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
Garfield GO rip-off of Pokémon GO

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

Oh god.Things like this can be real

That's hilarious.

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.

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

I know, right! It is a complete ripoff!

Yay... A PS smash bros without Crash or Spyro...

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
Awesome Possum rip-off of Sonic the Hedgehog Awesome Possum rip-off of Sonic the Hedgehog Product Image
Bubsy rip-off of Sonic The Hedgehog

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.

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

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

Bayonetta rip-off of Devil May Cry Bayonetta rip-off of Devil May Cry Product Image

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.

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.

The Contenders
Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing rip-off of Harry Potter Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing rip-off of Harry Potter Product Image
Super Mario Bros 2 rip-off of Doki Doki Panic Super Mario Bros 2 rip-off of Doki Doki Panic Product Image

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

Doki doki panic actually ripped off super mario bros 2

Not really a rip off. Great game, though.

ActuallAction thought that they were the same game!

War Gods rip-off of Mortal Kombat

Well they both were made by midway.

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

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

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...

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

Kasumi Ninja rip-off of Mortal Kombat Kasumi Ninja rip-off of Mortal Kombat Product Image
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!

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

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

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

I know what you mean a loot!

Congratulations sega, you’ve ruined Mario party

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

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

Actually call of duty is the true rip off

But battlefield came first... Right?

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.

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.

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.

Not even close.
Digimon never ripped off Pokemon but it maybe was inspired by Pokemon or maybe not but rip off? Not even close.

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!

WWE All Stars rip-off of TNA Impact: The Game WWE All Stars rip-off of TNA Impact: The Game Product Image

Do you notice how similar the gameplay is between the 2

Super Noah's Ark 3D rip-off of Wolfenstein 3D Super Noah's Ark 3D rip-off of Wolfenstein 3D Product Image

Wrong Super Noah's ark 3D is the exactly the same game as Woflenstein
