[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]
For a lot of us, all we want to do when we come home from a hard day of work is sit down, grab a beer, and play some games. The interesting thing I've found in talking to other Destructoid writers, though, is that we all do it differently: some people like calm puzzle games or story-heavy RPGs; I prefer blowing people away in Team Fortress 2. Your topic this week is to tell me about how you use games to relax and unwind. You can write a general blog about relaxing games as a whole, or focus on a specific title or genre.
Well-written and insightful blogs have a chance of being promoted to the front page. If you want to participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Relaxation: [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, Labor Day.
