Bungie's Jason Jones has provided some comments in regards to comparing his upcoming project, “Destiny,” to massively multiplayer online games.
I can't wait to play this game.
What's wrong with just calling it an Multiplayer Online games. Simply take out massive and there you have a new genre. In this case, Multiplayer Online FPS.
Sorry Bungie but your Destiny Game is just like a few other MMO's out there. 1. MMO = Massive Multiplayer Online and it can be ANY Genre. 2. Destiny is a Action Role Playing FPS MMO Sounds a WHOLE lot like FIREFALL (OMG my Avatar) made by Red 5 Dev team and I have been playing for it months in the alpha/beta so I have NO idea how Bungie thinks Destiny is different when it's NOT. Firefall is a MMO-RPG FPS or TPS shooter YOUR CHOICE, it has crafting and the PvP mode is a eSport http://www.youtube.com/watc... 3. I can toss in Survarium MMO-RPG-FPS-Survival but actually Survarium is way more complex than Destiny as it stands. I know Bungie have been busy with Destiny but sorry, your New MMO is NOT a new Genre. Destiny looks good and the first game in mind I'm gonna compare it to is FIREFALL! Apple to Apple Bungie. Firefall is so awesome!
So pretty much you haven't played the game, just read a few articles, and you're disagreeing with the lead designer on what he is saying the game is? That's just ridiculously stupid. If they say it's not MMO it's not, considering they're the ones deciding what the game turns out to be...
Have I played Destiny? NO! But have I read and watched every every piece of Media that Bungie has released? YES and going solely by what Bungie has presented Destiny is just like FIREFALL! Destiny is NOT a brand new genre or some brand new idea. So my problem is what the Bungie Dev says and what they actually have presented and so far Destiny is just like other MMO's out there. Bungie doesn't want to use the TERM MMO because it's not a popular term with consolers who view every MMO as being World of Warcraft. So yeah I'm challenging the Dev by what he is saying by what he has actually presented. So YOU can FEEL free to blindly believe the Dev like a FOOL which is why you pay to play MP online like a FOOL but I like to challenge things maybe because I'm a PC Gamer and we have voices. Sorry but some console Dev is not just gonna tell me what the definition of a MMO is when the definition is written in STONE!
Except its not massive multiplayer its connected online single player AND multiplayer that a lot of games are going this gen (The Division for example)
Just to point something out, it's Massive(ly). :) And i definitely wouldn't class it as an MMO. Think of it like Guild Wars. It's more of a Single Player game, but with added co-operative gameplay.
lol destiny and division are MMOs I know they're tryna say its new because the consoles kids will try to hate on it if they said it. This had been done like ATI said its not new even if its focused on small encounters its still the same concept
I agree because I think Destiniy looks like a bigger-scale version of Borderlands. I'm not excited at all.
This game looks great I just hope its something more than Borderlands with better graphics.
Bungie hasn't made a good campaign since halo ce... I'm skeptical at best of what they can do with destiny.
@kevnb You obviously missed Halo 3 ODST. The others were decent too, but compared to Halo CE and ODST they fall kind of flat.
So basically, they technically made an MMO but don't want to lose dollars from the people who say, "ew, MMO."
EXACTLY! MMO's are gonna hit the consoles hard this gen as MMO's have proved to be serious money makers on PC but right now many consolers do not like the term MMO! I think Sony/MS need to just run a campaign that educates console gamers that a MMO can be ANY genre, that all MMO's are NOT like world of Warcraft and MMO's are just as fun played with a group or playing it solo. Example, Planetside 2 is a MMO but it has just as much action and bang bang as Battlefield 4. you can play it solo or work as a team on the fly. I play Guild Wars 2 solo but it is cool to just out of No where decide to hook up with a group of people from time to time or just be moving a long and see a large scale battle and decide to join in or just watch.
''Example, Planetside 2 is a MMO but it has just as much action and bang bang as Battlefield 4'' Planetside 2 is a much bigger scale BUT a lot slower and no the BANG BANG is not on the same level. BF has way more BANG BANG in higher DENSITY AND INTENSITY. FACT Not trying to disgaree with your mmo points but BF as an MMO would be a lot less Battlefield as it is. There are reasons they are different genres and overall feel and experience is quite different.
hope the shooting is tight and doesn't feel like your just decreasing HP
Thats one of my main issues with MMOFPS games. It always feels like you erode hp with numbers. Technically that is what it is doing, but for example when we play Battlefield we dont realise the numbers we are immersed in the action, shooting mechanics, excellent and intuitive controls etc. I know what u mean. Just hope it doesnt feel as bad as Hellgate London's shooting bits.
I think you shouldn't really call Destiny an MMO unless it does multiplayer in a way that incorporates hundreds of players in one server at one time because that's what an MMO is about. I think you could call it a more interactive Borderlands that's always online or basically just a multiplayer co-op FPS.
Don't really care for this game to be honest.
For me it's mostly the art direction that puts me off and the fact that because it's MMO it's probably gonna have a silly story just like WoW which has a great lore, but the in-game writing is just stupid.
