Some people are clueless and they don't realize that originality doesn't exist anymore, it's a fact. Also I personally don't mind cliches as long as they're well executed because "Execution is all that matters".

because they don't call anything cliche unless they already don't like it. It's just a way to say "I don't like it" without saying "I don't like it."

Everyone just reuses things that already exist but add their own personal touch into them.

In a way it does, in that its going to be something people are familiar with. There is nothing wrong with a cliche done well. People also like things that are familiar to them. That being said you can implement a cliche different than the norm.

As long as it's not, go on an adventure becuase something something prophecy or your the chosen one etc I'm fine with it, and if I al playing as the chosen one don't tell me until the end let me feel like I earned that title rat her than being given it.

I love cliches, but it's how you use them that matters. Pretty much any story has cliches, there's not a single story out there that isn't a rehash of something else.

I think the reason why devs use clichés so much because they're kind of like "Tested and working",and familiar to the player.While overusing them IS a big mistake,throwing them right out of the window is also a mistake.My advice,use clichés,but do try to add your personal flavour to them.

Well, there are cliches and there are tropes. Tropes are typically fine and a good thing, yet some people often get them confused with "cliche" and then automatically assume it's bad. T_T

Apparently MZ lets you preview move routes in the move route editor without having to start up test game. That could save a lot of time during development compared to MV, especially for a long game that uses a lot of event movement for cutscenes.

I have a really hard time keeping all these goodies secret til December... but I swear, it is worth the wait!
Working on a Premium version of my minimap plugin that will have advanced functionalities such as drawing a Terrain map based completely on the users tilesets, whatever they may be, and drawing minimap radar icons automatically based on texture of the event the note is applied to.
