Troy Bond of TheGameReviews has compiled what he feels is a list of the ten best spin-off games ever made, with entries including Mario Kart, Portal, and The Typing of the Dead.
Pharaoh's an interesting choice but good call. It was a great game :) And I loved Typing of the Dead! Such a clever concept.
Final Fantasy Tactics and soon Final Fantasy Versus Persona Series: a spinoff from SMT
I don't think Persona is so much of a spinoff as it is a completely separate universe that deals with similar themes. I mean there's no real connection between games beyond the use of many of the same demons and the name. By that standard, every Final Fantasy is a spin-off.
Definitely agree with Tactics. Not sure if it really counts as a spin-off though since technically every Final Fantasy title is a standalone game.
Don't agree with Typing of the Dead being on this list. Just because the game knows that it is terrible doesn't stop it actually being terrible. Self-awareness is no justification.
Have you ever played it? Typing of the Dead was one of the most quirky, fun and unique titles to hit the Dreamcast, which was a console full of quirky, fun and unique titles. Fantastic game that still holds up. I like it much better than House of the Dead.
Typing of the Dead is awesome! It's the only reason why I can type so fast. That and playing Counter-Strike w/ out a mic
god i love portal. fell in love with it the second i started playing it. and it instantly fell into my top five.
thank god for portal.
Mario Kart and Unreal Tournament have done the most for me
I cant see the list, The page won't fully load for me but if I had to choose 1. Top of my list Crash Team Racing probably
Warcraft III > World of Warcraft
In terms of gameplay and storyline, I agree with you.
