    So many games so many cliches

    The slow raising lift that enemies pile onto
    Bunch of kids out to save the world in most jrpgs
    The last boss who spawns into several forms

    Anymore?

    Dont kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, hed eat you and everyone you care about!

    This, and then yours gets hit and you crash-land, and come to groggily as enemy troops close in...

    Tunnel/bridge/corridor collapses just after you get through it making the way back impassable.

    You just have to make it through here, something happens, take this long route and kill lots of things.

    That gun, move or jump that works on everything, guess what, doesn't work on this.

    Massive arsenal taken off you halfway through the game after you get captured.

    I hate that one.

    Finding an uber-complex route into a place in which no-one's set foot for hundreds of years to find the enemy's already camped out there.

    Arduous journey through caverns and tunnels, boss fight at end, door leading back to outside world.

    I like to imagine that in all these games, somewhere out there is a haggard old man, shuffling from dungeon to dungeon, dipping the old torches in a giant barrel of pitch he carries around his neck like a St. Bernard. He's the real hero of that universe, not you.

    Whatever it is that'll save the universe has someone managed to get broken into many pieces and scattered around the world.

    No no no, it's the thing that'll doom the world that's broken up and hidden.

    I hate this one, because in some situations I think 'ah, they are suggesting that people have been here really recently', but that's never the case
