That's not a sequel to anything, is it?

Don't worry, that doesn't spoil much, and isn't the only possible outcome.

It's a follow up to Conker's Pocket Tales (GB Color) but doesn't exactly follow as a sequel.

That's the way I was thinking. Apparently after Pocket Tales, Conker started going out to bars and staying late, which is where Bad Fur Day picked up.

Anybody want to continue this? 3 answers have been given, but only one accepted (best I can tell).

Rich, want to throw out another cliche or give it to miyu?

Oh my bad, I'll toss out a new cliche:

Game contains item(s) that make you, erm... "larger".

Super Mario Bros. - mushrooms
flow - other creatures
Loco Roco - berries

New cliche:
Games that feature player-controlled bullet-time (as opposed to just using it at pre-selected times for kills or cutscenes).

Re: Video Game Talk's Video Game Cliché Game

These are getting hard... shouldn't cliches be easy to spot?

What if you're a good guy going vigilante? Is that good or bad?

It's a cliche in terms of game power ups. From Mario Bros to "enlargement" pills.

I guess that could go both ways so I would be fine with either one, a couple that sort of fit but not entirely is Star wars FU and GTA 4 because you can play those game either way, but honestly this one shouldn't be that hard, and I thought the bullet time one was easy but that might be because I like all 3 of those games even though not everyone did.

I thought you meant the euphemistic definition only.
