LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 15/02/11 + THE POWER IS MINE-ISMS

   0


Nascent plans like vapours have drifted long and far, coalescing with the steadied care of tempered ambition. The subtle discourse of gentle zephyrs has gathered these cottony plots, machinations wafting together on the breeze, slowly building to a furious storm head.

And now, now my surging multitude, my scurrying masses, the obstructions before me have evaporated, carrying me ever upwards in their wake. Here I float, above the modest earth, higher than the greediest mountain's peak. With all the boundless power at my stead, I look down on your piteous works and know that I am now forever beyond you. My laughter is the peal of thunder on the wind.

Cast your eyes skyward and know that your heavens were a lie. This world and everything in it is mine at last. Judgement is at hand. The tides of sorrow will wash upon your luckless shore.

Do you feel that? That cold, all-pervasive damp? That is the wild tempest of unending tears on which I soar. My reign has come at last.

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!
