This is probably just me, but I'm pretty sick of "childlike" characters that are portrayed as being cute and endearing. Realistically, an adult acting like a child wouldn't be cute, it would be very off-putting.
I have seen some good ones... the adult who simply lacks the depth of understanding that their normal adult self might have.
By "pretty sick of" I am assuming you might be referring to the sheer proliferation of them? If so... I am in complete agreement.
Slightly tangential nut not entirely unrelated as a cringe is my absolute frustration, as a player. of characters who don't suffer any such 'intellectual impairment' yet simply lacking the intellectual requirement to maintain a basic story for sheer lack of attention span.
Actually... the more I think about cringes like these... the less appeal the game has overall. I once again find myself struggling with it, and I really haven't been back from a break for that long.
