-localized games that are for Vita from reddit. Hope it helps.

I should apologize, I myself dislike seeing these kinds of topics come up. I've been here for years and have over 120 platinums, I didnt do this with the PS3/PS4 and I should know better and be able to research my own games.

It's just I was never the slightest bit interested in a vita, and was surprised that I ended up with me.

Anyway. Thanks for the responses. I very much appreciate the link and the personal list, it gives me some things to look closer at.

yay AK suited! (I play poker for extra cash while I surf the internet)

If you have PS+, you probably already have plenty of games for the Vita. Rjmhart's list is a good start. Gravity Rush in particular is an attractive choice for someone with your background (familiarity with many of the "usual" games), and it is currently on sale in the EU store, too. Uncharted would also make a good starting point, since it is an exclusive but will seem familiar.

if you don't have it, get it, because it's an embarrassment of riches.
Also that's just the games I like and the ones I think are interesting,
there's quite a lot in other genres or just stuff I didn't think was worth
