On a whim last year, I decided to write a mildly humourous post about video game moustaches to help promote Movember, a movement in which men grow out their facial hair to raise awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. To my surprise, it ended up being the second most visited post of all-time on In Third Person. I have no way of measuring this, but I hope that the original post somehow made a positive impact on Movember.
Thanks to the success of the original, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to revisit the subject. There are a ton of gaming moustaches worth talking about, so why not? If you’d like to partake or donate to Movember, check out the website for more information.
I hope your month of love was a good one. Despite me having to dial down the daily content (and the time I spend gaming) due to real life, it’s still awesome to see so many people hit this site on a monthly basis. I’ll still keep writing as often as possible.
This month’s top 5 posts are an interesting mix of evergreen posts that never seem to go away and older posts finding new life due to current events. Click through to see what was the hotness in February.
The late 2010 success of In Third Person continued into the new year. While my blog will never reach the heights of an IGN or Kotaku, In Third Person has grown from a site with a few dozen visitors a month to a few thousand, which is really damn good for a pet project I do in my spare time. If you keep visiting, I’ll keep writing!
January’s top posts are an interesting bunch. I don’t think any of these posts appeared the last time I wrote one of these top 5 wrap-ups. If you’d like to check out the most popular posts of January, read on!
I’m not sure if Movemeber is an international movement, but it’s a really big thing in North America. Many men (and maybe women, I’m not discriminating) are growing moustaches to raise awareness for prostate cancer. I am not growing a moustache, because I do not have the facial hair follicles to grow anything that looks halfway respectable, but I will definitely donate to the cause at some point.
As a way of raising awareness to the cause, I thought it’d be cool to highlight some of gaming’s most definitive moustaches. This is far from a complete list, so I’d love to see what moustaches you think deserve recognition!
