Who’s your favourite gaming sidekick?

At the moment, I am hopelessly addicted to Mario Kart for the Nintendo DS so this article by the Daily Telegraph was quite interesting.   It asks who the greatest ever gaming sidekicks are and offers ten candidates.

I vote for Yoshi!

Quite often, as I am finding with Mario Kart, the sidekicks tend to eventually take over the game.   Yoshi is my favourite character in SM while Mario doesn’t even get a look-in.

Is that the same with you?  Do you have a favourite gaming sidekick?   If so, who is it?   Did they make the Daily Telegraph list?   Why do you like them?
