The current PS Vita games collection leaves a lot to be desired in our opinion and while you’ll find a number of great games coming soon in 2014, it seems that the list is missing out on some vital titles or good games in certain genres.
Every gamer will have their own wish list and you can count on mixed opinions, but seeing the lack of a Call of Duty PS Vita game in 2013 and a lack of news in 2014 surrounding other great franchises like Lord of the Rings gives us cause for concern. The Shadow of Mordor looks impressive, and my love for LOTR and strategy could have been met on PlayStation Vita with a title a lot of people would purchase for when on-the-move.
What PS Vita games do you feel are missing in the 2014 lineup, and is there any types of games missing from the handheld in your opinion?
Coming up to two years ago we touched on the best PS Vita games that could revive Sony’s portable games system, and below that article we heard from Product Reviews readers about the lack of games. Some people feel “there’s nothing to play even after purchasing most games”, and these gamers also want to see a lot more AAA titles.
Personally, it’s the specific games that we feel the PS Vita needs on the coming soon list for 2014/2015. Of course, you don’t need to look far to see opinions about the state of demand for mobile handhelds. “the hardware and games on iPhone and Android phones is so good that the need for a dedicated games handheld seems to be dropping, not to mention the amount of money being made with apps”, said one Product Reviews reader.
Do you feel that the PS Vita has increased or dropped in popularity? Do you still see a need for handheld games systems, considering the power of phones and accessories they attract?
We hope to see better PS Vita strategy games over the next year and COD 2014 receiving a PS Vita release. Leave a comment below with your PS Vita games wish list, and your feelings about its place in the marketplace.
