Cblogs of 4/19/09 + SilverDragonisms

I went and saw Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend. Has anyone else seen it yet? I personally thought it was just ok. It was a little bit more of a kids movie then I thought it would be, which was unfortunate. Pixar seems to be the only animated studio right now that can seem to find the right mix between adult and kid friendly movies. Oh well. If you haven't seen it, but you're thinking about it, I recommend waiting until the DVD comes out.

So now onto the community and the recaps. For the most part, today was another dreadful Sunday. A couple of people wrote up some good stuff, but for the most part there was a lot of fail going around today. As you can see, the Failtoid section is FULL of blogs for you to take a gander at. The most amusing blog of the day was from a GameStop employee who actually attempted to defend GameStop and it's business practices. You should check it out and decide for yourself whether he did a good job or not. Try not to be too insulted by him when you read his blog though.

Well let's get on with the recaps shall we ...

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!
