Top 5: Video Game Sidekicks

SA writes: After my bitching and complaining about having a sidekick in Resident Evil 6, it seems like a good time as any to praise those who excel in this role. These are the often unsung heroes who make searching for treasure or saving the galaxy a lot less lonely. They may be a love interest, best friend, or programmed to be loyal, it doesn't matter. These characters got your back. (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Half-Life 2, PC, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Wii, Xbox 360)

I think Elena Fisher should of had a mention in there somewhere.

I would have just put the Uncharted series in general on the list and have Sully, Elena, and Chloe.

Trip is definitely a great sidekick in Enslaved

I'm suprised we dont see Clank or Daxter from Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter

Garrus Vakarian is awesome. Also, Mordin Solus is one of the best characters created this gen. Everything he says is genious lol.
