Looking for a game with companions

Blazer6992Blazer6992 Las Vegas, NVPosts: 606Member Uncommon
   Lately I've had the itch for a game with companions. I somewhat liked the companions in SWTOR, I loved the companions in Skyrim. Are there other games out there with good companions that you can interact with? It doesn't need to be a MMO.

    I know it's an old game, but have you tried Fallout: New Vegas?  It's very similar to Skyrim, made by the same developers I think, and it comes with some great companions; especially when you Mod it.  My second choice would have been SWTOR, but you've already played that.

    A great list of free games (mostly MMORPGs): http://www.mytop10games.com/

    I was going to buy Mass Effect 3 over the holidays from Steam. But then I found out that it isn't even on Steam, ME 1 and ME 2 are on there, so I don't know why they didn't have the third one. I tried Neverwinter and didn't like it. I didn't know Dragon Age had companions, I wouldn't touch the other two with a ten foot pole.

    DRAGONS DOGMA DARK ARISEN IS A MUST PLAY

    If you have a ps3 or xbox

     

    If you have not played it yet you are missing

    You talk a lot with your bridge officers (they're a sort of quest npc's, reporting in frequently, connecting you to DOff assignments, etc.), but in the sense you ment, like in singleplayer games, it's not that type of interaction.

    Dragon Age has awesome companions!

    Also, the reason you don't find ME3 on Steam is because EA's Origin was used instead of Steam. =/

    I'm kinda hoping ESO will have companions too, or that they'll be added in some future update if the launch won't have any.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    I don't think TESO will have companions.

    So any MMO's besides SWTOR that has companions?

    Lots of mmo's have animal companions but human companions are not so popular.  I remember when FFXI let us have one.  Like with everything else we had to bleed for them.  I was so proud of that companion tho.  I assume you're talking about humanoid companions.

    Dungeon Siege, for turning your companions into characters that you level up and equip and play as on the fly.

    EQ2 has mercenaries but you dont really interact with them nor do they have stories. they just follow you around and fight. You can dress them up but you have to pay them too

    Is that one of those side scroller games?

    Nuh uh, Dungeon Siege is one of the older isometric rpgs.  (Top down rts type rpg.)

    Along that note, if you have a craving for companions then Baldur's Gate/Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced edition are must plays.  Companions have personalities that will either butt heads against each other or get along famously, with each one having a storyline (to some extent,) for themselves.  And there's a guy who has a space hamster.

    You can get Mercs in EQ2, but you have to pay money when you use them... So it's kinda like running around dungeons with hookers. I believe you can customize them a bit also.

    EA stopping giving steam the rights to sell games a few years ago, when they wanted to get origin going, so the only EA games you'll see on steam are ones they already had the rights to. ( not sure about the f2p ones though )

    Gamefly still sells them but the only time I've ever seen me3 on sale was the whole bundle which was still more than the me3 stand alone.

    FFXI has the NPC companion,you do quests designed for that npc and level it up as well and it can fight and heal you also.

    Eq2 has companions,i guess people call them mercenaries.

    These are the best two instances of using companions that i know of.

    How deep are your avatar's pockets? How many can you handle?

    Jagged Alliance, Back in Action has 40 hireable and 12 recruitable mercenaries. A few of them won't work for you if you already have a mercenary on the payrol they can't stand. Otherwise, you can hire them all at once.

       Is this the MMO that came out a few years ago that sucked so bad at release they had to redo it?

    Guild Wars 1 has a really good hero system.

    Whenever i step outside, somebody claims to see the light
    It seems to me that all of us have lost our patience.
    'cause everyone thinks they're right,
    And nobody thinks that there just might
    Be more than one road to our final destination--

    A miniature giant space hamster. The difference is subtle as both species are homicidal killing furry killing machines, but Boo wasn't able to swallow a man whole.

    Oh, you could try Avernum if you wanna play some classic top-down RPG dungeon crawling.

    No, that was FFXIV. FFXI came out much earlier and did well

    Baldur's Gate 1 and 2. You can have lots of companions.

    Bioware's Neverwinter Nights has hirelings and NPCs that group.  If I remember right, they get gear etc.

     

    It's been ages since I've touched it.  I'm sure one of the others will know details.
