LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 09/08/09 + Funkisms!

   0


So, it’s been a long time, but the Cblogs are getting FUNKY again! Our regular super awesome man of awesomeness, with a tattoo to match that much awesome, was extremely tired, and probably has ConSARS like myself, and pretty much everyone else that attended PAX, so I decided to relieve him of his duties for the Recaps.

I’ll be making my own blog about PAX in the days to come (which really translates to weeks . . . >_<), but all I can say is that meeting the best online community/family was truly something to cherish and all, and I’d like to see any other community have people fly in from across the USA, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and even Australia, to meet up with people they “met” online.

Since Mr. Squid beat me to the Recappers picture yesterday. Have a picture of me and Pendelton, only with my well traveled DOMO-KUN and his EPIC Destructoid tattoo!

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!
