Bungie on Destiny Redefining a Genre: The Idea Would be Arrogant
At least they're being realistic.
Exactly! There is no point for them to say things like that. Let the game speak for itself. Look at what happened with Watch Dogs. Ubisoft said that it was going to redefine the open world genre and it fell right on its face.
"Look at what happened with Watch Dogs" True, but a better example when compared to Destiny is another FPS that was supposed to rock the world a few months ago. I forget the name...
Destiny looks so boring
I'm pretty sure they were alluding to Titanfall.
Let's be real we all know what game everyone is thinking about with this statement. The one that was hyped to hell and back yet fell on it's face, T...Fall and no it's not Towerfall. If anyone says destiny is trash they're either a hater or a part of the minority most of the people that played it agree that the game is awesome. Majority rules.
hmm... Saying Watch Dogs fell flat on its face is just plain ridiculous...
No one should expect a genre to be redefined at this point.
Bungie should just craft a fps game worthy of the next decade. Not asking for much, or anything
Desinty looks like more of the same. When they first showed it at E3 '13 it looked interesting but now that i see what the whole game concept is it looks like garbage. All Desitiny is is a mixture of Halo and Borderlands...which is a bad thing
Someone didn't get into the Alpha. And how is it a bad thing?
It's his opinion. Not everyone enjoyed Halo and Borderlands.
I was worried that Destiny would be all hype, but man they have really met expectations and blown some out of the water. So, yes, they didn't redefine anything, but they sure are moving it forward.
Just make what I love really great and worth my time as a hobby which so many in my life foolishly look down upon as time wasted but I see as an experience.
I didn't see anything in the Alpha that redefined any genre, but it was a solid, competently done shooter, with some interesting and deep lore/world-building, and varied RPG elements. I came away wanting to play again, and had a blast just grouping with a friend and running in loops making head shots. That's all I'm looking for from Destiny, some place to have a blast, and I'm in there day one.
My thoughts exatclty!! I havent want to go back a play a game with this urge since socom 2!!!
Most well said description of Destiny I've read so far.
