Let's talk about memes, okay?

They drive me up the wall. Seriously, they make me go Lady Gaga. Imagine my surprise today when randombullseye convinced half the planet to go all Top 10 on my ass. I've got to organize that shit. Recap team, you've dealt with this before? Why didn't you warn me? Look at this mess! LOOK AT IT! I'm swimming in it!

You know what the shame of it all is? Some of those lists may have actually been on the level. Some may have had serious merit. Some may have genuinely wished one Samit Sarkar a happy birthday. But we won't know. Why? Because I lumped them all in one big heaping shit list. In fact, every blog today is an honorary fail blog. The fail-fail blogs are quadruply so. There! You see what you made me do?

I'm fuming! I could... I could... I could huff! I could puff! I could...




*- Tascar responds to Sean Malstrom and once again his comments become a hotbed for intense debate.

*- walkyourpath's musing about stupid A.I. partners and NPCs is written as an email circulated among villainous artificial constructs. Totally awesome.

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!
