Okay, everyone. Today's recap test community member game thingy is extra challenging today, not because it is hard to figure out, just because of my terrible touch pad mouse skills. Anyway, rules are, try to guess what Dtoid community member is depicted in the above MS Paint picture, and first person to leave the correct answer in the comments is automatically the winrar!

I used to own a copy of Final Fantasy VI for the SNES, but due to stupidity on my part, I sadly lost the game (aka sold it for $5 to some kid). Years later, after discovering the internet, I learn that it is one of the best RPG's of all time, so of course I have to go out and buy another copy on eBay. Well I got my $40 copy in the mail -- along with the instruction booklet XD -- and I have yet to play it. I played Puzzle Figher with the Retroforce crew last night, and today I played a heck of a lot of Paper Mario on the N64, but right when I finish that game, I can't wait to start the classic. God I'm dying here.

I also got a new avatar. I got a hair cut, and dyed it a crazy colour, so I decided to just change my avatars for everything, too. But who cares about that, on to the recaps! :D -------------------------------->

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!
