Top 10 Video Game Dogs to Accompany You Through the Apocalypse
The sun burns over the radiated desert landscape. In the distance you hear the roar of dirty engines. It's a pack of wasteland raiders, ready to shoot you down and take those last couple cans of food you have in your backpack. Behind you, a pack of mutant zombies shamble in your direction from the distant horizon. You cock your shotgun. There's no place to hide. You have to fight. If you only had a kick-ass canine companion to help you take down these geeks.
An apocalyptic world might look like anything… from zombies to dragons, so wouldn't it be nice to have a dog to not only keep you company, but tear out the throats of some muties along the way? That's why I've compiled my list of the top 10 game dogs I'd like to have with me during the Apocalypse.
10. General Pepper – Star Fox
His opposable thumbs may help in various situations, though he may be a little bit of a complainer… in fact, I am not sure why I am putting General Pepper on the list. Maybe it's because he'd be good fodder in one of those "zombie hoard" situations… I kid, I kid… This guy was a general, so maybe he has some sort of skills, I mean, he banished Andross from the universe at some point (so he says)… and he is a trophy in Super Smash Bros. (if that accounts for anything…)
Well, there are better dogs on this list, so read on…
9. K.K. Slider – Animal Crossing
He'll entertain you with his song and dance during those long nights in the wasteland. Yep, that's all I got. Also, I'm not sure how fast he can run… so, he may end up becoming bait, enabling you to escape whatever is chasing you. But you'd never let that happen to ol' K.K., right?
8. Interceptor – Final Fantasy VI
He's Shadow's faithful hound from FF6. You knew whenever you saw him randomly leap across the screen he would do some major damage. Interceptor is a faithful damage dealing machine. He was expensive as hell to feed in the game though, so he might be a little stuck up… you know, radiated kibble might not be enough for him… interceptor is also ‘known to eat strangers' so, when that craptasic wasteland food isn't good enough for him he might be looking at you for his next meal. CLASSY.
