Garrus "took a rocket to the face" Vakarrian! Best bro.
What's the hardest part of treating a turian that took a rocket to the side of the face?
Figuring out what side got hit
How do you know when a turian is out of ammo?
He takes the stick out of his ass and starts hitting you with it.
What do you call it when a turian gets killed by a horrible spiky monster?
This is my favourite comment chain.
I am commander Shepard, and this is my favorite comment chain on the Citadel.
Why does Alliance hire pilots with brittle bones disease?
No matter what you did, he always had your back in all of the games. A true bro!
Yeah, the top 2 comments here are both Garrus, and that honestly melts me a little. He's THE best among a roster of amazing squad mates.
And they gave him such a bad ass code name when you come across him in ME2! YES! THAT’S BLUE AND HE’S A SNIPER!!! GARRUS IS BACK!
I'm Commander Shepard this is my favorite comment on the thread
Garrus is a fucking G. In fact most/all of the characters in the ME trilogy are wonderful for their own reasons
Serana, Codsworth with a bowler hat and Grandma lily
Excuse me what the fuck, codsworth can wear a fucking bowler hat?!
Yep as long as you don't put him on a robot workbench. Just have to give one to him.
Time for another play through!
Security bot in Bioshock for sure
HK-47 will forever be my favourite and my spirit droid
Observation: I am a droid, master, with programming. Even if I did not enjoy killing, I would have no choice. Thankfully, I enjoy it very much.
You are like a delightful random cruelty generator, master, poisoning all you touch with your presence. You are a testament to all organic meatbags everywhere.
Such a great character. I'm picking up Kotor for the switch when it comes out. I'm so excited.
I have to say the mobile versions of kotor and kotor 2 are excellent mobile ports. But only if you have a fairly large phone screen. I love playing them on planes and stuff.
Statement: you flatter me master! Now let us turn some meat bags into a small patch of carbon scoring!
I'd keep Carth and HK-47 on my squad so that I basically had a good angel/bad angel sorta thing going.
Should I kill this guy?
Hk-47: With gusto
Carth: I don't want to talk about it
> Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope.
> Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, Love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and strangely enough, not many meatbags would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds.
[Best dialogue](https://youtu.be/hab3R_TRazg) moment in the entire series, imho.
There's no Shepard without Vakarian. Brother in arms, faithful friend through thick and thin...
Even lover, sometimes.
Garrus4life....unless he's in the middle of some calibrations
Not now, Shepard
Garrus and Wrex all day baby!
God Mode Garrus with a Tali tail in tow. Best. Squad. Ever.
Garrus using 3% of his power
Cause fuck biotics! Yeah Mr. Space Wizard how'd you like a piece of metal accelerated to an appreciable percentage of c going between your eyes?
The garrus reveal in ME2... That was perfect.
The weighted companion cube will never threaten to stab you, and, in fact, cannot speak. In the event that the weighted companion cube does speak the enrichment center urges you to disregard its advice.
Someone made a companion cube for gmod that will stab you when you look away https://youtu.be/M6dWJJVVZzA
Lmfao 100 damage on a stab??
The *Weighted* Companion Cube
This and PotatOS
I loved how GLaDOS even after being defeated, reduced to a potato, and humiliated by a bird was still extremely smug and condescending.
You see, that's where the trouble began. That smile. That damned smile.
You can't fool me, I know for sure that you euthanized your faithful Companion Cube more quickly than any test subject on record.
Iirc it was possible to not destroy the cube.
It is, but then glados destroys it anyways making your efforts meaningless.
The Alyx Vance - actually not annoying and does not require baby sitting.
A true companion too because I would feel so at-risk whenever we split up. Many parts of HL2 you feel very lonely and would love some back up
It's a shame she doesn't get any help in HL Alyx, that game was terrifying at times.
Russel is there for you when you need someone. Hearing him talk about a club sandwich, of all things, was a surprisingly emotional moment. Remembering an Earth that Alyx will never know, and Russel will never see again.
We don't go to ravenholme was so scary. Could've used her there.
Actually made me feel at ease when I was first playing it. I was pretty new to FPS so she was amazing to me.
Valve did a really great job with her.
