Top 10 Good Uses of Bad Video Game Cliches

The Top Ten

1 Time 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

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

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

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

Aquarium Park is an amazing level! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 Forced Failure - Crisis Core: Final Fantasy
8 Silent 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

9 Quick Time Events - Kingdom Hearts

Easy to pull off and all inspiring! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Forced Failure - Megaman X

The Contenders

11 Final Boss Themed Around the Power of Friendship - Undertale

A game around friendship yup final boss with friendship

12 Cloyingly Cutesy Characters - Cave Story
13 Insanely Evil Villains - Xenoblade Chronicles
14 Characters With Ludicrously Gigantic Plot Twists Attached To Them - Undertale V 1 Comment
15 Escort Missions - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
16 Boss 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

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