Charles Caleb Colton once said imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While there is nothing wrong with game developers paying homage to a specific game, sometimes they take things a little too far. There are some games that are so eerily similar you begin to believe there might be some copyright infringement in there somewhere. After you determine which game developer is most likely to get sued, you start to realize the game is actually just a complete rip off of a more successful game. In the world we live in, money is king and some game developers will do anything for a quick cash grab. If that means stealing the plot and features of a more successful game while passing it off as their own idea, so be it. Rarely does a rip off ever do better than the game it copied, but as you will see in this video, it happens from time to time.
From a Sonic The Hedgehog clone to a racing rip-off, there have been many copycats throughout the years. In this video, you will find not all games that were ripped off were terrible, some of them were quite good and enjoyable to play. Yes, some games copy everything from the original and absolutely reek of plagiarism, but wouldn’t you do this same if the opportunity presented itself? Either way, here are 10 video games so good others had to copy! Enjoy!
