Charles Caleb Colton said Iimitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While that may ring true for many games, and some games may pay homage to great games as they execute those imitations in great style for us to appreciate and enjoy. However in this list you will find that not all the games that were ripped off were bad, in fact they were quite good and really fun to play. But there are some games just rip-off almost everything they see in the original and they just reek of plagiarism. But you have to wonder, what makes developers come up with these kind of ideas, is it profit or simply for the heck of it?

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

You know this was coming. Ever since the Shadow of Mordor’s gameplay was released, people from around the world, started recognizing the Assassins Creed/ Batman Arkham City gameplay features. Now I know that the game hasn’t been released yet and people are already criticizing the developers for ripping off gameplay features from our favorite games. But if the developers manage to execute those features well, then we may actually like the game.
