When i play video games it's like the person on the game is moving by itself whats wrong with my psp

Your PSP has a problem of stuck keys or buttons and as a result the game reads it as if you are the one directing the player on what direction to move.
There are a few home techniques which can be applied but for your convenience, it is not advised as they most times cause more damage to the PSP.
It is best advised you send it to a repairer who would have to open and reset or replace any part if the need arises.

Directional Button and L Button Problem and another problem.

I think there might be a problem with your configuration, remove all plugin then try to restore to default setting on setting menu. and/or if your psp installed Custom firmware, the umd speed are set to fast. do this via recovery menu (hold R trigger while turn on psp). you may need to fix L button if it is stuck. you may consoder sending it back to Sony for repair.You can call SONY support at 1-800-345-7669. hope this helps.
