I have finally gave in and purchased a PS Vita, what I would like to know is everyones top 5 favorite games and any games you would suggest me to check out. :)

So far the game that I purchased with it is Persona 4 Golden.
I thought that might be a good place to start.

1. Persona 4 Golden: It's the best game on Vita period, hours of JRPG goodness.
2. Tearaway: I just got it and it's brilliant, a true showcase for the platform.
3. Sound Shapes: Think Little Big Planet's guitar playing little brother. It's a brilliant little platformer with an unmatched soundtrack that you can add 2 yourself via a level creation mode.
4, Guacamelee: An awesomely stylised side scrolling fighter that's addictive as hell.
5: Killzone Mercenary: Delivers on the Vita's promise of console quality gaming on the go.

Thanks man! I'll definitely check those out.
And I'm glad I got Persona 4 Golden for my first game.
From what I seen Gravity Rush looks really awesome.

Gravity Rush is pretty cool too, tricky controls though.

Persona 4 Golden, Sound Shapes, Gravity Rush, Killzone Mercenary and Muramasa make my top five right now. Haven't dug into Tearaway yet, but LBP Vita was great.

I just got a Vita myself, so I'm interested in seeing what other say as well.

If you have the PSN membership, Gravity Rush and Soul Sacrifice are free downloads. I like the little bit I played of Gravity Rush. It has beautiful graphics. I couldn't get into Soul Sacrifice, but there are others who really like that game.

I bought Sound Shapes and really like it. The way they integrated music into a platformer is unique.

The playstation store has some downloadable PSP games on sale that you can play on the Vita. I picked up and just started playing Y's Seven based on a recommendation from a different forum. It feels like a fun, old school JRPG.

Persona 4: The Golden -- Great story and fun game. You'll get your money's worth since getting to the GE will probably take 100 hours.
Gravity Rush -- fun mechanics, though I wish there was more story. Can't wait for the sequel.
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward -- You don't need to play 999, but it helps. Great story.
Dragon's Crown -- fun dungeon crawler.
The Walking Dead Season 1 -- It is on other platforms, but it is a good, short game with a good story.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus -- Ported from the PS3. Still ridiculously hard, but lots of fun.

I as well just recently bought a PS Vita and the only game I've gotten for it is Persona 4: Golden and I am loving it. It's interesting seeing what others think are good games for the system as well. Guess I have to go look into them and then see if my wallet can open a dimension into the universe with infinite amounts of money...

You might already know about this, but if you get a PS+ membership, you'll be able to get free and discounted games on the PSN Store every month. Off the top of my head, I know Gravity Rush and Soul Sacrifice are free right now. The membership pays for itself.

Closed as there's a more recently active PS Vita thread, which covers game recommendations.
