LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/17/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Njsykora unfortunately couldn't do the recaps tonight, so I'm filling in for the 2nd time this week. I have to say recapping went a lot more smoothly for me tonight then it did on Monday night. That could be because there were a decent amount of Fail blogs today, but it could also be because Monday was the first Cblog recap I ever did, so I was pretty lost and confused. As I already said though, tonight went much smoother and I am glad it did.

So Yojimbo has been giving me a lot of crap lately about not buying SOCOM for the PS3. He enjoys reminding me that I make more money then probably most of the community members on Dtoid, and that I should therefore have the money to buy this game. He has been bugging me about the game for over 2 months now. I am honestly starting to believe he is never going to stop, and at this point I'm willing to buy it simply to shut him up. UGH!

Anyways .... before I start the recaps let me present to you my daily dragon picture .... enjoy ...

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!
