Firstly, I would like to give a big ‘Thank You’ to Silverdragon1979 for doing the weekend recaps. You’re awesome doing this every week and I would like to salute you for it.

This past week I’ve been playing a lot of Killzone 2. I just unlocked the Scout so I have been having some fun with that.

In other news, some dick on Goozex is trying to get me banned for accidentally sending him Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life instead of Another Wonderful Life. Apparently a simple mistake on my part, and failing to give in to his blackmailing, equates a banning in his mind. Apparently I made his little girl cry because she got the wrong Harvest Moon and wasted 200 of Daddy's points. Hopefully that all turns out okay and I just get the negative feedback instead of losing my account and all that credit I have built up.

I also finished Dante’s Inferno and started playing it a second time. It’s an awesome game and I can’t stop thinking about it.

With that I'll leave you to the recaps...

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!
