Battles among fruits, ninja, birds, zombies and....

Recently, we've seen a bunch of games with characters like the followings:
1:___+birds
2:Angry+___
3: ___+zombies/zombies+___
4:__+ninja/ninja+___
5:Tiny+____
......(you may give more)

Do you feel bored of this trend? Or, you just only choose games with the above titles? And what character(s) do you expect in a game?

Yeah, and I especially hate it when people completely copy an app and almost use the same exact name.

People like repeating others for success....Can all of them just have some creativity?

Yes those games have similar names and those game-developers just need to hire someone who has a great creativity to come up with fresh names. Nevertheless, the names actually don't matter much as the most important part is the gameplay. If it's enjoyable and addictive, that's fine.

True. But this phenomena really needs a change. Game-developers can just come up with some new names.

And yet I bet a certain percentage of them won't.

Think beyond the appstore to popular trends:

At the moment -- Zanybandz vs Sillybandz vs Shape Bandz vs Silly Bands.........

People anywhere are going to latch onto what they appear is a popular trend that will help them in their "get rich quick" scheme.

Agreed. Take Angry Birds for an instance, with its instant success, it's now getting bigger and bigger and begins to develop many other branches in the market to get rich quick which seems the core value.
