When I pick up armor Im usually thinking that this will help me and could take more damage, but wrong.I found out while I was working on getting the melee kills for the achievement that goes with it that I could get killed and still have armor points...Whats the point?Why would they let you get armor if it really doesn't do anything for you?

I thought the same when i first played it, but armor is like damage resistance rather than a shield, so for instance if you get a fire ball thrown at you with no armor you'll loose, say 10 hp, now if you have full armor which i think is around 125 depending on your console, the fire ball may take off 5 or so hp and you will loose a few armor points, hope this helps
