Is Daxter annoying or lovely?

Addict of Fiction share some of their views on Daxter, the much loved side kick to Jak.

"The one thing that stood out to me was the way a few critics reviewed Jak’s sidekick Daxter. He has received mixed reviews throughout the series, being called annoying and funny on two different sides. One site listed him number five as “Top 5 Worst Videogame Sidekicks”." (Culture, Jak and Daxter, PS3, PSP)

Lovely? Perhaps 'lovable' is the word to use. But no, he's annoying and cowardly - the gaming equivalent of Arnold from The Magic Schoolbus.

Please let this be a normal day!
With the Jak? No way!

I've got mixed feelings there. He's sort of funny, but can be annoying at the same time.

Arnold was a victim of an irrational world.

From "Daxter", PSP.

Annoying. But the game was lovely!

He was cool, but then after he got his pants and his own game, thats when he went obnoxious.

Daxter (Jak and Daxter) is like Clank (Ratchet and Clank).

Both sidekicks have amusing personalities that contrasted well with the main characters tipical hero personality and that made the games much more entertaining.

So id say is lovable because he´s anoying because that gave the games a less serious tone to it and the Daxter animations are still amazing to watch.

I disagree. Daxter is nothing like Clank. They are both sidekicks but thats where the similarities end. Clank was always dull and boring to me. Daxter is full of himself, hes funny, yet inside hes a coward. The equivalent from Ratchet universe would be cpt. Quark.

I dont think Clank is boring at all he says pretty funny remarks in my opinion.

i think daxter is hilarious.......i have no clue why someone wouldn't like him. part of why i enjoy the games is because of dax - i wouldn't be a fan of the series if they were just "jak" games.

Daxter is lovable, I couldn't imagine Jak without Daxter. It'd be boring because Jak has typical "hero" attitude.

lovely, as a matter of fact he is the heart of the series with his humor and charisma, i mean he got his own game witch in my opinion is among the best psp games ever created and i can not wait for the hd remake, heck i loved him so much i bought the sliver psp bundle with daxter even tho i already had the limited edition star wars bundle.

Jak games would be annoying without Daxter,because he's just a bore.

Daxter was annoying in the game but wasn't annoying to me. There is a difference. He played the part of the annoying talkative sidekick very well but wasn't annoying so much so that I wished he would shut up and go away. @ PidgeottosCrew Annoying yes but cowardly no. He sticks with Jak no matter how dangerous the situation gets, he put his life at risk many times to help the mission along (remember when he let himself be strapped to a missile so he could guide it to the target?) and he put himself at risk and searched everywhere to help free Jak. If not for him Jak might have never gotten away
