Top 5 Games for PSP

Looking Back: The Top 5 Games for the Sony PSP

Although Sony has moved on to the PlayStation Vita, the PlayStation Portable (PSP) has become a huge part of gaming history. Originally advertised as a high-powered system in comparison to Nintendo's Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS, the PSP ended up having some awesome games. Whether you're a fan of RPGs, puzzles, deep stories, or action-packed gameplay, this list of The Top 5 Games for the Sony PSP has you covered.

  • Shin Megami Tensei - Persona 3 Portable

    Atlus released the ground-breaking Persona 3 originally on the PlayStation 2, but PSP owners get to experience an updated version of the classic RPG. All of the Shin Megami Tensei staples are here, but the portable nature of the game makes it even easier to pick up and level up. With new quests, Persona, and the option to play as a girl for the first time in the series, Persona 3 Portable takes a great game and makes it even better.
  • Lemines

    Even though this may look like Tetris or Columns, this puzzle game has an identity of its own. Lemines uses "skins" that change the look and sound of the game, leading to a different feel every time you play. With four different game modes, Lemines will keep you solving fun puzzles all day.
  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

    One of the coolest things about the PSP was the idea of getting to take your favorite console games with you on the go and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was one of the best. The game was originally released on the Nintendo DS but was updated for release on the PSP with better graphics and extra missions.
  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

    Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was originally called Metal Gear Solid 5 as it was supposed to be the next main game in the series. Even though Konami feels differently now, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker feels just like a console Metal Gear game. With online multiplayer and a great story, Peace Walker can keep you occupied for hundreds of hours.
  • God of War: Chains of Olympus

    Last but not least, Kratos makes an appearance on this list with the best PSP game out there: God of War: Chains of Olympus. Even though Kratos may look smaller on the PSP's screen, there's still plenty of bloody action in this game. With graphics that look almost as good as the PS3 versions of God of War, Chains of Olympus is a game that any action gamer needs to play.
