- Tearaway (already own digitally) <--Cutesy and creative, kinda shallow though.

- Little Big Planet (already own digitally) <--Not much different than all the other LBPs. If you enjoy the series, it's more of the same.

- Uncharted Golden Abyss (own digitally via PS+, BUT I've cancelled my memberships, so....) <--Really nice graphics, very repetitive combat, and eventually tedious game design.

I really enjoyed Golden Abyss. I, personally, definitely recommend it if you like Uncharted.

Uncharted isn't good. Avoid it. It just exists to show the gimmicks for the touchscreen and touchpad.

Tearaway is built around those features. The difference is where uncharted forced them in (think early Wii games with forced waggle) Tearaway is a charming game that uses those features really well as it was built around the concept.

I can't comment on Uncharted, but Tearaway was a decent but unremarkable game with really annoying touchpad gimmicks and I don't think it's a bid deal to go out and purchase that one.

Little Big Planet was enjoyable enough, but it's basically more of the same as the others.

Persona 4 Golden
Muramasa
Dragon's Crown
Trails of Cold Steel 1 & 2
Soldner X-2 (if you like Shmups)
Gravity Rush
Ys Memories of Celceta


These are some must must-haves on Vita. If you get just one game then Persona 4 Golden. I so rarely use this term but that game is a real masterpiece.

I already have the majority of those games. I was just going with the lauded games by the mainstream press which I don't own, since I feel I'm more or less done with Vita collecting now.

Sounds to me like I can skip most though.

I would watch a few runs of this or something before buying. Shmups are probably my favorite genre, but this game bored me to tears.

I have it and it's decent enough, but nothing amazing.

I'll be interested in hearing WHY you think Uncharted isn't good; I, on the other hand, have already explained why I enjoyed it.

We all know the Vita is mostly buoyed by niche weeb games (a good thing if you enjoy them), as unfortunately mainstream support of Vita only lasted about a year before Sony cowardly gave up. During that time a handful of mainstream exclusives were made that remain decent though. If you don't have these, I suggest them:

Dead or Alive 5 Plus
Killzone: Mercenary
Resistance: Burning Skies
Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen
Uncharted Golden Abyss
Unit 13
Wipeout 2048


Golden Abyss is a poor man's Uncharted, and wasn't even made by Naughty Dog. That said, it's still like a 7/10, and has great graphics for the platform.
