Destiny isn't a 10/10, yet you're still playing it

After my time with the beta I decided not to purchase but instead rent it from gamefly. If after 2 weeks If still can't get into it, I'll send it back. Two of my favorite FPS are borderlands and Halo so there is no reason why I shouldn't be all over this but it's just missing something and I can't quite figure out what it is. Pacing maybe? I want to love this game but it's just so sloooow.

review scores do not influence my purchasing of a game. Personal experience does.

joydestroy1559d ago

i feel the same. my personal experience with the beta was awesome so i can't wait to go home and crack out on this game. i'm gonna grind like crazy.

joab7771559d ago

Exatly...and it is a 10. Trust me, ppl are crucify in this game b4 they even hit the endgame content, which will make up 99% of everything over the yrs.

kratoz12091559d ago

Same I am enjoying it, its fun to play wiyh friends
However I am not addicted to the multiplayer unlike the last of us

What you are saying is very troubling to me. It's one of the big reasons I don't generally like MMO's. I don't know why I would slog through hours and hours of crap just to get to the fun stuff. There are plenty of games out there that are fun all the way through.

I'm having a blast with this game.

Yes, it can get slightly repetitive at times, and the story is slow and thin, but I can tell I'll be playing for awhile. The combat; ai; and soundtrack are sweet.

They need to slap a 2X on those "Random Events" though. Too few/far between.

Edit: After so much TLOUR-MP the MP is waaay too fast for me. I mean damn it makes me feel like an old man or something. Not to say I suck, but it's actually not as fun as the scripted coop raids/events.

Well aren't you all strong and independent.

Lack of games do also. Look at how much watch dogs sold. People will play a boring or rush to buy an average game when they're a lack of games. Not saying there's anything wrong with average or subpar games, just that people overhype these games then they don't live up people make up excuses because of the devs.

glad to see your not one of those guys who will give up after the first day on a game. Honestly i wouldn't be much of a gamer if I gave up on things I didnt immediately like.

I'm really hoping that Bungies really going to kick it into gear with free additions and what not.

On another note I had an enjoyable conversation with some xbox one players as we talked about how we enjoyed the beta and what not. The game must be played with friends to get the full experience, Exploring the deepest areas of the moon with 6 people (2 in my fireteam one in the other in another server all in the same party) as we admired the expansive underground areas is what got me hooked.

I doubt there will be anything free for this game. It's Activision. They are going to charge for everything they can.
Well maybe I would love to be wrong.
I like the game but I'm holding out to see how the dlc/expansions are handled.

I'm having so much fun that any review would be wasted reading, for me.

Mega241559d ago

That's the spirit!

If it was for reviews, I would have never played Witcher 2, remember people saying that the game had horrible combat and storytelling, but I found it to be one of the greatest experiences on my 360, along side Oblivion and Skyrim.

XabiDaChosenOne1559d ago

I couldn't get into Boderlands, Halo is whatever for me. This game is crack.

bigrook1559d ago

Game is good, not great. It gets very repetitive....boss fights are nothing memorable either. The whole thing feels like a casual shooter with auto leveling, and no story. Its fun with friends, but alone it feels really empty. Game could have been a lot better.

Eh I really liked the beta so I got it and so far it's pretty good. It isn't the end all be all but neither was Halo really.

Artista 1559d ago

no game is..
I think we tend to ruin games for ourselves with hype.

Most are probably more tuned into the build up of AAA game towards release than actually playing it.

I love the fact that, there are no reviews out for Destiny at the moment.

user3672721559d ago

Just picked up mine at the MS store. Can't wait to play it later on tonight and I'll be the judge of what the game should scores.

pixelsword1559d ago

Maybe it isn't a 10/10 to you, but it's a 10/10 to the people who bought it and think it so; after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I was extremely hyped but its not 10/10 so far for me, its sitting around an 8-9 range. I'm interested in seeing what they do next with all this daily content stuff. Maybe new story missions added or planned in the fashion of Halo 4's spartan ops but possibly done in a much better way. They have said their willing to do things that players ask for and is possible so if that's all true and they do implement it in a timely manner than it can definitely make a comeback if need be.

Destiny is very decent but no where near as good as the hype and pre-orders it has garnered. The marketing division for Destiny did their job too well.

700p1559d ago

Destiny is already boring!

SoapShoes1559d ago

^ You would be correct. No one believes this guy and the Halo fanboys are agreeing with him and everyone who likes it. Too bad for them this game is too big to sway in their favor.

Redgehammer1559d ago

Is that what living with ADD is like? I hope you find something that thrills you.

bigrook1559d ago

after a few weeks, Destiny will be abandoned...everyone will be done with it. Level 20 cap ? 2 days of grinding then what ? Every character looks pretty much the same....I cannot find my team mates once they are 10 feet away because everyone looks like 1 of 3 chars !! LOL !!
