LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03/27/09 + Garisonisms + a little ScottyGasm

   0

Today I watched the amazing Studio Ghibli film, My Neighbor Totoro for the first time. It seemed different from the previous two Miyazaki films I had watched. Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away both seemed much more complicated of films than My Neighbor Totoro. In order to understand the first two, I had to watch each multiple times (and by multiple, I mean 5+), and I still don't completely get both them.

MNT is just a simple story about 2 young girls that live move to the countryside with their father, and have a sick mom in the hospital. Well, I guess it is a bit more complicated than that, but you for anyone who has seen all of the films together, you know what I'm talking about. That, or I'm just talking out of my ass.


EDIT: Hello! ScottyG here once again. Garison was having some internet troubles, so I volunteered to finish up the last remaining dozen or so cblogs and post it for him. Think of it as a nice, filling experience with Garisonism topped off by just a little ScottyGasm... just a little one.

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!
