As the thread title states I just got a PSP and looking to get some cheap ass games. I noticed the system has a lot of titles, I went by two gamestops yesterday one of which had a about 300 psp games multiple dupes the other game stop didnt have any games. From looking at GS prices they seem reasonable for used I picked up Daxter for .99 cents so that was ok. I'm into action/adventure games as well as RPG's and it seems like the system has quite a few for each genre but I dont even know where to start. I'm into other genres as well but I'm not a fan of sports games really (racing games excluded).

Thanks for any help you can give.

Along with the great recommendations from CAGs above, some others:

Ratchet: Size Matters
The Third Birthday

There's also a shitload of PS1 classic RPGs that you could pick up from PSN for about $6-$10 each.

One great website to use to create that backlog is:


They currently have a 31% off used game code: TRICKORTREAT (valid today only).

Some PSP remakes of PS1 RPG's:

Persona 2: Innocent Sin
Star Ocean: Second Evolution (and I think there is a remake of the first Star Ocean, the SNES one, too)


Loco Roco (fun, quirky game.. almost a 2D platformer, but it's kinda different)

Can't go wrong with Lunar: Silver star harmony, probably one of the best games ever made, and now ported to psp

PSN has sales on full PSP games every once in a while. Remember, those games will work on a Vita if you ever get one of those down the line.
