#2 Pushing Crates has God of War listed as an "offender". Just thought I'd point out that there's all kinds of things you can push around in the game like statues, "tetris" blocks, cages w/ people trapped in them, and yes a few crates. If I remember correctly, there's only ONE puzzle in the game that requires you to push a crate. Don't want to give people the wrong impression about the game. You can also open lots of chests full of goodies in GOW. I guess that would be another game cliche though. Maybe we should just remove all the crates and chests and all the other game cliches, and Kratos can just run around and whack enemies with his chains. I think the game would be more fun then.

IMO jumping is cliche in games.
