    the relation between Batman and Catwoman in Batman Arkham City was a pair I can never forget. It should be on the list.

    Bub & Bob are one of my favourites ! I played Bubble Bobble on ZX Spectrum when I was a child, and I'm still into it with my kids. As for Billy & Jimmy, it gave me a lot of beating on Spectrum playing Double Dragon 1. Ryu & Ken were also unforgettable in SF2 ...

    Monkey and Trip ought to be higher honestly, some of these feel like they got their spot purely because of nostalgia or how popular the game was. There was an actual story and relationship growth with Enslaved.

    Glados and Chell?

    Go back and play Jak through, 1-3(/X). Then tell me how they deserve their placement on this list. Jak & Daxter was fun, not really memorable, but had some heart. That said, there was no duo development. Jak II is a fucking mess in every sense of the phrase. Jak 3 is excellent - somehow undid most of II's problems, and made the duo likeable...somewhat. It's mostly Daxter that clouds your judgement here and makes them seem better, with Jak just being the playable character (and then an asshole in II). But never do they deserve top 5 placement in this kind of list, especially above Ratchet & Clank. There's no comparison there, considering one is effectively Sony's Mario and the other died off.

    Here's something I've noticed: no 2-female duo. Either none made their mark or the industry doesn't want 2 women as protagonists...

    The closest I can think of is Hana Tsu Vachel and Rain Qin from Fear Effect 2 on PS1, which are both games I'd love to see redone for this gen just on the off-chance any developer types see this ;)

    I feel like this list was decided upon more by popularity than how they actually are as a duo. Their level of team work should be a bigger factor than how high profile their game was. For instance Mario and Luigi. They really don't team up very often, besides being in the same game, unless it's a Mario RPG. I'd put their team work a lot lower on the list. Others like Ratchet and Clank I'd put higher because the two characters work together constantly both offering their strengths to get through. Ico and Yorda are a pretty short lived duo that consists of Ico constantly dragging Yorda around to protect her. Truly great duos are far greater than the two individuals that make them up. I also think Nate and Sully should be actually entries, and not just honorable mentions. They've been a team since Nate was a boy and have had each other's back ever since.

    The Billy and Jimmy Lee pic looks like Ravishing Rick Rude and Shawn Michaels are teaming up

    Sam and Max, Jak and Daxter, and Ratchet and Clank. I grew up playing those games. Now I just wish I could play another one and see them get recognition outside lists like these. Especially Sam and Max given Telltale's new reputation.
