I've really enjoyed a few handheld titles in my past, especially when I was a kid, but I've never truly been a game player that has cared for the platform as a main source of gaming. It's most definitely not been my sole platform, but my Vita and 3DS (as well as the Neo Geo X (yeah)) have pretty much been my go to systems so far this year. It's main due to my lifestyle at the moment, with college and work and many family outings that I've found the convenience favorable; but I still have absolutely loved Persona 4, Sound Shapes, 999 (thanks GB community for that one), Crimson Shroud, Kid Icarus: Uprising and I still have Fire Emblem: Awakening and Etrian Odyssey and Virtues Last Reward to get into. So have you been interested in these handhelds recently, if not, what area of gaming has been your go-to this year?
@leafhopper: For me, it's been the RPG's game bevy of unique experiences. It seems as though with Microsoft and Sony messing around with the Kinect and Move which arguably didn't go anywhere, all the while, the handhelds were pumping out quality role-playing experiences that were all about the game-play and experience and for the most part, devoid of gimmicks.
yea, some people r surprised when i tell them i play handhelds at home. i guess they r mostly looked at as something to play every once and awhile, not as a primary console. but there r plenty of high quality games out there for handhelds, so i could see how u could focus on those instead of other home consoles
I don't sink as much time onto my Vita as I'd like to but I really love it and some of the games for it are great like Gravity Rush, Frobisher Says!, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Sound Shapes, Retro City Rampage, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, Persona 4 Golden, When Vikings Attack!, etc. etc. It's what I use for my Cross-Buy indie titles also. Indie games feel a million times better on it then on PS3 and I'm glad more indie titles are coming to it. If Bioshock Infinite didn't come out, I wouldn't have broken my "April is my Vita month!" promise.
