Hard to take this seriously without any mention of.. well... ANY horse in Mount & Blade.

Glad both Shadowmere and Agro made the list, especially Agro since you develop a real bond with that horse. Haven't ridden any of the other things on the list.

No love for the dragon riding in Skyrim? ... Good because that was a huge let down.

OT: As far as I can remember, the best companion to ride on was a dragon but he was your main ally throughout the game.

The game was called Drakan: The Ancients' Gates and the dragon's name was Arokh whom was like the coolest dude ever (until Skyrim came out and i've met a much better one. Hint: He shares the same voice actor as Mario).

You not only had control of Arokh and the flying was actually stable to enjoy... but Rynn (the girl who had her soul tied with Arokh's) could learn things which transferred into the dragon, allowing him to breathe fire / lightning / weird elements. Ahhhh that game was fun. So old, yet I remember it quite well.

The original thread had a mention of Mount & Blade if I recall correctly.

I'm just glad that this list went by without any mention of mecha or bioware romances

I agreed that mechs could be a list all their own, and tried to adhere to some standards on the definition of "mount."

Edit: Nevermind, posted in the wrong thread somehow.

Ruin and Shadowmere are on the list? Yup, they are. That means it's a good list.

No Epona? I spent as much time on OOT riding her around than I did playing through the rest of the game back in the day.

Was thinking the same thing. Actually, considering there have been no Wii-U reviews on this site for a hefty while, i'm starting to think there may be some Nintendo denial cult forming behind the scenes.

OT. Oh, darksiders i remember now! Yes definately my favourite too. That goes for the green flamed one in the sequel also. Just being able to summon it from the ground casually as you're running along, feels pretty badass!

Ya.... there's a reason it has "Mount" in the actual title. Mounted combat (and combat in general actually) is quite fantastic in these games.

No Chocobos?

No Epona, no Yoshi... much disappointment.

The powers that be purged the ardent Nintendo fans from the site after the rest left of their own volition. I think everyone knows exactly who would be writing the Kirby review if he were still here.

Yoshi was an awesome mount. It'd be great if Super Mario 3D World had included him.

Came in expecting to see Agro from SotC. Was not disappointed, sir.

One of the possible mounts in The Old Republic is a Rancor.
