LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/18/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

It is just me, or have a lot of the older members of Destructoid completely stopped posting as of late. Well that's not true, because a lot of the older members have come out to post about the recent drama. Not counting that though, it really doesn't fell like the older members are posting anymore. I don't know why that is, but I do know it has left the Cblogs feeling very empty and "blah" lately.

This emptiness, left by some of the older members, has started to be filled by newer members who are bringing their own flavor of writing, creativity, and art to the Cblogs. Some of these people, who I recommend you check out, include Tehmtnlion, Mikey, Rampancy, and seigfreid. They all have their own unique styles and personalities which I think adds a lot to the Destructoid community, and make the Cblogs not feel so empty anymore. There are many other newer members, of course, who also contribute a lot to the community, but unfortunately I can't name everyone. What I can say is that the Destructoid community is growing by leaps and bounds, and I hope we are all giving the new members the chance they deserve to shine.

Ok now onto the recaps .... but I of course can't start the recaps without your daily dragon picture. :-)

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!
