    John Marston and Master Chief make great sidekicks to the Rad Hazard boat in Hydro Thunder Hurricane! It's true, they both make a cameo appearance! smile It's a shame both of them aren't at epic when compared to the Raz Hazard. Who could beat twin turbo V50,000 Engines, Flux Capacitors built within the electronic system and to top it all off a six pack worth of any underwear commercial! Oh Rad Hazard, you! Definitely the man of my dreams! redface

    Shadows of the Damned was such as great game! Johnson was hilarious as well!

    I actually haven't played several of the games on this list. I've only played Alan Wake, Borderlands, Banjo Kazooie, and Halo. I still really enjoyed reading the snippets!

    And yet you're better of using the AI than a co-op partner for

    First thing that came to mind: the dog in Fable III.

    Sure, he didn't do much other than help you find buried items that were (for the most part) not worth anything (although on occasion it did pounce on enemies that had lost their footing and finished them for me), but it was still an interesting part of the game.

    As an additional note, the caption under the RE5 spot on the list made me laugh. laugh I can think of several moments when I just let Sheva die (all the other times she did just fine getting herself killed), she's gotta be among the worst AI I've ever had the displeasure of playing cooperatively with.

    When I saw this Top 5 on the home page my first reaction was "they better have Barry Wheeler somewhere in there". And you did!
