Gameplay feature: Controllable pet companions

Group Description

This group contains games in which the player is able to control a pet, an animal or creature, during gameplay. The pet usually becomes part of the party of adventures and can have its own equipment, spells and skills. Role-playing games most often fit into this group.

Exclusions (these do not belong in this group):
  • Games in which the main character is an animal/creature.
  • An animal/creature that simply accompanies the protagonist, providing hints or comments, but cannot be controlled.
  • Simulation games in which a pet can be taught tricks but is otherwise not controlled by the player.
