NPCs are, of course, an important part of each game, be it an RPG, shooter, action adventure, or even an RTS. They’re what support the story, and sometimes, even the gameplay. But sometimes, NPCs in a game turn out be rather amusing. Compiled above is a list of 9 games that were full of nonsensical NPCs, that sometimes made us laugh, and sometimes annoyed the hell out of us.
Enjoy, and leave behind your feedback in the comments section below!
1. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
I don’t really know if Bethesda did this on purpose, but the NPCs in Elder Scrolls 4- especially the guards- were sometimes extremely dumb, so much so that I burst out laughing at their dialogues more than once. Just look at that video. The guard walks up to the other dead guard, and asks him if he’s “alight”. Well of course he’s not alright, that thing you see rolling on the ground isn’t a rock. The guard then looks up at the player and says “this person is dead.”
