Unfortunately Randombullseye was tied up tonight and could not do the Sunday night Cblog Recaps, so I have stepped in to fill his shoes. This is my 4th time doing the recaps in the last 6 days. Hopefully you guys have enjoyed my time here this week as a reservist. I'm not sure when I'll return, but you can bet it will probably be sooner then later. ;-)

So today was a crappy day! First of all I never got to play any games at all today because I woke up and cleaned my entire house with my girlfriend for 7 hours straight. That sucked, but at least my entire house is clean now! Then I had a bunch of people over to watch the Carolina Panthers take on the New York Giants for the #1 position in the NFC, and the Panthers lost. Seeing that I'm a Panthers fan, that was shitty way to end my night. Oh well, at least Christmas is only 4 days away. I'm hoping to get a new iPod to replace the one I had stolen 2 weeks ago. What are all you guys asking for from Santa this Christmas?

Well time to get to the recaps .... but first here's you daily dragon picture ...

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!
