LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Let me just say, that today was an absolutely crazy day to do the recaps, thanks to all the "10 things you don't know about me" blogs that everyone wrote. I guess I can't really complain though, seeing as how I brought this upon myself. What can I say, I'm a gluten for punishment. I was originally going to list all of them in this recap, but there were just so many that I decided to create a separate recap. You can check the entire list out here.

One thing that a day like today helps me realize, is how awesome the Destructoid community really is. It also makes me realize how badly I want to go to PAX '09 to finally meet you all for the first time. I was thinking I could tag along with Yojimbo, since we would both be flying out of the same airport in Raleigh, NC. I haven't discussed this with him yet though. What do you say Yojimbo? Would you be up for some company on the trip? I promise to take all the tequila shots you want me to take, which I can only imagine will be a ton.

Well ... let's get on with today's recaps shall we ...

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!
