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
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!
