This happened.

I'm not an official editor or anything. I'm still just a guy pretending to run with the wolf pack. It's like a restaurant that advertise a "world-famous" dish when you damn well know that no one has heard of it outside of Bumfuck, Indiana.

In other news, Birthmark Destructor has been banned and we can all breathe a sigh of relief! The news of his departure has sparked a mini-meme of sorts as you will see below. Can't say anyone is gonna miss him.

But then this guy returned a few days back. We all knew it was gonna happen, but it's disheartening nonetheless.

So cheer up! Enjoy this "world-famous" assortment of video entertainment!

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!
