5 of the Most Amazing yet Totally Unoriginal Games

Let's face it, one glance at the charts will show you that the public isn't too fussed about originality. The public wants first-person shooters, fitness games and the next FIFA or Madden. It doesn't want LittleBigPlanet (despite Stephen Fry), couldn't give a damn about Okami despite all our best efforts, and thinks Rez HD is a sleep disorder you get from those newfangled tellies.

But while some games are unoriginal to the point of lawsuits (Simpson's Road Rage, how do you plead?), there is a lot to be said for a brilliantly-made game that adds little genuinely new to the genre. In fact, some of the best games of the past 12 months have been made up of little more than old ideas cleverly repackaged to create something wonderful.

All game designers can do is take established concepts and make them better than what came before.

Okay I was wrong. I've never seen anything like Noby Noby Boy ever before :)

Did you see Giantbomb's quick look at Noby Noby Boy? Best video on the web, imo.

must be "unoriginal" as well...killswitch was out first.

I remember the last game that crossed platforming, 3rd person shooting and puzzles with great exploring segments and writing. I mean, there are just so many games.

Im so siick of these articvles from gamesradar. They say they game sucks then turn around and say its the best game ever. Seriosuly between all the killzone 2 hate articles, how MGS4 was supposedly inferior to peggle and all their other biased crap, im ready to claw my won eyes out if they make another Sh!tty article.

Seriously, ban them form this site. They belond on badjoystick because they are a joke.

mikepmcc2785d ago

They never said any of these "suck" you dolt, it says they're "amazing" right in the title. Just because something is unoriginal doesn't mean it has to be bad, which is the point he was trying to make.

You're throwing around some strong banning suggestions for someone who comments on articles they don't read. This was a well-made and well-researched article about five great games.

It's probably not your fault. Maybe you clicked on the wrong article, or maybe you didn't click on the Open Zone by accident.
