Good PSP games for 9-yr old kid

Any suggestions for PSP games for my 9-yr old. I know GTA and Burnout are great games, but they're more suitable for older kids and adults.

Lumines is probably one. Any others?

Thanks!

Well, if you let a 9-yr old play with a PSP, you're a braver man than I. Having said that, Hot Shots Golf is easy, cute and lots of fun. That would be the first one I'd pick up for someone that age. Burnout should be playable for him as well. No way that kid should play GTA, though.

Burnout Legends is suitable, for sure, and a very good and addictive game as well. It's rated E-10+ (For Violence), but the violence is only inflicted on cars. There is no profanity in the music tracks, only bad thing about the music is that it might push him in the direction of crappy music.

Gripshift
Crash Tag Team Racing
Hot Shots Golf
Gretzky '06
Lumines
Tony Hawk Underground 2 Remix


Also, coming in the next 2-3 months:

Exit
Me and My Katamari
Mega Man

I'm sure there are a handful of others. Is he into sports games? Racing games? Fighting? RPG? Adventure? Puzzles?

I highly recommend getting familiar with the ESRB rating system if you're going to be buying games for your child and you want to know what is in the games you are purchasing. You can even look up game ratings on that website.

For instance, Burnout Legends is rated E-10+, and next to the rating is a list of reasons why it's rated so. In this case it just says Violence.

For Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the rating is M (For Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, and Use of Drugs).

Does he (or she) already have a DS? My kids (10 and 12) are not interested in my PSP at all (which is a good thing considering how fragile the system is compared to the DS). The only games that my oldest played are Ape Escape and Burnout Legends' Crash modes, and I let my youngest watch Pirates of the Caribbean while we went on a bus trip.

I have a Nintendo DS with about 5-6 kid friendly games if you want to trade.
