The plot of The Longest Journey is straight from Michael Ende's novel The Neverending Story. Many would prefer to gloss over this because The Longest Journey was a good adventure game. This is sweeping things under the carpet.

Authors frequently copy plots of other authors. That's their choice. It would still be courteous to at least give a nod to their source of inspiration (let's say), especially if they're consistently congratulated on the supposed originality of their work.
