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

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
