Maybe its just my natural papa wolf tendencies, but I've always been really protective of kids in video games. Ellie (and Sarah, sniff) from The Last of Us, and Justus Harkin from Killzone Mercenary come to mind. I just wish there was a hug button in these games
Anyone else feel this way?
Also, both Last of us and Mercenary had the perfect escort missions, Both Ellie Justus are invincible, help you, and most importantly, stay out of the way when the shooting starts.
