C-Blog recaps of 2/23/13 + 2/24/13 + Shut The Eff Up-gasms

   0




BAH! BAH BAH BAH BAH! I'm grumpy. I don't want to be here. Oh well, I have a responsibility to do this and dammit I live up to those stupid responsibilities I have. To combat my grumpiness, I'm giving away some game, I bet some of you really want. Whatever. It's stupid. Screw this.

I feel like watching Up or the Grumpy Old Men series. Love those movies and they fit my mood. Maybe I should go play some Runner 2, hard not to smile while playing that. REALLY hard. Ole Gaijin made it's masterpiece with this one folks. It's long, hard (yet you can tone it down and use checkpoints if you want) and very responsive in the control department. I need to go complete some retro carts, so I guess that's what I'll do. First let's do this damn thing.

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!
