    Behind every great hero is a great sidekick, a "bro" if you will. Unsung heroes and loyal friends to the protagonists, they've always got their back and are ready to leap into action at a moment's notice. Sometimes they go on to star in their own games, and other times they stay in the background, but almost all of them have built up their own dedicated fanbase.

    I want everyone to nominate five video game "bros". These can be secondary playable characters, prominent NPCs, RPG party members, stuff like that.

    You can only nominate one character per franchise, so choose carefully.

    I received a number of complaints in the last tournament about the pictures and/or quotes I used to represent characters. If you wish, you can supply your own pictures* and quotes in your nominations and I'll choose from among those.

    *No gifs and no fan art that isn't an accurate representation of the way the characters actually look. Also, resize the pictures if they're very large.

    Anyway I say:

    Victor Sullivan (Uncharted)

    Dom Santiago (Gears of War)

    Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect)

    Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich (Metal Gear Solid)

    Claptrap (Borderlands)

    First round will be willy nilly. Based on how many people are voting, I'll come up with a X amount of votes to win.

    Why just 5 nominees and not the typical 10?

    1. Elika (Prince of Persia)
    2. Chloe (Uncharted)
    3. Yoshi (Mario)
    4. Packie (GTA4)
    5. Daxter (Jak and Daxter)

    Not exactly my top 5, but I chose people that weren't nominated already as they'd go in anyway

    As a GTAIV fan, I'm just curious about the fascination about Packie's sidequests....did you (and apparently others on this forum) like Packie that much? I thought he was a'ight and all that, but he wasn't nearly as fun as Lil' Jacob and others, imho.

    Packie was okay, but Yusif was the man.

    Soapy, do the nominees have to be humanoid characters or can we include non talking alien/animal characters as well?

    Ghost - MW2
    Frank Woods - Black Ops

    Because these tournaments typically go on for way too ****ing long in my opinion.

    No, they can be whatever. It doesn't matter.

    Oh, me!

    Dogmeat (Fallout 3)
    Diana (Hitman)
    Yusif (GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony)
    Cass (Fallout New Vegas)

    I guess that's it. Garrus and other have already been nominated, so that's cool.

    Ah damn, don't know either. Gonna have to watch the first match. How many votes does it take for a character to win anyway? Or do you just leave the match open for 24 hours and who has the most votes wins?
