RPG Words/Phrases that should be banned
I was just thinking about certain words and phrases in RPGs that are so worn-out and overused that they just sound stupid when they are used. Although I can't think of too many, one particular one springs to mind.
Seriously, how many times have you heard this word used in an RPG and actually sounds cool? It's just so lame in context. It's always "Oh, the Darkness will swallow you!" "Watch out for the Darkness!" "Get away from me, Darkness! You scare me!" I dunno, it's just me, but for some reason that word irkes me in RPGs. It might be from the fact that I recently played Arc The Lad 4 and Kingdom Hearts, so I'm pretty much "Darkness"ed out.
Can anyone think of anything else?
