    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.

    I would add taiko no tatsujin (drumming game from namco) and kazuo (or Go sudoku in the US). For some reason the psp sudoku (not the new one released with Carol Vorderman, haven't tried this one) is very relaxing with the music it provides.

    this thread is about REALLY GOOD games, not games "worth playing"

    @tama mog: Taiko no Tatsujin is also one of my favorites at the moment, but it's missing something without the drum controller...

    Yea it's good news that taiko no tatsujin 2 is comin out.....but keep in mind with the drum controllers it defeats the to go factor of the psp.

    And as a side note, I forgot to mention the reason why I bought a psp and I'm surprised it hasn't been mentionedl. Initial D Streets Stage.

    Me & My Katamari

    Can we give minus votes? If so, I want to give a - vote for Me and My Katamari. Worst controls ever on any game i've ever played.

    But for Essentials:

    GTA: LCS
    Tekken: Dark Resurrection
    DJ Max Portable
    Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

    Those are really the only ESSENTIALS. I'm not including the games that I personally enjoy, but generally the ones I think should be essential.

    You people are way to lax on your 'essentials' list. This is not a favorites thread, it's an essentials jeeze!!!!!!!!

    While I've only played the demos, Sega Virtua Tennis World Tour and Burnout Legends I've found to be really, really fun games to play.

    it's out in japan, isn't it?
    just like in Lumines, most text is in english anyway

    the only bad thing about the game is that's it's so short...it could easily have twice as many stages...
    I still have to unlock both 'secret' stages though...
