LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 3/8/09 + SilverDragonisms

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
Crowdfunded

It feels like it's been a decade since we've seen the rise of the crowdfunded game. I'm always surprised when I remind myself that crowdfunding has been a thing long before the first crowdfunded video game, but nowadays a crowdfunded game seems like a dime a dozen.

Of course such a phrase is an incredible disservice to some of the great games that have come out thanks to websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Games like FTL, Shovel Knight, and even Undertale are around thanks to crowdfunding; thanks to people gathering around and literally putting their money where their mouth is, a game they want gets funded and inevitably the greater landscape of gaming benefits from it. Most of the time the landscape gets to benefit from it anyways.

Don't worry though, this month's bloggers wanted prompt isn't an exploratory thesis on the effects of crowdfunding on video game development. We just want you to talk about your favorite games, as long as they were crowdfunded. This topic can be simultaneously broad and narrow, because you can talk about whatever game you want, however you want, as long as it was crowdfunded.
For me, FTL is the original crowdfunded game, and it was great. It was somehow minimalist and incredibly detailed at the same time, and it was all done because a man wanted to do it, but needed the money, and thousands of other people wanted to see where his idea would go. Shovel Knight to me feels like this natural evolution of the classic 8-bit gaming of yore without also throwing myself back to a time when gaming was honestly comparatively archaic. And everyone's talked to death about Undertale, so we all know where I'd go with that.

To participate in this month's bloggers wanted, just start a blog! Oh, and title it "Crowdfunded: [your blog title here]." I bet this month is going to be pretty diverse, since it's basically writing about your favorite crowdfunded game. So I hope to hear about some good games revisited or amazing games no one has heard about.

Remember: Persona 5 was not crowdfunded, but excuse me as I plow through it.
