The Burnout game for PSP. Not sure about RPGs. Maybe just mod your PSP and put FF VII on it! Yahoo!

Get Lumines. One of the best puzzle games ever.

As far as psp RPGs go Crisis Core: FFVII is really quite amazing, and so is Disgaea. Monster Hunter Freedom 2 is also amazing if you can get into it, but it's not for everyone and there is a new one coming out soon. Truthfully though, I would recommend getting a custom firmware and downloading Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger for PS1. They are the best RPGs on the system. Hope that helped!

Nah, not particularly.  It can get difficult during later stages, but it's got a pretty good learning curve, especially if you read the manual.  That's a really solid recommendation and will easily suck up a lot of time.  I'd also check out (excuse the spelling here) Jeanne d'Arc and Disgaea.

Chrono Cross is 500 mb for the first disc, I don't really know how big it is if you use a multi-disc eboot. But a 1 or 2 gig stick should be fine. Chrono Trigger is somewhat smaller. If you don't have a memory stick then Crisis Core is pretty sweet too. Not Chrono Cross sweet, but still pretty damn sweet.

I'd have to recommend Disgaea, Final Fantasy Tactics, Valkyrie Profile and/or Puzzle Quest. They're all highly addictive and enjoyable games that'll keep you occupied for a good amount of time.

Screw Disgaea or Final Fantasy Tactics and go straight for Jeanne d'Arc. You'll thank me.


You can also try Dead Head Fred, which is a 20 hour mystery-themed action game (totally awesome), or the newly released Patapon 2, if you liked Patapon. There is also the Loco Roco series, which you might like if you liked Patapon. Also be sure to pick up the PS1 Classic Suikoden, which is only 6 bucks and is undoubtedly one of the best games available this generation for the Playstation platforms.

All of the above mentioned are awesome, and LocoRoco is just.. wow.

Is Jeanne d'Arc that good ? I'll be getting a PsP soon, with the Street Fighter game but I'm also searching for a RPG or Strategy game, something that'll keep me playing for some time.

Although this is the PSP forum I must go try this at some point or another, see if I can manage to find somebody else on there to talk with.
