    Great List. Is it just me or does the UK get to do less top 7s? Entertaining and great list. Could have put in GTA3 and every sandbox game since but I guess that would have been to easy.

    Wasn't Fighter's History the one with weapons, or did Data East make a different Samurai Shodown ripoff, too?

    Wow. I am glad that the only one of these I have ever played was a demo for the new sequel to Banjo Kazooie, which focuses more on carts and customization and exploration via carts, rather than running and jumping through the level in search of friend-saving items. I personally think that some of these games would have been destroyed in reviews if they were compared to even the ET game, but that is just my opinion. Also, @harujongil, mimicry is only flattering IF it is good mimicry, not like when Cluemaster started mimicking the Riddler in the comic (NOT the Kids WB/Cartoon Network/Boomerang TV series), and leaving easier riddles behind than Riddler did (which always made him get caught until he realized he was getting nowhere and stopped leaving clues)

    And so the SF bashing is STILL in fashion at ole GR is it? Sure the series vorrowed a shedload from, MG and the AI was, in the first game esp, retarded-however why does the , much poorer for it time all round Sc get off scott free? Arguably it borrows far more than SF did as SF is way more action heavy-and even now is about the most requested old Sony franchise by fans. I expect a Sony London/Bend game next year using 8Days and Getaway tech to shut you guys up once and for all. SC:C looks to be good as well, as it should after last times AWFUL game and a million false starts! Plus why no special 2this gen" section far all MS has ripped off? Avatars-Miis, Lips-Singstar, You're in..oh you get it the point without even touching on Natal ripping off BOTH Sony and Ninty!

    YES. I agree with musashi1596 about Syphon Filter. If you played any of the 6(?) games in the series you would know that it's a 3rd person shooter, and it's not like a single game series can copyright a particular theme for it's story.... Sorry Dave you really got this one wrong.....

    Good article but I think you were somewhat unfair with Syphon filter. About from it being an excellent game that still stands up today, the very fact that Metal Gear Solid is a primarily stealth based game, and Syphon Filter is a third person shooter with maybe one or two stealth levels kind of renders your comparison obsolete.

    @harujongil - RPGs do have similar themes, but in the same way that things like Gears of War, Halo etc will have "hardened space marines with big guns". I loved Dead Space, but it did seem a bit RE4-like at the time... But the over-the-shoulder POV works really well, so why not... And it was distinctive on its own too.

    well, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... i played about half the games on this list and i thought they were all pretty good, except for the metal gear knock-off... couldn't suffer past the first level, but that level was fun! i'm surprised there aren't any RPGs added to this list, elves, gnomes, dwarves, magic, quests... they're all the same game but with different names! but boy do i love 'em!
