    I just finished Borderlands 3 and I got to thinking how much I liked the character of Typhon DeLeon, the first Vault Hunter. Then, I also thought about Mr. Torgue, another loud, amusing character from Borderlands 2. Then, I realized, there are a bunch of NPCs in games that I've played over the years that I really like. Some of these may be funny, brooding, quest givers, useless, move the plot along, help out in battle, etc. Here's just a few of mine:

    1. Typhon DeLeon - Borderlands 3
    2. Mr. Torgue - Borderlands 2
    3. Clutch Nixon - Far Cry 5 (technically, he's not in the game himself, but I feel his legend is so badass that he counts as being an NPC :D )
    4. Hurk - Far Cry 3, 4, 5
    5. J. Jonah Jameson - Spider-Man (PS4)

    ...sorry, I'm tired and these are all I can think of right now. But, I'll come up with more! Who are some of your favorite NPCs from your favorite games?

    Off the top of my head, I'd have to say Meryl Silverburgh from Metal Gear Solid.

    One of my favourites is Mordin the Salarian scientist in Mass Effect 2, for the simple fact that he suddenly bursts into song to the tune of the Major-General's song from the Pirates of Penzance, which made me laugh because it seemed to come out of nowhere and ended up being one of my favourite things in the game.

    Ignoring the squadmates because they're too obvious, one of my favorites in Mass Effect is Conrad Verner, the inept fanboy.
