Top Ten Video Game Rip-Offs

When a gaming company wants to have a successful and money making series, they sometimes rip off another successful video game series.

The Top Ten

PlayStation All-Stars rip-off of Super Smash Bros. PlayStation All-Stars rip-off of Super Smash Bros. Product Image

I can tell that Sony hates Nintendo after Nintendo betrayed them for making a partnership behind their back. Sony decided to rip off Super Smash Bros with instead of Nintendo characters, they use PlayStation exclusive characters such as Kratos from God of War and Sly Cooper from the Sly series.

Sony wanted to help Nintendo make a add-on to the SNES but Nintendo decided to make a deal with Phillips behind Sony's back instead - Chaotixhero

Yeah. Except I actually know who the characters are in Smash. You've got Mario, Link, Pikachu, Peach, Bowser, Ganondorf, Zelda, Samus etc.

Smash's gameplay is fast, over the top, and actually requires skill, PlayStation all stars is slow and doesn't require skill

Sony blew it by not adding characters like Crash Bandicoot and Rayman. They were PlayStation LEGENDS.

Garfield GO rip-off of Pokémon GO

When I heard of this, I lost all my respect for Garfield

That's hilarious.

Oh god.Things like this can be real

Tattoo Assassins rip-off of Mortal Kombat

Dat is terrible name

Paccie rip-off of Pac-Man
Infestation: Survivor Stories rip-off of DayZ
Raven's Cry rip-off of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Raven's Cry rip-off of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Product Image
Bubsy rip-off of Sonic The Hedgehog

Lola and look what happened! Saga knows what to do with the sonic concept! Not busy!

Sonic back in the 90s was huge then so how about rip him off? Yeah Bubsy was a bad series with the first one being better out of the four games which is not saying much at all.

Awesome Possum rip-off of Sonic the Hedgehog Awesome Possum rip-off of Sonic the Hedgehog Product Image
Bayonetta rip-off of Devil May Cry Bayonetta rip-off of Devil May Cry Product Image

Sure Bayonetta is s great game but it still rips-off another great game series known as Devil May Cry created by Capcom.

I thought they were made by the same person. I read it in gameinformer. BayonettaBayonespiritual successor, not a rip off.

I am a bit conflicted on this. Having the two game series created by the same person, Hideki Kamiya, might keep it from being a rip-off (keep in mind he stopped working on Devil May Cry after the first). I think he was trying to have another chance at that style but with a different company.

Although it may be seen as low effort on his part to attempt the same game again.

Killer Instinct rip-off of Mortal Kombat Killer Instinct rip-off of Mortal Kombat Product Image

Mortal Kombat was a very successful game series which is the reason why we have ratings up to this day. So how about ripping off a bloody game with less bloody and weak fatalities? Killer Instinct is admittedly a good game but that's no excuse.

At lest killer instinct is not overrated as mortal kombat x's kombat pack 2

Um where is saint row and Grand Theft Auto. Saint row is a rip.off of Grand Theft Auto

The Newcomers

? Overwatch Rip-Off of Team Fortress 2 Overwatch Rip-Off of Team Fortress 2 Product Image
? Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Rip-Off of League of Legends

The Contenders

Super Mario Bros 2 rip-off of Doki Doki Panic Super Mario Bros 2 rip-off of Doki Doki Panic Product Image

Not really a rip off. Great game, though.

Doki doki panic actually ripped off super mario bros 2

I wouldn't call it a ripoff, since it's more or less the same game, only that the former has been Mariofied.

ActuallAction thought that they were the same game!

Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing rip-off of Harry Potter Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing rip-off of Harry Potter Product Image
War Gods rip-off of Mortal Kombat

Well they both were made by midway.

Digimon rip-off of Pokemon Digimon rip-off of Pokemon Product Image

Digimon is an anime not a video game. Also don't be biased, if you like deeper into digimon then you'll realize that it's not a rip off.

Pokemon's just the bigger catch-them-all franchise. Besides, a lot more games with this type of genre came out before Pokemon.

Digimon came first

Still not as creative as Pokemon

Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal rip-off of Ratchet and Clank Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal rip-off of Ratchet and Clank Product Image

I like looney tunes

Battlefield rip-off of Call of Duty Battlefield rip-off of Call of Duty Product Image

Call of Duty came first. Although boyfriend 1942 released BEFORE Call of Duty 1, Call of Duty one began development first

But battlefield came first... Right?

Umm I'm not sure when I first got Call of Duty I thought they were made by the same person - Matt92647

And that's when the Sony and Microsoft war began.

Actually call of duty is the true rip off

The Legend of Elda: Mockerina of Time rip-off of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Hold on, this rip-off actually exists? Well, that's a very peculiar title for a rip-off...

I'd buy that for $500,000. No really, this is an unlicensed game that goes up for that much. And the box art is a sheet of paper with Link, the title, and both operating systems that it's compatible in to disguise which version it is. Enjoy that piece of information. - nerffan8000

Gosh, with a title like that, I could have never figured out it was a ripoff of Zelda.

Sonic Shuffle rip-off of Mario Party

Why "precious stones" instead of the famous chaos emeralds?!

I know what you mean a loot!

Except Sonic Shuffle use CARDS :D...which sucks :/

Can't be a rip off. It was co-developed by Hudson Soft.

Crush Hour rip-off of Twisted Metal Crush Hour rip-off of Twisted Metal Product Image

At least Crush Hour isn't exclusive to PlayStation

Kirby's Avalanche rip-off of Puyo Puyo Kirby's Avalanche rip-off of Puyo Puyo Product Image

Sure you can argue at me and say Dr. Robotnik mean bean machine rip it off too but the thing is, both Puyo Puyo and Dr. Robotnik mean bean machine are owned by Sega. So it's not really a rip-off if it was made by the same company but Nintendo...what a rip-off.

Vampire Rain rip-off of Splinter Cell Vampire Rain rip-off of Splinter Cell Product Image

Not just Splinter Cell but also the Metal Gear Solid series. Vampire Rain ripped off everything it could from these games, with the first most noticeable thing being the terrible combined outfit. It takes the elements that made both these series great and turns them into complete trash. As someone who actually played through the whole thing, all I can say is avoid at all costs!

Mega Man Battle Network rip-off of Pokémon Mega Man Battle Network rip-off of Pokémon Product Image

Whoever added this must have NEVER played the games. They are NOT EVEN SIMILAR. MegaMan Battle Network is not even a damn monster collecting game, sure it is an rpg but it is NOTHING LIKE POKEMON

Now if you think about it...

Whoever put this here is dumb. These two are not even alike

And a great rip-off at that.

Kasumi Ninja rip-off of Mortal Kombat
Fuzion Frenzy rip-off of Mario Party Fuzion Frenzy rip-off of Mario Party Product Image

It ripped off Mario Party. It sucks too. After all, it's a Xbox game, and we all know Xbox sucks.

Sonic rip-off of Mario Sonic rip-off of Mario Product Image

Now that I think of it, Sonic and Mario have NOTHING in common. Sonic is about speed and Mario is about saving. In Sonic, you collect rings to survive. In Mario, you collect POWERUPS to survive. Sonic doesn't have a companion, and no, Tails isn't one. The only reason they're being compared is because of the console wars between Nintendo and Sega.

Sonic is NOT a Mario ripoff. They might share some similarities but I'd argue there's more differences between both franchises. Such as Chaos Emeralds, super/hyper forms, Shadow the Edgehog, and Dr. Eggman as a villain is also arguably different to. There's also the Archie comics which add different lore altogether.

No sonic is better than Mario

Old enemy days...
