Pixelitis Picks: Best A.I. characters not named GLaDOS

"When it comes to pop culture and science fiction tropes, the all-seeing artificial intelligence the either helps or impedes the protagonist’s efforts has created some memorable moments.

From the moment HAL 9000 went rogue in 2001: A Space Odyssey to the genocidal actions of AM in Harlan Ellison’s “I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream,” the proliferation of sentient virtual beings has spilled over into our sci-fi-based videogames, as well.

While GLaDOS may be heralded as one of the most cleverly-written A.I. characters in recent memory, we think there are some others that deserve just as much praise. Be it a malevolent, all-seeing stalker or a wise-cracking sidekick, we present to you some of the best AI videogame characters that have zilch to do with cake."
