Top 10 Good Uses of Bad Video Game Cliches

The Top TenXW

1Time Limits - The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask

The 3 days to the destruction is by far the best thing in Majoras Mask. Entire sidequests are build around this and it makes the story fantastic. - CastlevaniaFanboy128

2Escort Missions - Ico
3Quick Time Events - No More Heroes

Packed right in the combat and the finishers it makes the combat more interesting the entire time. - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4Water Levels - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
5Escort Missions - Bioshock Infinite
6Water Levels - Sonic Colors

Aquarium Park is an amazing level! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7Forced Failure - Crisis Core: Final Fantasy
8Silent Protagonists - Bioshock

Imagine if Jack would talk your ear off the entire time. But because he did'nt the twist seems that it is happening
To you! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

9Quick Time Events - Kingdom Hearts

Easy to pull off and all inspiring! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

11Cloyingly Cutesy Characters - Cave Story
12Final Boss Themed Around the Power of Friendship - Undertale
13Insanely Evil Villains - Xenoblade Chronicles
14Characters With Ludicrously Gigantic Plot Twists Attached To Them - UndertaleV1 Comment
15Escort Missions - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
16Boss Rushes - Mega Man X5

We've seen this all before, fight every robot master again just like every other Mega Man game before, right?
Well not exactly. Here the bosses all have larger health bars, this raises the stakes and really tests the player.

If you ask me, the only game I remember, which had good boss rushes was Kid Icarus: Uprising - CastlevaniaFanboy128

17Making Fun of Pop Stars - Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
