LONG BLOG

Happy birthiversary kids. What an occasion. It's like Arbor Day, only the trees are alcohol and fireworks. If you got a minute, check out the Meme Page for a hit of Dtoid straight to the heart.

Given my all-too paltry talent, it's hard to imagine I can give word to the great spirit of our site, but stay with me as I stumble through. This place is about more than games; it's about community. We came here because of the first, but I don't think it's wrong to say that we've stayed together because of the second. Everywhere one might cast their eyes, camaraderie grows like virulent weeds. Seeds planted in this HTML garden spread out across the whole of the world, sprawling across everything from the communal roots of Friday Night Fights to the leafs of a certain journal. It's a sight fit to rival the grandest dreams.

There's too many thanks I can give, too much praise I can offer, simply too much glory I could throw at your feet, so let me keep this brief. I didn't choose my possessive adjective lightly up above this is our site, born of Niero, but raised by the passion, humor and love of each and every one of you. Oh, and of course, also cocks.

Anyway, all the birthday blogs get topsauce because I'm feeling jaunty. Deal with it.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
