So the Escapist is running it's usual fanboy war this year pitting developers against each other in a giant flame war. However something entertaining has sprung out of it. Zynga, the company known for paying a company to make them a game, saying it wasn't good enough then changing the artwork and releasing it anyway have been dominating. Thanks to offering game credits for voting and tweeting about the contest (this year tweeting about the vote earns a second vote) Zynga has taken out both NCSoft and Infinity Ward. So the forums have banded together over one common goal. Get. Zynga. Out.

Their next contest is against Rockstar North, but everyone's waiting for the one after that to really lay the smackdown. If the biggest scammers on the net can take the GTA creators down, they face Turbine. The reigning champions despite having only released a handful of fairly average MMOs but proudly holding aloft a hugely devoted fanbase. I'd recommend keeping an eye on this thread tomorrow because I have a feeling the shitstorm is going to be on the Sterling scale.

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!
