We always forget the little ones. Our pet-esque companions of Videogameland, from Yoshi’s Poochy to Samus’ Baby Metroid, are more than adorable– they’re absolutely essential to both gameplay and plotlines. Without them, we’d be nowhere– so to speak. That said, all of us have our favorites– and it’s about time to tell us which ones and why.
‘Course, there’s only so much room in a poll, so go ahead and tell us if your favorite isn’t listed. That said, saying it’s your Nintendogs (or, uh, your Pokéwalker) is way easy mode. (But if you must …)