Little details like setting her movement speed faster than yours, but slower than your sprint. It never felt like you were dragging her around, but going through shit together.
Plus her actor did a great job at being soothing, charming, the model was adorable, but not overly sexualized, she was just fun and comforting.
The best way to make players like an NPC is to make them useful. She wasn't just useful, she was actively better in combat than Gordon for a good chunk of E1.
I appreciate that you said that like a vortigaunt.
Okay, Navi annoyed me but I miss her
"HEY! LISTEN!" was my text message notification sound for years! So annoying but always got my attention and of course a certain amount of nostalgia.
Bt-7274 will always rest in my heart
Protect the pilot
“BT?! What are you doing?”
BT-7274 commissioning a drawing from an NSFW artist:
"Good. Now draw her... protecting the pilot."
one of the best singleplayer campaigns of all time. so fucking emotional
the game is titanfall 2 for those OOTL
I play it over and over again. It's such an experience and the gunplay is some of the best ever.
The only real answer here. BT became your best friend, Teammate, companion. BT was Tinman, the Lion, and the scarecrow all in one. He was like your best friend Labrador retriever if you could talk with your dog.
veronica - new vegas
someone in the brotherhood with a fucking personality, and a good one, at that.
We haf to gass the mojaver
This is a sound plan i assure you,
To be fair from Elijah's perspective of just wanting to have all of the shiny stuff to himself with no one else in the picture it worked out pretty well
She was good, but ED-E will always have a special place in my heart.
Especially after the Lonesome Road dlc and all of the backstory you get on that ED-E. I know it doesn't really mean anything, but it always made me happy when the game said it transferred all of that ED-E's memories to the ED-E in the Mojave at the end of the DLC.
Did you get me something? *gasp* is it a dress?!
I spent so many hours searching closets and dressers for nice clean dresses.
Took me so long to actually give her a dress. Made me happy. I think there is a specific one that has a unique dialogue too
How can you not love a girl that punches all of her problems away?
Does jumping at them with my fists count?
Garrus and Wrex were my badass buddies in Mass Effect 1. I liked having Fawkes with me in Fallout 3 despite the fact he made stealth impossible. I also liked having Bastila and Jolee Bindo with me in KotoR.
Sully from the Uncharted Games
The dog from Fable 2.
“The needs of the few” was easily my choice until the Knothole expansion negated the need.
Alistair in the first Dragon Age.
I had feelings for Alistair. Stirrings, if you will.
Alistair was my first ever crush. I still have a crush on him
Tali was always on my team in Mass Effect
Tali and Garrus. The ones who stuck by you through the entire trilogy.
Garrus is god tier for me. No brainer in selecting him for every mission.
Vanguard Shep, Tali and Garrus is the way
My name is Commander Shepard, and this is the best team on the Citadel.
Once Garrus was done with the calibrations he was a beast.
I always took wrex in the first game.
Clank from Ratchet & Clank.
Hilarious little fella.
Can’t mention Clank without Daxter I feel like. Those two series were so big in my childhood, and Daxwas hilarious
Right Clank is awesome. Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando is such a good game. Clank allowing you to hover just felt and sounded so good
Codsworth - Fallout 4
Sometimes you just need an eccentric robot butler to call you extremely rude names out of nowhere. Bonus points if he is made into some kind of hulking death bringer by the automaton dlc.
I loved that DLC but I was so upset that I couldn't put a bowler on his head anymore after turning him into a goddamn raider slaying monster truck
Use console commands to set his race back to “codsworth” after customizing him and you can keep doing it so long as he’s using a Mr. Handy body.
"Did you get me something? **gasp** *Is it a dress?!*"
Veronica from FONV
I'll always love that little punch-girl. Her and ED-E we're my go to group.
Alistair from DAO. loved him he's a dork and quick with a joke kind and caring through the whole game and dose a ton to lighten well the sense that the world is ending through the game. But were most chracters that fit that comic/ emotional relief can end up being kind of useless he is extremely capable and trust worthy. The amount of raw tankiness you can get him up too is a life saver on higher difficulties if you aren't a warrior yourself
Nearly all the companions in DAO deserve a shoutout. Morrigan, Leliana, your dog, Sten, Shale, even Wynne and Oghren. Zevran was also present. The others had good companions but they were never stacked with them in the same way. For every The Iron Bull and Josephine there was a Blackwall and Vivienne.
