Cblogs of 11/26/09 + Thanksgivingasms

I hope everyone is fat and happy! I know I am! I made sure I was ready by doing my exercise routine before the meal was served. Nothing builds an appetite quite like working up a sweat!

I had promised my mother that I would join her in visiting Toys "R" Us for the midnight sale. I thought it would be fun, but waiting in that long-ass line was not fun. There was another line just to check out of the store. And you could just feel a chill in the air, that some disgruntled shopper could snap at any moment. That's why I don't do the Black Friday shit. This was a one-off, mom.

For all the bitching and moaning I do, I am so thankful for what I've got. I love my family. I love feeling needed and appreciated. I just love the simple things. A bunch of you have stuff you are grateful for and decided to share them with us today. Some cbloggers had a lot to say, while some just had quick holiday wishes. Today was a special day, so no matter how short your post was, no one got failed.

Drive-by wishes from Klipsched.
Cowzilla is thankful for the recap team and a whole bunch of other people and things of lesser importance.
pendelton celebrates a very Fallout Thanksgiving.
Sadistic actually remembers The Critic.
RoG from I-Mockery provides a Duck Hunt-themed video.
Eaten by a Grue is not thankful for a couple of things.
Pixelated Lilac has dance fever.
wanderingpixel loves fire.
StRAWRberree is employed. That's something to really be thankful for these days.
EternalDeathSlayer is thankful for stuff.

We've got a long month ahead of us. Let's keep our spirits up. Hey, at least you weren't forced to eat tofu turkey:

*- Kwazy Nate says video games can totally be romantic.

*- Stevil is really, really, really pumped for Rainy Woods... I mean Deadly Premonition.

*- The Genji series claims to be based on history? Charles Sharam calls bullshit and uses FACTS.

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!
