Cblogs of 2/21/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Welcome to another exciting Saturday recap here at Destructoid. I'm your host, SilverDragon, and today I will be taking you on your tour of the day's cblogs. Before we begin I would ask that you please buckle your safety belts, and please put all tray tables, seats, and video game controllers in their up and locked position. Please not that there is no smoking or flash photography allowed on this tour, but drinking of strong alcoholic beverages is strongly recommended. We hope you enjoy your tour. Thank you for choosing the Cblog Recaps.

Before we begin our tour, I thought you might like to know what you host, that being me, has been up to. Well I've spent the last week beating the first 15 bosses of Shadow of the Colossus. By this time tomorrow I hope to have beat the final boss and moved on to one of the other many games I have to play. All I have to say is this game was absolutely incredible, and I can't believe it took me this long to finally get around to playing it.

Now onto the recaps ...

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!
