Edit: Anyone besides me find the idea of an Evangelion movie coming out in 2012 funny? :)

Well, people insist that the Mayans predicted the apocalypse... May as well prove them right in at least some sense of the word. Remember, folks, the next installment is supposedly a double-feature: 3.0 (Quickening) and 4.0 (Finale). And we all know how the last ending to the Evangelion saga turned out.

There's that close call at the end of You can (not) advance., too...

The Mayans predicted the year right but they got the date wrong. Us KeroQ fans know it's July 20 =P

So are the character design themselves: childhood next door neighbor, tomboy who always says "boku" all the time, huge breast and glasses, etc. Nevermind that +50% of the market are just clones of each other, or borrow something from Sentimental Graffiti/Tokimeki Memorial at some basic level. For example you get something successful like Tsukihime (which in of itself isn't a "new" idea in the b-game industry), and there's 500 clones of it.

Eroge is a lot like Hollywood actually... recycled/rebooted/rebranded ideas and whatnot. Only 1% of the stuff is truly original. :|

I would agree with the observation that Eroge lot like Hollywood. Neither one of them were born from blank slates. There is actually a cool site that delves into recurring character/plot themes from all sorts of media and genres across the board: http://tvtropes.org (TVTropes.org: There are a plenty of such themes all over and they are very pervasive.)

It is more about how to put together 'right' combos, rather than creating originals.