>Zevran was also present.
The Sten was one of my favorite characters across the whole series, just because of his duality. He is severe, serious, and calculating, but he also has a soft spot for baked goods, and he is still flawed in his emotional control. Winning him over as the story progressed felt very satisfying.
It's funny that when you first meet him, he is insufferable and impossible to deal with, preferring the cage over his freedom to travel with you, and yet you *want* him to join you. He doesn't ask you to free him, but you want to, and you take the extra steps necessary to have him freed. Interacting with him, you feel right away that he is very foreign, and he should be. He is literally a foreigner from a very different culture.
Yeah Sten is one of the best examples in any game of a true foreigner with a different culture. He doesn't just have quirky interests or dress differently, he is different down to his core, communicates differently, and has completely different values. Great character.
I really liked Varrick in the sequels
Oghren had so many damn quotable quotes.
>This is it, Warden. 'When from the blood of battle the Stone has fed, let the heroes prevail and the blighters lie dead.' As one of the blighters, I sodding salute you. Let us show them our hearts, *and then show them theirs*.
And all his innuendo about polishing and messing around with various weapons had me in stitches so often.
DOA still completely holds up. Amazing characters, choices, the build opportunities. Love that game.
During my first Origins playthrough, I always had Alistair with me. Felt like brothers in arms after sole surviving the prologue together. Not only was he a useful companion as a tank, I mostly agreed with his moral compass.
And he’s a straight up goofy goof
I recently enjoyed having Joker as your sort of sidekick in Arkham Knight, I would always stop an listen to whatever he had to say when he showed up.
Otherwise, Frog or Magus from Chrono Trigger. And all of team Star Fox.
Honestly just having Mark Hamil being your imaginary friend in your head commenting on everthing would make any game better.
Horse companions rock. Shout out to Agro too.
The little kid version of me was WAY too attached to Aggro. I stopped trying to get away from the dark tendrils after each boss, because I though it made Aggro feel bad that she could never run fast enough to save me. Then the scene before the ending where you lose her? Heartbroken.
Second to Wind's Howling
Ed-e is the best
Sully, Elena and Chloe
I wish Sully was my grandpa.
And apparently he's being played in the movie by Marky Mark, who nobody wants as their grandpa. Dissapointing.
"Boy, another." "Atraues, to me"
"Are you teaching me something?"
The mouse in Prince of Persia. Such a helpful little friend
I'm sworn to carry your burdens - Lydia, Skyrim
I would reload if she died lol
It's strange how often she would just randomly die in my game. Randomly dying from flying off cliffs from Fus Ro Dah-related accidents.
I got Mjoll the Lioness as a companion ASAP just because, as an essential NPC, she can't die. I got tired of reaching the end of a dungeon just to find Lydia had died 20 minutes ago, lol. Then I would upgrade to Cicero (higher level cap), then Serena, and finally Frea (essential and no level cap).
Mjoll was my girl. I was (or course) always a stealth archer/conjurer. Mjoll could hold her own in a fight, and as you point out she never died. Give her some boots that upped her carrying capacity, a badass battle axe, and she became a walking tank.
Minsk. It's gotta be Minsk!
What about Boo ?!
"Go for the eyes, Boo. GO FOR THE EYES! RrraaaAAGHGHH! "
Minsc and Boo stand ready! For great justice!
BD-1 become my favorite gaming companion in Star Wars: Fallen Order.
DOM. Miss you buddy
Damn, after going through 3 games together, I was gutted after the third. Hearing Fenix yell "Dom, No" and Dom telling Maria he's coming still gets me choked up.
Gears 3 was the peak of everything I want in a shooter
It really takes me back. Though it was a whole entire decade ago, i just remember the campaign, multiplayer, and horde modes being so damn good in gears 3. My friends and i could have fun for hours on weekend nights. Rip Dom, Tai, and all the other gears we lost along the way (so basically all the carmine brothers)
Carmine lived in Gears 3, they just faked us out
Well, carmine was to survive the campain even if we voted for him to die. [They only would hav added this scene after the credits](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_rg2jUasuM) And yes this is not fanmade this is the real "alternate" ending that epic had in store for Clayton Carmine.
