So, this week was my friends birthday and, like most people do, he decided to have a birthday party. I went round to his house with everything you take to a birthday party, only to find that I was the first one there. Now, for some bizarre reason, he had set up his old PSone and challlenged me to a duel. If I could get through the entirety of Crash Bandicoot, he would give me half of his birthday money.

I almost had it. I had gotten to the third island when that stupid machine gun boss killed me. Sweet! After that, more and more people started to arrive, including some drag queens (Why they were there is beyond me.) I barely remember the rest of the evening, but I DO remeber waking up next to a naked man. At this point I left the house, because enough was enough.

Also, Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver came out yesterday! I'm planning on getting it today or tommorow. I'll post back here with my friendcode if anyone wants it.

Now on with the caps...

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!
