Gameloft Clones: A Good Thing.

Well, I've posted a couple Gameloft clone threads, and have come to a "Big Idea" question: Are Gameloft clones a good thing? I say yes. If it wasn't for Gameloft, the Iphone gaming scheme might still be a small, independent workshop thing. If it wasn't for clones, we might not have these games we've come to know and love on the Iphone. Liked Modern warfare? Get it on the Iphone. Liked HALO? Get it on the iphone. Really, people think that they are just cloning big-name games for the profit, but seriously, I think it's great to have these console-like games on the iPod. What do you think?

I think you are absolutely right, besides I don't really think N.O.V.A. could even compare to a clone the only thing it has in common is aliens and armor. It was only hyped as a Halo clone, but it's still a great game.

Is being a queer and asking incessant, meaningless questions a good thing?

I find it hard to believe that someone is 'hacking' your account to make threads.
