Destiny is surprising not only in how successful it already is, but also in which games it is reminiscent of, and just how fun it is to play.
"Addictive Gameplay" Only level 7 and I'm still playing more Crusader Kings 2 than Destiny, which is arguably be more repetitive than Destiny.
Crusader Kings 2 is a very difficult strategy game which requires hours of dedication to get hold of the ropes. But after a while, CK2 actually becomes incredibly amazing and dynamic. As for Destiny, it's a twitch game on consoles.
Quit hating on the game just because it's the "cool" thing to do with kids ever since the game came out. If you don't like games such as Diablo 3, where the fun part is about hunting for loot, leveling up, comparing your legendary gears to others, enjoying a solid PVP (Control, team death match, etc.) then why bother getting the game, only to go on a hating crusade and attempting to downplay the games hype? Seriously, there was a beta that was available on all consoles, everyone had a chance to play the game and knew how the game would be, but now many are just jumping on the hate bandwagon for the game. So which one is it? Did you buy the game (after having a chance to play the beta) and are now hating because the game is not what you thought it was going to be? Or are you hating just because its "cool" to hate on the game? Fyi, Both are extremely stupid by the way.
Cryptcuzz That's what she said. :3
They hate it because they can't get weapons like the standard COD/BF4 get kills and unlock weapons gameplay. Destiny makes you work for your rewards. For people like me who play rpgs, I have no problem grinding and farming for loot. They hate it because someone like me, who isn't an expert at shooters, can have uber gear and b*tch slap them around a map. The whiners just need to admit they don't like the MMO elements of this game and move on. RUN & GUN is going the way of the dinosaur. Now get the hell out of the way and let the future begin with Destiny.
"Addictive gameplay" just another empty buzzword these sites love so much.
im level 21 at the moment, and addictive gameplay isn't even the word for how stuck I am on Destiny
What is so great about destiny (in your opinion, please)?
Right there with you man. Great game. Oh and to the debbies....no one needs to justify thier purchase to you.
And this is exactly why early reviews for games like this can't be trusted. You're a level 7 and saying the game is boring.... Wow. Just wow. So much stupid on the internets now. It's killing my brain.
Crusader King sucks, it's boring and terribly designed have fun with that trash then
I can't seem to think of anything negative about the game - unless I read online (I agree with the complaints, when I do, though) I'm just gonna not give attention to the negativity, and enjoy the game to the fullest I can!
good for you. sometimes you just want to enjoy that game you spent $60-$150 on even though you know it is not without its faults it feels good to enjoy it for what it is and to praise the good. destiny is certainly not what its hyped up to be but is that a bad thing? not at all..there's ton of room for growth within the series and hopefully bungie can start by hearing the things that fans want such as prox. chat. people must remember that "destiny" is just the start. this is a franchise that supposedly has a ten year life span. mistakes are a given for every new ip no matter who the developer.
the game is plucking AMAZING! ..super fun, but, ya know..it's popular so gotta release the haters out of their hate cave.. -_-
I've felt with having to cope with overhyped/underwhelming game before. Watch_Dogs - obviously. There is two things I feel are important for people to realize. 1. We'd all be better off if we could invest as much energy as we do overlooking the flaws of underrated titles into enjoying the quality of overhyped titles. 2. We gamers are like rabid dogs! We shred through every morsel of content in no time. I think Bungie has caught on to this, and found out the only true way of having a game with a very long lifespan is (unfortunately) withhold content to a later date. They were success with the Halo Reach level-cap. They are now keeping our first Raid locked until Sept 16th, with no dates for the other 5. I think this is a good idea. I know I'm gonna blow through, and repeat, every mission/strike/patrol within no time. I like knowing when I'm done, we're not DONE!
@solid Might i ask what destiny was hyped up to be? Because no game is with out faults and although destiny is not perfect, it still is a great gane. I love the contrast between thw pve and pvp elements of the game. Tired of story mode play pvp, the pvp is harder than other shooters, you have to work for your kills and its pretty rewarding. If bungie keeps up with dlc and events this game can evolve
Just because people don't like it =/= negativity. For example, if people complain about "Amy" game being trash doesn't mean they are being negative. Just because you refuse to hear those complaints doesn't make you positive. I think people on n4g throw that word around alot but are not using it right.
"if people complain about "X" game being trash doesn't mean they are being negative." What would you call it then? Constructive-criticism? I don't understand how constructive calling something "trash" can be.
This game is like a basketball court its just a court then you get some friends together and the fun ensues. If your friends are busy a pick up game is fun too oh and you could always explore.
ahhhh yes its "cool" to hate the popular games....all of the people who yelled and screamed "YOU HAVE TO PLAY BOARDERLANDS 2 WHY ISNT EVERYONE PLAYING THIS GAME!" are now pissed that Destiny is gaining the popular vote so they HAVE to hate this game.
Kingdoms of Amalur? Pfft it's a stripped down Phantasy Star Online that doesn't let you feed your mag (ghost)!
Kingdoms of Amalur had great fluid game play and a huge world to explore - other than that I don't understand the comparison. Kingdoms is SP only, Destiny is MP online only.
I love my time spent with Destiny.
Im loving the game so far. My only complaints are that the load screens some too be a lil longer than the alpha and the beta.
I'm level 14 warlock, grinding like mug! Having an absolute ball!
Destiny is good, but it is in no way the game bungie and activison promised. Why they marketed it as this giant evolving universe is beyond me. It's the exact opposite in many ways, and has a lot of design flaws that you would of thought died at the end of the 360 and ps3 life cycle.
This is the first release of a concept idea that has a 10 year life cycle. I am sure we are only experiencing the beginning.
Yep you can see how the game is built to just snap on new areas earth has Russia just add a new country /add more planets in expansions its no diff than what wow or swotor do.
Wow, my brain is almost dead from all those FREAKING CAPS! That said, why do you care? And why should we care how you spend your money?
AMAZING game.. Loved the beta, love grinding, love Bounties, love the Solo and Co-op play everything from level design to stylish kills to special attacks to strategic enemy fights.. The leveling system is awesome as well. Destiny got it right and because it's popular it's a target for keyboard warrior hate ..that means it's doing good. :)
I thought this would be getting almost universal 9s and 10s. I'm stunned. Small group of people think it's the best game ever. And equal number think it's crap. Seems to be settling out at a 6 or 7. That's not enough to get it through Xmas with MCC SO and LOTR coming out.
kingdoms of almur was a under rated game.heres hoping for a part 2 one day
I'm definitely addicted to this game right now. Screw the haters who haven't played the full game yet.
