LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/10/08 + Nintendollisms

   0
This is my first time using the new C-blog recap account, so exciting! Just so you know, if you get comments from C-blog Recaps on Fridays, that's me :)

Lots of new people today, also don't forget to wish Droobies a happy birthday!

I'm very excited about tomorrow's DtoidNY's trip to haunted places in NJ + Centralia PA. Hopefully we won't get arrested and/or swallowed by a fiery sinkhole. The night will hopefully end with us getting wasted and playing video games, eventually passing out on Tino's ice cold floor. I'll make sure to get plenty of photos :) Good times for all!

Since recaps didn't go up yesterday, anyone who wants to post their own blog posts or favorites from yesterday should do so in the comments. Don't want to miss out on some quality blogs :)

A recapper's note on TL;DR Parts 1-7: Part 1 is worth reading just for the epic comments.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
