    According to Merriam-Webster, Cambridge Dictionary, and Oxford Dictionary both "milliner" and "millinery" are words.

    There may have been a small spelling error, but that's all.

    We've had all the obvious ones then? Achievements, Characters, Guns, Vehicles, Bosses etc

    Is there a list of all the previous Top Fives? Never mind I found it:

    Vacations
    Companions
    Weapons
    Substances
    Sequels
    Tearjerker Moments
    Soundtracks
    Untouchables (Characters you wish you could kill but couldn't)
    Co-op Games
    Characters You Couldn't Save
    Time Limit Achievements
    Enemies
    Pointless Collectibles
    Scariest Moments
    Beverages
    Boss-Battles
    Games of 2005/6, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013
    Romances
    It's Complicated (unconventional character relationships)
    Game Trailers
    Deadliest Protagonists
    Holiday Party Invitees
    Settings (as in environments not game options)
    If I Could Fix Just One Thing . . . (Xbox One)
    Quotes
    And now Headgear!

    So we haven't had such obvious ones as:

    Top Five Achievements Of All Time
    Top Five Grinds
    Top Five Funniest Achievement Names
    Top Five Worst Buggy Achievements
    Top Five Viral Achievements
    Top Five Vehicles
    Top Five Outfits (as in apparel)
    Top Five Gameworld Vendors
    Top Five Achievement Description Misprints
    Top Five Most Regretted Game You Started
    Top Five Custom Leaderboards
    Top Five TA Solutions
    Top Five TA Reviews
    Top Five TA Walkthroughs
    Top Five Songs You Like To Drive To
    Top Five Songs You Like To Kill To
    Top Five Oldskool Games You'd Like To Be Remade
    Top Five Laughs
    Top Five Sexiest Characters
    Top Five Most Annoying Enemies
    Top Five Most Annoying A.I. Buddies
    Top Five Cutest Enemies
    Top Five Most Dangerous Back-Firing Weapons
    Top Five Enemies You Didn't Really Wanna Kill

    Shall I Go On?

    Most of those are better than Headgear guys come on!
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    Instead of Top Five Most Annoying A.I. buddies, how about a just Top Five Most Annoying/Least Likable Protagonists? And may I nominate Hope Estheim and Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII for that list?

    Surprised that the Night-Vision goggles from Splinter Cell didn't get a higher spot. You see 3 green dots on a black background, and that's all you need to know that it's for Splinter Cell.

    Also a little surprised that the Assassin's Creed Eagle Hood didn't get at least an honorable mention.

    The other picks were OK, but these two pieces are iconic and integral to those games and their personalities.

    117's MJOLNIR helmet isn't special without Cortana inside it. So to generally say all MJOLNIR helmets are iconic is pretty silly. It's really only 117's helmets (Mark V & Mark VI) that are so special in the Halo series. I know other Spartans were paired with AIs but none as special as Cortana as she was the only AI modeled (mentally & physically) after Dr. Halsey.

    Anyway, I don't think Pyramid Head should have been top 5. Maybe if it were top 5 stupidest looking headgear. Snake's EYEPIECE should have made the list, not his headband. facepalm

    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!
    Lol I had to use a skinless human anatomy picture for those achievements

    I assume you write and copy edit for free then, because otherwise you're applying professional expectations to a volunteer...

    In other words, don't be a tool. Fair enough to point out the spelling error, but there's no need to be arrogant and intrusive about it.

    Isn't there also a grammatical error? In a post about the importance proofreading.
