Okay, this is gonna sound edgy, but I find that I like characters like this more because I can relate to the issues they've faced, its harder for me to relate to characters that aren't overly edgy with some dark backstory because I haven't been in their situation.

If it's done right with some unique ideas, the former. Otherwise, it's the latter.

Some can be really good, even if they include cliches

most good writing comes out of using a cliche as a base and making it your own, imo.
