I was only five minutes into Destiny when I remembered why I stopped playing First Person Shooters. I was walking down a dark corridor, not entirely sure where I was meant to be going, when all of a sudden I noticed something scurry across my path in the distance. Mere moments later, they were shooting at me. They were actually trying to kill me. So I hid and hoped they’d go away. It was then that I finally accepted that I am a video game coward.
At this point it might be useful to explain why I, of all people, am writing about the Destiny Beta, though the explanation is a simple one: because I can. Having a friend who works at Activision can have its advantages, one of them being the odd entry code for a Beta, and in return I agreed to give him some form of feedback. Being a gamer of 30 years standing who doesn’t play FPS games means I may well have a different perspective to those that pre-ordered. And anyway, who can really turn down the chance to get their hands on one of the most highly anticipated games of the year?
