Video Game cliches

Recommended Posts

I was talking with my mate the other day about them things that seem to pop up time and time again in games:1. The invisible wall, why do so many games have an invisible wall?!?! Surely there's a better way of keeping the gamer in the right place. 2. Boss fights, why do bosses always have a 'pattern' to their attacks, and guaranteed 9 times out of 10 there'll be some kind of projectile throwing end of level boss that requires you to deflect said projectile back to its source. Also final games bosses quite often require you to beat slightly weaker versions of all the other bosses u fought earlier in the game!3.EXPLODING BARRELS why the f*ck in EVERY game i've ever played is there barrels that blow up? What are they filled with and why on earth were they just left lying around, normally next to a conveniently weak piece of wall that when gone opens up a path to EXACTLY where u needed to go.I know there's more, add ur own!

Random food on the floor, who left them thereYou think you have seen the last of the boss, but they always come back bigger and stronger. Bowser is the king of this.A Princess always goes missing"that guy" LevelFire LevelPress A to start, why have a start button then ??????Heroes village always destroyed, your last survivor Collecting, rings money stars

A classic one for RPGs, just wander into a random person's house and go up to them, instead of saying "wot the f*ck are u doing in my house?!?!?" They drop some bars about their son moving away to join the army or some sh*t!

When you can block bullits and explosions just by pressing back.When every female character has that perfect form, wears skin tight clothes or hardly any clothing at all.... On the "that guy" level.The ultimate cliche tho is when they couldnt come up with a name for their big f*ck*ng gun so they just called it a BFG.
