2012 saw the launch of the PlayStation Vita this year and while the Nintendo 3DS saw plenty of great titles throughout the year, the best game for a portable gaming platform this year is on the PlayStation Vita… and that game is Persona 4 Golden. While this may have been a port of a PlayStation 2 title, this RPG offers not only the best experience currently available on the Vita, but perhaps the best RPG handheld in recent years.
While implementing only the bare minimum of touch-controls and online interaction while offering hours of new gameplay and enhanced visuals, Persona 4 Golden is not only everything someone should look for in an enhanced game, but everything that a portable should contain.
With hours and hours of gameplay, heavy focus on story and enough content that may require multiple playthroughs, Persona 4 Golden devours your time in the best way possible. – Travis Bruno
