Destiny was one of this years most anticipated releases, but does it live up to the hype?
it was unfortunately both, but wasn't their fault. Just blame n4g users for hyping this up more than a GTA release
"Victim" of it's own hype. I'm sure Activision doesn't even know the meaning of the term victim behind that big ass wall of cash the game made. It was fun but really repetitive in my eyes.
Blame Activision's business partner in the media, IGN for the over-the-top-hype.. (see Activision purchase of IGN ProLeague. Conflict of interest much??)
I feel like some people thought this game would end world hunger and cure disease. I don't get how people let themselves get so hyped for a game. I know being excited is normal, but don't overhype things to unattainable ends and you'll end up happy. I knew exactly what I was getting with the beta and was very happy. If you didn't like the beta, then this game isn't for you.
I've been saying this for days. I like you bought the game based on the beta, I was skeptical before the beta but it was so much fun. The pre-orders doubled after the beta, these were pretty much informed decisions. I don't get it at all.
I've got to level 7 on this and gave up interest..... The real games come out next year
are games coming out this year not real games?
Meh to both points . I was never shown an actual gameplay sequence with endless open world experience with mass effect level storyline and plotting . So why on earth would i believe that , when i can't even put my trust in any reviewer out there ? So i was just excited about what was actually shown and playable , and for the most part i was satisfied . Do i have issues with some design choices and parts of the game ? Was i still dissapointed by the far less than expected cinematic experience and nature of the "prologue campaign" ? Yeah , but i'm still very happy with it and looking forward to the future content and improvements
Shame this can't be the real gospel of these discussions/situations/scenari os. Instead, reviewers (and gamers) would rather focus on the folks that hyped it up, rather than the sum of the game's ACTUAL parts. I don't ever remember Destiny being hyped to unrealistic levels, especially not after the sobering beta (which I and many others enjoyed). I just don't get this "victim" talk, but that's how today's environment in the gaming world works.
Not a disappointment to me. I'm loving it. About 60 hours in.
and thats all that matters right? im loving it, my gf loves tagging along on strikes with her white ps4 :) my friend bought and loves it. but people who wont even give it a chance are trying to make others feel bad for purchasing it. but to each their own. off to the crucible with me. level 27 (almost 28) hunter...need a primary legendary weapon and ill be set :)
Love the game but was hyped up just to much by everyone. Though that did benefit Sony, Activision and Bungie is sales.
I really dont care about review scores, i validate my purchases by how much fun and time i put into a game. Initially i was like "meh over hyped" but as i continued to play it ive been addicted and sinking many hours into it, hence it not being a disappointment to me. Nothing groundbreaking but mp is fun and sp is decent with it being better with co-op play.
Sony Fanboys tried to hold this game over the heads of Xbox fans, and in the end, the game ended up being mediocre.
@DJustin: How? It's a multiplat game.
Don't waste your time. He hasn't a clue, bubble, nor shred of evidence to continue this discussion with any real merit.
Even sony where talking like it was exclusive,theres a post on n4g somewhere talking about it.
im just really tired of getting shafted by the loot system over and over again... i feel like the game just doesnt reward me for my over 120 hours played now... ive kept going because its a solid game, but the complete lack of depth and reward is really weighing me down and making it a very joyless experience now :/ only 2 weeks in and the fun level is nonexistent... not a good sign with lots of games coming out in october, im thinking this will go by the titanfall wayside :/ ohhh well it was somewhat fun while it lasted and i did put over 120 hours in which is more then most will put in the whole time they play so i technically feel i got my monies worth but it has left me with a sour taste in my mouth :/
I'm getting tired of Activision releasing the first half of the game on disc and the second half DLC. I bet the game is bland because they intend to add as you go, or pay. Sure games are $60 in today's world, but what's in the game from the start is a different story. Last time when we changed generations to the PS3/X360, people bitched about the $10 increase. In order to avoid bitch-fest part 2, they figure out ways to milk us for our money
Writer forgot to add awesome game as an option.
The games a dissapointment. Bungie hyped this game up and twusted the facts on this game even going so far as to show cutscenes that dont even exist in the final release. Alot of ppl are blaming the fans for overhyping Destiny but if you really think that go take a look at the viddocs the bungie team released before the game came out. So much was said that doesnt hold a candle to what were really playing.
This gae is not a disappointment. One of the best games I have ever played and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. Looking forward to see how they develop the story throughout the 10 year plan. Some people need to realize the story isn't over and stop bashing on the campaign
Both, but I blame Activision. I get the feeling things are like this because it was purposely done to sell dlc and make you buy item/weapons etc with real money.
