THE PSP or PlayStation Portable has tons of great but forgotten games.
After Nintendo had dominated the handheld market with Game Boy and DS, Sony saw potential and released the PSP in 2005.
It was a beefier console than the DS and broke through with a string of landmark titles that are still fondly remembered to this day.
While the DS still beat it in sales, it did well enough for Sony to release the PlayStation Vita in 2011, unfortunately it didn’t do so well.
Anyway, there are still plenty of great games waiting for you on the PSP, and you can get your hands on one relatively cheaply these days.
Persona 3: Wearable
It’s almost impossible to make a list about a Sony console without mentioning a Persona game.
Persona 3 was the first game to add the life sim aspects that eventually flowed into the social linking system that made Persona 4 and 5 so popular.
It has all the other ingredients you would expect from these games, great characters and challenging but fun JRPG battles.
Siphon Filter: Dark Mirror
This third-person shooter was a technical marvel that could accommodate up to eight players simultaneously in a single session without so many problems.
In addition, it has an acclaimed story and by far one of the best shooter gameplays on the console.
Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core
This is a prequel story for the classic Final Fantasy 7 that explores the past of Zack, Aeris’ former boyfriend.
If you’ve always wanted more from FF7 then this is a great way to see the events leading up to this game’s launch.
Tactical Ogre: Let’s stick together
This remaster of a SNES classic was created by the team that would go on to create Final Fantasy Tactics, so know this is nothing to snoop on.
It’s a surprisingly complex game where your movements affect the flow of combat and all sorts of variables like weather effects and tile effects come into play.
Grand Theft Auto: Wars in Chinatown
If you’ve ever wondered what would have become of the Grand Theft Auto series if it had stayed top-down and 2D, then Chinatown Wars is for you.
It adapts well to the smaller screen, the combat has a frantic energy that’s a lot of fun, and there are plenty of side activities to get lost in.
God of War: Chains of Olympus
These games do their best to bring the full console God of War experience to a handheld, and while it’s not the prettiest game ever, the gameplay is solid.
You can hack and smash your way through this world with ferocious abandon, with all the responsiveness and high energy of the home console games.
This wild rhythm game hits you with all sorts of flashing colors and trance-like music as it sends you through a grueling gauntlet of Tetris-style puzzles.
It can be a bit tricky to wrap your head around, but once you get the hang of it, hitting combos right on the beat is incredibly satisfying.
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walkers
Metal Gear Solid is known for its tactical stealth mechanics, and the retreating requirement of a handheld console plays into it really well.
All you need to focus on are your limited tools and the enemies in front of you, leading to some fiendish stealth levels that will test your skills.
