The Greatest Videogame Sidekick of All-Time

Next to every great videogame hero is a sidekick – giving you helpful advice, occasionally being annoying as hell, being sorta-but-not-too effective in battles, but always remaining loyal and useful. But amongst the innumerable sidekicks that have nobly fought (or helped out in fights) throughout videogame history, which one is the greatest of all? Vote for your favorite! Will it be one of your always-in-mortal-danger teammates from Mass Effect? An immortal mutant fox who can fly? Or maybe a friendly, selfless dinosaur? HEY, LISTEN! …the choice is yours.
