Top 5 Best Video Game Duos

What’s a hero without a sidekick? In almost every video game the main character has some kind of supporting character to help them along their way. Rather that supporting character be someone who is stuck to the other character the whole game or someone who pops up in a time of need. These character are some of the reasons why we fall in love with certain games.

Throughout gaming there have been a lot of characters that have grown near and dear to our hearts; not only for who they are but for who is there next to them providing support every step of the way. Dynamic duos are not uncommon in gaming. Out of all the great choices, what can we consider the top 5 best duos in gaming? (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Halo, PC, PS3, The Darkness, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)

My favorite duo is Link and Navi. So many people say shes annoying but i dont mind the "Hey listen" thing. I was little the first time i played through it and that "hey listen" helpped me out a lot x) lol

Captain Price and Soap for the win. :D

The only missions I actually enjoyed in the campaigns were the SAS ones, and thats primarily down to how much of a geezer Price is. :D

"Jak and Daxter"

There. How the hell did they not get mentioned. Seriously we grab a duo from a game based on a TV series but COMPLETELY overlook these two?

OK, I'll understand a bit if you limit to current generation games, but they technically aren't even doing that since Link and Navi are in the list.

I always enjoyed the Jak and Daxter duo because of the classic "odd couple" setup they had going. Jak is your stereotypical hero and Daxter is his comic relief. Originally Daxter was meant to be Jak's mouth as Jak originally was a "silent" hero; since Jak II this was not the case -- a major change in Naughty Dog's hero character tradition. Jak having a voice was jarring at first, but the very "animated" Daxter character made it much easier to accept the change and I think helped the duo work out more.

I can only end this with one thing:
"God I miss pants." - Daxter

My pick.

Jak and Daxter but Ratchet and Clank are pretty good as well.
