Best Companions: Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2

Best Companions: Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2

Vote for who you consider to be the best companions only. Of course, "best" can mean a lot of things but this is just a popularity poll for fun. Unlike the previous polls you may vote for as many as you like, rather than just one! This poll lists the 47 contenders across BGBG2, the EEs and Siege of Dragonspear.

The poll is embedded on the right sidebar so smartphone users may have to switch to "full view" in order to see it.

You can drag over the contents of the poll to see the votes more clearly (drag from the bottom, up).

Here are the portraits for all original BioWare companions, manually extracted by me and doubled in size for your viewing pleasure.

  1. Just wondering, why isn't Wilson very popular? :(
    He's my favorite companion out of every RPG besides MotB's Okku. Sad to see he doesn't have much love.

• You can italicize, bold and underline portions of your text with simple HTML formatting elements. Likewise, you can include clickable hyperlinks with the basic HTML tag.

• Blog is moderated due to influx of spammers, trolls and bigots. I can spot a troll a mile off and hit it right between the eyes with fire and acid.

• Comments of a personal, political and religious nature are ignored. Comments with "isms" are ignored. Blatantly off-topic comments are ignored. Criticism of Renaissance RPGs based on degenerate current gen fads, trends and "sensibilities" are ignored.

• Remake-based comments on my Infinity Engine retrospectives don't get through the gate. This blog is about original-game narrative that has been in an authoritative state for 20 years. I don't care if a remake fixed this or broke that; I don't care who made the remake or who sanctioned it: there is only one authoritative version of a game, and that's the one released and patched by the original devs.

• Use zoom function of your browser to make the blog more readable. In Chrome, that's Ctrl and Shift and +. (And yes, I recommend that you view this blog with Chrome.)

Thank you for commenting, and have a lovely day!
