This. Or maybe it's just moonlight.

I mean't when you enter outdoor sections and it's daylight. Terrible wording :3

All those flying naked guys, damn cliché.. Right?
Would be better if they used flying, angry Brutes instead. BOOM! Straight into your face.

OBS! Sorry for off topic!

Oh man, flying brutes...that would be brutal (Da-da-tss)

Here's another one:
Grunt: I'm gonna get you! NOPE! I'm just a poofer....And I'm back again! You better run! Don't worry, I'm just another poofer...GUESS AGAIN!! And you're dead. Aren't I scary."
Me: "No"

Anything involving Poofers and flying jumpscares are such cliche's.

"Veni, vidi, vici."
"I came, I saw, I conquered."

Pretty sure that CS descriptions that say "NO FLYING NAKED GUYS" are now far more cliche than actually having flying naked guys. The same with "NO CHEAP JUMPSCARES". Getting bored with that

Pitch black rooms with no oil for like an hour or two. that crunching sound really gets on my nerve. People keep doing this because they think: Oh yea! Dark rooms are scary.

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Cliches

Jump scares, of any kind

When a monster is spawned behind you out of nowhere when you're about to enter a new room or level

When the scares have absolutely nothing to do with the story in any way

When the environment is too dark because some people don't know how to properly light their levels

When you are supplied with a lantern but people forget to put in the necessary items to make that lantern usable

Really boring and anticlimactic endings after having solved ridiculously retarded puzzles and searched around for items for hours (typically in the dark when your lantern has no fuel)

Custom Stories that don't actually have stories.

Custom stories that try to be funny instead of interesting or scary, and still fail at being funny, pretty miserably 90% of the time

That's all I can think of right now. That probably covers everything though.
