I'm not sure if I mentioned this yet, but starting this week I will officially be taking over the weekend recaps until RandomBullseye returns. Unfortunately I have no idea when that will be, so I might be here for a while. It's best you start getting used to me now. Please note that I do expect some type of compensation for my recapping services. Considering I am a dragon I prefer a nice virgin sacrifice. However, in the case a virgin is hard to come by, a good slab of meat will do, preferably a bacon wrapped filet. Oh yes, I love meat!

Well I gotta get back to playing Fallout 3. I'm currently about 45 hours into it, and I feel like I still have another 45 hours to play. This game is just incredible, and if you haven't played it yet you should. Actually if you haven't played it yet you are doing a great disservice to yourself. You shouldn't even call yourself a gamer. You know what, just leave now and never come back to Destructoid. Now for the rest of you who have played the game, good luck in the Wasteland.

Now let's get to the recaps ....

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!
