Wednesday seems to have come out of nowhere, but that doesn't mean that it is time to slack and not think of a list for the week. When coming up for a topic for this week's list I had a lot of ideas, but some just kept popping in the last few weeks that I have finally decided to do. What is it you ask? Well the best spinoff video games. So here they are.
5. Demon's Crest
So Ghosts N Goblins is a love hate relationship in the gaming world. Mostly because of the "ending" that really isn't an ending. That didn't stop us from getting to know Firebrand though on our SNES when we got the chance to play along with the red devil.
4. Donkey Kong Country
So in the 80s there was this game where DK was the bad guy and we had to be dodge masters. Most of you probably know nothing about it. Without this introduction we never would have got this great game and series we all love.
3. Final Fantasy Tactics
So we all know Final Fantasy. Opinions or not about the series you know it. This is one of the most influential series of all time. So in the late 90s there was this spinoff in the form of tactics which focused more on specific strategy of classes. A game to this day which is incredibly well received.
2. Portal Series
Portal is a Spinoff? Yes it is. Of Half-Life no less. Some would argue that Portal Series itself now has surpassed Half-Life in every way. Was really hard for me and my love of the series to not throw this in at number 1.
1. Mario Kart Series
Is this really a surprise? Mario Kart is known as one of the greatest series of all time it really is important to remember it is a spinoff of another amazing series. Blue shells aside it is always a fun and exciting thing to get into.
There you have it this week's list all wrapped up for you. What do you all think? Any you believe should have been included? As always let me know one way or another.
