Valiant Hearts: The Great War recently provided players with an intense historically-driven experience via its cast of unique characters - including a medical dog. Seeing this dog utilized in the game made me think about other video games which have utilized dogs in some manner. What were some of the best dog sidekicks or playable pups? Here are the ones that stand out most to me."
