LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/18/2009 + Sykisms

   0


Let it not be said that I never write anything in this space, I probably gab on for far longer than anyone else in fact. Never mind that today though, I have Assassin's Creed 2 arriving tomorrow. Yes I know I'm a day or so behind everyone else but screw that, I hate everyone who's been playing it since Tuesday.

What I will fill this space with is a little something I'm planning on bringing to the Cblogs sometime next week. If you read Negative Gamer (a site about which I have an embarassing amount of jokes) then you may have seen what are internally called the iGame recaps (or that column I never have done in time). Well I'm bringing that series to the Cblogs, I'll have a more details prep post up later this week but basically I play all the games put up on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel in a week and then pass judgment. It's extremely cathartic and has given me loads of great games over the 7 months I've been doing it. Hopefully it'll remain as important to me after the move.

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!
