Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but Bizarre Creations isn't feeling very flattered about Grid Wars.

As I'm walking through the packed lobby of the Los Angeles Convention Center heading toward the West Hall, I see a huge Xbox 360 setup with a screen the size of a theater canvas boasting Geometry Wars.
