I'm going to be completely honest with all of you. Last night I got extremely emotional and practically cried my eyes out as I watched the final episode of Battlestar Galactica. I say this without regret, and without being embarrassed, because what I watched last night was 2 of the most beautiful hours of cinema ever put on the small screen. The episode had everything from epic battle scenes, to touching and deeply emotional death scenes. It took you on an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning to end and never let go until the screen faded to black for the very last time. If there was ever a way to end a television drama, that episode was it.

For those of you out there who have not yet watched or experienced the 4 season long arc of the new Battlestar Galactica, you are truly missing out on the best science fiction drama on television. You don't even need to be a fan of science fiction to enjoy it, because the truth is, the show is really just a drama, that happens to take place in a science fiction setting. I have watched this show for the last 6 years, and I can say without any doubt, that this is the best science fiction show on television. I can't tell you how many times I have watched this show and had some type of emotional response to it. Whether that means jumping up from my seat and screaming out in joy, or lowering my head as tears streamed down my face, this show packs a punch. The story telling and character study is presents is absolutely at the head of the class. It is a show that I will always remember, and that I will probably watch over and over and over for decades to come.

Good bye Battlestar Galactica. You will me missed .....

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!
