Who's your favorite Companion NPC?

<Edited to ditch the Fallout-centric theme>

Full disclosure, I hate playing First Person RPG games with a companion NPC. I throw a grenade - the companion runs over to the grenade... Kaboom... Tears for my dead Dogmeat...

But Fallout 4... I've just barely scratched the surface but I'm enjoying the NPCs more this time! I mean, they're still dumb-ass bullet magnets, absolute death for a stealth player. But they are a bit more fun this time around!

My top 2 favorites right now are Strong and Cait.

Cait is simple, Cait can pick locks for you. She burns through bobby pins pretty quick, but at least I don't have to waste level ups on lock-picking with her around!
Beyond that she's useless and tends to not last very long in a gun fight. And just how does a girl with a strong Irish brogue end up in post apocalyptic Boston? I dinna think Aer Lingus is still flying.

Strong... Okay, Strong is my favorite for his voice acting! :biggrin: Like most Bethesda stuff I'll be sick of it soon (and leave him standing out in the woods somewhere) but while it lasts... Oh while it lasts... :D:D:D


Rex, "No Strong! You don't understand what the bard is saying!"


(I am totally replaying this game a couple of times just so I can rerun the tower quest!)

    Seen it, and its huge. Looking for a more specific discussion on NPCs. Maybe I should have ditched the Fallout theme and just stuck to Companion NPCs in general.

    Sera from Dragon Age: Inquisition and Anders from DA2 should be noted for their ability to make decisions regardless of what the player character wants because that's pretty rad.

    Can I cheat and name the entire Dragonfall crew?

    Because while Dietrich, Eiger, Glory, Blitz and Dante individually may not be the greatest characters ever, put together they do make for a very fun team.

    Varric (Dragon Age). By miles.

    Larger companion count in DA3 meant he had less spotlight than in DA2, sadly, but he was still the best when he had something to do.

    Cassandra (Dragon Age), Garrus (Mass Effect), and Liara (Mass Effect) are runners-up.

    Varric was pretty excellent. I think he's Bioware's best character, by far. Olivier from TitS has been a lot of fun, too.

    Garrus is the right answer.

    Varric a close second.
