LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 7/11/18 and 7/18/18 + Ignoring My Backlog

   0

Ever since I've had my PS4 (thanks Raiku and the Dtoid community), I've been steadily growing a fairly decent backlog.  Between gift cards, sales, and just not having a ton of time to play video games recently, it has been growing a very steady pace.  That said, when I do have time to play games, instead of catching up on my backlog, I've been replaying through games that I've already beaten multiple times.  Doh!

For example, right now I'm going back through all the Final Fantasy games that I own.  I just recently played through 6 and 7 and am now finishing up 9 and will then move on to 10.  I just really like the Final Fantasy series for the most part.

It's not my fault that something with the serie sjust resonates with me.  I mean I really love 10 and 12 sooooo much and am looking forward to playing back through them again.  Maybe once I scratch this Final Fantasy itch, I'll move on to some of my backlog.  I wouldn't hold my breath though as I've been telling myself to do that for months to no avail.

Fantasy 12, the best Final Fantasy and one of my favorite games of all time

M - Killing Hitler is always a fun time in video games. Adzuken gives us an entry in this month's bloggers wanted, taking out the trash, with killing Hitler. Adzuken gives us some examples of games that allow us to kill Hitler. It's a really fun blog that I think you should check out

A phenomenal Final Fantasy in its own right

Old school never felt so good

Where it all began!

F - As a master at reading between the lines, Dwavenhobble shows that he hates the Oscars. Honestly, I haven't cared about the Oscars for years

F - I've never gotten into Babylon 5, but after reading this blog from Narzack, I get the feeling I should remedy that

I didn't hate Final Fantasy 13 like some people *cough cough Wes Tacos

My least favorite of the Final Fantasy games I've played

Just remember, he who stands on toilet, is high on pot--Dere

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.
