Monster Hunter X
Felynes are doing it for themselves: your diminutive allies are no longer supporting players but hunters in their own right. They’re capable of tackling any regular quest and Capcom has given them exclusive bonus missions, too. Their attacks may not be as powerful, but with no stamina gauge they can keep their weapons unsheathed at all times and dig their way out of trouble. And mounting beasts? Not a problem when you’ve got your own portable trampoline.
