Power armor has been a concept since well into the early 1950s when Starship Troopers the novel came out. Its abilities and sources have all but begun to enter the real world everyone from DARPA to the Japanese have begun making power armors.
The powered armor of sci-fi is mixed, specifically on what the operator of the armor will be wearing while donning the suit. Some works believe that future armored soldiers would ride into battle in their normal BDUs, like in Avatar inside the AMP suits, others believe that specialized interface suits would be worn, like those seen in Crysis 2, still others project the use of liquid cooling and ventilation garment like those currently worn by astronauts during EVA operations. Then lastly, we see some works project that the operator of a military power suit will be in their lingerie or even naked, as we witnessed at the end of some early Metroid games.  Some of this can be attributed to the carnal desire of humans and geeks, but it could be based in reality. The neuro-network could function more effectively with direct contact to the skin just like the main halo protagonist Master Chief. The Chief is naked under the MJOLNIR armor and we all see how fluid the Chief's movements are. Of course there is a major advantage of a user being naked under the armor the suit can literally access every muscle and nerve ending of the user. For my own stories the ISMF and naval special operation use the Scorpion Mk3 power armor which is normally worn over a specialized but not over the top BDU. The suits enhance the wear by 2 in categories of strength and 1.5 in speed. Its nothing major but most of the NSO can lift twice their body weight with ease.

Well, actually Chief and the other SPARTANs have a plugsuit like bodysuit with a temperature regulating gel. Between the bodysuit and the outer Mjolnir armor, there is a layer of reactive metal liquid crystal, which increases the strength of the SPARTAN. The metal can move and flow fluidly, and since it is a strong material, it acts like an even more lifelike version of an exoskeleton.

"The suit contains a gel-filled layer underneath a thick black armored bodysuit. The gel layer regulates temperature and can re-actively change its density. The inner skinsuit is made of a moisture-absorbing synthetic material linked to an environment control computer and the occupant's UNSC-issue neural interface." - Halo Nation wiki.

It is true, the neural systems are in direct contact with their skin, but they aren't naked.

Well thats not what the book Halo The fall of reach said. Well never mind that line is from Halo4 so I guess its just metroid and Guyver biobooster armor. Although being nude would probably be the best if you were in something as complex as the 2nd generation nanosuit. In Alcatraz's case he was dead but the suit link to his body directly.

In the end for Prophet/Alcatraz, it didn't matter what was underneath the suit since the nanosuit became his body. Literally, in the case of the ending of Crysis 3.

It was ancient advanced alien technology. Actually, the Ceph tech used in it was from the "primitive" Ceph who were trapped on Earth for millions of years in stasis, there's no telling what the Ceph that almost invaded Earth at the end of the game have.

Yes and we re-purposed the thing to kill the Ceph en mass, we wasted 20 years allowing CELL to take over

If Prophet didn't destroy the superhive Ceph vessel with the Archangel and close the Einstein-Rosen bridge (wormhole), Earth wouldn't have stood a chance. We barely survived the ancient Ceph attacks.

Oh yeah although those triwalkers couldn't take 400 rounds from a less than lethal SMG
