Random Rant: Can developers please stop copying each other

To be perfectly honest I don’t know if this is something that was announced a while back and I missed it or if it’s something recently revealed but apparently Modern Warfare 3 is going to have a survival mode.

Where you bunker down against wave after wave of enemies in ever increasing numbers and difficulty.

Or in other words it’s Horde mode but for Modern Warfare 3.

This isn’t the first time that Horde mode has been copied either with Black Ops and World at War having zombie mode but that was a little different as you kept on needing to progress through the levels to survive at least.

Then Halo: Reach also stole the idea with Firefight and as far as I was aware that wasn’t the least bit different apart from the obvious set in space idea.

It really does depress me watching developers simply steal ideas from each other instead of being inspired by them and making something truly unique of their own.

The real question here though is did Gears of War steal it from another title that I’m not aware of? If so then who really deserves the credit for one of the most entertaining add ons to shooters in years?
