Cblogs of 2009/09/11 and ScottyGasms

Hello once again my pretties! Been awhile since many of you have seen any trace of me. Been quite an eventful few weeks for me, which included PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX!!! I'll be making my PAX cblog later today so I won't be boring you all with that.

Yesterday (recap day) was of coruse September 11th... the 8th anniversary of the WTC attacks, and I hope you all spent the day showing your respect for the fallen by not masturbating.

Americans Observing 9/11 By Trying Not To Masturbate

Speaking of which however, I see we have been given the ability to fap over cblogs which is a very welcome feature for sure. I'm not sure about you, but actually clicking a fap button instead of actually fapping will take a bit of getting used to but I think we'll manage. After all I'm sure you all dream about me fapping to something you've done, but it'll be nice to now know whether or not I actually did.

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!
