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
