A friend of mine will be coming home from Japan in a few months and told me to come up with a list of any games I want while he's still there. Are there any (good) games that are fairly easy to play without knowing Japanese, or even ones that have an English option?

I'll also take any suggestions for Gameboy, GBA, DS, PSP and Vita (the only other region free systems I own).

Thanks

I dont think any U.S. Playstation 3 console can play any Japanese import games. Even the Super Slim Playstation 3 consoles are only Region 1

It can. Problem is if you want DLC and such, you'll need a JP account.

PS3s are regionless for PS3 games, or more specifically, all but about 2-3 PS3 games have no region lock on the game. They still enforce the region lock on PS1 and PS2 games.

Yeah I'm getting a copy of Suikoden II simply out of principle (I love the series) even though I have no way of playing it.

Still Pokemon Green sounds like a great idea so I will definitely try to get a copy of that!

Ketsui is a shmup by Cave that is great and easy to play. IIRC, the menus are in English too. You might want to read some quick guide on the mechanics but these exist online. It's a short game if you're not into higher difficulties and trying to perfect yourself though.
