Newsflash: 3D Dot Game Heroes is not just a Zelda rip-off

You know what I'm sick of? The idiots who are writing off From Software's 3D Dot Game Heroes because they have no concept of irony and can only see a "Zelda rip-off." These people are stupid and can't see an inch in front of their faces.

For those who don't know, 3D Dot Game Heroes is a brilliant looking PS3 parody that pays homage and pokes fun at 8-bit adventure games, with The Legend of Zelda serving as a clear foundation. It's supposed to have the same look and feel as an old Zelda game. That's the point and that's the joke. It's looking like it'll be a blast and the design is absolutely gorgeous.

Calling 3D Dot Game Heroes a rip off of Zelda is like saying that The Naked Gun rips off James Bond. Part of the fun of the game is the fact that it does play like Zelda. If you're going to write the game off just because you don't have a sense of humor, you're a fool to yourself. You're also probably the same kind of person that thinks everybody who is British is just trying to copy Yahtzee. 

Anyway, there's a new gameplay video that you can watch after the jump. A few of you won't be able to look past the deliberate similarities and whine about plagiarism. Don't worry though, it's just that you're an imbecile. Your mother won't love you any less.
