So 2009 has been a year filled with drama in the Dtoid community, drama perpetuated by the idea of the "old" dtoid community vs. the "new" dtoid community. Today was apparently another chapter in the ongoing story of this struggle that just doesn't want to go away. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty sick of all the drama at this point. I'm sick of this whole idea of the "new" community vs. the "old" community, and how the new community is ruining what used to be a great site. I'm sick of everyone acting like children.

Everyone needs to get it through their heads that things do change. Nothing in life is constant, especially not something as chaotic as the internet. It is very true that change has come to Destructoid, but for the most part the only change I have seen is good change. Instead of embracing this change, we seem to be trying to rip Dtoid apart from the inside out because we can't deal with this change. Well it's time that we all get over ourselves and learn that Dtoid isn't about anyone of us as individuals, but about all of us as a community made up of extraordinary people. We need to get past this "new" vs. "old" bullshit and come together to make Dtoid the best it's ever been. If you can't do that, if you can't get past that, then you don't really belong here.

Ok ... I've said my peace ... now on with the Cblog Recaps ...

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
