  1. What about Super Smash Bros.(1999) and GoldenEye 007 (1997) and even Dance
    Dance Revolution (1998)? I am pretty sure there were so may companies tried
    to clone one of these games, especially for PlayStation All-Stars Battle
    Royale (2012) [Super Smash Bros clone] and Pump it Up (1999) [Dance Dance
    Revolution clone].

  2. Doom is on here because it started FPS games (Wolfenstein 3D came out first
    though so you’re wrong again)
    That’s like saying the Witcher 3 is a clone of Skyrim because Skyrim came
    first and they’re both RPGs.

    A clone of a game is like all those CoC and Minecraft games on the app
    store… Which leads onto another thing, where’s Clash of Clans.