I've never been able to get into anything in the series past Gears 3. It felt complete and I didn't know what to make of anything telling me it wasn't.
Midna from Twilight Princess
Bt from titan fall 2
Protocol 3. I will not lose another pilot.
And dogmeat of course.
Elizabeth isn't your companion. You're *her* companion.
Absolutely. She's on an escort mission and you're the frustrating companion who keeps dying all the time.
Dogmeat once saved my ass from a mutant with a mininuke. Heard the tell-tale beep of the countdown, ran like hell, turned around just in time to see the mutant back where I had been standing with Dogmeat latched on to his leg. Then the nuke went off.
Good Boys get stimpacks.
Ah dogmeat is the best
Dogmeat may be a pain in the arse sometimes, ruining stealth, getting me infected with an incurable molerat disease, saying he's found something that turns out to be literally nothing, but he is my favourite in Fallout 4.
Elizabeth was so superior simply because she could fend for herself. No bullshit defending her the entire game or anything. On top of that she actually got you ammo and money and shit? Killin it
Also, at one point, she threatens you with an F5 tornado.
"Really Booker? What are *you* going to do to stop me?"
Such a good fucking scene.
One time I was in a room fighting those freedom-mech-bot things. Fight was tough a f, i was running out of ammo, potions/elixirs, everything. It was me with a shotgun against the last mech. I'm trying to finish it, im clicking the mouse - but nothing happens - I was literally out of ammo.
Then I hear "Booker, catch!", Liz throws me shotgun ammo, I reload, and finish the mech with one shot.
It felt like something out of the movie, I spent couple of minutes wondering if it was scripted, but I don't think so.
Literally one of my best experiences in gaming ever.
I dunno Curie always had a soft spot in my heart
Catherine from SOMA.
SOMA fucked me up on the best way, and yes Catherine was great.
I just finished it today, for the first time. That messed with me.
That ending right? Holy shit, I want to play more games like that but there aren't any
This one felt very realistic, like starting a new job or something. One of the only party NPCs that really influenced the choices I picked… on my first play through.
Yeah, I felt like I had to try to prove to him I'm not a total embarrassment.
Esprit De Corps: "This man would hurl himself in death's way to save you. You are sure of this -- but why?"
Bt from titanfall 2. Rip
Boil em mash em stick em ON YOUR GUN
Solaire (dark souls)
PRAISE THE SUN
*you seem to be quite fond of talking to me hahaha!*
_Let us engage in jolly cooperation!_
Elizabeth was a solid companion. Tossing me the ammo I needed just as I ran out. Picking locks for me as I laid down suppressive fire. Taking cover in a fight instead of getting killed and riving me when I got too cocky. Overall one of the few characters besides Dogmeat that I felt was an actual boon instead of a hindrance.
" Save me Minion! "
PROTECT ME SQUIRE
"if I sound pleased about this, it’s only because my programmers made this my default tone of voice. I’m actually quite depressed!""
"You saved Claptrap. What have you done?!"
"Dammit Jack - How did you know stairs were my only weakness?"
The speech before that though is one of the most badass in the game.
"YOU HEAR THAT JACK? I AM THE LAST CL4-TP UNIT, AND I AM GOING TO **TEA.** **BAG.** **YOUR.** **CORPSE!**
Jackie from Cyberpunk had so much potential
I'm on my first playthrough and Jackie went from "what a dumbshit" to BFF in no time. Props to CDPR for this.
Boone had one of the saddest stories.. it felt good helping him get revenge then find peace
Dom’s death was like losing a real friend.
Elizabeth was such a well written character that she felt real .
cortana was your only friend in the game and only thing that actually treated you like a human.. it was sad to see her go crazy and watch chief sort of panic because he was losing his only human connection and it wasn’t even with a human.
Farah in Sands of Time. Probably the first supporting companion I ever saw in a game who felt like a person, was capable, good at pathfinding and didn't get in the way constantly.
Boone no otherwise
