So the other day I wrote a post asking the dtoid community to help me decide what game I should play next. I listed 6 games, that I currently own but haven't played yet, and asked which of them would be the best game to play now that I've finally beaten Fallout 3. Well the response from the community was pretty unanimous, and I would like to announce I have decided to play Shadow of the Colossus for my next game. I have actually already started and just got to the 5th boss, which is the flying Colossi. Damn this game is just incredible. Thanks so much for the recommendation guys!

Well I hope you all had a good day. I have to say that there were a bunch of really good blogs today, which is a nice change from the large number of crappy blogs that I had to read last weekend. It's nice to see people getting out there and finally writing something that's worth reading. Keep it up guys.

So let's get to the 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!
