Destiny: Have Halo Developers Bungie Reinvented the MMO?

I don't like MMOs. You know these games: World of Warcraft; Diablo; Lord of the Rings Online. I don't like them because they're boring - they're safe.

The combat is all based around maths and stat points. Rather than feeling like you're in a genuine fight, you slowly grind down an enemy's health meter while spamming hotkeys to top up your own. The missions or quests are similarly dry. Typically they involve collecting X amount of MacGuffins, or venturing into some cave to kill a few enemies and collect a bunch of treasure. Worst of all, the majority of MMOs all run with the same aesthetic; the same sub-Tolkien, elves, dwarves, and magic narrative setup.

Destiny is not an MMO, would you call Borderlands an MMO?

MMO "A massively multiplayer online game is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously"

6 vs 6 is hardly a large number of players

It supports large numbers of players online at once in the open zones of the game and in the tower.

It even has random PvE events geared towards this.

It has -

interactive gestures
Instanced story zones

It is an MMO, sorry but if fits typical MMOs down to a T, it just lacks the content of an MMO and its narrative is not good so it is not a compelling game and when the main content can be cleared in 10 hours that is weak.
