    And here i thought the ps vita didn't have any good games

  • lazatoy  

    I was surprised by the lack of PORTS on this list,
    one of my favorite games on the vita, telltale's the walking dead was not on list?
    Wow, that surprised me due to large number of PORTS on this list!
    and it was well received, too!
