    Ever wonder why Gameloft would imitate popular game like GTA or Halo. First they release Gangster a GTA-like game on the iPod/iPhone and now they are going to release a new game NOVA which is another imitation but this time it's Halo. What do you have to say about this. All i could say is that it's better to have these popular games on the iPod/iPhone then not have them at all.

    I wouldn't say imitation. I would just say they were inspired from.

    Yea.. it's to make money. Rockstar (GTA) or Bungie (Halo) haven't made any games for the iPhone (yet) so Gameloft takes advantage of this and 'imitates' games. They obviously can't make the games with the exact same names so they have to 'imitate' them.

    Only a mod can </thread> and it isn't capitalized.
    </thread> HA!
    OT: Gameloft does do a lot of imitations, but without them, as already stated, there wouldn't be any cool imitations like N.O.V.A.. Basically, what I am trying to say, is that the only reason I did this OT part was so that I wouldn't get a warning for being off topic.

    Yes to make money but also so we can enjoy those games on the iPhone/touch... just they wont be named the same or use the exact same gameplay... i.e. bungie havnt decided to make a halo on the iphone.. its their loss same with CoD.. although they do have CoD WaW Zombie..

    Anyways, there is already so much games on Xbox etc that it's kinda hard to create a new shooter or whatever that wouldn't be an "imitation"

    That is true but from what I've seen in the screen shots of Gameloft games, they are almost identical to that of the ones they are imitating.
