More On: Master of the Monster Lair
"I am sick of RPGs with gender-confused boy heroes with their spikey hair and ginormous swords living out an absurd ultimate fantasy.  Is having your village burn down all you really need to be a champion?  And a scar on your face is supposed to make you...What, dark and brooding?  Try uncoordinated."

I think My World, My Way's heroine, Elise, is going to turn a few JRPG cliches on their head.  Elise can change the landscape when it doesn't suit her, make monsters drop more loot, shut down her enemies' magic abilities, just make the monsters go away if she wants, or even make quests solve themselves.  Did I say that she's going to turn a few JRPG cliches on their head?  Oh, I meant that she's going to shake up the whole role-playing game genre.
"If those walking, talking manchild cliches can leave their farms and their tiny villages -- saying tearful goodbyes to their uncles or surrogate parents -- and save the universe in the course of a few hours, I'm sure a resourceful girl like me will have the world wrapped around my finger in no time."
Wow.  Maybe this isn't so much turning cliches on their head as it is developing a title called Cheat Codes: The Game.
