2. LittleBigPlanet (Sony Computer Entertainment)
The popular Little Big Planet (LBP) for PSP has been able to retain the spirit of the original Sony PlayStation 3 platform. Despite the fact that the PSP LBP title misses the multiplayer aspect, the game is able to successfully capture the essence with it’s upbeat tone and excellent game play.
Capturing prize bubbles over a series of levels was never so fun, and it only gets better from here on as the game sports epic levels that are visually appealing. The plus point of the Little Big Planet game for the PSP is the alluring visual and audio tracks.

3. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (Konami)
Awesome! This is how anyone who has meddled with the Metal Gear Solid would describe the game. I know, there are various superior games available for the Xbox and the Playstation console, but, for a portable device like PSP, the game is simply stunning, especially the visual effects.
With incredible game play featuring diverse activities and uniquely designed levels, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is by far the best PSP action game. Apart from the thrilling story, the game boasts of unique online multiplayer support.
As said before, the visuals are incredible and the audio is wonderfully done. No wonder this stealth action genre game has been able to hold its place firmly in the best PSP games list. A definite buy!
4. Monster Hunter Portable 3 (Capcom)
Following the massive success of the previous titles in Japan, the third installment of the game, Monster Hunter Freedom 3, comes as no surprise for the PlayStation Portable device.
Those who have played the Monster Hunter previous titles should be able to spot the new improved cooperative play and communication. The game puts the player in a breathtaking natural place where he is intended to shake his boots and battle against the ferocious monsters.
The promoters of this game have been able to ground a real life theme park in Japan, called the “Monster Hunter World.” Monster Hunter 3 proves entertaining with a decent game play experience, and this game is no exception when we talk about the best PSP games of the year 2010.
Note: Regardless of your PSP model (PSP 2000, PSP 3000, PSP 3004 and PSP Go), some of the games may not work on the 5.x and the 6.x firmware, so please make sure to check the compatibility before buying any of these games.
