    I'm looking for recommendations in case I'm missing any.

    On my wishlist:
    - Gangs of London
    - FlatOut: Head On
    - Dragon Ball: Evolution
    - Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
    - Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover
    - Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
    - MotorStorm: Arctic Edge
    - Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes
    - Mega Man: Maveric Hunter X
    - Mega Man: Powered Up
    - Soul Eater: Battle Resonance
    - Neon Genesis Evangelion: Battle Orchestra
    - Need for Speed: Underground Rivals
    - Gran Turismo
    - Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles
    - Ghost in the Shell
    - Tekken: Dark Ressurection
    - Wipeout Pure
    - Medievil: Resurrection
    - Final Fantasy: Dissidia
    - Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2
    - Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins
    - Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

    Already purchased:
    - Ridge Racer
    - Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team
    - Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai
    - Burnout Legends
    - Pursuit Force

    PSP has quite a nice catalogue of games even if it's small it's fine by me. Simply by using Remote Joy Lite makes PSP feel like a home console. ^_^

    BBS was good but very repetitive. most of the stories in the worlds were very very poor but the actual KH storyline was excellent.. just very repeititive.


    Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky would be my reccomendation. Very slow but enjoyable start, but the story picks up and picks up, it goes from strength to strength and was genuinely an enjoyable and well paced title.

    Dissidia Duodecim is great and really one of my favorite handheld games of all time.

    Know DJ MAX Portable, know life. Prinny is the best platformer on the system, and Initial D is a great import if you dig street racing (and who doesn't?).

    Half Minute Hero is great too.

    Death Jr 1 and 2 are pretty funny.

    Also, go with GTA CW and VCS.

    Both the official Disgaea games, those should take a while to 'complete'. The Phantasy Star games are pretty cool too.

    Regarding Birth By Sleep, only get it if you're a real fan of Kingdom Hearts or JRPG's. The game has three different characters which each use the same worlds and enemies so by the end of the first character it'll start getting boring.

    get that

    don't get those

    didn't play it, but I played NFS Carbon Own the City and it was rad.

    excellent choice

    btw install cfw on your psp and u can get all those for free and even emulate sega games and such. some of the best game i played on psp were games like snatcher and policenauts which you can find eboots of.

    in my opinion, tactics ogre psp is the only game ever worth in psp. probably one of the best game I ever played. other games... hmm, so far none of them ever hooked me like this one. this is a subjective opinion btw.

    Actually it's huge, definitely not small; you should check as well:

    Daxter
    Wipeout Pulse too
    Wiepout Pure's free DLCs (they aren't on the PSN, they were given when PSN didn't exist yet, so you should check out for them on google; they're double the base game)
    Mercury Meltdown and its prequel
    Crush
    Exit
    R&C Size Matters
    Burnout Dominator
    Me and My Katamari
    Death Jr 2(avoid the first one)
    Killzone Liberation
    Resistance Retribution
    Locorocos (especially 1-2)
    Syphon Filters
    Tookobot
    Patchwork Heroes
    Me and My Katamari
    Jak and Daxter The Lost Frontier
    God of War COO/GOS


    I only suggest Lego Batman, Lego Indiana Jones 1 and Lego Star Wars 2

    Avoid the oher Lego PSP games.

    Persona 3 Portable, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (especially final mix) are all fantastic. Lots of other excellent titles, but those are some of my personal favorites

    Megaman Marverick Hunter X is a must buy, it's my favorite PSP game of all time.
    Megaman Powered Up is really nice.
    Dissidia Duodecim
    Final Fantasy: Crisis Core.
    Dead to Rights: Reckoning, it's a diamond in the rough, it's really nice, although it's a tad short, the final is really surprising.
    Bleach: Heat the Soul 7, if you like Bleach and fighting games, this is definetly for you
    Locoroco 2, it's a kids game but it's very entertaining and really hard to complete 100%
    N+, simple graphics but an outstanding platform.
    Daxter, one of the best PSP games I've ever played.
    Bust-A-Move Deluxe

    Thanks guys, my PSP collection has been growing although I wish someone would make a PSP-UMD console (HD NES is a go but not PSP-UMD TV?!) to play them on the TV, using the UMD's. :P

    Here's the list so far:
    Ape Escape
    Burnout: Legends
    Dragon Ball: Evolution
    Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai
    Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2
    Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team
    God of War: Champion of Olympus
    Gran Turismo
    Killzone: Liberation
    MediEvil: Resurrection
    MotorStorm: Arctic Edge
    Need for Speed: Underground Rivals
    Pursuit Force
    Ridge Racer
    Tekken: Dark Resurrection
    PowerStone Collection
    OutRun Coast 2 Coast
    World Tour Soccer (no case)
    Formula One 06 (no case)

    The no case games were UMDs sent in the wrong game cases by the seller and then they sent me the right ones.

    Why not just use the psp component cables for psp 2000 or 3000 models? You can play psp on a TV that way.

    Dont listen to one of them.. You should get Mega Man X Maverick Hunter. I loved the fmv movie. It rocks and better than super nintendo version! :D

    interesting. i never even knew powerstone was ported to psp.

    also, unless you want soul eater and dragonball evolution simply for collections sake, dont get them. they're both rather bad fighting games

    It's inferior to the SNES version and the anime that comes with it is pathetic.
