So you're buying a PS Vita, essential games to own

Just over a year ago, I wrote this buying guide, covering the best Vita games, budget titles, augmented games and others so far, which has proved to be one of the more enduring articles on the blog. All the games on the original article are still valid choices, but its time for the 2013 version, for all those who are picking up a Vita now they're dirt cheap, or are planning on joining the fun with Vita TV.

If you're coming in late, that's an impressive roster of good or great games (for a theoretically struggling platform) and the indie stream has really given it impetus. See my reviews list for some more detail, or search the blog for news, video etc. Anything I've forgotten, or your own favourites? Let us know in the comments.
