    Post your essential (favourite) Playstation Portable games in this topic and they'll be added to the list, for others to refer to when deciding which game to play.

    If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

    You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.

    ((UPDATE)) Please don't include any HOMEBREW or PSX/1 games here, other lists are available for such games in their respective threads. Thank You.

    ((UPDATE)) If you need to check the old thread: linky.

    Thanks Dice for the newly updated Essentials.

    Got a PSP recently and needed a few good suggestions on games.

    This list helped.

    Rock Band Unplugged is seriously AMAZING!!!

    Resistance Retribution is the finest portable shooter of all time, with a soundtrack that blows away 95% of games ever made on any platform. HIGHLY recommended.

    God Of War - AMAZING

    Tokobot is awesome

    Tekken 5 DR is seriously awesome

    Patapon 2 is great!!

    Taiko Portable is really fun

    Puzzle Quest

    Outrun 2006

    Super Stardust Portable is sooooo good.

    Prinny

    Ultimate Ghouls and Ghosts

    Me and My Katamari, though you really have to give it time to learn the controls.

    I'm surprised Echochrome is low on the list, it's actually quite good imo. +1 vote from me.

    Also, despite most of them being at the top already:
    FFVII:CC
    Metal Gear Portable Ops
    God of War
    Lumines (both)
    Loco Roco (both)
    Patapon (both)
    Burnout Legends & Dominator
    Rock Band Unplugged
    Breath of Fire 3
    Star Ocean
    Power Stone
    Metal Slug Anthology

    That's all I can think of right now, I'll be sure to check out the ones I haven't tried yet [​IMG]

    Final Fantasy VII +1
    Patapon +1
    Phantasy Star Portable +1

    Yuusha 30 is one of my favorites, it has very nice re-arranged "classic" music, not really classic. Yeah, try it and you'll see it.

    Crimson Gem Saga. Excellent turn-based jrpg, localized from Korea by Atlus that this system has needed badly.

    Beautiful 2D game with relatively simple but utterly addictive gameplay.
