saints Row is more of a game influenced by GTAIII

the rest of those games are BLATANT rip offs and are teetering on lawsuits!!

"Someone better get this kamikaze wimp, an ambulance!" has just become a MEME!!

If your referring to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale I cant wait for that game either as Super Smash Bros is one of the best fighters ever made and now we get to play it with PlayStations fantastic and ecletic charactor range. As rip-offs go this one is looking like it could be a lot of fun, see you in the arena buddy.

I assume you love the PS3 as just quickly looking through your comment history (didn't read anything much just noticed PS3 was in almost every comment you made) it's pretty much all you talk about.

My PS3 is a great Blu Ray player thank you very much. I play my games on my 360 though. Besides God of War, and Uncharted.

I was agreeing with this list until I seen number 1. Saints Row is not a rip off of GTA. Only GTA fanboys and those who haven't played Saints Row think it is.

Using this site's logic, every FPS available today is a rip off of Wolfenstein 3D. Just because they are in the same Genre does not mean a game is a rip off of another. It's stupid logic to think so.

I undertand what u said and respect it,im also a diehard gta fan and i absolutely love sr, have all 3 game, beat them all, had tons of fun (and still is) but with all honesty, saints row is a shameless copy of GTA, from the moment i played the demo of SR1, i was shocked by how everything was similar to gta, the radio stations, the DJ's, the ads, the lines your character say, the strong similarity between saints row 2 and san andreas, i remember one character was basically a copy from Ryder from san andreas, the the voice, the lines etc...

I love Saints Row and I think it is a GTA "rip off" a very good one and I look forward to playing more games like it.

Good list, just shows what games can be created from a good idea.
