Also this, if not for the blatant lampshading:

Which game is that one?

Thousand Arms for the Playstation One.  Here's a reader review I wrote of it back in 2002, before I was on staff: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/thousandarms/Thousand_Arms-6.html

The game is quite flawed (disc 2 and the combat are not good at all) but I had fun with it all the same.  There were many funny NPCs, especially some of the villains.  I mentioned Ratchet, there was this one guy Bolt who was severely allergic to big words, and the emperor was priceless with his heavily reverbed voice exaggeratedly saying "evil" and "darkness."

I enjoyed some of the little stories for the NPC's in Persona 3, especially the girl student who stalks that guy student and how that story plays out.

Well, he wasn't a NPC (or was he, at that moment?),

Dogmeat, in Fallout. I did everything I could to keep him alive the entire game and succeeded, somehow. Easy up till the final base. Then it's not.

I also use a mod in Morrowind that lets me turn freed slaves into party members. So I'd go around freeing slaves and raising an army. Good times.

Anyway what's the difference with this topic from an other storyline topic? Because there are some moments from Albion and Legend of Mana that come to mind but they're pretty storyline-based NPC stuff. Anyway.

Albion - You get sent on a sidequest to essential get some magical boner pills for the king of some village. I'm not making this up. And in the process you discover this mute christ figure Crazy oversexed German game designers.

Legend of Mana -
Code:
<Matilda> Even though we're dead, I forgive you for everything you've done and still lov-- <Irwin> Go fuck yourself >:|
. Also anything involving Pokhiel or Putty because they were creepy as hell. Same for the Dudbears. I mean most of the NPCs were vaguely unnerving but those guys were just like "STOP LOOKING AT ME. EVIL."
