SomePersonYouHate
Ways to die in a videogame that are honestly kind of stale after a while. Some of these you might agree with and some of these you might disagree with.

The Top Ten

1 Getting crushed to death from either a person, machine or object

Oh, come on, being crushed to death by a car is hilarious still. - mattstat716

Quite honestly the most cliche way to be killed off in a videogame. - SomePersonYouHate

Well, most of these aren't cliché and more "logical". I mean, who is going to survive being crushed by a car that just fell from a height? You'd have to be Kent Clark or something. - Swellow

They're "cliche" because they're nearly done to death. I'm not saying you could survive any of these deaths but they do get old after a while. You're kind of looking too deep into it... - SomePersonYouHate

2 Falling into spikes

Basically almost every platformer video game (Including Mario games) has spikes you can die from (Most of the time from falling on them) - christangrant

Cliche and boring after a while. - SomePersonYouHate

Mortal Kombat. - egnomac

Why does a chemical factory have loops and spikes?
Why is there a lush green land with spikes on the ground?
Who placed them there? Why are they there? What purpose do they serve?! - mattstat716

3 Falling to your death from a far height

Instantly thought of Nathan Drake from Uncharted. This happens a lot to him. - cjWriter1997

Happens in a majority of action/ adventure videogames. - SomePersonYouHate

Mario... - Neonco31

4 Getting stabbed in the heart by either a sword, knife or other sharp object

This one is PAINFULLY cliche to say of the least. - SomePersonYouHate

v v cliche - EliHbk

5 Getting decapitated

Very brutal way to go I might add. Poor Leon from RE4 has gotten his head decapitated many times. - cjWriter1997

Very... very cliche I'll add. - SomePersonYouHate

Boring! - mattstat716

6 Getting stabbed in the throat

Especially if it's by a knife or sword. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Getting electrocuted

Kind of cliche in all honesty. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Someone that betrays you kills you

Not just a video game cliche but in a general annoying cliche. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Getting shot in the head

Mainly in FPS games. - SomePersonYouHate

360 NO SCOPE HEADSHOT MLG PRO
Sorry I couldn't resist - cjWriter1997

10 Being blown up into pieces

One of the most cliche ways to be killed in a videogame - SomePersonYouHate

Pffft. Not always boring. - mattstat716

The Contenders

11 Getting One-Shotted

Getting killed in only one shot by an enemy, regardless if your health is full. Happens a lot if you don't expect what if coming. - CrimsonShark

12 Getting killed in a Quick Time Event.

I mean, in most games, you don't even see a QTE coming. And when it does, you're too late to react in time and by the time you're horribly mutilated and the loading screen comes up, all you're left to say is "Well that was cheap". - CrimsonShark

GOD I hate QTE moments like this that are important that you die if you don't do them. - SomePersonYouHate

13 Burning

Fire isn't even fun, it's just annoying. Like a life-stealing debuff.
Same thing, different look. Annoying. - mattstat716

14 Falling out of a plane or a space ship
15 Falling of a cliff or a mountain
16 Getting eaten by any kind of animal
