LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 3/8/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So Yojimbo wrote a very interesting blog tonight about finally being "satisfied" with all the games that he owns. It made me think about the gaming industry and about how I hate how you buy one game, and the next big game is always right around the corner, beckoning you to buy it. This really bothers me. I feel like you never truly have time to enjoy the games that you buy, because if you do take your time with just one game, you get "behind". When you get to far behind in the world of games, you run the risk of having your games spoiled for you by your friends and by the wonderful natural rapist of the world, the internet.

Well I would like to announce that I to am "satisfied" with my gaming collection right now, and I don't plan on buying a new game for quite a while. Right now I have Gears of War 2, Metroid Prime 3, Dead Space, LittleBigPlanet, Ninja Gaiden 2, and Resistance 2 all sitting in my gaming cabinet ready to be played for the first time. It's time to be satisfied and finally play them, before I buy anything new. It's time to stop trying to keep up with the gaming world, and just relax for a little while. Who's with me on this?

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!
