I recently got a PSP at the thrift store for 39 dollars and am looking at PSP games and homebrew and so on since I plan on soft modding it. Been told it was the ultimate emulation machine.

Initial D: Street Stage is a great port of the arcade version 3. Also try out the Armored Core 3 port, Macross Triangle Frontier and Gundam Battle Universe.

I highly recommend Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. The main game is a 2.5D remake of Rondo of Blood, and you can unlock a port of Symphony of the Night with new voice acting.

Speaking of remakes, the PSP has (imo) the best version of FF4 as well as great remakes of Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics.

FFT has some framerate issues, but that can be patched if you have custom firmware.

Three totally different games: Lumines, Wipeout Pure, K-ON Houkago Live; puzzle, racing, rhythm. There's others that come to mind, but I've played these three the most, I think.

Also not sure if "*ultimate* emulation machine", but it's pretty good for what it is. That N64 works is an amazing feat technically, but it's garbage for actually playing most games, and last time I did much emulation on PSP (so, granted, 6 years ago?), SNES was a bit hit and miss, too - Mega Drive, NES, Game Boy, GBA, PC-Engine, etc. are all quite good, however.

Daxter is a surprisingly good PSP title, if you've ever played any of the Jak and Daxter games. Mega Man Powered Up is a pretty great remake of Mega Man 1, and Maverick Hunter X is a great remake of Mega Man X.

It kinda depends on what you want to emulate. Things have moved on, and newer systems can provide better emulation (3DS, Vita, more powerful Android/Windows handhelds), but the PSP's still a pretty decent option for most things. I recall SNES being a little iffy, but aside from that, I'd say most of the time you'd be hard-pressed to notice too much of a difference.
(And if you're doing Playstation emulation, I'm pretty sure it's one of your best bets!)

As far as actual PSP games, though:
- Disgaea. God, this game was such a timesink.
- Lumines II. Really, you can't go wrong with either one, but this one's soundtrack just stood out to much to me.
- Mega Man Powered Up. A neat take on the original game, and hey, level editing!

Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Gitaroo Man Lives! is my recommendation. It's a music rhythm action game with an actual story, made by the same people who made Elite Beat Agents and Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan.

I second this

The PSP port of Pangya is really fun. It doesn't have all the stages but I would definitely recommend.

PSP Pangya is alright, Disgaea is fine if you can't run it on PC.

The PSP's biggest strengths were its highly-active homebrew scene for the time. There were a lot of pretty neat things for it, but I can't remember much of them any more, unfortunately.

Riviera: The Promised Land is a port of the GBA game of the same name with remixed music, fancier backgrounds, voice acting, and, uh, thrown-through-a-generic-2x-resizer sprites. They really dropped the ball on that.

There is an unofficial Minecraft port for the PSP. The last version was actually released last year (version 2.0).

Surprised no one has mentioned Persona 3 Portable. Although Fes is probably better for a first time playthrough, FeMC was a bunch of fun to play through.

The 4 Final Fantasies, especially four, since the PSP version is the best.
