Nominees for Destructoid’s Best Vita Game of 2016

Yes, this portable exists

I will never forget heading to GameStop to pick up my day one Vita with that beautiful OLED screen.

There was no one else there, no doubt scared off by the high price tag of the proprietary memory cards. It was a stupid mistake and that hubris cost Sony dearly, as nearly every developer outside of Atlus and several others killed their support for it. No, there weren’t a whole lot of games for the floundering system in 2016, but those that did see the light of day were pretty amazing indeed.

Here are Destructoid’s nominees for Best Vita Game of 2016…

[Incomplete products like Steam Early Access titles, and episodic titles that are not fair to assess as standalone experiences, without a full episode count, were not eligible for this year’s awards. The cutoff for entry into Destructoid’s 2016’s Game of the Year awards is December 6, 2016.]
