8 popular video game cliches that we’re getting tired off

Whether it’s laziness, running out of ideas, or working on a tight budget, there are many game developers out there that resort to abusing gaming clichés just to add bulk to their titles. Here are some that we hate. (Culture)

Ah glitches. Aren't they just the best?

Yea glitches are so annoying! I saw they brought up Dead Island. Bloody thing was riddled with problems. I was at the stage where I had to walk from the tribal village to the river and there were waves of zombies I needed to kill. At that point the game just glitched and I spent over an hour just running around hoping it would trigger. Ended up having to go online to play that portion in co-op otherwise I would have been a sitting duck in single player.

Isn't a glitch something that makes the game unplayable? The guy isn't listing any glitches, just things he doesn't like

Personally i'm a fan of point 5 and its a cliche i'm more than happy to endure. :)

There will always be cliches in video games and thats fine with me, I hope red exploding barrels never go away.

"we"? You mean "you"? I love sexy video game woman. As do most manly men, who are manlike in nature.

Im sorry, i want more characters like Ivy in most of my games. Obviously the more "realistic" games should feature more realistic women, but games like Soul Caliber and Mortal Kombat? No, i want busty women and barely there clothing.

I'm pretty sure no game has ever done the point 8... maybe metal gear, but they give you a reason for it.

What about the cliche of making the picture for your article a pair of giant breasts just to get hits for your website?

Hypocrisy at it's finest...
