10 Best Video Game Sidekicks Ever

GuySpeed writes: Here you’ll find our list of the 10 best video game sidekicks to ever embark with you on a digital adventure.

There is nothing better than sharing a video game with a friend. Sometimes it is a person on the couch with you sharing nachos, but other times your friend only exists when there is power running through your console. These digital companions have been with you through the thick and thin of every one of your electronic adventures and would sooner leave your side then be erased from the disc by an electromagnet. They are loyal, funny, and the games they’re in wouldn’t be the same without them.

Here is our list of the 10 best video game sidekicks ever. (Fallout 3, Half-Life 2, Halo 4, PC, PS3, Shadow of the Colossus, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Wii, Xbox 360)

Might aswell put Daxter on that list. Squeeze him in that number 10, he can share with Knuckles.

1. The other online companion in Journey- well I cant give a reason as it would be telling too much. Just play it and you'll know
2. Alyx Vance and Dog - dam without them HL wouldnt be the same
3. Garrus- Best bud who fought alongside me till the end. Till suddenly Anderson spawns in lmfao
4. Cortana- Only one who supports my suicidal antics in Halo
5. Wheatley and Glados - both cracked me up whenever they had their time by my side
6. Agro - Without this horse buddy I would die of loneliness in that vast emptiness.

The last 4 are for so many of Bioware's games companions. Some from Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Kotor 1,2,SWTOR, Jade Empire. They prolly deserve a top 10 or lets say top 50 or so. SWTOR has 43 fully voiced/characterized companions by itself so maybe a top 100 list somewhere.

My favourite has to be Barry Wheeler from Alan wake. Hilarious guy.

In Alan Wake you spend nights in the woods, being chased down by possessed beings that are trying to brutally murder you, and it gets to you. Pretty scary shit. Then when you get to share some sections with Barry, it is a freakin huuuge relief and life-saver.

It felt to me like finding a Dr pepper machine in the middle of the desert. Never forget that game and the amazing feelings I got.

not that good of a list until the top 3 came in

1. I cannot imagine half-life 2 without alyx as my buddy throughout the entire game and the episode series
2. Cortana is amazing, especially in Halo 4, and for fans of both, go listen to malukah fenix's tribute song of those two on youtube for those who do not know.
3. Garrus is the best Mass effect character in the entire series PERIOD.
4. Tails is also one of my favorite sidekick character in Sonic 2 and 3
