LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/31/09 and 11/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

So I'm only 6 days away from my 30th birthday, and I have to tell you all that I honestly can't believe it. I don't feel like I'm almost 30. I feel like I'm 22 still, which I guess is a good thing. Part of me is a little freaked out though, because I had all these things I wanted to do by the time I was 30 and I haven't done any of them. Where did the time go?

So I would write more, but I'm extremely tired right now because I've been playing Borderlands all freaking day. I finally beat it tonight after 22 hours of play time. The game is freaking awesome, but the PC version suffers from a lot of problems. If you are interested, you can find my official review of the game up on Gamer Limit in a couple of days.

For now though I need to head to bed. I've been living in the world of Pandora the entire weekend. Tomorrow it's time to get back to the real world. I hope you all had a good Halloween.

Now onto your regularly scheduled weekend cblog 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!
