Given so many delays of anticipated games and the fact that two massive shooters are positioned to dominate the holiday season, it seems inevitable.
Not anymore. People are getting tired of yearly COD games, and Destiny turned out to be a major disappointment both according to critics and players.
Not to me and many people I know screw the critics.
@FasterThanFTL only according the the usual bandwagon vocal minority haters most players and even most of the media are positive about Destiny, these are facts not the shotgun vitriol.
I've been having a blast with Destiny, so has everyone I know. Mission diversity certainly could have been better, but I'm sure it will evolve over time.
I disagree. I personally feel Destiny is a better game then what most people say it is. Really not bad for a new ip. Not all great either, definitely room for improvement and that's a good thing.
the thing is with destiny its not finished as in its got a timeline. many games are pretty much the entire release apart from a little DLC maybe. destiny 1 is planned to last until destiny 2 in 2016. only haters of destiny are on net lol,im lreally enjhoying it myself (lvl 23 hunter),i just dont have enough friends to play raids.
most people say its fun actually, don't let the vocal minority fool you.
I haven't heard many "disappointed" players regarding Destiny. Most people I hear from (yes, totally anecdotal), really enjoy it and know it will improve over time (given the type of game it is).
I'll be playing Destiny and Advanced Warfare the remainder of the year and then get many new games next year.
The problem with Destiny was my misinterpretion of the game itself. I honestly thought Destiny was similar in scope to Fallout, and not similar to Halo/COD. I'm really not interested in games that focus only on FPS.
Yes. I'm having a blast with Destiny, and I will be picking up Call Of Duty because it looks like a good game. Most people don't find Destiny disappointing, and most people aren't fed up of Call Of Duty (look at sales figures).
Actually I think it's the other way around. I think all of these games "NEW EXPERIENCES" are coming out that will overshadow Destiny and COD. I personally didn't enjoy Destiny Alpha/Beta so I didn't pick it up. I also haven't purchased COD since Mw2, I know plenty of other people who see the catalog for the fall/winter and say oh im getting this and this and this and I don't hear COD/Destiny in the mix.
There are not too many other games, most got delayed into 2015.
Imo, i say AC U will get GOTY 2014, if not, it goes to... Dark Souls II
Yeah, I second that... Unity is one of the only games releasing this year that's actually current-gen... Destiny, CoD, Dragon Age, Alien and Titanfall all have to make concessions to their last-gen cousins (Low-res/fps, whatever, they're the SAME GAMES). Not saying they aren't/won't be great, just that their availability limits their potential... Unity isn't releasing on every frikkin' platform (unlike Watch_Dogs), and they've had years to work on it (pretty sure it was the 'Brotherhood' team that got things started). Mario-kart, Sunset Overdrive and Assassin's Creed (not to mention the Division, Batman, the Witcher, ect...) are all current-gen exclusives, and I would imagine that at least two of them will be candidates for Game of the Year.
Advanced Warfare looks good. I don't know what the GOTY will be this year though. Could be dragon age, could be far cry, it could be a lot of things.
Honestly after the Destiny beta I was disappointed and didn't get the game and after the reviews I think a made the right choice. I'm also picky about FPS games I have to have 60fps especially in the competitive front. So I'm going to get Advanced Warfare instead. The story looks great and the graphics are actually good and new features make it interesting. Hopefully it will be great and fun to play.
These will overshadow a lot of SHOOTER games for a long ass time because i think destiny was good as hell and advanced warfare looks like the first cod in a while that isn't just a cookie cutter bro shooter. But shadow of mordor, dragon age inquisition, Gta V, assassins creed unity (despite not looking great), and dying light are all gonna come in and take ps4 users attention. So don't worry guys. Plenty to look forward too. Not everyone cares about JUST the shooter genre article writer.
i think we in for a treat over the next 6 months. so many good games coming out. i have always had games to play since i skipped a few end of last gen and have never been short of a game on my ps4. but all the haters cant deny that this hliday there is great lineup and into next year it jsut gets better.
