"When we started our quest to find the Greatest Animal in the History of Video Games, we didn't know where we'd end up.
But after nearly a year of nominations and voting by our readers and a select panel of judges - Capcom's Morgan Gray, Gamasutra's Leigh Alexander and I Can Has Cheezburger's Tofuburger - we've finally got a winner.
Readers, you chose Epona, Link's horse from "The Legend of Zelda," who had 18% of the vote. A close second was Yoshi with 17%. In third place, was Sonic the Hedgehog with 11%."
