What's your favourite Final Fantasy spin-off?

Mystic Quest and Legends sadly (which both aren't very good) if you can't put down Tactics.

Kingdom Hearts and the FF7/10 spin-offs are cancerous to me.

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.


Same logic applied to the Crystal mythos of FF's 1-5 would suggest 2-5 are spinoffs.

Your move bucko.

Except it can't because 2-5 are II, III, IV, and V respectively and by definition are mainline and thus cannot be spinoffs. Your argument doesn't even make sense anyway and is in no way the same logic. It is not the fact that they share a mythos that makes them spinoffs. It's the fact that they are not numbered games, have completely different gameplay, and have nothing to do with any mainline games other than the mythos that makes them spinoffs.

Define what a mainline title is peon.

Just because they don't have a roman numeral does not mean it is excluded.

And different gameplay isn't viable as an argument.

As all FF's have different iterations.

Type 0 has all the elements that a mainline game has.

And besides. GILGAMESH has a large role in the game. And you know that he is a large mainline mainstay character.

Crystal Chronicles. Even though it's too damn hard.


Also my favourite, but hard?


It's hard in the sense that I have no idea how to get the most points on each level, so I always end up with the worst possible rewards.

So.....every FF game is mainline then? Seriously. How would you define a spinoff?

Having a roman numeral makes a game mainline. That's what mainline means. The main lineup of the series. Meaning the numbered core titles. Obviously this can be extended to direct sequels like XIII-2 that share the same style, director, writer, designer, etc.

Sequels like Revenent Wings, Dirge of Cerberus, and Crisis Core have different styles, and different development teams. Hence the sequel/spinoff title.

Type-0 is its own original world and gameplay style. It's a full blown spinoff like Tactics and Crystal Chronicles.

Do you honestly believe that GILGAMESH can be contained in just the mainline games alone? Of course he graces spinoffs with his presence. He was in Revenent Wings too.

Revenant Wings is a direct sequel to XII.

Tactics also resides in the world of Ivalice which is far in the future of XII.

Type 0 is mainline in that it retains all classic FF elements and has it's own original world.

Crystal Chronicles is a subseries.

Your notion of a mainline title being determined by a mere number is a mere asinine fanmade connotation you have concocted in relation to the FF series.

No it isn't. It's the simplest and most stable definition of mainline or main series.
1-14 are the mainline FFs and everything else isn't.
