I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and stuffed their stomachs full of delicious food. I ate enough for three people to be honest with you, so I'm pretty content. When I wasn't eating I was spending most of my holiday traveling, which didn't allow me much time to play games. My girlfriend and I have decided to not travel anywhere next year. If people want to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, they can come to our house and we'll cook them food. We aren't traveling all over the state again to visit multiple families. It's just not gonna happen.

When I did find the time to game this week, I played Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, and Modern Warfare 2. I finally got a chance to try out Special Ops mode in MW2, and I am completely hooked. My friend Chris and I are working our way through every level, not moving onto the next until we get all 3 stars. So far we are about 40% of the way through. I absolutely love it! Ratchet and Clank is awesome as well, but I don't want to say to much on that subject because I'm writing the official review for Gamer Limit. It's going to get a high score, I can tell you that much. Before I forget, I also downloaded GTA: China Town Wars for my PSPgo. I look forward to diving head first into that soon.

So how was everyone else's holiday? Did you all eat yourself into a comma and game till your heart's content, or was it just another weekend for you?

By the way ... for your viewing pleasure this week ... I present the Turkey Dragon ....

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!
