PSP Recommendation Thread

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by Minishdriveby (9630 posts) -

*MOD NOTE* - You can also check out the old recommendation thread, it has more game ideas with detailed information. ALL"What game should I get?" or any similar questions relating to game recommendation threads outside this stickied thread will be locked. Please keep it all in here. - Hungry_bunny

Just thought I'd take the time to make an update Recommendation thread. One that is actually somewhat useful and doesn't just display games from 2006. Well it still could use some work, seeing as some of the sections are left blank. If you guys want to give me any suggestions on which games to put in here that would be appreciated. Hope this helps anyone, and possibly replaces the old thread. I'll try to update as much as possible, and improve this.

Future Releases

Just a couple releases coming up soon not out yet but they look promising so I'll just list a few so you guys can keep an eye out for them

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep
Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

I'm sure there's plenty more but there's just a small list of what's to come for the remainder of this year and next year.

Reserved once again.

Wow, amazing work man, keep it up. This will definitely minimize the amounts of threads requesting recommendations. Once again, great job. If I come up with any other games to add, I'll let you know.
#7 Posted by K1LLR3175 (12734 posts) -
Nice job man.
#8 Posted by b3yondstupidity (12500 posts) -
Great stuff man, I got some suggestions for Sports as you got nothing there, I got - PES 2009, FIFA 09, MADDEN 09 and MLB 2K9.
#9 Posted by Minishdriveby (9630 posts) -
Thanks I'll add the sports games in right now.
#10 Posted by riou7 (10832 posts) -

nice list

#11 Posted by Chaay (315 posts) -

It's a very nice list and a great start, Minishdriveby. I recommend that, along with the title and picture, you provide a short reasoning for why it's on the recommended list, and possibly a review score from a gaming review site or two. Since that would be a daunting task by oneself, us forumers could send you a message with a paragraph of recommendation for those games you add to the list.

All in all, great work!

#12 Posted by Minishdriveby (9630 posts) -
Thanks yeah that would be very helpful.
#13 Posted by thegame584 (141 posts) -

That is a great list, the best I've ever seen (the pictures make this really awesome!).

But i think that in the shooters section you should add Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow (even if it's just a "See also:" thing under Dark Mirror), as well as Killzone Liberation. They definitely deserve a spot.

#14 Posted by Minishdriveby (9630 posts) -
True you're right I totally forgot about Killzone too thanks for reminding me!
#15 Posted by thegame584 (141 posts) -

This thread should be stickied. It's Awesome!

#16 Posted by scar-hawk (5404 posts) -
It's much better than that other thread.
#17 Posted by hockey73 (8200 posts) -
Nice! This should be stickied.
#18 Posted by RAGINGxPONY (1452 posts) -

Great thread but i don't think i saw Socom Fireteam Bravo 2 in there which should be added because it's an awesome online shooter for the PSP.

#19 Posted by Minishdriveby (9630 posts) -
bump
#20 Posted by DarkMaster7991 (1585 posts) -
Yes! I jsut finished asking if they have an updated thread of Recommendations! Well if they don't this should be added! It kinda anoyys me people are told to go to the recommendation thread when it is really outdated. I mean they are good game, but 2006.... Come on.
#21 Posted by Chiddaling (9106 posts) -

bumped.

Great thread. :)

#22 Posted by Almighty-mints (5033 posts) -

Great thread man! Thanks alot!

But you have to add some more RPGs and keep this updated or else it will be useless like the others that have been attempted at being made.

#25 Posted by MyopicCanadian (8345 posts) -

Can anyone help with RPG recommendations? I'm looking at Disgaea, Star Ocean II, Valkyrie Profile, and any others I may have missed. They all look good and I can't decide :o I'm leaning towards Disgaea just because I've always wanted to try something from that series.

#26 Posted by jgirl20 (205 posts) -

I want to get a game that's NOT action/shooter/RPG/strategy/anything "hardcore" before I leave for the summer. I'm leaning toward Crush right now, but I'm sure there are tons and tons of other games out there that I'd also like. Any suggestions?

Loco Roco 2 is a great and rather casual game that you may enjoy. Plus it's rather cheap at about 20 dollars or less.

Exit is another game I've played that is really good especially if you like puzzle games. That said, later on down the road, the levels can be rather hard to figure out. Again, this is a cheap game. I got it for about 10 dollars off ebay and I'm sure in most stores (if you can find it) are about the same price.

Daxter, though somewhat of an action game, is rather simple in context and really, at least for me, isn't hard. Something worth looking into and should give you something to play for a few days.

The last game I would recommend is Patapon. Easy to get into, catchy tunes, and something good to play in quick bursts. If you haven't looked into this game, I'd encourage you to do so.

The best part about these games are the cheap factor. Chances are you won't be spending more than 20 dollars on any of these titles so you may be able to pick up more than one if it's in the budget.

MGS:PO is sold out everywhere! But I'm really looking for a stealth action game, any recomendations? Maybe just get MPO+?

Already have Syphon Filter: Logans Shadow.

Also, If I enjoyed God of War would I enjoy gurumin or are they completely different?

#30 Posted by scar-hawk (5404 posts) -

You might want toget Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror.

#31 Posted by Redonkulous_D (1018 posts) -

The current games I'm looking forward to are MGS: PW and GT. I don't want my PSP to collect dust until october and I'm willing to buy any one game from PSN. What say you?

I'm wondering the same thing. Wait for a good PS1 title to come out.

scar-hawk

Don't really want it to be another FPS, but thanks :)

Also If I had to pick one of these 3 games to get from PSN which should it be: Resident Evil Directors Cut, FFVII, or Tokobot?

#34 Posted by scar-hawk (5404 posts) -
From what I heard Final Fantasy VII would be your best bet.
#35 Posted by TEH_RADIO (418 posts) -

FFVII from the psn store is a great game for only 10$, but you also have to buy a memory card...

Does anyone know what games are coming out in the PSN store this week?

#36 Posted by scar-hawk (5404 posts) -
Yeah the memory FF7 alone takes up is worth close 20 dollars.
#37 Posted by Game_Master359 (99 posts) -

Ratchet and Clank isn't very long, but its fun and the story is nice.

I don't know about SOCOM Story wise, or even length for that matter but I hear the online is nice.

FFVII Crisis Core is supposed to have a good story and be pretty long if you like Action RPGS, I'm still playing through it but I haven't played enough to give a good enough opinion.