I'm pretty excited. I personally haven't had much to play on my ps4 until these last few months with diablo destiny minecraft etc. Now i'm pretty satisfied and ready to wait for the holidays and 2015
I'll be playing GTA till February, Bloodborne, The order 1886, The Witcher 3. How do I have time for all 3 games is February? :( good probs I guess..
Don't forget Dying Light, and Evolve with their 4V1 gameplay. Damn late January to February is going to be packed!
February is going to be costly.
cod is dead destiny is halo for sony,gta ftw baby
"cod is dead" Steady, now. we all know its gonna sell by the truckload. Its CoD. We say its dead every year then it goes off and sells 15 million copies. And this years Cod actually look good. I would go proclaiming it DOA, just yet... "destiny is halo for sony" Except its also on X1 and X360..and soon PC..but otherwise..yeah..lol "gta ftw baby" I can dig that!
come on if xbox one was like 360 with the third parties you would agree that destiny would be halo 2.0 or give a number of your choise as for cod please gimmick after gimmick if they wont knock off bf(levolution) then will be crysis (exo-suit)next years cod will borrow ideas from far cry...and i know i sound as a hater but until mw3 it was my fav franchise dont get me start about halo which after 2 ment downhill but in fps bussines is hype and activision destroy good games. Its my view though feel free to critic it
"come on if xbox one was like 360 with the third parties you would agree that destiny would be halo 2.0" Hard to say. Im sure COD4 on x360 outsold halo on x360 back in 2007. "give a number of your choise as for cod please gimmick after gimmick if they wont knock off bf(levolution) then will be crysis (exo-suit)next years cod will borrow ideas from far cry...and i know i sound as a hater but until mw3 it was my fav franchise dont get me start about halo which after 2 ment downhill but in fps bussines is hype and activision destroy good games." Hey, I aint saying your wrong about that, with regards to CoD...but the casuals...boooy..it might be enough to get them to buy it in droves again this year. eveytime they give it a new lick of paint..well you een what happens. the mainstream love it..but gamers be like "ah..we seen it all before.".. its always the way with CoD. "Its my view though feel free to critic it" Its a well thought out point of view, mate..and no you are not a hater! Guess we just have to hope people are ready to move on from CoD. But I must admit I have not been interested in CoD since MW2. This one looks interesting ( compared to the CODs of the last few years, not other FPS that are coming out)
All you have to is read articles from early 2013 about Destiny to find the final game is nothing like we were lead to beleive. Here is one quote from IGN: "He could've walked all along the wall to Old Russia if he wanted, or down through that valley and out to those mountains miles away. The breadth of gameplay space is staggering, and it's a fraction of a percent of the cities, stars, and faraway planets you'll be able to visit in Destiny." That sounds epic, what we got was far less content and far more linear.
Damn your actually right. It was a really big let down. sold it after only 2 days. and I use to keep all games. Destiny is BORING! How could they be able to lie this much and not get sued? its fake advertising? ??
I really don't think these games will be overshadowing anything. Destiny came out early enough in the fall, that sales will begin to taper off, and many gamers will be looking for other things to pay. And COD simply isn't the juggernaught it once was. With FH2 being hyped to the moon, along with Drive Club, Sunset Overdrive, Assassins Creed Unity, Halo MCC, GTAV etc, people will simply be spending a lot of money. The games I worry will be overshadowed are LBP 3, Mordor, dragon age, assassins creed rogue, the crew, etc. they look to be good games, but don't have the marketing other games are getting.
Its all the comments of "improove over time" that get me,so your all happy to play/pay for an unfinished product. This is the problem with games today,they charge £60 for a shell then even more for content to populate that shell,and for some reason the majority are ok with this. Look at x1 &ps4 they should have been launched world wide next month,they where both so not ready to come out last year,all the games are no different from the last gen versions except for price that is. Then again loads of people buy season passes to???
