Gaming on the go has evolved significantly with the development of mobile games in the last few years, and yet the handheld console still holds a special place in our hearts.

With franchises series like Killzone and resident evil narrowing the gap between handheld consoles and their living-room-based siblings, these titles prove that bigger isn’t always better.

Fire Emblem: Awakening
A member of one of Nintendo’s oldest franchises, Fire Emblem: Awakening is a turn-based strategy masterclass that demonstrated that Nintendo and Intelligent Systems knows exactly what’s what. Normally a notoriously low-key release in the West, this latest handheld iteration kept the permadeath mechanics that made the series such a fan favourite, while adding a casual mode to entice a whole new generation of gamers into its turn-based busom.

Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut
A jewel in the Vita’s crown, this indie port of the much respected PC game is an homage to the Silent Hill’s of old, packing more than enough scares in its misleading 2D packaging. The journey is made all the scarier for its jump to handheld; the intimacy of Sony’s handheld is perfect for immersing you in the tales smothering atmosphere.
