Default The Best PSP Games I Have Ever Played

So I've had my PSP for just over a year now. In that time I have accumulated quite a large library of games. My first PSP games were Assassins Creed and GTA: Liberty City Stories. Both are great games. Around the same time last Christmas I received Grand Turismo, not much can be said, it is thee best racing game on the platform IMO. I've tried Dirt2, NFS Shift, NFS Pro Street, Motor storm, MX vs ATV and NFS Carbon Own the city and nothing comes close to the feeling of Grand Turismo. Dirt2 and NFS Shift are a joke. I do enjoy NFS Carbon though, it's actually pretty fun. I hear NFS:MW also isn't too bad but I haven't had a chance to try it.

Over the past year I picked up Tekken Dark Resurrection, Prince of Persia Rival swords, Socom Fireteam Bravo3. I was really surprised to see such a high end productions on the PSP. Fireteam Bravo has awesome gameplay, great graphics, very well done cut scenes. It's definitely one of my top picks. I just got Tekken 6, it's not a whole lot better than Dark Resurrection just more of the great fighting game that it is. Prince of Persia holds true to the original fighting mechanics and it's loads of fun to play, I have yet to beat it great game though.

Soon after I snagged Tony Hawks Project 8 and Little Big Planet. Neither have I had much of chance to get into. I cheated on Tony Hawk and just unlocked everything with a saved game. I really just skate around and have fun, I've gotten pretty good at the slowmo board tricks. Little Big Planet is well Little Big Planet just shrunk down to a PSP.

So right before Christmas during all the sales I got Wipeout Pulse, MotorStorm Arctic Edge and Ace Combat X2 Joint Assault. The speed and quality of Wipeout Pulse is amazing. It looks a lot like WipeoutHD, it's a classic and a must have for any PSP owner. Arctic Edge is pretty great, the tracks are a sight to behold, fun game. Ace Combat X2 Joint Assault is the best of the three. I don't know how the hell they pull off such great graphics on such a little thing. The terrain textures look amazing for the PSP. I was a huge fan of Ace Combat on the PS one and this game didn’t let me down. I still have the giant dual joystick PS one control. Man that thing was great with Decent. Bottom line Ace Combat X2 Joint Assault is fantastic game and another must have.

This Christmas I asked Santa for God of War: Ghost of Sparta. I ended up getting Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. I've been playing through Chains of Olympus first. I was really surprised when I walked in on two fine topless ladies that allowed their god to join in with a little sex mini game. I'm about half way through so far. Reminds me a bit of DMC. The boss fights are good and it keeps me entertained. I'm sure Ghost of Sparta is even better; I can't wait to fire it up.

With some of my Christmas money I went and got Silent Hill Shattered Memories, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker and Syphon Filter Logans Shadow. This game is the reason I started writing all this. I've been a long time fan of the long running series, through their ups and downs. Gameplay, graphics, controls, story, sound everything top notch. I am of course talking about Silent Hill. What a masterpiece. I could not put it down. The one time I had to go to bed I laid there for about a half an hour and got right back up and finished the game. I wasn't expecting much from it and in fact I almost didn't get it but my girlfriend insisted I go ahead and spoil myself…so I did. Not a single gun is fired and not single monster harmed. It's just a fantastic story driven, puzzle filled, psychological thriller with a chilling atmosphere. They had me jumping more than once. The first thing that grabbed me was the graphics. The quality of the textures is amazing for the PSP. Your flashlight is a simple joy to use. The closest game I could compare it to would be Heavy Rain. If you own a PSP and enjoy Silent Hill it is a must have. I understand there are multiple endings as well so I'm defiantly going through again. I suggest looking up some videos or reviews and picking it up. However tonight I'm going ahead and starting Meal Gear Solid. From what I've read I'm sure I will not be disappoint in it. I'm off to do that now.

Honorable Mentions:
Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core
Rainbow Six - Vegas
Soul Calibur - Broken Destiny
Virtua Tennis 3
NFS Carbon

Games to stay the Hell away from:
Split Second -Do not buy this game it's pure trash!
NFS Shift -it's like they didn't even try.
Army of Two -not what I was expecting, no fun.
