Game Side Characters

In all the games you’ve played who was your favorite side character (anyone you don’t play as); the character that you identified with or cared about the most and why? What made you care about them more than the others?

Mud from Gothic 1. He was extremely annoying and totally useless, but his pathfinding couldn't handle ladders very well which led to a lethal accident.

Ran around with a clown mask before it was cool

Dog in Fallout 1. We had an insane amount of adventures together and I was pulling off the most crazy acrobatics just to keep this damn fleabag alive. But in the end super-mutant with a flamethrower got him - I was never so sad about NPC dying before :(

Barney Calhoun from hl2 is the bestest Metrocop Rebel ever

I only cheat a little bit guis

CLEMINTINE from walking dead
she is ono of the only characters to make me cry. also in game shes nice and saves your life 2 times.

And oldie and I would say goodie but not particularly

I was gonna say Dogmeat, but now I feel unoriginal.

Virgil, from Arcanum. Virgil is great. I just found him to be a really well-written and acted character right from the start. For a not insignificant portion of the game (depending how you play it through) Virgil feels like your only friend in the world.

Coincidentally, there's a dog in that game too. Dog is absurdly strong in melee.

Probably Boone, from Fallout: New Vegas.

He's just the only character in the Fallout series I ever really gave a damn about. The VA is good, he has a tragic backstory, he's a pretty honorable guy, and he gets shit done; he's perfect.

It probably would've been the Brotherhood of Steel companion (can't remember her name) if her voice acting didn't bug the hell out of me. It always sounds like she's talking between gulps of air.

It's a shame the rest of the Mojave isn't as interesting as these two. New Vegas would definitely have beaten Fallout 3 out of my #1 favorite game spot if the setting and people weren't boring as dirt.
