LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/15/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Hey Everyone! This is SilverDragon1979, the new Cblog Recapper on the block. I'm taking Qalamari's place the next two Monday nights since he has to work his butt off to get the bills paid. This is my first time doing this, so be gentle with me. I have to be honest and say this takes a lot of freakin' work. I have a lot more respect now for all the regular recappers. They are truely some hard working awesome people to do this for you every week. I'm not sure I can do as good of a job as them, but I'll try my best not to screw up.

For those of you who don't know, I wasted 2 hours of my life last night watching the 2008 Video Game Awards on SpikeTV. It was absolutely horrible. I wrote a pretty long post today actually about the top 15 reasons why I think the VGAs were such an epic failure this year. Did any of you watch it? What did you think?

Well anyways ... let's get to the recaps ... but first an awesome picture of a 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!
