Decided to replay Silent Hill 4, got to the Hospital part and remembered just how strongly i wanted to protect Eileen. Then it hit me, Eileen is the only escort character in a video game that i really cared about and wanted to keep safe *and i played through alot of escort type missions....*
I guess she was just really very well implemented *i don't even know if she can be killed since that never happened*

Was there ever a character that you really liked, that you had to escort?
Any game with a time limit must burn in hell...with the exception of Fallout 1, Mana Khemia and Mana Khemia 2 since those were actually good.

They need to die in a fire. Either the NPC is slow and it takes forever or the NPC is an idiot and dies easily. There are no fun escort missions. Worse than QTE.
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

There used to be an early WoW quest that had an escort quest that took like 20 minutes to complete. Which, if you were on a PvP server, could prove to be difficult. Thankfully it was in an out of the way zone and not heavily trafficked. It was still a pain in the ass.

That said, I hate them.
Ooo eee, oo ah ah, ting tang, walla walla bing bang.

I find "escort" missions to be a lot more fun when your escort is stronger than you are or if they come with friendly NPCs to help protect them.

Basically, I like to work WITH NPCs, not work against bad NPC AI.

I was thinking of making a poll for most disliked quest types and escort missions were going to be one of the choices (of course).
Immune to criticals, criticism, negative board level, etc.

God, I'd rather go through QTEs.
