Welcome to GamesBeat’s PlayStation Vita launch awards. Released on February 22 in North America, the Vita has already had a steady blend of critical acclaim and controversy, but who cares about all that? This feature is (mostly) about the games! Plus, we didn’t want to wait until December to hold our next awards ceremony.

We’ve broken the Vita awards up into the Best Of and Worst Of honors. Feel free to jump in the comments and let us know what your own love/hate experiences have been like with the Vita so far. The 5” 960×544 OLED display is no longer cutting edge by today’s standards, and it doesn’t rival the iPhone’s hefty Retina Display specs, but it’s big and beautiful nonetheless. After days of endless Vita gaming, you’ll immediately realize just how dull and small the Nintendo 3DS display truly is. Size does matter, as does color vibrancy and image sharpness, all of which the Vita has plenty of. Click here to see the Worst Vita Hardware Feature. To most gamers, golf has to be the most boring “sport” imaginable.

You’d expect more of the same with a game like Hot Shots Golf, but you’d be wrong. The Hot Shots franchise has continually breathed some much-needed life into the virtual iteration of the sport with a cartoonish cast, exciting presentation, and rock-solid gameplay. As noted in our review, we were surprised at just how much fun we were having with a golf game, and you will be too. Click here to see the Game you thought would be awesome but actually sucks. One of the ways to pad a new system’s launch is to port over games from previous systems.
