Been awhile since I've stepped in and did the Cblog Recaps thing. Hell, its been awhile since I've done the whole blogging thing too ( aside from my FNF duties ). I want to say its because I've been busy with real life, which really... I haven't. I'd like to say it could be all the games, new and old, I've been toiling away on, which I actually have but that's not the reason either. I think its because I lost my drive to create a blog here. I feel that I've said all there is to say about our favorite hobby within my close to four hundred blogs here. Fanboyism? Check. DLC? Check. Achievements/Trophies? Check. Sexism in Videogames. Check. The console wars? Check. Art in videogames? Yup. Old school games, New School, online play, try to think about a new angle or take about videogames and chances are I've written about it. I have reached a saturation point in my amateur writing/blogging endeavor where if I were to write/blog again, it would feel forced or worse yet redundant because I personally feel I would be repeating myself.

Which got me thinking.

Why does it seem like everybody is saying the same thing to each other again and again and again? Our general discussions or debates, when looked at or assimilated, all have a familiarity born of retread. Perhaps its me. Yet I can't shake the feeling that nothing substantial is being passed on or shared amongst ourselves. All to often I just see jaded gamers being critical of games not for the purpose of change but for the entertainment value of it. For the perceived coolness. When we're lashing out at games because of something inconsequential like the box art, for Christ's sake, you know we're starting to grasp at straws now. When eighty percent of most gaming podcasts have nothing to do with gaming and instead focus on sophomoric hijinks or nonsensical musings, it just seems we're not growing as a vehicle to cover, critic, and promote videogames like they should be.

With intelligence. With real love for the genre. Instead of prattling on endlessly about silly clownish shit.

Yet occasionally, out of the blue, there will be maybe not something new but something well said. Well illustrated. Well done. And not surprisingly it's found here. While my initiative to blog may be diminished, thank god you all have not stopped doing what you do. Expressing your authentic love for videogames. Because when all is said and done, what we'll remember here is not if this game sucked or that game didn't. What will be remembered is the clarity of your passion.
