I kind of prefer supporting / non playable characters for most of the time , whether it be in story , games or movies , it's always the guy in the background that i like the most , for various reasons , sometimes it's because they end up reflecting and expose the main character alot more than the main character does himself , or sometimes they're just plain awesome ...

Anywya , i was wondering what are your favorite supporting / non playable characters in video games ...
List as many as you want , whether they be male , robots , monsters , females , five minute roles , whatever , list them if you liked any ... and add a explanation if you want to ...

Notice that the topic is about supporting characters and not specifically villains (at least not The Main Villain of said game , but he could be like the villain number two or something) , also , both Lynch and Kane are playable characters , so that kind of exclude them off this list ...

Alright that's about it , now it's your turn ...

Elena Fisher from Uncharted. Because she's really nice. If she were real, I'd love to have her as a friend.

Barney doesnt have enough scenes in half life 2 to justify him being a good companion sidekick etc, whereas alyx is always constantly by you at the right times, also

-puts on sunglasses-

Dat ass.

Semi on topic i replaced barneys model with francis from l4d, it was an interesting decision and quite humourous results :P

Off top of my head,

Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 4. I admit it, as much as I hated him in second game, he improved a lot.

Fallout 3 NPCs;
Charon is pretty bad-ass.
McCreedy since gotta love his language for a boy his age.
Three Dog because I love to listen to his podcast on radio in the game. I wish he actually had more to talk about. Such a fun character.

Raiden ? ...
If that idiot had DIED when he was suppose to , hell yes ! ...
But since he didn't , well , meh ...

Agree about Charon and Mayor McCreedy ...
Three Dog though ... well ... it's like the soundtrack of the game , there just aren't enough of them for a fifty hour game , let alone a hundred hour experience ...

Well isn't that your opinion? LOL
And like I said, Three Dog would have been better if he had more to talk about. Perhaps some pre-Great War stories? More about the Brotherhood of Steel fighting the good fight? And of course more songs.

I agree with almost that entire list, especially on Jack Swift and Stubbsy.

Now, in terms of my favourite characters, I've gotta go with Canderous Ordo and Jolee Bindo from KotOR. Having those two in your party always assured good times.

Ummmm, let me think...

Victor Niguel from Trauma Center: Second Opinion.

http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/0/8883/825458-victor_thumb.png

He was one of the best characters in the game just because he was such a smartass all the time. And I mean ALL THE TIME.

Who else...

Waka from Okami, mon ami.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/94/Okami-waka.jpg

Gaz from Modern Warfare (I'd include Captain Price, but you play as him in one level).

http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/2615/gazra3.jpg

General Alister Azimuth from Ratchet and Clank Future, he was a badass.

http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/0/1717/1075508-double_ended_wrench_super.png
I can't think of any others.

We are very disappointed that Slash forgot about the magnificence that is Us.

Not only did i forgot to answer in my own topic , but i also forgot one of NPCs i had in mind that gave me the idea to start this topic in the first place ! ...

The Dark Prince from The Two Thrones ...
http://www.revistagamer.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/377478dark-prince.jpg

Note that in the game you actually play with His Power and technically Not Himself , so he still counts as a NPC ... hell , he is also an unseen character since we only hear his voice throughout the game ...
