Cblog Recaps: "10 Things You Don't Know About Me" Edition

   0


Today was one of those days when it's easy to realize how incredible the Destructoid community really is. If you are wondering how this whole crazy thing got started let me tell you. It all started with this post, written my me, Silverdragon1979. I came up with the idea when I realized I would really like to know more about all the people who make up this incredibly awesome community. At the end of my post I called on all of the members of the community to write their own post, telling everyone 10 things they probably don't know about them. I honestly didn't think anyone would do this, but boy was a proven wrong.

The first person to respond and write their own "10 things you don't know about me" post was Jesus H Christ. Then next up came Yojimbo, followed by The GHost. After that I posted a request on Saturday's Cblog Recap, calling on everyone in the community to sit down on Super Bowl Sunday and write their own "10 things you don't know about me" post. The rest, as they say, is history.

Today, people responded, and they responded in force. The entire community came out of the woodwork, including the staff and even Niero, to write about themselves. People didn't hold back either. Brutal honesty was getting thrown about in every which direction, as people spilled forth the secrets from their closets. It was honestly a very beautiful thing to behold. This is why the Destructoid community is so great. This is why you will not a find a better gaming site anywhere on this internet. This is what makes Destructoid what it truly is. One man's dream has become a reality, and that reality is called Destructoid!

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.
