I Miss The Vita, And It Isn't Even Dead Yet
It seems weird to "miss" a system that isn't dead and what's more, a unit that's really quite new.
Still, there's no other way to describe it when you don't touch the thing for months on end.
When the PlayStation Vita first came out, I actually played it a lot. I was surprised at how often I found myself playing it. I was also surprised at the amazing quality of some of the games; Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048, Rayman Origins, Touch My Katamari, Gravity Rush, etc. They were all pretty damn great...the only problem is that all of them were available in the first few months of the Vita's availability. After that, all we really got were a bunch of PS3 ports and digital titles, along with a few mildly disappointing Vita exclusives.
Sure, I loved Tearaway and I still say it's the best game on the system. I also still play Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational from time to time, just 'cuz I love me some Hot Shots. But really, what else is there to talk about? Sometimes I glance wistfully at the Vita, sitting there all charged up and ready to go. I reach for it and then I go, "wait, I've got lots of games that need playing and sadly, none of them are on the Vita." Yes, there are Vita versions of some of those games but seriously, when I'm home, why would I not play those games on my living room TV?
The Vita might not be officially dead just yet but to me, it's already gone. That's kinda sad.
