Dean should've been able to come back with you to Vegas. If that counts.
Or like @"Visible Earth" said, Christine
My vote would've also been for Ulysses if you spared him.

I agree with everyone who said the main temporary companions should have been able to go back to the Mojave with you. Josh Sawyer explained once that this was not possible since they couldn't re-hire the voice actors to re-record new lines for the base game characters to have in response.

For example, Caesar would definitely have a response to Joshua Graham in his tent but they couldn't get his voice actor back due to being high-profile.

I would have liked to see the DLC companions anticipated so this obstacle didn't exist, and I'm glad there are mods to keep them.

Personally, I always felt like Neil should have been a companion. He just camps at the base of the mountain eternally. So sad.

Neil to me seemed like he would have been perfect for that kind of role as a companion. After all, whats he got to do now?

How is it lorewise with Joshua Graham and Ulysses? I mean would it be realistic to have both as companion? I´m totally out of context right now, I know Graham was burnt in the pit and is against the Legion as far as I know and Ulysses is still with legion?It has been a while since i played those DLCs otherwise Christine is an awesome companion and should have made it, luckily there´s a mod =)

@DumbleCore I don't believe Ulysses is with either faction. Correct me if i'm wrong, but i generally play for the NCR and have always been able to convince him to fight with me in the missile silo at the end of Lonesome Road, so i don't think that would make him Legion.

And to having both as companions, i don't see any real issue with it. I don't think they've ever met one another. I'm sure Ulysses has heard of Joshua Graham, but never met him. It could make for some interesting dialogue between the two, though. That is something i wish we could have seen and had some actual lore for. So many missed opportunities in such a wonderful game. Thank goodness we have some truly spectacular modders in the Fallout community who can make some of these things a reality Smile

I hadn't even thought of that, but you're right. Neil is very underused. Like maybe there should be a speech check to convince him to fight your way up the mountain alongside you, rather than just leading the Nightkin away.

Then afterwards he can join you as a companion and you can find out why he chose to avoid living in Jacobstown.

@DumbleCore Ah, okay awesome. So he was aligned with Caesar's Legion at one point in his life but left later on. That makes sense. Seeing him and Graham interact would be really interesting then, much more so than before when I didn't realize they were both in the Legion at one point.

New Vegas 2. The hope is real haha Very Happy

Honest Dan felt like he should've been a companion. You go through the whole "Human Error" quest with him, and then he just disappears. He even has line that makes it seem like you'll see him again (if you end the quest favorably with him).

I also wouldn't have minded any of the Raider bosses in Nuka World.

I feel that Sunny Smiles should've been a companion, i mean she is the one that does teach you how to shot and helps you with assisting Ringo in the beginning of NV.

I feel that Christine from New Vegas should have been a companion after dead money. And that you could bring her to Veronica and get some sort of quest/dialogue or even maybe a special perk.

Personally, I really wanted Harland as a companion since he doesn't really have a place to go and he doesn't really follow Jason Bright's beliefs. Like if you don't side with the NCR, of course you wouldn't get Boone, BUT you do get Harland as a substitute and a perk that would most probably be called "Living Dead".

Any of the fiend leaders as companions would've been nice seeing as there aren't any evil companions in the game.

You also barely even get to talk to her, which was an awful- awful- design decision. Seems like a lot of those are going around in Fallout 4.

Sunny Smiles really felt like she belonged out there too, all that hand holding and Powder Ganger killin and you can't convince her to leave with you.

@ShanghaiBatz

You should check out the Fiend dialogue restoration, I'm sure you'd feel even stronger about them being companions than you do now.

@"Dewderson" that's the same way I felt doing all that work and you can't even tag along or even have like a relationship option with her would be nice to, I didn't really like the courser companion in Fallout 4 too much tho

Lyons in Fallout 3. I mean she didn't have a very big role and our only BOS in that game was a cyborg whos story wasn't very well fleshed out. Y'know?
