C-blog Recaps of 12/26/08 + Nintendollisms

   0


Ah, my last recap of 2008. Good times, bad times, and everything in between. Dtoid, editors and community, made my year super awesome, so thanks for being so amazing. Special thanks goes out to all my homies in Dtoid NY for always being awesome and picking me up at Penn Station cuz I get lost real easily. Also, our parties are better than Engadget's.

I know this video is old but my sister just showed it to me today (yesterday?) and I thought it was awesome. It's a clip from the Ninja Turtles Christmas Special. Audio is NSFW.



On to the day's recaps! I know it's the day after Christmas and everyone is playing with their new toys, so it's understandable that there's not too many blogs. Just don't make it a habit, k guys?

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
