So with the Vita in existence I feel like Handheld Gaming has taken another leap forward and we are finally at a place where "console" quality titles are a realization.
It's been nice to play catch up on games like Metal Gear Solid 2&3 and also re-play favorites like Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on the Vita. It just seems like these days for me I have more time to "game" on a handheld.
I really don't understand all the bashing handhelds get as I thought Uncharted Golden Abyss was just as good as Uncharted 1 on the PS3. It did have some annoying touch screen elements but as a whole package it was pretty damn impressive.
If I had more time to sit in front of my TV and play games of course I'd rather game on the big screen but I feel like most people that bash it don't get it. They say I'd rather play the "big screen" version but for me it's when I'm not home where these devices shine.
I know there is a lot of couch playing going on as well but it seems silly to "complain" about handheld gaming in that way to me.
The thing that led me to post about this is I started playing God Of War Ghost Of Sparta (finally) on the PSP and I'm so overly impressed at how they crammed the console experience into the handheld. What games for you have made you forget your gaming on a handheld?
