Type-0 doesn't count because it is a mainline title.


Since when?
What do you think it means when a girl leaves a fake mustache at your house?

Since forever. It's part of the mythos. A game doesn't have to be on the main console to be a mainline.
Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

That's a sequel not a spin-off.

By that logic, the entire Ivalice Alliance is also mainline.

Only numbered titles and their direct sequels that use similar gameplay are mainline. X-2, XIII-2, FFIV: TAY. If the game uses completely different gameplay like Dirge of Cerberus, or FFXII: Revenent Wings, then while it still counts as a sequel, it can also be counted as a spinoff due to the genre change. That's why people often group them together as spinoffs/sequels. Calling Type-0 a mainline title is like calling Tactics a mainline title.
Stop your ignorance of Final Fantasy XI's awesome story. See it here.

Dirge of Cerberus isn't a spin-off.
Advent Children isn't a spin-off.
Lightning returns isn't a spin-off (WTF?).
Crisis Core isn't a Spin-off.


all of these are spin offs. ffx-2 is a spin off as well. none of these happened and really matter to the main game. they are fanmade.

You can't say "only numbered" titles because Versus and Type-0 are actually mainline title. And like lol. Just because they don't call a FF game with a number 1-100 doesn't mean that it is not a mainline title. Also Reverent Wings is a spin-off, that's for sure.

First of all, no, Type-0 and Versus XIII are not mainline by any definition. They have the same mythos as XIII. That's it. Also, Revenent Wings is a direct sequel to XII. If RW isn't mainline, then neither are any other sequel/prequels that don't follow the same style of the original game. You can't just pick and choose. Dirge and Crisis Core are just as much spinoffs as RW.
