10 video game creatures that would make awesome pets

Real pets are rubbish. If they're not pissing and shitting everywhere, they're trying to hump your leg or chewing on that miniature Master Chief helmet you paid 140 notes for. By contrast, video game creatures are clearly awesome. Most seem to lack the necessary anatomical parts to forge faeces, they never need walking and some can even fetch you a fern tree. That's why we've chosen the following collection of multi-talented critters - who between them can entertain kids, open cans of tuna and even win you huge bets - as our dream pets. Yup, looks like Fido will be taking that fateful trip to the vet after all.
