Slide 1 of 6

Every now and then, a game comes along and gets you emotionally attached to one of your companions. They don’t necessarily have to be amazing fighters or the funniest, but gamers still love them. Ranging from man's best friend to aliens from across the galaxy, these faithful friends always have your back, even when your character decides to jump into stupid situations that could get you both killed.

    Soooo glad you put Garrus in here. Would have been incomplete without him for sure.

    If I had to pick my favorite companion, I'll have to go with this http://www.well-of-souls.com/civ/images/advisor_military.jpg

    My favorites are the partners you never have to worry about; I HATE babysitting. That's one of the big reasons why Ellie is so great.

    I also really liked Elika in Prince of Persia.

    I like the backpack companions. Kazooie, Clank, and Daxter always make me laugh. :D
