Few years ago a YT channel listed top 10 RPG clichés. I checked them and compared with KCD.
Link to video:
10. Blackhole backpack
Not in KCD. You are limited by weight and horse saddle. Even when backpack is little bit bloated, you are quite limited.
Nope. You cannoy play as healer, mage
Heroes get away with anything.
Not really, even when you dont get executed.
Well, game worlds are limited. Second hit.
Rats, bats, spiders and skeletons.
No generic critters here.
The chosen one.
1.No one else can do anything
Hmm. Some events go further without you, if you ignore them. I can say its a hit or miss
I would say “No” but I would accept at least half a point.
- Oversized weapons (nope)
- skimpy armor (nope, hope Theresa wont get something impractical)
- Magic stomach syndrome (nope)
So out of 10 cliches, KCD contains only two and a half. That why people say its like a fresh air.
