most irritating tag along character?

Post by krusty40 » Sun Feb 01, 2009 7:00 am

some games insist that you drag a character along with you for a portion of the game- example Maria form silent hill 2 or that other one from silent hill 4( i forget her name she was that irritating). these tag-alongs more often than not slow you down, get in your way and need assistance with even climbing up one step-the best example being the silent hill 4 woman who would pump blood if a tiny bat so much as pecked her. these characters affect your final score, so who is the most irritating tag along ever??

Buddies in Far Cry 2 that keep getting shot and you have to use your health packs to heal them, you have the option of shooting them dead of course but you'll miss out on missions/trophies.

Eileen, I think thats the name of the girl in SH4 ruined the second half of the game for me. She's completely incompetent and I got to a point where she just would not follow me. Its a miracle I finished the game without destroying the disc.
Tails in Sonic 2 was annoying, he would constantly die (making a lot of noise while he's at it) and seriously hinder me whenever I was in Special Stages. Thank god Sega has the forthought to have a "Sonic only" mode!

That chick in Goldeneye always had a habit for wandering across your line of fire, however she wasn't there for the whole game.

SH4 girl was pretty bad!

Don't know why but that dog in Shadow Dancer irritated me! Guess I was used to the gameplay from the first game.

The second character in one player on Lego Star Wars: TCS.

They don't do anything to help out when you've got a roomful of bad guys. They keep shooting at them but don't kill any of them at all. Then they suddenly run around behind you with loads of bad guys following. Of course once they get in range the lot of them attack you killing you in no time. :evil:

Makes the Special Stages so frustrating many a time!

Ratpouch in 'Lure of the Temptress'
One useless character.
Funny that the 'Tell Ratpouch to F**k off' command didn't work!

Easily Tails. How many bloody times has he cost me Chaos Emeralds on the Sonic 2 bonus rounds?
