I'm going to be filling in for Phil this Weekend. Hey Destructoid what's up? I'm at a fork in a road as of recently. I just graduated from community college and I'm still not entirely sure what I want to do. I'm going to be 22 soon (January 1st), and it finally is sinking in now that I'm becoming an adult. My brother is about to be a father to his first child in the next month, the sister closest to my age is now engaged and after she does all of my 4 siblings will be married. My parents are getting older and I can see their age. I really thought that audio engineer was where I wanted to be, but after I got a C in my Studio Recording Class this semester I realized that it's just not for me (I'm usually an A student) just didn't have that spark. Before that I was set on going to film school, and although I'm pretty good at film making I just lost passion for it. Right now what I'm planning on doing is getting a job, and seriously attempting to write a visual novel. I'm not really worried, but I guess I am sort of scared to see what happens in my future. It's just sort of life I guess you try things out they don't always work so you try something different. I'll figure out my path eventually.

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!
