New to PSP, need advice on games

#1 Posted by liammk (6 posts) -

I'm planing to get a PSP Go for the persona games, but I was wondering what other games should I get.
 
P.S are the persona games even gonna be available on the psp go?

First of all yes. Persona 3 Portable is availiable in UMD and download. OI think the Persona remake is also in download. Is their any specific genre of games you like?

I would prefer games with a good story are loooong (ex: ones that last 99 hr and 59mins) othere than that, maybe really arcady ones

God of War lasted me about 3 hours. Don't get it. Waste of money.

@liammk: The Final Fantasy and Disgaea series should last you a while. Along with Jeanne D'arc, Pirates and maybe Castlevania.

I agree with this. 
 
Here's the ones that I own: 

Personal PSP Collection

My collection for the console i was most hesitant to get

 
 
 
 
 
 
1. Lumines II Lumines is a must-own for PSP fans. I don't know whether the first or second is better or why.
2. SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs - Fireteam Bravo Probably the best shooter on the platform
3. Me & My Katamari Even though it can hurt at times without the other control stick, it is still a ton of fun
4. Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower Good little fighter if that's your thing. only rivaled by Soul Calibur on the PSP
5. Madden NFL 08 Its... not that good. Don't bother
6. Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth Great RPG if that's your thing
7. PaRappa the Rapper A classic rhythm game that should be in everyones collection
8. Tekken: Dark Resurrection A good fighter, though not as good as Soul Calibur
9. God of War: Chains of Olympus ehhhhhhhhhhh
Other games worthy of buying for the PSP: 
Jeanne D'Arc 
Final Fantasy I and II (available in one package for the GBA) 
Riviera (available for the GBA) 
Disgaea (available for the PS2 and DS) 
Soul Calibur Broken Destiny 
Yggdra Union (also available for GBA)  
Final Fantasy Dissidia
 
Not as good: 
God of War 
daxter 
Killzone 
Resistance 
That makes it sound like i'm telling you to not buy all the popular playstation series, but thats not it at all. These games just don't transfer to the handheld well at all. Rent them if you are really interested, but don't go in expecting much
