I Played 45 Minutes Of Destiny, And It Was Kind Of Boring

Patricia Hernandez writes: "Earlier this month, I got a chance to fly up to Washington and try Bungie's upcoming sci-fi shooter, Destiny. Walking through the Bellevue office for the first time, I'm struck by all the accolades lining the walls near the reception area. Here, a giant, life-sized statue of Master Chief stands tall, casting a shadow."

*I Played 45 Minutes Of Destiny, And It Was Kind Of Boring*

That's like saying You only watched the intro and few minutes to a movie and called it boring right away *Rolls eyes*

@Below 45 minutes does not do a game justice that most likely will be showered in content for 7+ hours.

Ironically, it's a lot like writing off an entire article after only reading the headline.

DanielGearSolid3684d ago

That was a pretty good comeback

dc13684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

..and the article should not have been titled the way it was. It creates an unnecessary negative connotation around Destiny. It's on far to everyone involved with the game.

@ dc1

Honestly, I think I agree with you on that. Reading the article, I get the impression that the title, although mostly true of the author's experience, was mostly intended to be provocative. I'm never a big fan of that sort of thing.

A title like that, for a game like this, is the kind of statement that absolutely demands an explanation. But with that said, I think the depth of the author's exposition really does a fairly good job at providing that explanation. She seems very intrigued by the game and the experience being offered, but uncertain of how this will all turn out - unsure of whether Bungie will be able to *actively* captivate audiences in the same way they have in previous work.

The last few paragraphs, I think, really explain the sentiment behind the her choice of words in the title... even if we agree that they weren't the best.

Revolver_X_3684d ago

The title is just tryna make waves. You'll have to excuse me if my interest in reading the article is non-existent, after a flamebait headline such as that. Good luck with the click-baiting.

Baka-akaB3684d ago

You flamebait with titles , i dont feel compelled to read your article , it's that simple

Palitera3684d ago


It is Kotagarbage. What did you expect?

Actually, only from the headline, you can already tell it comes from that crappy site or something like GameR_nx and Examin_r.

randomass1713684d ago

Wait, how can they base their opinion off of a 45 minute demo which didn't include the cooperative multiplayer? You know, the core of the game experience? And besides, this is from Kotaku. You don't really need to read past the headline to understand how sensationalized it is.

Gazondaily3684d ago

Lol you told him.

"Another interesting, and in my mind positive, aspect about Destiny: Bungie doesn't want it to be the sort of game that needs to take over your life, which definitely sets it apart from most MMOs."

This is weird because when they showed off Destiny last year, they were saying how they wanted the game to actually take over your life and always make you want to play it, be it through some smartphone apps and whatnot.

Anyway, the footage I saw really excited me. I'll judge for myself.

AliTheSnake13684d ago

@Majin-vegeta That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. You need to tell me I need to play 7 hours to start having fun? Any game that makes me play a full hour to start having fun is no good game. Borderlands, Fallout3, skyrim, are all fun from the first minute.

FriedGoat3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )

Sounds like someone with little FPS experience.
"I wish I was playing the ever-exciting Titanfall"
Really? Why name an average FPS and not a good one?

And why mention titanfall 5 times in the article?

Gazondaily3684d ago



Oh come on man!

"Really? Why name an average game and not a good one? "

Really? Why post such a useless flamebait opinion? Yes...you think Titanfall is not a good game. Well done.


FriedGoat3684d ago

Hardly flamebait, I just thought it strange that there was so much talk of titanfall in the article when they are different genres.

It's like playing GTA 5 and saying "I wish I was playing the ever-exciting saboteur".


No need to get so angry.

dc13684d ago

That's a very fair response Naga.
Oh... and forgive the typos in my initial response :)

darkmonkey13x3684d ago


"And why mention titanfall 5 times in the article?"

She mention Borderlands 6 times so???... u dont complain, why's that?

FriedGoat3684d ago (Edited 3684d ago )


Have you played borderlands? Have you played titanfall?

One of these games (i'm not going to name which one) has similar gameplay and is actually comparable to destiny albeit on a smaller scale.

So let me recap, your asking me why a relevant game is being mentioned more times? What you should be asking, is why is a completely irrelevant game being mentioned 5 times.

Do you play games at all?

Ra30303684d ago

"Ironically, it's a lot like writing off an entire article after only reading the headline".
Which is what I did.

So the author is saying the same thing most everyone said about Titanfall made by Call of Duty fallouts. Titanfal was CoD with mechs and those that said that where right but so what Titanfall is a good shooter. I'm sure Destiny looks like Halo but bigger, much much bigger and way better looking than Halo IMO. Again, so what if it looks like Halo don't all shooters look and feel about the same? I didn't read the whole article I couldn't help thinking after reading the title " I played Destiny for 45 min and I was kinda boerd ". Hmm I couldn't help think that this person was an American that has to have everything come to them, right in front of them so its nice and easy or their "kinda bored" if they actually have to do something well thats asking to much..This article here is why developers and publishers pay to have article written about their games. IMO reviews, reports or anything written about a game in a published article should never be posted with that persons opinion. This person may not be a FPS fan or RPG fan or maybe not even Gaming fan. All games should release a demo or we should be able to rent the before we lay out $60 plus or more.

Gotcha53684d ago

Come on guys... you do know some games do suck when it come to curtain demo's. That why some developers fail to release a demo of their games.

UnbiasedOpinions3684d ago

IMO it looked boring compared to Halo, it lost the innocence and simplicity of Halo by trying to be something more than just a shooter, don't get me wrong i am excited for it, but it just seems boring to me for some reason

darkmonkey13x3684d ago


yes i do play games, own borderlands 1 & 2 (tbh i havent finished the 2nd :s) and i own titanfall also

irrelevant? i dont think so, she is talking about new IPs of well-know developers, the movement (parkour) and "ever-exciting" of TF, so it is relevant to know that Destiny lack of these elements and why she felt the game was boring or doesnt know how this game "will fit in a landscape that's full of shooters."

DragonKnight3684d ago

When it comes to Kraptaku, writing off the article after reading the headline is actually doing yourself a favour.

Mankey3684d ago

Dang, he tried to son them, but you soned him back!
