Top Ten Video Game Rip-OffsChaotixhero 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
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. - Chaotixhero
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
I know, right! It is a complete ripoff!V 1 Comment
Lola and look what happened! Saga knows what to do with the sonic concept! Not busy! - HeavyDonkeyKong
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. - Chaotixhero
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. - Chaotixhero
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
Sure Bayonetta is s great game but it still rips-off another great game series known as Devil May Cry created by Capcom. - Chaotixhero
I thought they were made by the same person. I read it in gameinformer. BayonettaBayonespiritual successor, not a rip off. - HeavyDonkeyKong
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. - FirearmsKill
Not really a rip off. Great game, though.
I wouldn't call it a ripoff, since it's more or less the same game, only that the former has been Mariofied. - drdevil
ActuallAction thought that they were the same game! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Oh wow... what a rip-off. - Chaotixhero
Now if you think about it... - Chaotixhero
Well they both were made by midway.
At least Crush Hour isn't exclusive to PlayStation
Although the Final Fight inspiration is pretty obvious, SoR is still awesome though, especially the music. - drdevil
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. - Chaotixhero
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! - FirearmsKill
Why "precious stones" instead of the famous chaos emeralds?!V 3 Comments
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? - HeavyDonkeyKong
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. - ChaotixheroV 1 Comment
Do you notice how similar the gameplay is between the 2 - htoutlaws2012
Pokemon's just the bigger catch-them-all franchise. Besides, a lot more games with this type of genre came out before Pokemon.
I always say that some stupid digimon (poopemon) rips off of Pokemon!V 1 Comment
No offense, but didn't Doom out first - shawnmccaul22V 2 Comments
Why is this a rip-off? There's no beam, no slimes, no anything. It's well creative at best. Not to mention the Boo Pun once you encounter the first Boo in every room. - MrEmerik2000
Gameplay wise they are different. But the idea however, they rip-off...pretty badly. And you know what else? This is actually the weakest of the storm series. Ninja storm 3 improved but then Revolution came and it when a few steps back. Let's see if Ninja Storm 4 becomes a blast - Chaotixhero
I always think Poke Generations (that new card set) ripped of Sonic Generations.
