    Definitely thought the Dead Space RIG should have come in the too 5, incredibly cool how it collapses down to cover Isaac.

    I suppose a lot of people haven't played Dynasty Warriors, but Lu Bu's headgear would have been great for this list. Also, I'm surprised the Rosie Big Daddy helmet isn't on here.

    Great list! But I would consider the Assassin's Creed hood, Borderlands psycho mask, Corvo's mask, Fallout power helmet (any), and the Payday 2 masks. Actually better yet, do a top 5 masks segment lol

    A very diverse selection! I don't think any of those games have been in a TA Top Five yet!

    Nice to see Kung Lao get some recognition for the weapon he wears on his head. I had so much fun playing with him in MK2 when I was a kid.

    Horrible list.

    I agree with Raiden, the Halo helmet is actually kinda boring, and pyramid head is just stupid.

    Bioshock helmet for sure, Darth Vader's helmet or Boba Fett, Tali's, Samus, or Terminator masks from Warhammer
    Life, it's funny that way.

    Pharrell Williams' Grammy hat! Wait...What was the topic again?

    Anyways, interesting list, while you can say that the MJOLNIR helmet is boring, it is certainly iconic of the franchise. Kung Lao's hat has that nice nostalgia factor to it, but I haven't experienced the others on the list to know if they are indeed the best.

    Whoever mentioned Monkey's headband from Enslaved, +1 from me. I loved that game, and it wouldn't have worked without the headband. The hoods from Assassin's Creed, especially Ezio's, would also be on my list.

    By "Bioshock Helmet" do you mean the Rosie helmet? Because there are a lot of helmets in the Bioshocks. Vader's and Boba Fett's helmets aren't that great. I agree with Samus though.

    Baird's Goggles, if you can class them as headgear

    The Masque of Clavicus Vile was pretty bitchin toast
    I'm sure many Elder Scrolls headgear could be nominated of course.

    Are we running low on topics here guys?

    Nice list regardless, I especially agree with the Headcrabs, although its a shame you can't where one yourself!

    How about the paste your face, or other body parts, in R6V?

    And my all time personal favourite, when the Necromorphs replace your own head with a theirs in Dead Space:

    Definitely the WINNER IMO!

    By Bioshock helmet - you can really take your pick. Any of the big daddy/big sister helmets - even the Boys of Silence helmets. The one I was thinking of though was the Bouncer helmet. Vader's helmet is one of the most iconic of all time. Others like Ironman, Carmine, Megaman, Brother of Steel/Stormtrooper helmets, Predator... so many interesting, iconic, or just cool ones in gaming and I'm only touching on helmets not even going into masks or other random headgear

    Alright list, glad to see Pyramid Head get some props! After starting Dishonored, I'm kind of fond of Corvo's mask. And if we're talking masks then the ones in Army of Two definitely stand out.
