You know the helmet I'm talking about. It has horns on it. It's famous.
So this helmet is low quality armor. I've played through the game a couple of times and I'm not even sure I've seen it. But so many youtube videos, meme images, and so on feature it as sort of a mascot for skyrim. Why? And where did this association come from? Is it one of those unfortunate instances where something that happens at the beginning of a game (encountering the helmet) becomes representative because a majority don't play through past a couple hours?
