"NPCs (non-playable characters) are a massively important part of the gaming experience, so we thought we'd show our love and appreciation. Though they're fictional computer-generated characters, we often develop real feelings for these beings. Sure, they serve functional roles, guiding you through the game. But their presence and personality can allow us to form strong bonds and real emotions, leading us to truly care about their wellbeing. So which NPCs are our favorites?"

What NPC's have stuck with you over time?

He's a pretty old school NPC, but I have fond memories of Dr. Wright in SimCity.

Currently, I love to hate Cicero in Skyrim :)

Dr. Wright was pretty cool. I always liked getting his statue to put up in my city.

Here are some of my favorite NPC's (in no particular order):

-Mr. Saturn(s) (Earthbound): They offer you free room and board, advice, and free coffee breaks. What's not to love about these guys (and girls?)
-My Moogle (FFXI): He kept track of all my gear, tended my garden, cleaned up my house... Seriously, I need one of these in real life.

Those are the two that I thought of off the top of my head. I'm sure I'll come back and add some more when I can think about it little more. :)
