Gaming is full of iconic heroes, but their companions deserve as much praise, if not more. Alyx from Half-Life, Ellie in The Last of Us, Garrus in Mass Effect and so on have some of the best AI and will do everything they can to help you.

In some shooters, like Left 4 Dead, the AI is intelligent enough to move out of the way of your shots.

Friendly fire is also enabled, so they can take damage and fall amid their stupidity, which is probably their least annoying trait.
