Honorable mention goes to the Dynasty Warriors games, which I do like, but are nowhere nearly as good as either Hyrule Warriors or Dynasty Tactics.

The Dynasty Warriors series itself is a spin-off of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series though (which if you like Dynasty Tactics you should totally check out!). So that would be a spin-off of a spin-off?

Not unusual to see spin-off of spin-off.

Not sure I'd really count Persona. I mean it seems to have surpassed Shin Megami Tensei and become a much bigger series than it. Plus are they even that related, other than by name? Although if you do count it then that. Not that I dislike SMT, I've just never played it (and never will unless it starts releasing on PS/PC).

They share the same demons. Jack Frost is in them and some entires let you recruit demons in the part like SMT. Older Persona dungeons are similar. Until Persona 5 they were called Shin Megami Tensei: Persona

I don't like soccer in general (or don't care about sports in general) but I remember getting into Fifa Street with my cousin for a couple of days. Don't like Fifa in general, but the first game had a very arcade-like flow to it, si we played it quite a bit.

Ahh, nice example. I wasn't really coming up with anything, but in this same respect, I don't care for sports games but I very much enjoyed and played a lot of the NBA Street games (or at least the PS2 versions, didn't play the others).

Halo Wars for the Halo series.

I wasn't sure if Dynasty Warriors was a spinoff or if they were just drawing on the same period of history. 

I did play Romance of the Three Kingdoms back on the NES, and I believe it was actually a spinoff of Nobunaga's Ambition.  In that case Dynasty Tactics would be a spinoff of a spinoff of a spinoff.



Mario Kart 8. After Galaxy I've disliked all the main Mario games up to Odyssey, but I do love me some Mario Kart.



I enjoy Dragon Quest Heros, Hyrule Warriors, and Fire Emblem Warriors a lot. I will probably also really enjoy P5S when it comes to the west as well.

I do not like Dynasty Warriors however. I used to co op DW2 on PS2 with a friend in high school, but after that I could never get into them again. And yes I have tried, but they always felt bland compared to the spin offs.

I do not dislike Might & Magic RPGs, I just never cared enough about the series to play one of them.
I do not dislike Halo, but I don‘t play shooters.

I love Heroes of Might & Magic 3.
I enjoyed Halo Wars.
