LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/25/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I can't believe it! There was not a single fail blog today. I must be dreaming because I honestly didn't know this was even possible. It's like pitching a perfect no hit game in baseball. I feel like I should go and celebrate and get drunk to commemorate such a rare event. You have to realize that this might not happen again for weeks, months, or even years. I'm just so shocked at this point I don't know what else to say!

Just a quick couple orders of business before I go. Just wanted to mention one more time that I am officially taking over for RandomBullseye on the weekends from now on. I also wanted to announce that Garison will be permanently taking over the Friday recaps for Nintendoll starting this week. He's completely new to the recap experience, so please everyone welcome him and wish him luck.

Well, let's get to the recap shall we ....

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!
