    Default Homerun Cutscene Question for NES

    Two NES baseball titles, Bases Loaded and Tecmo Baseball, were both released in 1988 and both have roughly the same homerun cutscene. A pitcher pounds his glove on the pitchers mound while the homerun hitter rounds the bases in the background, then the hitter exchanges high-fives with a line of teammates. My question is who copied who.

    They both copied about 10,000 movies and commercials, that wasn't original to the games. It really happened in baseball a few times.

    And although Jaleco earned their reputation as a company that copies others' ideas outright, this time their game came out first, in 1987 (Moero Pro Yakyuu), and Tecmo's came out late '88/early '89.
