Why Destiny could be the most promising and most fun future for MMOs.
From some of the previews that I've read sounds like this game could be better than Titanfall. Can't wait to see more.
I'd put my money on it.
They should add 'on consoles' at the end of the heading as Destiny is not the future of MMO's on PC when we have amazing games like Wildstar (which I played beta) on the way. Destiny is looking like a great online shooter which I've pre ordered for my ps4 an got my beta code ready.
I'll bet on Bungie every time. It's a pretty safe bet. :)
the recent video that showed, looked pretty mediocre in all factors. I hope the final product is far superior to what we have seen.
I wouldn't really compare this to Titanfall. A competitive arena shooter vs a mmo/co-op hybrid. Mind you, I know I've always been more excited for this than Titanfall. I once said that the future of mmos on consoles is one that combines genres together (got quoted in 360 magazine). I'm A BAWWWS. No but seriously, this is what Destiny does and now we're seeing this and The Division doing that.
Hard to compare the two. Titanfall is an arena style multiplayer shooter. Destiny is more of a coop adventure game with competitive elements, like Borderlands (except more epic).
not sure why you got disagrees this game looks like its going to be great. cant wait to see more from e3
I Dont see what's so special about this game. The gameplay footage was kinda boring. I do get why people started comparing it to borderlands which was boring to me too. Games like these just give you something to shoot. I Dont even think it was any recoil on any of the guns in the demo they showed . I pass seem like people hype up any next gen game no matter what. I'm surprise people are not downplaying it because of the gfx. We know how much gfx matter on this website
A lot of good points are made. If Bungie can make Destiny fun to play alone and make playing with others enjoyable, then we are all in for a treat. I liked playing WoW but hated having to put together groups of people to do quests that I couldn't do alone. Trying to get a bunch of people on the internet for a single goal, all while they are completely anonymous, is near impossible. The urge to ruin all that was worked towards is a temptation that people give into too often. Leroy Jenkins!
Not impossible with matchmaking similar to Borderlands drop in I believe. MMOs don't really have this feature, but it would be nice I believe.
That's generally because MMOs connect you with so many other people and they expect you to meet and join up more naturally than matchmaking is. I prefer the safe and sound approach with games like these. Public games are not really something I'm into.
If the game furfills all the things they are saying on reviews and conferences, then I think it will be one of the best games ever made, like the last of us for instance
Something about this game that i just cant get excited about. I think im gonna just wait for Gears, and Halo.
A new gears or halo game is just the same old with one or two new weapons added or changed this is awhole new game but hey its your loss!
I think that's a bit of an exaggeration, at least specifically for Halo. No two Halo games were exactly like in single or multiplayer. The weapons often changed and they've added so many new features since the first game.
I hope Halo 5 goes the more competitive route felt like i was at some summer camp with Halo plastered around playing Halo 4 where i got sucked into being one of the camp leaders cause i was so good at it while anyone who felt that the old Halo's were " too competitive " had to go around making pretty pictures of AA's and being given pretty paper meche armor when they won an event. Gears I doubt I'm coming back for, I feel as though its done and I seriously dodged a bullet in not getting the newest one because that game was honestly trash.
I'm still a bit confused on what makes this game a MMO, I understand it has co-op multiplayer but I'm not sure where the mmo part fits in.
So far they haven't shown anything that indicates an MMO. It's pretty much co-op Borderlands with slightly more players. Oh, and online only.
It really isn't an MMO, but players will be able to interact with a lot of other players through public events and things like that. It will be as close to an MMO style level of interaction as possible without actually being one, or at least that's what it is to my understanding.
Destiny is not a promising future, at all. MMO's have already been turned into solo games, and grouping is a secondary option. More and more are turning into Action games as well, which is cutting down on abilities for the average player.
Which ones because the only one I can think that describes that is Elder Scrolls. FF, WoW, all the f2p MMOs are 99% grouping quests 1% solo
I can't think of any MMO's in the past few years, which favored groups over solo. Mainly it's because of a focus on story, instead of the keystone of MMO's that is gameplay. Ever since GW2 released, limited action bars have been appearing in more games. Soon we'll end up with the chaotic gameplay that had.
You're wrong Roc. You made a silly statement just admit when you're wrong. The only MMO I've heard favours Singleplayer is ESO and SWTOR they both suck and one went free to play an the other will join em. MMO's like WoW and FF14, Wildstar (played beta) keep the favouring to group content and rewards u for playing with others. You won't get far solo in those games. And that's how I like it. Love playin with people an against people cause I'm a PvPer :)
The coop part of Halo was always my favorite, at least in the first two games and Destiny is definitely taking that experience to the next level. Everything feels very familiar to Halo from a gameplay perspective so far and I think that is a good thing. Just deliver a great story to go along with the cooperative experience and it can't go wrong!
It's not an MMO!! Bungie has said so many times. It has some MMO elements, but is classified as an action FPS. Reminds me of Rage. This game had RPG elements to it but was an action FPS. Many reviewers reviewed it as an RPG and the scores suffered more than they should have. I fear the same for this game. This is my most anticipated game of the year
There is a difference between accessible and utterly simplistic and insulting to someone's intelligence. I have yet to see a developer manage to distinguish between the two which is why I cringe every time I hear the word "accessible" being used by a dev.
Finally someone else who understand "shared world experience" is just pr spin for MMO.
With 500 employees, there's a good chance many of the positive comments in this thread are posted by Bungie employees. Just sayin'. Personally I think it'll be fun. I won't pay a subscription, though.
Yup, I totally work at Bungie. No way in heaven could I POSSIBLY just be a normal gamer with a genuine interest in Bungie's cool looking new game. ;P
Why do i have the feeling this generation MMOs will overtake and overburden the market the same way First person shooters did last generation? I truly hope we don't come to that...
I hope it is. I like MMO basic stuff but then some stuff gets to in-depth for me to bother with.
