Cblog Recaps of 9/25: Y0j1mb0 is OLD Edition

   0


Saturday I turned thirty-eight years old. That means two years from now this gaming samurai will be forty. When I was the age of twenty, I never imagined that I still would be playing videogames at this age , let alone be even more passionate for the genre. I've seen my favorite pastime grow leaps and bounds yet like with everything there's so much more growth that it could and will accomplish. I remember daydreaming about owning games that were in the arcades in the confines of my abode. That has happened. I imagined playing people from all over the world online. That has happened. I wished new ways of playing videogames altogether. That has happened. What will the next thirty-eight years in the future of videogames bring to us very spoiled cynical jaded gamers?

Like in my ignorant youth, I can only imagine... except now I know my love for videogames isn't a passing fancy and I can't wait to see it happen.

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.
