More from me:

New game season seems to be upon us. I've not touched any of them. In fact, Mega Man 9 may well be the last new game I buy this year. Its not that I don't want to play Fallout 3 or Saints Row 2, its that sixty dollars is a lot to pay for a video game. Think about all the things that money can buy. According to the news, this year we should all be worried about saving money. Then think about the used games industry and how I can purchase at least two maybe three of last years best games for that same price. At the very least, I plan on picking up The Evil Overlord and Lost Odyssey. Those two look good for 20 bucks. I might even pick up one Rainbow Six Vegas. I saw it for fifteen at blockbuster and considered it.

I just feel like I'm out of the loop. Everyone is in betas or playing these new games, I feel left out. Mega Man 9 and Castle Crashers feel more like my kind of games anyway. If not for their cheap price or old school gameplay. The only thing that bothers me is the digital distribution. I can't loan out Castle Crashers or Mega Man 9 to anyone.

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!
