I'm looking for an RPG or two for my PSP and trying to figure out what would be the best games to get. This can include PS1 classics, however, keep in mind, I already have Final Fantasy VII.

Not including PSP classics, I'd say Star Ocean: Second Evolution is the best.

FF: crisis core is fun. you will like it more if you have some ff7 knowledge. i didnt really have much and still liked the combat system and the visuals are in top 3 psp games.

There are so many I think the PSP had a great range of RPGS. My personal favourites are: Crisis Core Valkyrie Profiles : Lenneth Phantasy Star Star Ocean 1 & 2 Breath of Fire III There is also FFVIII on the PSN which is deff worth checking out also. Unfortunatly some of the RPGS are quite hard to find now, I just hope The Tales series appears on the PSN one day.

#12 Posted by InsultToInjury_ (2219 posts) -
Breath of Fire 3 is avaliable on UMD and on PSN (well in the UK anyway).
#13 Posted by meconate (10476 posts) -

I have quite a few PSP RPG Games, but I recommend:
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Final Fantasy II
Breath of Fire III

I liked Brave story new traveler a lot
#15 Posted by wenzke (367 posts) -

If you are OK with strategy-RPG:

Jeanne D'Arc and Disgaea are excellent.

For more tradintional JRPG:

Honestly, I would play FF7 and Suikoden off of PSN until Persona 3 PSP comes out, but that's my opinion.

Monster Hunter

haha does that count? Pretty sure it does. if that counts for you, get it man. haha and make everyone you know get it, you wont regret

#18 Posted by Shirokishi_ (11206 posts) -

Most are pretty good, I recommend Star Ocean: SE and Final Fanntasy Tactics the most, just stay far FAR away from Crisis Core.

#19 Posted by MonkeySpot (6070 posts) -

I personally disagree with you here. I dislike Tactics, but Crisis Core is awesome.

Yes, PoPoLoCrois is actually pretty good.

#23 Posted by Ragnarok2887 (25 posts) -
Crisis Core is awsome for the PSP and FFVIII now that its out on PSN. Also Monster Hunter was quite good to play.
#24 Posted by dongabilondo (333 posts) -

Half-Minute Hero is amazing! Seriously, check it out.

#25 Posted by Ragnarok1051 (19999 posts) -

popolocroismunkeypoo45

Yes this is a fantastic game.

For your traditional RPG try Brave Story
For your imports Tales of Eternia and Breath of Fire 3 are very good.
For your Action RPGs both Star Oceans are very good.
For your Strategy RPGs Jeanne D'Arc and Final Fantasy Tactics are very good.

Action RPG with no story: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Action RPG: Crisis Core
JRPG: Persona 3 PSP when it comes out. (I really want an adaptation of Nocturne and the other SMT games for the PSP.)

I'd prefer them to remake them for the PS3. That way they won't have to strip them down as much as they're doing with Persona 3.

#28 Posted by Heartagram_03 (3556 posts) -

I have to say Crisis Core and Final Fantasy Tactics: War of The Lions if you're into turn based strategy RPG`s.

#29 Posted by MonkeySpot (6070 posts) -
To you "Persona" fans - Is the fairly recent PSP version good or bad (saw a version for $28 in a big ol' box)? I have no history in the series, can I just pick it up or is it well into the characters and story? There seems to be so much of it I'm a bit daunted... but I've always been kinda intrigued by the series and I have read so much back-and-forth about the PSP version not being the same game or whatever... Help! Heh heh...

Do you mean the port of the first one? If so then NOOO. I hated it very much because of a high encounter rate, and just plain boring gameplay. It just didn't age well. However Persona 3 will be coming to the PSP this June and as you see by my sig I love it.

I mean it may be for you but it wasn't for me.
#34 Posted by dovberg (3348 posts) -

The only thing I could honestly say is the PSone titles that I've enjoyed, Wild Arms Suikoden and FF8(you said you already have 7, if you didn't like it way back when you might be suprised to see how well it has aged

#35 Posted by xxxhellfirexxx (25 posts) -

i liked mana khemia,ffcc,ff7,8,9,breath of fire 3,final fantasy 1&2(old time classic's :P),brave story...that's all i know cant remember any..

#36 Posted by Hanzoadam (6576 posts) -

Phantasy star portable or Phanatsy star portable 2

Disgaea and Disgaea 2 are awesome too

#37 Posted by Ringx55 (5967 posts) -
Star Ocean 1 & 2, Kingdom of Paradise (older game) and Final Fantasy Crisis Core are the best imo.
#38 Posted by meconate (10476 posts) -
Haha, I actually completely forgot about Monster Hunter Freedom, and it's one of my favourite games on the PSP! Hahaha, yeah, MHFU is brilliant, worth every penny.

Quoted for truth, good sir!

Also, avoid Crisis Core. Terrible game, relies way too heavily on luck, annoying one-dimensional characters... Stay away.

I think Hexyz Force is good..^_^..
#42 Posted by ThePerro (3103 posts) -

Ys Ark of Napishtim
Phantasy Star Portable 1 + 2
Crimson Gem Saga
Final Fantasy I + II Anniversary Edition
Brave Story

#43 Posted by Kurezan (1850 posts) -

Oh wow. Old thread revived.

I would say out of the ones I've played, Persona 3 Portable is my favorite.

What is the best experience that comes from the Star Ocean games?
#45 Posted by DJ_Headshot (6292 posts) -
Tales of Eternia or Valkyrie Profile Lenneth 2 games i logged over 40 hours in and made it literally to the final part of both games but never beat them :(
#46 Posted by LordUrv (25 posts) -
Crisis Core Final Fantasy Phantasy Star Portable 1 and 2 God of War Dante's Inferno Tales of the World Radiant Mythology All the Monster Hunter Games Gods Eater Burst Brave Story: New Traveler thats all i could think of at the top of my head. Hope you like them.
#47 Posted by Coolyfett (5088 posts) -
Brave Story was cute....Its actually the first RPG that Coolyfett ever played. The next one was Jeanne D Arc...both had the OMG moments that Coolyfett loves. Stil playing Phantasy Star which story wise is not good. What RPGs have the best stories??? Those are the good ones.
#48 Posted by Bubble_Man (3100 posts) -

My favorite is Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. It has a ton of replay value, plenty of sidequests and a story filled with betrayal and political intrigue. The many classes to choose from and customizable skills add plenty of depth. It's easily the best strategy rpg on the psp.

#49 Posted by genfireterian (25 posts) -

PSP has really good tactical RPG titles.

Tactics Ogre - Good storyline

Disgaea and Disgaea 2 - The humour is classic. It's so awesome that I admit going on YouTube just to rewatch some of the hilarious moments.

Jeanne D'Arc - The gameplay is unique, and the short movies that show in between stages are very nicely done.

#50 Posted by Mau-Justice (4907 posts) -

Crisis Core and Disgaea 1&2 top my list. Tactics Ogreis pretty awesome too.
