This article is ridiculously long — 35 pages, according to Firefox's Print Preview. The RPG section's length is especially Egregious, and it's not even NEAR complete. (And probably never can be.)

Perhaps the sections should be converted into folders? I don't know that it's so long as to require subpages, yet — although if that's done, I'd suggest putting the Final Fantasy games in a folder of their own.

Thoughts?

Cap, as in lid of or covering of— More of a stretch to associate it as an abbreviation of capacity.

And yes, the word for a hat that is a cap is related to the fact that as staying more true to the word it simply form fits the head rather than expressing a style of any specific fashion.

"Word Origin & History

Cap O.E. cppe "hood, head-covering," from L.L. cappa "a cape, hooded cloak,"... late 14c. Of cap-like coverings on the ends of anything (e.g. hub-cap ) from mid-15c..." http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cap

Also the root word of capital (head of state). It all apparently comes from the proto indo european word kaput(implied head). http://www.myetymology.com/french/cap.html

"Cap" already has the definition of "an artificial upper limit or ceiling," so I edited the strange conjecture.

What's also worrying is that at the beginning of the explanation we have
Nor [is cap] the shorthand for "capture"
and then at the end end we have
In gaming, 'cap' can also stand for 'capture' or 'capturing'. But that's not important right now.
I'll try to think of a way to combine the two; I'm just wary of ruining someone's joke.
