"There are few people who love a good console RPG more than I. Games like Final Fantasy, Grandia, and Skies of Arcadia set a standard of majesty and wonder and immersion that American game designers are challenged to match. And yet, as I play the latest masterpiece to come out of Japan I sometimes can't help the feeling that, somehow, I've seen it all before... WARNING! There are spoilers in here for many popular CRPGs. I mean, duh."

The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Clichés lists 192 trends that frequently recur in RPGs, and sometimes other genres. The purpose of this page is to find matches to existing tropes as well as provide inspiration for new ones. For performance reasons, they are split into the 8 pages below. Feel free to discuss possible matches in the discussion page or create new tropes through the YKTTW.
