To add another pillar to the foundation of the tower of desperate arguments against the PSP, a slew of genres that supposedly “Don’t work” with the PSP’s controls were rose as to say that it’s lack of similarity to a PS2 controller makes certain important genres of games way more work than they’re worth to play on the PSP.
This issue was largely spoken of because the Playstation Portable lacks a few control-based components that the Playstation and Playstation 2 have; mainly being a second analog, the second left and right triggers, and the L3/R3 buttons that were enabled by pressing into the analog sticks.
While the PSP certainly does lack these, something a lot of people forget is that the Nintendo 64 also lacked the same, but pulled off every genre well. That’s not our focus for today though, but rather to make a list of games that prove their genre is doable on the PSP.
