TheManchild strolled through the halls of his dimly lit apartment, pacing back and forth as he often did while singing a jaunty limerick.

"Oh me Oh my, Oh Chicken Thigh, what oh what shall I do today?
There's Game Boy games
Steam sales galore.
I could paint my face like a
dirty whore
or watch some eps of
Jersey Shore
Oh Trolly-lolly-lay."

He went to the kitchen to get breakfast as he often did at breakfast time. Thick mounds of butter on toast, water fresh from leaking tap, and a puff or two of month old hash after his belly was full and warm.

"Ah what I fine and glorious day. There is nothing that could be better. Methinks I shall play some Star Wars on the Game Boy before retiring for a morning nap."

As playing, a thought crept into his brain; a wormy, slithering thing, burrowing into his skull.

"OH FUCK ME I FORGOT THE FUCKING RECAPS FOR FUCK SAKES. Is it fuckin' Friday already? Jesus Christ what the fuck!"

And now I'm here.

* - Games should be fun, and it's always nice to be reminded of this once in awhile.

P - A new Pocketoid is out! Go now. NOW.

A - Peter M. is up to some Kickstarter shenanigans.

A - A deeper look at Hitman Absolution.

F - I only recently went into an FNF and TF2sdays match. Couldn't get my mic to work the first time, got told my voice was awful the second. But goddamn was it ever a hell of a lot of fun. Don't forget to donate to Swishiees TF2 server if you like what you say. Does anyone have change for a Mars bar?

T - This is cool. I never did get around to playing Echoes, but kingsharkboi did, and thinks it is underappreciated.

T - Memories of Need for Speed. I remember the original game where Denis Leary would go ape shit on you every time you lost a race.

R - Code of boobs is a titly great funbag. It breasts the competition with boob. I'm sorry. I meant Code of Princess. And it's good. Boobs.

F - Sorry, but this is a forum post. Put it there instead. And yeah, I know I'm not failing the ads anymore. I have put them in the same category as "everything ever by Karutomaru." Like that person, we don't need to give them more attention.

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!
