LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/30/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

For those of you who don't know, today is my 1-year Dtoid anniversary. Yep that's right, I have officially been a part of this community for 1 year. I don't know if any of you ever read my very first post where I introduced myself, but it was pretty bad. You can read it if you like, but let me warn you that I pretty much broke every single rule ever written about how to properly write a proper Cblog introduction blog. I had no clue what I was doing at the time, I hadn't read the rules, and I basically sucked. I have definitely come a long way since then huh. Well to celebrate my 1-year anniversary, I finally wrote an actual introduction blog today. Feel free to check it out if you care to learn a little bit about me and my love for video games. You might even learn something that will shock and/or fascinate you. Who knows.

Before I begin my recaps, I would just like to take a second to thank everyone who has helped make all my experiences here at Destructoid so memorable. A community is only as good as the people who it's made up of, and let me tell you that the people in the Dtoid community are what make it so incredible. Thanks for a great year everyone. Now it's time to begin my second year.

It's also time to begin Saturday's 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.
