The biggest cliche(& franchises in general)that should die are jrpgs since they are all the same fucking unoriginal shit for virgins until death & beyond losers who jerk off to whiny anime girls since they will never see a real woman,but these are just games,they don't need to be realistic,these are facts.

Checkpoints in PC games. I understand it on console. You need to pause, find the option and then save. It takes some time as well. But PC? Quick save/load?? It's really annoying.

unskippable cutscenes. x_x I love the game Detroit: Become Human, but at some point of you playing this you just wish you COULD skip some scenes. :'D I want to complete the game in 100% of all the chapters, but I'm forced to see some of the cutscenes over and over and over again, because some chapters just stay the same. Especially the ones in the beginning of the game. :'D

Your so right about the cutscene thing. I like to replay missions in battlefield 1 but I have to sit through the very long cutscenes at the beginning. So annoying.

'Escort DJ solom to your nightclub' literally Rockstar added this in the After hours update couple weeks ago. Oh by the way this is like 1/100 other escort mission in GTA V

Three and a half of these are done for budgetary reasons. It costs a lot to animate enemy weapons for the player when they're so different like that Katana. So does taking the effort to replace every single segment of the invisible wall with something naturally-looking. Swimming also eats-up a lot of budget.

Here is one. Getting put in a bad behavior server on GTA 5 for acting as a criminal and blowing up other people's cars in self-defense when they try to run you over. I already have to pay thousands of dollars in in-game currency because I did it but is it really bad behavior when the game is about being a criminal and you act like one. What was Rockstar thinking? It was "Oh I know. We'll make a game about being a criminal with multiplayer. So we can deal with player complaints before it happens, anyone that blows up a player car, even if you do it in self defense, will get put in a server with other people that do that on purpose. We'll call it the bad behavior server." What in the names of the nine circles of fuck is that? I mean the game is about being a criminal, which is bad behavior in and of itself but you get put in a bad behavior server for what? Being a criminal and blowing up a person that is trying to kill you with his car by running you over? Man, miss me with that fucking bullshit! I don't know how many times I was warned not to blow up a car after paying thousands of in game dollars to replace the car that I destroyed. It's as if the game is designed to piss you off at all levels of the game.

I hate escort/protect this person missions. Cause the person you are supposed to escort/protect is like a bullet magnets and all enemy AI think your invisible or don't even exist and go straight for them instead. Something else I hate is when you are forced to have a partner AI that is absolutely useless, which the enemy AI also ignore and apparently never see or even care about, or they die with a single hit. The Lego games are notorious for having a partner AI that the enemies always ignores and never helps you. And the Gears games have the partner AI that can't seem to hit the broad side of a barn and constantly run out to their deaths.

I LOATHED the invincible door thing in games, ESPECIALLY in Resident Evil! Here's an example, (you need blue key to open, blah,blah,blah.). Well, nothing a well-placed foot can't fix! Also your'e SUPPOSED' partners' just standing there while you get splattered all over the walls because of bull-s&%# odds or what have you! Just recently, I was like, 'HEY, do you mind actually HELPING me over here'!

I F&*@#%# HATED not being able to swim in Grand Theft Auto! You are a criminal in that game, but not being able to swim, BULL-S&%#!

Number 0- .... Silent protagonists: Seriously when i play a videogame with a story i mainly want to care about the protagonist, i want to know how the main character would feel in certain situations and even though the goal of the developers is that *you* are the character for making the game more inmersive i never feel like that because the character doesn't have any emotions. If they are going to make a silent protagonist at least let him speak by his actions and not making them completely silent and boring like Corvo Attano in Dishonored 1.

In gta 3, the water has some deadly chemical in the liberty city ocean, so you can't swim. In gta vice city, the water is completely infested with sharks, so you can't swim. In gta San Andreas, the water not toxic or infested with sharks, so the water is safe and clean. so that's why you can swim in San Andreas.

what about thin sheets of glass with an NPC behind them? what's that, you have a gun that can blow up capitol ships in one shot and wipes entire cities off the map? Well this 1/2 inch piece of melted sand is sure as hell going to stop you from saving that scientist from that alien currently trying to eat his face.

These aren't even the worst offenders, cliché-wise. Most of them are in story-writing or world-mechanics. Think about all the times you go to pick up a conspicuously-placed item, or grab some loot that turns out to be surprisingly valuable: 90% of the time, my first thought is now to turn around to see what's going to attack me from behind because it feels like a trap. Walking into a space with canyon-like high, open, walls? Trap. Sound effects: the spooky whisper, ' soft voices are all around me' effect to connote the supernatural is grossly overused. Protagonist design: Generic McWASPy white* person. In games where you can choose race, gender etc (not rooted in fantasy), the implied cultural background is still almost always interchangeably-similar with a vast assortment of other games. (*When race can be changed from white, white is still often the base/initial default to start the model from. Character cultural background remains unfailingly to appeal to white people.) Reliance on same base core of 80s action/thriller movies & 20th c sci-fi + fantasy lit for thematic + aesthetic inspiration. With the exception of Japanese designers and games which explicitly parody those genres, this is almost uniform across the industry. . . These are just what strike me at the top of my head (and am willing to bother with typing on YouTube, through a phone), hardly scratching the surface of what could be pointed out, here.

Number one on this list should be the idiotic idea that games have to be played on consoles and even if you're one of those inhuman creatures (within 35 seconds the voice-over already says those who play ArmA - which of course is a PC exclusive - are not real people) called PC Gamers you should still be playing your games with a controller, instead of the far superior combination of keyboard and mouse. When the voice-over asked who'd want to manually reload every single shotgun shell by tapping X over and over again I was like: "WTF? What the hell is this idiot saying? X? Who the hell binds the X key to reloading, instead of R?" Yeah, of course... He's talking about the X button on gamepads that those console "gamers" use.
Now that I think about this... good guys only story mode is really lazy... I mean look at star wars knights of the old republic? great game, story line and most of all able to choose light or dark side. if you just play good guys all the time, it gets very dull!
