30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 18. Favourite Sidekick/Pet/Companion.

Today, I’m talking about the people or beings that have joined me on my video gaming adventures!

Let’s start off with my favourite sidekick. For this, I would have to go with Garrus from the Mass Effect series. No matter how many times I play these games, Garrus always seems to be in my party. He is a fantastic sniper and already good offensive fighter for your team. Not only that but you can romance me in the games. Yes, I went there and I’m not ashamed. Garrus is a character with strong convictions and someone I’m happy to have watch my back in a firefight.


My favourite pet has to be Senu from Assassin’s Creed Origins. She is not just a pet but also a loyal companion to Bayek. Throughout the game, it is through Senu that you survey the landscape and scout for enemies. Not only does she provide Bayek with important information, but on occasion, she will also harass enemies that are attacking Bayek, which can make the difference between life and death for Bayek. I would also like to mention that Evee is also my favourite, just because its Eevee.

Finally, we reach my favourite companion and who else could it be, but Lydia from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Once you become Thane of Whiterun, you gain Lydia as your Housecarl. It is her duty to protect you and she is also “sworn to carry your burdens”. And carry my burdens she does… at least all the dragon bones I’ve collected, unwanted but valuable weapons and armour, books, potions, ore… the list goes on. Yet despite everything you put her through, Lydia won’t complain but instead follow you to the far reaches of Skyrim. What more could you ask from a companion?

So there were my favourite sidekick, pet and companion. Who are yours? Let me know in the comments and join me tomorrow when I’ll be talking about game that I’ve started but haven’t finished yet… I’m not sure one post will be enough for this topic…





I did not create this challenge,  I found this challenge on The Gaming Teacher blog and the challenge itself was created on the New Game Plus blog. If you enjoy gaming blogs, I highly recommend you check out both these blogs!

    Does Wolf Link count as a pet? 😅
    It’s hard to pick a single favorite companion, but I’d day Vivian from Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door is pretty high on the list. Her ability to make you disappear is really useful and her Fiery Jinx ability is amazing at blasting through groups of enemies.

    1. I would say so! After all, he is fluffy and pettable in that state. I’ve not played any of the Paper Mario games, but it does sound like Vivian would be a useful person to have in your party!
