8. Monster Hunter Freedom
Monster Hunter Freedom demands the best from you. It requires cunning, patience, and the ability to take a beating and return for more. For those willing to tackle its challenge, however, it's also one of the most rewarding experiences on the PSP.
Taking its lead from Monster Hunter G, Freedom is a massive monster-hunting game full of prey who will put your warrior through hell and back. You can try mashing your way through early-game bounties, but bigger enemies require experimentation and expert planning. That said, the genius of Monster Hunter Freedom is you'll want to keep trying, not just to reap the in-game rewards, but to soak in that rare sense of accomplishment you only get from looking genuinely tough foes in the face and living to tell the tale. This sense of gratification extends to the game's multiplayer mode, where you can meet in the Online Gathering Hall and find glory and treasure as a group. Still, whether you decide to go it alone or drag along friends, Monster Hunter Freedom is a tale you'll be telling your virtual kids for years.
