Hello once again fellow dtoiders, and welcome to another Monday. Boo...

Not much to report really, Finally hooked up my modded Super Famicom last week and have been enjoying my likely too expensive copy of Terranigma. While there is a little bit of retro goggles, the game is still absolutely brilliant and was worth every penny that was needed to allow me to play it. I do plan to pick up Ghostbusters as well, but to be honest it'll likely wait as I already have way too many games on the go

A possibly surprise fail that I'd like to touch on is Tanukitsune's blog, where they continue their battle against their backlog of games. I used to be like that, keeping track of the games I haven't beaten yet. Kept saying that one day I'd beat them all. Even then however I would try to properly play a game though, as opposed to the quick run through with a guide that they are doing. To me if you're going to do that you might as well just watch the ending on Youtube and be done with it. Save a lot of time. Am I alone on this?

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!
