Do you have any examples of your own? In my first example, they didn't just replicate an "event" that happened in real life (Stalingrad). They were clearly inspired by a specific scene in a movie. Second, comeon do you seriously not see that Nico Bellic is wearing the exact same blue with 2 white stripes jacket. Even the brown jacket he wears underneath the blue one is the same. Third, we're not saying any of these are examples of game devs "replicating" movies but they might have drawn inspiration from them.
No need to call me an idiot..
