THIS IS A GOOD GAME, YET IT'S ALL THE SAME ALRIGHT, BUT CODS/ BF3 & BF4 ARE ALL THE SAME, STILL THEY DID VERY WELL.

Most of these complaints are from the peeps who play the craptakular BF 4 and COD franchises.

Booyah!!

End of line.

Honestly, I'm tired of everyone expecting games to do something new -every time- to be considered great. Bungie is a master at the FPS genre, and they've refined it into an art form. Destiny has some unique elements that haven't been seen by most console gamers (The MMO-esque aspects and such)and meshes it together with solid FPS gameplay and what's shaping up to be an interesting story. In the end, if the shooting mechanics and such are as refined as Halo, then this game will be amazing.

I like it. That's pretty much all I have to worry about. I spent 20 hours on the Beta, which is nothing compared to some people. But still, that was a beta with 1 stage, except for the short 2 hour moon mission, which was fun. I say 1 stage because I only played PVP in the Iron Banner event long enough to get my Legendary level banner thing for my Titan. 99% of my time was spent in the exploration mode. That's not counting my almost 20 hours in the Alpha as well..So if I do my math correctly that adds up to a crap load more hours considering that was 1 stage with a level 8 cap. Plus the Raids. I joined a clan just for those things. I wish they would have match making but whatever, just have to conform. lol

Borderlands + COD/Halo archetype MP = Destiny.

Anything else?

Oh, sure, the most important part: dozens of millions on marketing.

Absolutely more of the same. The fact that there is a disposable hub city does no make it a MMO or anything near it. Actually, the game would be better if there wasn't two loading times and lots of running between the player and the vendors that act exactly like a menu would.

Probably will buy, but only because we are in the year of the delay.
