Persona 4: Golden

Developer: Atlus

Platforms: PlayStation Vita

Release Date: October 30, 2012

Remakes and rereleases should never really be included in any year-end wrap ups because ultimately, those titles had their time in the spotlight when they first came out. Persona 4: Golden on the other hand defies this convention by proving that sometimes particular titles are just waiting for an appropriate platform to release for them to be fully enjoyed.

With a deep RPG system that's arguably the best the Persona series has ever offere, Golden is a mark better than its original release thanks to all of the additional content and competent use of the PlayStation Vita's tech that's included in the package. If you've been looking for a JRPG to sink 100+ hours into, this is likely your best bet.
