Cblogs of 11/14/09 and 11/15/09 + SilverDragonisms

Right now I'm extremely exhausted because I've probably played Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer for about 20 hours total in the last 3-4 days. For me, that's a hell of a lot of time to put into any online game in that short of a period, with the exception of World of Warcraft. When WoW was first released, I was probably putting in 10 hours a day the first week. I was addicted. Suffice to say, I am having an absolute blast playing MW2 multiplayer on the PC.

What I feel bad about is that my girlfriend and a bunch of friends got me the Renegade Edition of DJ Hero for my birthday last weekend, and I have probably only played it for 2 hours. Considering how much money that thing costs, I need to sit down and invest some serious time in it. The game is awesome btw, it just hasn't drawn me in yet like the original Rock Band did (my first rhythm game experience). Hopefully I'll play it more this week.

I hope you all had a good weekend. Let's get on with the weekend recaps 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!
