Gameranx's Jacob Saylor writes a defense of Destiny, in the face of so much criticism of the game's quality.
Read the first line of this article and decided I did not like it could be just poor judgement on my behalf though.
"I sniff the in-box game manual as a tradition before rapidly inserting the game disc into my Playstation 4." well no wonder, the lack of oxygen to his head obviously affected his perception of the game. And that's not a snap judgement either, I spent a good 45 seconds deciding that! :P
I like the smell of the new manual too!
I had played this game for almost a week and must had put in 15 hours total and if I am still bored and fusturated with it, then am I still quick to judge? I won't be playing anymore though as I traded in my copy yesterday. Not surprisingly, there were a few other copies on the used rack as well at my local Gamestop.
Lol! 15 hours in a week? I've put in over 80! This game provides me with new content every day! Stop hating!
8o in a week!? Here, here is a prize for you for being marathon man. 🏆...man, wish I have that much time to play games. Normal humans like myself have other needs too.
Like hating on a great game on N4G, time well spent, NOT. You are aloud to have your opinion and so is everyone else. I quaranty that I have been playing games for many years longer than most people on N4G and no way this game deserves the amount of hate it is getting. If the game was boring to me I would known in the first few hours, it wouldn't take fifteen hours to figure it out. Everyone saying they played 15, 20, 30 hours of the game and saying it is boring, you couldn't get me to play a game that long if it was boring.
I've shared my disappointment for this game in a few threads. But honestly last night I had a blast playing multiplayer. Peace out single player (which is disappointing...I agree with the majority).
Personally, its the most fun I've had in any multi-player game in a long time. Rolling into the Crucible with six of yours buddies working together is an amazing feeling. Can't wait to tackle the crushingly difficult raids. Glad to see a game that doesn't hold your hand and lets you discover the world with the community.
In a way it very much reminds me of the first few Final Fantasy games. You wanted money and XP you roamed around the same areas where both were the most abundant and destroyed hour after hour. People nowadays call it repetitive, and I guess in a way it is, but there is reward in the end. In the case of Destiny, you get legendary weapons and armor as the pay off as well as parts for upgrading equipment. Tons of fun. See you on the inside, Guardians!
