LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6\15\10 + Rerunisms

   0


I've finally done it, folks. After months and months of letting my other account get cluttered with dust and vanilla-frosting-filled condoms (I'm assuming), I'm finally going to revive my dormant cblog tomorrow! If you've only known me for my writing I do here, be prepared to be amazed and delighted by what I can show you when given more room than a paragraph above the recaps. I will have a new episode of my long-lost cblog series Level-Headed, featuring my favorite zombie-inspired level in a game. I will then follow that up with a couple of other posts as the week continues. Hopefully, you all will take me back into your loving cblog arms, where I will feel loved and kinda sweaty. See ya tomorrow!



*- What a great way to start my night: Om Nom On Souls talks about the most poignant moment of E3.

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.
