I spent last week re-visiting the Killzone 3 campaign. I also spent that entire time screaming at the screen with various insults and pointless threats directed at Rico, my A.I. companion. My hatred for him last week has inspired this list of frustrating and annoying characters from current-gen games. I know there are several characters that I am forgetting, but this handful is definitely a pain in the ass.
So starting it off with the useless Rico from the Killzone series. He had the ability to revive you in the campaign and he would stand right beside you while you were down and do NOTHING except say, “I can’t reach you.” Umm Rico you were standing on me! His repetitive dialogue was even more annoying because he was so incredible useless.
Any survivors from Dead Rising.(Except for you, Snowflake, you were my homie!) If you’ve ever played Dead Rising, then no explanation is really needed. If you haven’t played the series, then i’ll just say they were frustrating and needy when all you really want them to do is shut up and follow you to safety.
Pierce from the Saints Row series. He was annoying because whenever you were in a hurry and needed to take him with you, he always took his sweet time getting in the car. He was useless. I lost count of how many times I had to revive him because he stood outside the car and just got shot up.
Sheva from RE5- It was nice to play Chris and enjoy the view as she walked, but she was a terrible and frustrating A.I. companion.
Sherry Berkin from Resident Evil because in RE6 you either had to play as her or Jake. If you wanted to get all the trophies/achievements for RE6, then you had to play as both so you were either Jake constantly saving Sherry or you were Sherry running around with a cattle-pod. Seriously Sherry? A cattle-prod? That was one of the most frustrating parts of the campaign on professional difficulty.
Nazeem from Skyrim. I’ve spent countless hours playing Skyrim and there is no one that I loathe and want to kill in that game more than that arrogant bastard Nazeem. Every single time I enter Whiterun, I know he will be just around the corner so he can pass by me and say, “Do you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying – of course you don’t.” You sir, must die.
Moira from Fallout 3- *spoiler alert if you haven’t done all Fallout 3 has to offer* She had some of the most ridiculous quests and she was beyond annoying. She would be the one moron to survive the nuking of Megaton! Ugh!
So these are some of my picks, comment below and share yours! What characters had you raging at the screen?
