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

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.
