Gameplay feature: Controllable pet companions
Group DescriptionThis 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.
