LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/22/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So today, after an intense week of 16 non-stop boss battles, I finally beat Shadow of the Colossus. I just want to thank all the people who persuaded me to play this game next. You were all totally right, and I am really glad that I did. I don't want to say too much now, because I want to write my thoughts up in a blog which I'll post in a couple days, but all I can say right now is that was one the most incredible video game experiences I have ever had!

So is everyone ready for the final week of February? I know I am? How many people are getting Killzone 2 at the end of the week? Please raise your hands! I got a chance to play the demo this week, and I have to say I am pretty excited. I must admit it doesn't seem to bring anything new to the FPS genre at all, but it will be nice to have a PS3 exclusive that actually can live up to the hype. After all the other failed attempts, like Lair, Haze, and Heavenly Sword, it will be nice for the PS3 to have a game that it can hype to sell more systems. I hope to see you all online next Friday night for the first Dtoid Killzone 2 FNF. Until then, this is SilverDragon signing off ....

Now to the recaps of the day ...

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!
