Sad because all the games you wanted you couldn't afford? Well rejoice! Christmas is around the corner and chances are since you've all been good boys and girls, you'll all get those games from loved ones and Santa. I bring this topic up because like all expert holiday shoppers, I do mine preemptively. As in now. Can you believe I'm almost done all of my Christmas shopping? Sounds absurd but it's true. Screw that fighting a smelly crowd to get something twenty bucks cheaper.

If you haven't started to do your holiday shopping I encourage you to do so early. Get that shit done so when the time comes you can do what I do, laugh at the people who waited to the last minute and are waiting in stupid long ass lines in the freezing cold.

Anyway to the recaps. Spoiler Recap: there were plenty of awesome, quirky, strange and just plain fail you may have missed.

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!
