LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/16/2009 + Sykisms

So what have I done today. Somewhere between 'fuck' and 'all' might be the best answer. The reason for this is because I FUCKING FINALLY finished a Final Fantasy game on Tuesday and was struck by that weird thing where you finish a game and lose all willingness to play anything whatsoever. I got the same thing after finishing Assassin's Creed 2. However I did shrug it off to finish up the campaign in Modern Warfare 2, the only feeling that 'ending' gave to me is that the Modern Warfare series can go fuck itself. Nothing would make me happier than for Medal of Honour to come out next year and for it to be brilliant. It won't be brilliant because this is Medal of Honour, a series that rode on one brilliant sequence for several games, but I'd love it if it turned out that way.

Back to finishing a Final Fantasy game though. You may remember this blog I did earlier this year listing 23 JRPGs I had lying around unfinished. Well it took way too long but while I have revisited pretty much all of those games at some point the only one I've pushed to completion is Final Fantasy 12. Let me say that my pushing that to the finale only served to confirm my previous assertion that 12 is the best of the series. Hopefully I'll regain the ability to play videogames sometime soon. Maybe around the time I remember where I put my copy of Eternal Sonata.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Crowdfunded

It feels like it's been a decade since we've seen the rise of the crowdfunded game. I'm always surprised when I remind myself that crowdfunding has been a thing long before the first crowdfunded video game, but nowadays a crowdfunded game seems like a dime a dozen.

Of course such a phrase is an incredible disservice to some of the great games that have come out thanks to websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Games like FTL, Shovel Knight, and even Undertale are around thanks to crowdfunding; thanks to people gathering around and literally putting their money where their mouth is, a game they want gets funded and inevitably the greater landscape of gaming benefits from it. Most of the time the landscape gets to benefit from it anyways.

Don't worry though, this month's bloggers wanted prompt isn't an exploratory thesis on the effects of crowdfunding on video game development. We just want you to talk about your favorite games, as long as they were crowdfunded. This topic can be simultaneously broad and narrow, because you can talk about whatever game you want, however you want, as long as it was crowdfunded.
For me, FTL is the original crowdfunded game, and it was great. It was somehow minimalist and incredibly detailed at the same time, and it was all done because a man wanted to do it, but needed the money, and thousands of other people wanted to see where his idea would go. Shovel Knight to me feels like this natural evolution of the classic 8-bit gaming of yore without also throwing myself back to a time when gaming was honestly comparatively archaic. And everyone's talked to death about Undertale, so we all know where I'd go with that.

To participate in this month's bloggers wanted, just start a blog! Oh, and title it "Crowdfunded: [your blog title here]." I bet this month is going to be pretty diverse, since it's basically writing about your favorite crowdfunded game. So I hope to hear about some good games revisited or amazing games no one has heard about.

Remember: Persona 5 was not crowdfunded, but excuse me as I plow through it.
