Ughhh... I'm beginning to come down with a cold, I think, so I'd like to keep this short so I can get some rest and hopefully feel better tomorrow. Stupid winter weather, making me feel like shit...

In other news, Columbus's anime convention, Ohayocon, is going on this weekend and it's literally right across the street from where I live. I hope I'm feeling well enough to go check that out, because, in the five or so years I've lived in Columbus, I've actually never been to Ohayocon before. Although one year, me and a friend decided to check out the North Market on the same weekend the con was going on, and were surprised and entertained when we saw cosplayers roaming the market! There was also apparently a huge business meeting going on, as well as some cheerleading event, so the market was filled with an odd mix of cosplay, young cheerleaders and men in business suits. It was a really weird day...


Now picture this scene with Link perusing fruits and vegetables while cheerleaders and businessmen look on.

Anyway, I'm gonna go crash for awhile and try to sleep off this oncoming cold. Enjoy some good old recaps while I'm asleep!

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!
