10 video game creatures that would make awesome pets

Trico (The Last Guardian)

The ultimate shitting machine/come fertiliser factory is the ideal pet for money-grabbing farmers.

Cerberus (God of War II)

Screw pooch getting your slippers. This hell hound can bring you grot and booze.

Headcrab (Half-Life)

Brave the rain in style with a loyal pet that just happens to double up as a fetching hat.

Hunter (Resident Evil)

Are you a prospective pet owner looking for a convoluted way of opening cans? Then hot damn if this only slightly stabby monstrosity isn't the pet for you.

Sonic (Take a shot in the dark)
