      Great list! I would have put Final Fantasy Tactics a spot or two higher personally but other than that I can't complain about your ordering, great taste in PSP games.

      Don't forget one of the early titles that kick started everything. I doubt PSP would've gotten off the ground so fast if not for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. It was the first time people would get a chance to see the classic game in updated graphics and from a new branch of the story. FFVII has a mystique that is still alive to this day. So when PSP released not just a game with its name on it, but an actual GOOD game with an engaging story.
