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 think it’s #1 besides when Kirby gets possessed by a fr0gV 4 Comments
When I heard of this, I lost all my respect for Garfield - Drawbox
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.
ActuallAction thought that they were the same game! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Oh wow... what a rip-off. - Chaotixhero
Well they both were made by midway.
Hold on, this rip-off actually exists? Well, that's a very peculiar title for a rip-off... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
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. - TwilightKitsune
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
At least Crush Hour isn't exclusive to PlayStation
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
Pokemon's just the bigger catch-them-all franchise. Besides, a lot more games with this type of genre came out before Pokemon.
Still not as creative as Pokemon
Digimon came first
Not even close.
Digimon never ripped off Pokemon but it maybe was inspired by Pokemon or maybe not but rip off? Not even close.
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. - Chaotixhero
Battlefield came first - codydoestuffV 1 Comment
Do you notice how similar the gameplay is between the 2 - htoutlaws2012
Wrong Super Noah's ark 3D is the exactly the same game as Woflenstein - Aguythatpeopleignores
No sonic is better than mario
Old enemy days...
Marios better than sonic
Sonic was only made just because sega wanted a masgot for sega because nintendo gots mario - Aidanisawesome
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.
No offense, but didn't Doom out first - shawnmccaul22V 2 Comments
Whoever put this on the list is a dumb Sony fanboy
Just accept the truth Nintendrone.
Comment below is a nintendrone
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
Now if you think about it... - Chaotixhero
And a great rip-off at that. - PerfectImpulseX
Nintendo actually helped with Banjo Kazooie. Nintendo created Super Mario 64. Need I say more?
It's just like Pokemon but they were made by Hudson soft and atlus and they were robots.
instead of gotta catch' em all you get
Build' em Collect' em and trash' em sounds cool but u know, plus only 1 version of the game seriously Japan had 3 versions but in America there was only 1 ONLY 1, And I have know idea how to give a pokemo... I mean Robopon a tm move and hello is sunny a punch type or a fire type seriously you guys need to make a type chart for that I mean no one can tell if sunny is a punch type or a fire type and Draco's a boot type he's suppose to be a fire type cause he's red and he's a dragon make up your mind dude!
Holy type boot type and vehicles and grandpa! But hey I like that gundam robopon you got let's hope this series had a Mega Man too!
A rip off of a rip off? Seems legit
*ultra facepalm*, what in the world happened
Oh SHUT UP! Earthbound had REAL LIFE landscapes wuth cities and stuff like that and had Ness with psychic powers. Dragon Quest had midievel landscapes!
More than most of you will ever know - xandermartin98
Watch dogs and mafia series should be on this list but in my opinion saints row is better than Grand Theft Auto
They even ripped off of Robloxian 2.0 package
You realize it's intentionally similar to New Super Mario Bros U? Ever heard of the year of Luigi?
Only much worse and with modern tanks
The old enemy days...
This game is not as much as a rip off as it is a reimagining or taking a lot of inspiration from earthbound
I hate undertale
It's actually more of a tribute to Earthbound than anything else (and it's flipping awesome), but I honestly added it here just for the sake of making this list bigger - xandermartin98
It was inspired by the SNES classic!
