I would say good riddance you pious fucktard but you've made 3 posts since then. Can't you just admit you're a cancerous prick who took 4chan as a role model, fuck off and leave us alone? STFUAJPG dickwad.

The temptation to emo is rather immense right now but I'll resist and drop you an indie recommendation. 2 weeks ago I recommended Yahtzee's The Art of Theft to you and this week I'm recommending the John Defoe quadrilogy from the same guy. The 4 games comprising it start with 5 Days a Stranger and go from there. You can download them from http://www.fullyramblomatic.com and they're quite good adventures. If a little dated.

If you're in the UK, you should be watching Mongrels on BBC3. I would put a video up but I can't find any videos that are also viewable in the US. Track it down and enjoy.

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!
