6. SurvivorsGAME: Dead Rising series
Escort missions are the bane of any gamer’s existence; nothing ruins an epic journey more than having to protect in-game characters who can’t protect themselves. And with that, we nominate Dead Rising’s idiot NPCs as some of the most annoying characters in gaming history. You’d think someone would be a lot smarter and faster in the wake of a zombie outbreak, but not these suicidal buffoons. They either lag behind or stand completely still while you're trying to guide them through hordes of hungry zombies, and tend to just stand there and scream while they're being chewed on. We give up—you can have ’em, zombies.
