The PlayStation Vita has been out for just about two months now and gamers have gotten a chance to sit down and play titles, everyone has an opinion on what Sony should and could release for the Vita in terms of software. Well, I also have an opinion myself so take a look at the list below.
The demon of Empire City is back again and this time he is electrocuting your pockets. Infamous 1 and 2 are PS3 exclusives that PS3 gamers have come to enjoy a lot as Sucker Punch has created a great new hero in Cole Mcgrath. What better way for PS3 gamers to get more of their new favorite hero then to have him bite-size on the PS Vita. The mere thought at being able to use his powers on the vita is amazing. A game that has the great gameplay and fun would great to have on the Vita the only answer is when will we see it.
Ratchet and Clank
Ratchet and Clank are a very dynamic duo similar to another pair of characters on this list. Even though there last outing, All 4 One wasn’t well received by critics I still stand by my pair of fun loving characters. Gamers will remember these two for years to come. The game features spectacular gameplay coupled with some of the most ingenious weapons that you can think of. With the ability to pick multiple weapons at a time this makes for some of the most interesting and fun gameplay ever. The dialogue and unique comedy makes this a really fun game, one that would be perfect on the go.
A franchise that hasn’t seen the light of day in a couple of years should be primed to make a return in a big way on a small platform. A potential Syphon Filter for the Vita would be one of those games that could define a handheld for what it is. The spy espionage and drama that unfolds is great and holds a lot to fans and gamers alike. As long as they don’t incorporate anything from Alpha Protocol this franchise could do well.
Ok, so David Jaffe has just released what may be his last Twisted Metal title ever (we are hoping that is not the case) and I thought to myself, how cool it would be to have a full-fledged Twisted Metal Game for a handheld, which is comparable to a PS3 in every regard. The amount of potential for such a game would be exponential and the amount of fun that could happen on a train or trip is almost a no-brainer.
Now, I Know some PS3 gamers are going to be alarmed with this statement, but I have never played a Sly Cooper game. I just recently downloaded the first title through the PlayStation Network and haven’t gotten a chance to play it yet, but I have to say that this is a game that is absolutely primed to take the Vita by Storm. If the art style and colors is not enough to make this a must make for the Vita, than I honestly do not know what is.
God of War
The God of War series is an absolute no brainer for the PlayStation Vita. If you have played God of War 3 for the PS3 you cannot deny that the game was a graphical masterpiece. The game was beautiful on the PS3 and I have no doubt on my mind that it would be even better on the PlayStation Vita. The screen is perfect and since the Vita has dual analog sticks it is capable of providing that great God of War style gameplay that fans have come to know and love.
Jak and Daxter
The Jak and Daxter Collection, which we recently reviewed, is a franchise that should be brought over to PS Vita. As many gamers will notice, there are some similarities to Crash bandicoot but in its own unique way. The narrative and unique mix of gameplay within the game will make this title and series as great or even better than its PS2 or PS3 counterpart. Now they could remake the collections on the Vita or remaster the franchise for the Vita. Either way, there is one thing that is certain. Jak and Daxter will rock regardless.
Great racing games on handhelds do not often happen. However, since the Vita is a miraculous piece of hardware, the possibilities are endless. Motorstorm is a racing franchise that would and can do well on the Vita. If it incorporates its online play so that gamers can play each other on the go, there can be some success for this handheld racing games.
Although, It has been announced that Zipper interactive is no more. I still believe that there is room for a possible remake or remaster of a beloved socom title for the Vita. Socom 2 is a game that I hear many gamers clamoring for repeatedly. What better way to give the people what they want so to speak with the incorporation of its online play on the Vita. Socom is a franchise that fans will never forget and they will never forget the developers that have given it to them.
Usually, I abstain from adding first person shooters to list like this because most FPS games are sometimes uninteresting, generic, and the gun-play is downright boring. I can honestly say that besides a couple of the Call of Duty Games (Black-ops, and Modern Warfare 1) Killzone is the only title that I can see really shaping the mold for first person shooters on the Vita. The power is there and so is the multiplayer. I love sci-fi type storylines and the weapons and multiplayer content that Killzone can provide may prove to be a somewhat engulfing experience.
