[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]

We've got another lighthearted topic for you this week, and it's another simple one. As a child, I somehow managed to amass a weird collection of totally bizarre, useless third-party hardware. A giant magnifying glass for the original Gameboy? I had it. A Super Nintendo controller with eight additional buttons that didn't actually do anything? Yep. A memory card for the original Playstation that had almost 300 save slots? That one was actually pretty cool...

This week, I want you to tell me about some wacky third party gaming accessory you had. It could be something totally awesome, or something so stupid you don't even know why it was made. Tell me the story of how you got it, why you got it, what you thought it was going to do, what it ACTUALLY did, how it revolutionized your gaming life, or how you had to pretend to be excited that your big birthday present was actually a worthless pile of crap.

If you want to participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Peripherals: [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, MMO Stories.

What will you remember most about the 7th Generation?

[Amazing header by the amazing ZombiePlatypus] Love it or loathe it, the 7th Generation of gaming has certainly been a memorable one. When I look back 20 years from now, I think I will remember this, fondly, as the generation...more
