In playing Sleeping Dogs I’ve noticed something very peculiar; this game borrows a lot from other games. Although true, it also does a lot on its own to become quite different. So on this week’s edition of the TSFT Podcast, we’re going to talk about borrowed mechanics. Many games feel the same, and some are able to execute these elements differently, but some are just blatant copies. We’ll talk about games that do this well, and games that are blatant ripoffs.
