What I thought was an endless pursuit of hats, I think has come to an end, with one exception. I've got all the hats I was really looking for in Team Fortress 2, with the exception of the elusive Max Head. Being a veteran of the original Sam & Max game.
As for my other hats - each one has a meaning as to why I wanted it:
Scout (there isn't any scout hat peaks my interest)
Pyro - Tiboniophorus Tyannus (Brain Slug) - For my love of Futurama, the greatest animated show ever made.
Soldier - Lumbricus Lid - For Monty Python and the game worms, of which I have enjoyed several iterations.
- Killer Kabuto - for my long time in and connection with Japan
- Chieftain's Challenge - for that part of me with is native american
Demoman- Samura-eye - same as killer Kabuto. Also before this hat was realeased, none of the demoman's hats appealed to me.
Heavy - Tough Guy's Toque - Jayne's hat, the first hat I had to acquire, and the only one I bothered getting vintage.
Big Chief - same reason as Chieftain's Challenge
Top Knot - same reason as Killer Kabuto, but also from those episodes of Abarenbo Shogun I've watched (I actually traded this hat, so I need a replacement)
Engineer - Professor's Peculiarity - for my third favorite movie of all time, Back to the Future and the only hat with a level I care about 88!!
Medic - Ze Goggles - for Ghostbusters, a really fun film
Sniper - I don't find any of the sniper's hats appealing, nor do I like playing snipers (too many
Spy - While it's my preferred class, I don't find any of the hats very appealing. I usually use the Detective Noir, which looks a bit like Indiana Jones' hat, or appropriately enough like the one Sam Spade wears.
Also I should mention my Towering Pillar of Hats, which I got as one of my first hats, from a server where some one was kind enough to invite me when he was about to open a Pile O Gifts. I didn't realize at the time that hat gifts are somewhat rare from the Pile O Gifts.
And of course someday I will get around to acquiring an unusual.
