Cblogs of 1/31/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So the other day I wrote a little post I entitled 10 Things You Don't Know about Dragons. The idea was to tell you some things about myself in an attempt for the community to get to know me better. In my post I mentioned how it would be great if other members of the community could create the same type of post. Pretty much I was calling on the community members to reach out and try and get to know each other better. So far a couple of people have actually followed suit and written their own "10 things you don't know about me" posts. I've listed some of them below in the "topsauce" section.

I am calling on everyone in the community who reads this Cblog Recap to sit down tomorrow, on Super Bowl Sunday, and write their own "10 Things you don't know about me" post. Anyone who does, and takes it seriously, will be featured in tomorrow's "topsauce" section. The best part of this community is the people who are in it, and I think it would be great if we could all get to know each other a little better.

Ok now time for 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!
