Must Destiny Change Drastically To Be Successful?

Is Destiny in need of post-release modifications to get it back on track and make it the game that everyone was hoping it would be?

Didn't it sell 5 million copies in 24 hours? The game is already the most successful new IP ever. This is one of those games that didn't need early reviews as it will grow and improve with the community. As much as Bungie denied it being a MMO, a MMO is what it is. Can't imagine what kind of sad person with no opinion of their own would trade the game in based on bad critic reviews.

If you're enjoying the game, that's what matters.

It's not even "bad critic reviews".

Only a handful of sources have given it a sub-70 score. The rest of them are 70 upwards with plenty of 80s and a few 90s. The game has quality, but certain people here are convinced it's a dud or a bad game because of the controversy of a 6/10. Not saying it's absolutely a great game as people are allowed to think it's average, but it's not a bad game in the slightest. It's a solid game.

Destiny is every success it needs to be and Bungie obviously have all the information they need from the community to improve the game over the next few months to years.

If ot changes dramatically, I'm out. I frigging love it. As with any mmo I love, all I want is more of what they've already given us. More strikes, more loot and more customization...but not yet....cuz i wanna get to 30, raid and level another character and do some PvP. Then, more content.

If they want, add 30 minutes of cutscenes, but when I level my hunter, off an option to skip them, b/c I will.

And they also said its passed 500 million dollars in sales. Thats success.

Saelyn1226d ago

I don't think it needs to change drastically but rather expand upon what has already been set in place. The story fleshed out, the enemies varied along with the locales. I think that is the main thing with perhaps a few more maps ( maybe a game mode or two? ) for crucible.

Thatguy-3101225d ago

yea and offer an open world mmo like they had set it out to be when they announced it.

This and let me fly my damn ship manually with or against friends. Those ships are too sweet to be used for only a loading sequence.

joab7771225d ago

Seriously, I wouldn't doubt if future patches have space combat. There may also be speeder races.

It's an mmo, the possibilities r endless for us, if we don't quit at level 12.

Saelyn1225d ago

I would not mind that at all. Also I would love to race some friends on the speeders. Being on that reminded me of Pod Racing for some reason.

joab7771225d ago

It will. It's an mmo and they have said themselves that they are pacing content and not throwing everything at us at once.

Saelyn1225d ago

Yeah I know most MMOs don't throw the whole kitchen sink in at once, but doesn't seem like there is a whole lot from the beginning. It seems to be shaping up nicely though.

I think the game is great, and I am sure since Bungie have a 10 year plan for destiny that there will be plenty of updates to the game to keep it going, some of them inspired by the community.

As far as enjoyment it is one of the best games of the year.

I can see it now... An Universe Reborn: Destiny
