    It never fails to surprise me how completely stupid the people at Sony are, or how stupid they think we are....that's one godawful collection of top three's for each category and smacks of pushing people towards buying flagging titles.

    Seriously Sony....sack your media team and start over.

    It wasn't a great port. But Xenogears is an awful game and Chrono Trigger i have difficulty accepting on the PSP when the DS version is effectively definitive. Don't know how i feel about Parasite Eve but i'd much rather have seen Vagrant Story and Soul Reaver in place of Xenogears and Chrono Trigger, merely because they could do with some more recognition...perhaps even Tomb Radier The Last Revelation?

    Can't vote on any of the PS3 stuff but...

    Dissidia 012 for PSP game. Possibly the greatest PSP game, period.

    I wouldn't particularly choose any of the PSX games but I'd choose Parasite Eve if I had to.

    ...So you'll put two Japanese games you don't even understand over a fantastic ARPG with incredible amounts of content and incredibly fun gameplay mechanics?

    Dissidia was just both potently addictive and endless. That's exactly what you want for a handheld game.

    Translation patch sir. Everything is patched. And i prefer challenging fun with 3 other friends than a endless brawl with the same stupid CPU opponents once you get the hang of it. Multiplayer? Nah im not going to bother with it becasue either the person i play against is too noobish or either too pro for me. The plot on all those games are lame anyways. So in gameplay i would say MH3rd ftw.

    Thing is, Not everyone has hacked their PSP and has translation patch. And would they really put up a Japanese game in a US thing?
