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

    *lists removed for length*

    Shall I Go On?

    Most of those are better than Headgear guys come on!
    We do one of these a week so if we did all the obvious ones straight off we'd run out of topics quickly and have only the weird, obscure and banal onese left. By mixing those in we get to spice it up with variety and keep the "good" (read: obvious) topics going for longer.

    So head-gear seems like a fun excercise:

    Space Marine Ultramar Standard Battle-Brother helmet:

    Assassin's Creed II Hood

    Crysis 2 nanosuit head-gear/HUD

    Fallout 3 T-51/BoS power armor helmet

    Gears of War Marcus Fenix Doo-Rag/ Bard's Goggles

    Ghost Recon Eye-Piece

    Batman's cowl a source of fear among hench-men everywhere

    Fable III crown/chicken head suit

    Brother in Arm's Matthew Baker Number 13 Helmet "Unlucky Number 13"

    Vaas Mohawk???

    Snake's Bandana??

    ODST Head-Piece Prototype tech based on Mjolnir armor.

    Nope! It's always good to have some ideas that are a little more obscure than usual, and we have plenty more ideas racking around in our heads. If you have any of your own ideas, we WILL consider them! It actually wasn't till I noticed a post on a previous Top Five list that the idea for quotes came up (weirdly enough).
    Where do you take suggestions, just here?

    Top Five Cleavages?
    If it's a genuinely good sounding idea that isn't dodgy (like cleavage), then yes. We can't think of everything on our own!
    Did i just read someone called cleavage dodgy..........

    I appreciate that concept C but Headgear is one that I don't think we'd ever need do, the list I posted above would last 6 months and I'm just one person rattling some out off top of my head. I could've went on a lot longer with ones better than Headgear that's all.

    Ooh just thought of two more:

    Just because you have to mix it up doesn't mean you have to be stingy.

    Duke Nukem Forever had the best toilet. You could pick up poo and throw it.
    Well, the Nukem toilets worked, and had the best achievement name ever, so the get +1 for plumbing, but the Borderlands 2 Toilets were definitely tops, for backflowing when giving you the loot, gotta get that dirty cash smile

    Cleavage is dodgy, but its overuse in gaming makes it a legitimate object of ridicule, you just have to phrase the topic in a way that mocks the material like, 'Top five games disrespectful of women / physics' wink


    You would think that DOA Extreme 2 would have this locked, but there are so many examples that go WAY over the top. Wraith Unleashed was the first game that made me stop and ask myself, 'is this where all the million polygons are gonna go in the future ?' Maybe...

    "You also can't help but wonder if the reason the Covenant are so peeved at the Spartans is because it's really annoying trying to communicate in a civil way ... where all you can see is your own ugly reflection and you can't tell what that person is thinking."

    loll that was a good one

    yeah the classic look of the MJOLNIR helmet (both Mk. V and VI) really do look good. the new design in Halo 4 is cool since I understand why 343 wanted a more tank-ish feel, but nothing beats booting up Halo Anniversary and seeing the classic 5 in ol' CE

    Nice! Was so happy to see Silent Hill 2 on here!

    Other mentions:
    Hatty Hattington's hat
    Assassin's Creed hood
    Fallout Brotherhood of Steel helmet
    They might not have been iconic, but some masks from Army of Two were kinda cool

    Outstanding article!

    Also, you got my two favorites in there: Sam Fisher's goggles, and Pyramid Head's......pyramid hat?

    So I'm all good. Thanks for a great read.

    Pyramid Head as #1!!! Perfect choice! MJOLNIR Helmet should have been 2nd.
    We at war with the army of haters and when we kill em we just smoke em like papers.

    "No more heroes" has that won, easily. (There's even an achievement for taking a dump in every single one lol)

    Just because you have to mix it up doesn't mean you have to be stingy.
    Glitches would be good, I can think of a few I've faced. The best I can remember is hitting a barrier in the SR2 online but instead of falling off I kept driving upwards in a straight line towards the sky. I could even reverse downwards.

    unfortunately they can't do Easter Eggs because they gave that title to their other utterly brilliantly titled articles.

    It would confuse a few of the gamers on this site too much who think everything the Newshounds "prints" is correct.
