4. Tifa Lockhart – Final Fantasy VII

Tifa Lockhart, Tetsuya Nomura's confident, no nonsense Final Fantasy VII vixen, was a perfect foil for Cloud's emo musings. She wouldn't suffer his moping, and often chastised him for being such a grump. As adept with her fists as she was with her feet, Tifa proved immensely popular with series fans. Really, she's a pin-up girl for the gaming generation, and the role-playing genre's Lara Croft. If there is to be a Final Fantasy VII remake, or a new Final Fantasy game set in VII's mechanical world, Tifa's re-imagining would be of more interest than Cloud's or indeed Sephiroth's.

3. Dogmeat - Fallout Series

"You see one mean-looking dog" read the in-game description in the original Fallout. They weren't kidding, either: Dogmeat was so much more than just man's best friend - he was a furry little killing machine who would frequently save the player's life. In Fallout 1 you found him in Junktown, ferociously barking at strangers near the spot where his last master died. If you then put on a leather jacket or simply gave him some food, he'd be your buddy for life. Gamers went to great lengths to protect their little pooch, way beyond his intended lifespan, to the extent that there are still strategy guides online that explain how to keep him safe during Fallout's dangerous endgame. The mutt has since gone on to appear in Fallouts 2 and 3, but it's arguably his first appearance that remains his defining role. He's a dog who knocks bandits off their feet and then bites their crotch until they die. What's not to love?

definitely DOG is the perfect one, he´s funny and he saves more than one time in the game.

I think too in Linch in Kane&Linch, he´s a little bit crazy but he is a great freind, and takes a lot of bullets for you.

I think he meant on the screen where you click on to follow the article, the picture is number 1. I had forgotten about that but maybe if you get to number 2 and the picture hadnt came up then you would know what it was.

It was so pointless you had to love it. Especially after it followed you throughout the whole game!
And it's cute little voice, you make it sound like it shouted 'Hey listen',
it said it all sweetly and like a little baby :D

Why.......WHY IS NAVI THERE? Everyone i speak to about it hates it. "Hey, listen! HEY LISTEN!" over and over again.....

I remember Navi! Stupid Avatar stole that name.
I think Navi should have won actually;
(probably because that was the only game I've played in the list)
Not surprised to see Half-Life 2 and Portal in there some how, they always are in every list at least once.
Surprised there was no dog from Fable II though, guess you didn't think he compared to the dog in Fallout 3 then?

VG really needs to stop putting the first place as the advertisment

Interesting that Agro from Shadow of the Colossus is in the list, but not Yorda from its spiritual predecessor, Ico. She was, for me at least, the most memorable companion in any game I've played.

I'd squeeze out Tifa and stick Yorda in her place, and replace Dogmeat with Basil (my dog from Fable 2, I had Mr. Fawkes in Fallout 3 and he was too ugly to make my top 10).
