[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]

One of the most important parts of a game is its setting or location. While not frequently discussed, where a game takes place can pretty much make or break an experience. A survival horror game with incredible gameplay can fall flat on its face if the atmosphere isn't scary, and a game that would otherwise be mediocre can become engrossing if you get drawn into its world.

This week, I want you to tell me about your favorite settings or locations in games, or, alternatively, games where the setting was so bland or uninspiring that it ruined the game for you. This isn't about gameplay or characters -- I want to hear about actual places.

To participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Location: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders, and make sure you look for promoted blogs from last week's topic, Mobility.

Bloggers Wanted: When did you start loving videogames?

We all have our origin stories. My first videogame memories are of watching my uncle play his ColecoVision and Atari 2600 in the early '80s at my grandma's house. Q*bert, Frogger, Asteroids, Battlezone, Dig Dug, BurgerTime, D...more
