Good game, terrible loot design, story broken to make more DLCs.

I wouldn't call it a flop. I would consider it one of the top fps shooter for consoles right now. Story was lackluster but gameplay is really fun, graphics are pleasing, and dat good old bungie sound.

If they can fix the story and make that better, i think this game will be a winner, that said i'm not interested in destiny currently, i preordered, hated it, and im not about to spend another 50 bucks on expansions to play the improved game. I'm waiting for Destiny 2 at this point.

I also lay blame on the gaming press for their ridiculous hyping of destiny.

It definitely wasn't a flop despite its questionable quality, its done great numbers in sales.

I'll be curious to see how Destiny 2 pans out, hopefully without all the potholes they hit getting Destiny out the door it will be something for full-fledged. It has all of the right things in place imo, just needs some fine tuning and a coherent story.

This explains a lot. If the gif to the left is any indication of my attachment to Bungie's capability of generating a good story, it also goes a long way to explaining why I never picked up Destiny despite being initially very excited about it. Something always smelled a bit off to me, to the point where I never thought it was justified getting a PS4 to play it despite initially wanting to. And now I know why.

The game is good and addicting.. The story, just didn't make sense and that explains why..
I am still getting my money worth playing it.. I just hate to hear how much was stripped from it..
Part of me feel cheated.

What if I told you that I could be a PC gamer and a console gamer...

...AT THE SAME TIME!?


My thoughts ... Destiny has a story..However, it's mostly hidden inside the cards which have to be accessed externally from the game - and that sucks. Taken King is bringing the story out more, and I can see Bungie improving upon their game by lessons learned from some pretty terrible mistakes. Story aside, Destiny has some of the best shooter mechanics, gameplay, and graphics of any game I've played recently, and it's fun. The loot system actually isn't terrible, especially since Bungie has been improving it drastically as the game has aged. The raids have all been fun, and the game is only going to improve further. I don't mind Bungie going to a microtransaction model. To me, it's no different than if I played World of Warcraft or had a premium SWTOR account: I am paying to play a game I like. $40 DLC every year, with $20 every 2-3 months? That's cheaper than $15/mo for most pay-model MMOs. And quite frankly, I get more entertainment out of Destiny than I do SWTOR or WoW, or Eve Online...
