New Destiny Footage and Why I Just Can't Seem to Care

Virtual Katz Writes: I understand that I am probably in the minority here. Bungie yesterday put forth another trailer for their upcoming title, Destiny, at the Game Developers Conference showing off a little bit more about the characters of the game. The majority of what we have seen up to this point has shown off the land of Destiny and the basic scenery for the game. Sony even went as far as bringing the game out for the PlayStation 4 reveal, in showing off what the game could do and on top of that, it would be a cross-platform title. All of this hype for probably one of the most anticipated games of the year and possibly next, pending the release date, but as I sit here and look at everything that has been presented by Bungie, I just don’t care. No matter how hard I try to get interested in the game, I just can’t seem to pull myself to have any excitement for the game. Destiny has shown off an incredible visual feat to this point, as the game looks incredible and the scale and sheer mass of the playable area is impressive, and that’s understating. Believe me, its not easy sitting here on the other side of the fence, from all the cool kids that are itching with excitement, knowing that everyone and their brother will be playing the game, but here I am wondering what all the hype is about and here is why.

I know what you mean, I think really it's just because I'm not into MMO's and it's coming across as just another MMO, but for consoles. There will be a pricing structure when Destiny comes out, which would put me off even more.

I agree. I'm not hyped by Destiny. Just not in to MMO's or suchlike games. Didn't like WOW, Diablo 3 (PC version), Simcity... or similar games with all that social crap.

I'm more into single player games.

The only multiplayer games i play are quick in and out games like call of duty or battlefield series.

I think the biggest issue is that they stretched out the mystery thing too far/long. People are ready to see a GAME, not "Bungie" next to another vague concept art. That's what has me lukewarm about the game...we haven't been SHOWN a game yet.

JasonXS121306d ago

I'm in the same boat. I just can't get hyped for a game based on concept work. What will get me excited is long gameplay videos to demonstrate the game.

Might be a bad example but it's like seeing a picture of a sexy girl on Facebook but when you meet them in real life, they aren't that great.

Lol. great analogy. I feel the same way. I have always enjoyed halo and considered myself a Bungie fanboy, but when i noticed i couldn't care less about destiny, i realized that I wasn't actually a bungie fanboy lol...

Its a huge open world (not bad) and is a FPS (ToT).

Also I dislike the pricing system of MMOs. Very lame.

kevnb1306d ago

I can't hyped because of their attitude. They barely show us anything but keep telling us how awesome they are. Not only that they have the nerve to insult PC gaming as if they already killed it.

HarryMasonHerpderp1306d ago

Yeah I know what you mean, in the first trailer they were blowing their own trumpet so to speak going on about how amazing Halo is and "how do you top Halo"?
I was like come on guys that's you're own game you're bragging about there's no need for it. You don't hear the Naughty Dog team making the Last Of Us bragging about Uncharted and how could they possibly beat it.

I think Bungie has sorely misjudged what console gamers like to play, but moreover the game simply doesn't look all that interesting.

ironfist921305d ago

Generic is the best I could think of when watching the videos.

As for the MMO aspect? No thanks, id rather immerse myself in amazing single player experiences
