Can someone please explain to me why Final Fantasy can have so many games?

Okay so if the series are linked in the same universe or anything to do with story they fair enough, it can be named under one name with a number behind it. But Final fantasy has different story every game with new number. So how does it work? What are the things that are constant in all games except for chocobos, spell names and summons?
Playing: Nothing, maybe a bit of LoL. Am I getting old or are games this gen just mediocre?

Because it is a beloved series enjoyed by many.

Like Caius said, change is the constant. Because FF constantly tries to start anew with every main installment, SE is basically playing a game of roulette with the fans, who I don't think have come to terms with the fact that with freshness comes newness. Long gone are the medieval FFs of olde.

That's pretty much what links the FF games TC. There are recurring themes, names, creatures, spells, etc. but every time we see a different take on these various aspects.
New designs, new mechanics, new characters, etc.
That's part of the charm of this series.

Because when something is successful, you have no choice but to milk it dry.
