LONG BLOG

No Y0j1mb0, I didn't get the girl. :(

That's okay though because at the least I got a new Latin dance partner, and it isn't a completely lost cause yet. ;)

Busy times abound. Between work, spring cleaning (aka: yet another round of trying to get rid of all the shit I accumulate), and general real life stuff I haven't had much time for gaming. Thankfully LEGO Batman is there to not only entertain but relax me. :)

Overall some good blogs today. A few about Wrestlmania, which are making me nostalgic for the days when I religiously followed pro wrestling. Big shining moment for me was when I went to Wrestlemania X8 in Toronto, then Smackdown two days later in Ottawa. I still believe that the Canadian crowd's love for Hogan is what started his face turn that week, as we cheered him and booed the Rock despite him being billed as the face. I still actually have some left over memorabilia, including a copy of Tributes. I'd never start following it again though, as I've been out for far too long to even think about trying to get back in. Plus I just don't have cable, so it would just be too difficult to keep up with.

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!
