Destiny is a grind, but that ain’t a bad thing

There comes a certain time in Destiny, when the game slows down. When the same areas feel far too familiar, and the effort of taking part in events just doesn’t feel worthwhile. It’s hard enough getting your Guardian from level one all the way through to level 20. But in reality this is when the game starts becoming great

Lol, level 32. Freakin' Kinderguardian.

I'm only on level 30... and I'm bored of the grind.

BUT I have to admit when you get a team of 3 going and hit the strikes it is one of the better gaming experiences out there

Yourself, and the author of this article will eventually reach the same conclusion. You are already getting a taste of how repetitive it is. Eventually, you will realize that Destiny is nothing more than a gambling addiction. Everything you do in Destiny is a number roll. I sank right at 1400hrs into Destiny before I got wise to Bungies intentions.

That's like me saying I roll dice in my room all day, hoping I get snake eyes (double 1s) and calling it gambling. You pay money for the game, you play it for fun, no gambling involved otherwise it wouldn't be legal for those under 18 to buy it.

Now, doing that would be boring as h***, and destiny is indeed repetitive but there's nothing stopping you from putting down the controller and Bungie has no "intentions" of making you fall into a deep pit of addiction, its all you man.

Now get that tinfoil hat off your head ;) and stop BSing about 1400 hours, yeah f****** right lol

Sorry bud, but you are wrong on this one. Ever wonder how a person can sit in front of a slot machine for hours pulling that same lever over, and over, and over again without getting bored?They are waiting for that jackpot. Destiny, and slots have something in common. They both use a random number generator(rng), to give out rewards. Ever wonder why someone can play the same content over, and over, and over again for months in Destiny? Were you excited when the rng finally dropped you a Gjallarhorn, or some exotic/legendary that you wanted. You just hit the jackpot. Im sure that Bungie knew exactly what they were doing when they made this design decision.

If you cant see this, then you are in the denial stage of addiction.

* I've enjoyed Destiny more as a game I go back to every 3-4 months.

I'll play the heck out of it for 1-2 weeks and then I'm good for like 3-5 months.

There is nothing wrong with that either.

It happened a lot with NES/Sega Genesis/SNES/N64/PS1..ect..

GRINDFEST! Urgh... why do I fall for these games???

Xbonewone320151208d ago

Intermittent reward system.

Once you research what it is, you'll feel like an idiot for getting addicted to it.

You are currently a puppet, and the puppet master is pulling your strings.

haha. he's blaming the IRS! hehe

i laugh at people playing Destiny still

SolidGear31208d ago

What about people who haven't started yet like me? Waiting on Legendary edition. The game plus all content up to Taken King for cheap.

theFAYEsorceress1208d ago

why? not everyone has the same opinion as you.

objdadon1208d ago

You laugh at people who have fun playing a video game???

darren_poolies1208d ago

You laugh at people that enjoy a game? Erm okay.

Peace_Love_and_FPS1207d ago

Whoa you got your bubbles back!!! Never saw that coming D:

Why do you just gotta be so negative towards everything? I remember specifically there was an article about a destiny player who got to play it for a week at launch before dying, and you making an insensitive, offensive comment.

ON TOPIC: I don't see any point in playing anymore myself, got 3 34s (no, it didn't take long and I didn't play a lot), but I'm not going to be a d*** and laugh at people still playing something they enjoy, that's just uncalled for and I'm pretty sure they would laugh at you laughing at them :P so what if they like destiny still?

Just please go spread that negativity somewhere else

Destiny wasn't for me.

Has something to do with respecting quality gaming or some such reason.


That's not a bad thing though, right?

If you think Destiny is a grind, look at what ESO offers. Especially the Champion Points.
