I'm definitely sick of seeing "Doodle" in the title of games.

I'm also sick of

Zombie games - Why not more games where you kill Nazi's, Pirates, or Ninjas.
Match 3 games - At least until PQ2 comes out on iPad
Search and Find games - There's a reason we all grew out of reading Where's Waldo
Gameloft's IP Ripoffs - It's shame that one of the most talented iOS devs can't come up with an original idea for a game.

I don't mind the doodle themes, but I find it scary that some games have the audacity to charge a buck for a doodle skin/theme...

PapiJump came long before Doodle Jump. Doodle Jump will never admit that Papi is its clear inspiration.

I dont care about inspiration, i care about the quality of the game, which doodle jump has way more quality than papijump...and I also think too many people slam doodle games, we have a thread like this, at least, once a week.

I meant to choose "I like doodles"

Prefer gameplay over graphics.

A good / popular / successful idea is always copied. It is HOW you copy it that is the question. There are some AWFUL doodle graphics out there and there are some outstanding ones as well. It's just like anything else - good match 3's bad match 3's; good zombie games bad zombie games; you get the picture.

Implementation is key.

More annoying? Making polls about just how things are.

I know. Isn't that so annoying? I'm sure others feel the same way, too. Would you support a poll to determine how widespread the concern is?

(all in fun, of course )
