Best Traditional RPG: Handheld - Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
Despite being the third version of 2007's Persona 3, that didn't stop series fans from eating up this handheld incarnation. And with good reason: P3P's female protagonist option provides a fresh, new game for even the veterans. New social links, existing ones being rewritten, a few new songs, cameos from Persona 4's cast, and a general different perspective than the original title all help to freshen up the experience. Yet it's the same type of game that made RPGfans fall in love the first time: It's a school and a dating sim, all while you and your dormmates carry out late-night heroic acts with demons at your whim, unbeknownst to anyone else. As an old title made new again, this remained top pick - an honor considering the sheer size of the handheld libraries these days.
