Another week, another double dose of me all over your face! Big happenings this past week! Infinite Bits landed in Miami this past weekend and I hit it up on Saturday. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't make it on Friday to check out the Destructoid weird games panel. I had hoped that some of the crew would show on the following day so I could say hello, but the only person who appeared was Rey and I didn't want to interrupt him as he was busy filming and getting biznis done.

The rest of the show was pretty bitchin'. Ben Heck was there talking about his mad genius modding skills. Billy Mitchell was all smooth and shit. Egoraptor was Egoraptor, which is to say he was AWESOME! LIKE, OHMYGOD! HOTNESS! I WANNA BANG YOU! Finally, there was Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic. Cool guy. He's got a new video coming up and when it drops I'm gonna talk about it.

Of course, the big draw was the games. There was a slew of games spanning every console EVAR, but I found myself being drawn back to the big widescreen where a massive game of Saturn Bomberman was going down. Seriously, you guys, ten-player Bomberman is, like, the best game ever. No denyin'. I need to get myself a Saturn, a copy of that game, and nine other people. That stuff is dope.

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!
