Following on from last week’s poll, this week I ask about specific NPCs. The image above is taken from Azure Sheep, where if my memory serves me you had to protect Kate, a female security guard.
Beside the technical aspect of some of the minor bugs, which I am sure annoyed everyone, I found it frustrating to have to protect her.
The whole HL “thing” is about being alone and saving the world/Black Mesa/City 17 etc and having to worry about individuals is too much trouble for me.
I remember in Episode Two I killed Alyx by accident and the game ended with some text about “not protecting vital resources” or something similar. (If anyone is interested I think she was in the car and it fell over the cliff or something and I manged to jump out at the last moment!)
So, do you like to protect NPCs?
