Topical Tuesday: Create Your Sidekick


Link had Navi. Don Quixote had Sancho. Ratchet had Clank. Every superhero worth his or her weight has a trusty sidekick.

The sidekick helps the hero during his or her adventures – providing helpful hints along the way, solving difficult puzzles, and even taking a bullet or two. All the while, the sidekick is happy to let his or her flawless hero take all of the credit. Sure, the sidekick might have located the bad guy, but it was the hero who shot the villain in the face.

Welcome to Topical Tuesday! Every week we ask the community a question related to our weekly magazine topic. Our goal is to begin an intelligent discussion based on a topic that’s uniquely relevant to us as gamers and nerds, and the industry we love. Opinions are welcome, but please justify your claim with support – such as quoting information from one of our featured articles – even if that requires a little research before posting. Please use examples to back up your opinion.

You’re the superhero. The head honcho. Now, design your perfect sidekick. Is he or she paunchy, or lanky? Talkative or taciturn? Animal or human?
