C Blogs of 06/18/10 + World Cupisms

   0


I'm not talking about E3, I think enough has been said about that already. Instead, let's talk about the World Cup. (Wow, a British guy talking about the football. That isn't clichéd at all.)

So, I've been supporting a very good team for the Cup. They're called Anyone But England. It seems I've made the right choice, as England have been pretty crap for the last couple of games. I've included a few of my favourite moments from the tournament in the recaps. It was better to watch them live, but if you've never seen them before now, they will probably be enjoyable.

Oh, in terms of Dtoid stuff, this was probably the dryest day I've ever had to recap. That doesn't mean there was nothing good though.

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!
