So ive been thinking about getting a vita to play otome games, and its a pretty penny so im on the fence. Would you say its worth it for one? Are the vita games really good or the ones on steam/cellphone are just as fine?
This is something I have had to sit on for the past few days because I was trying to figure out the best way to answer this.
And the conclusion I have come down on is it’s actually very hard to explain.
Only you can decide if you think a Vita is worth it. I will say this, do not buy a Vita for just otome games. Look and see what else is out there that you are interested in.
For me, I bought my Vita for Persona 4 Golden and The Walking Dead Telltale games. So, when I started getting into otome and see that there were otome games on Vita, it was like; heck yes, more reasons that buying this was good!
The biggest upside to Vita otome is, you get the whole game at a set price, they are usually longer (20+ hours), they may have an additional element to the game (such as RPG or puzzle) and they are voiced (partially or fully).
Also, just like with cellphone games, the quality of the games on Vita are a shot in the dark. I have played some games that I have made me very very happy about my purchase and some games that I was less than impressed with. And, at the same time, one can’t really judge the quality of a game from a review, you just have to buy it and try it for yourself and be okay with the fact that you might not be happy with the game.
This is why I now go into games blind. I don’t want to know about any hype surrounding the game because it sets expectations for the story. :/
So, I can’t really say one way or another if you should buy a Vita for just otome, other than don’t buy it for just otome.
But supporting otome is still something you can do without a Vita, but I want more Hakuoki so…. buy a Vita.
