The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Cliches

The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Cliches

One of my favorites from this wonderfully long list:

Logan's Run Rule
RPG characters are young. Very young. The average age seems to be 15, unless the character is a decorated and battle-hardened soldier, in which case he might even be as old as 18. Such teenagers often have skills with multiple weapons and magic, years of experience, and never ever worry about their parents telling them to come home from adventuring before bedtime. By contrast, characters more than twenty-two years old will cheerfully refer to themselves as washed-up old fogies and be eager to make room for the younger generation

If you've ever played any RPG game, then this list will make you laugh. Quite a few of these extend into more modern games such as WoW and Everquest.

Click through, reminisce, and enjoy.
