Well I though I'd make this topic on "Rip offs" of other games or movies. Basicly I want to see how far back people can rip things off. Start with the first software/game/move etc... that inspired other things like so...
Aliens inspired starcraft(Valkeries) inspired warhammer 40k (tyranids maybe)
J.R tolken inspired everthing to do with fantasy (Rest in peice J.R.)
Like that basicly. What can you think of that has inspired something or someone that has riped off something?
PS: I got this idea cause I just start watching Alien and remembered how everyone talks about how warhammer 40k riped starcraft lol.
Can't say starcraft ripped warhammer40k.
Blizzard and GW had a deal and where making the game together, but the geniouses of GW decided they didn't want to do it anymore, leaving Blizzard with the ***** halffinished. Blizzard decided to finish the game and had to change names and such, then they made millions and millions.
and gw didnt? <_<
i say that gw got the better deal.
<insert witty remark here>
Tolkein ripped off Anglo-Saxon myths...
Dungeons & Dragons ripped off Tolkein, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay ripped off D & D
things always inspire other things, you can make a good case that there is nothing new in the world.

Not quite. He was sad that there were not more english legends (Sir Gawain and the green knight) and wanted to add something substantial. Ripped off is entirely the wrong word to use.Originally posted by Sir Theobold the Lame@Aug 8 2004, 21:50

The Matrix inspired everything with bullet time.
Ravenwing: list made, now just to buy all the stuff on it (why do bikes have to be so expensive?)
just because something was "inspired" by something that came before it, it doesn't mean somebody's "ripping off" somebody else's idea. Name any movie,book,song,or video game ever made and I bet I can find something that came before it that had the same basic idea to it. It's especcialy bad in sci-fi. there's just not that many places to draw inspiration from,so you're gonna see a lot of reaccuring themes and simularities.
