Destiny doesn’t have enough content, and its first expansion isn’t adding enough to keep me from leaving.
Because Halo comes out next week? Joking, I'm quite disappointed that there ins't enough to do in the game and also disappointed that they've already announced Destiny 2. Whatever happened to the 10 year plan for Destiny...
The 10 year plan was the franchise, not a single game... There's also more content in Destiny than any other modern shooter offers at launch.
@thekhurg Halo :MCC has way more at launch. Just saying.
Ed, MCC is not a game, its a compilation of 4 games.
You know what's insane? The fact that we're probably going to have to spend $200+ to get the full experience before the next game comes out. I'm sure that Bungie made this deep, fantastic game, but Activision forced them to cut it to pieces to benefit the bottom line.
@ tomshoe, I keep reading people saying activision made bungie do this or that when infact bungie has all the control. the contract states that activision has the right to publish the title nothing more nothing less bungie has all the control http://destiny.wikia.com/wi...
@Tom It's no different than any other MMO. You run content over and over for the gear grind, new content is released and you do it again. If you pvp, then you just pvp. People keep trying to claim content was cut or this game was lacking. Bungie delivered exactly what they advertised regarding how this game was going to work. Instead of the monthly subscription requirement, you instead pay for content updates (ie DLC) that is delivered quicker than what your standard MMO offers. The content coming in December would have been out of place had it arrived at launch. You're dealing with the Vex and the Vault of Glass during the launch timeline. That threat will be over in the progression of the persistent universe they're creating, and the guardians will turn their attention to the Hive and Crota.
@THEkhurg Yep got to agree on that.
idk about all that
content wise i would say its destiny is average. because the pvp is basic the story was non existant and the co op is great but how long are doing the same missions going to hold u over. and lets be honest even though it claims to be an mmo u really dont get alot of custimization content on the disk and to even start seeing a real veriation in guns u have to get into the mid 20's come on before that there are litterally 4 primary guns to choose 4 this us a fps for gods sake...and tbh still a full story would have been nice not just the opening levels and half assed tacked on side missions to trick stupid ppl into thinking the story was longer than it actually was. thaTs why destinyt is a 6.5-7.5/10 and not a 9-10/10 for that fundimental reason no story at least what came on the disk. u shouldnt have to pay extra for dlc on a game to get a worth while strory out of it just because devs/publishers are greedy dlc should be bonus but in destiny's case the trying to make the dlc the main story wich is fucked up
NaughtyDogs is correct. Bungie did promise a 10 year plan for Destiny see the amount of agrees that out number the disagrees that means fans know what they heard from developers mouth and that also means the developer back peddled on their promise to make sequels. Bungie lied to fans, I was expecting 10 years of development and now I wish I wouldn't have bought the digital guardian edition as I am forced to keep this crappy as game and its under promised expansions.
Destiny was fun for a bit but the multiplayer is seriously lacking. they need bigger matches like 16v16 and they need bigger maps to encourage sniping and add capture the flag it's like come on bungie should have just made it similar to the original halo and they would have done just fine
some of my friends are playing MCC for few days now...can't wait for my copy! Destiny is just a grind without a purpose. Dumb (compared to halo) and uninteresting enemies, very limited gameplay (wtf invisible walls everywhere! even on small hills!) and non existant story. Bungie, I'm a big fan but you screwed up this time. Glad 343 took over halo. They're doing amazing job.
Okay, so OP, your comment really annoyed me. First things first, Destiny 2 has NOT been officially announced, it was revealed during an Activision financial call that early production was underway on the title. Second, ANY developer worth their salt who are planning a future for their franchise begin planning WELL before. Somewhere, there is a Ubisoft developer who has just starting workong on the Assassins Creed games for 2017. 2015 and 2016 are already well into development. Does that disappoint you? Finally, just because they have started work on it, doesn't mean Destiny 1 is shafted, nor does it mean that Destiny 2 is going to be released next year. I am fully expecting a 2016 release at the earliest. How can you POSSIBLY say "Whatever happened to the 10 year plan"??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? !?!?! Them starting work on the sequel is EXACTLY THAT!!!! THEM WORKING ON THEIR 10 YEAR PLAN. Far out...... The most annoying thing about N4G is that if you don't get into the comments early, this kind of stupidity can run rampant throughout the comments.
Destiny sucked in so many ways. Glad I was able to unload my physical copy. The MCC blows away destiny in every conceivable way! You defender's of this crapfest can play all you want.
Personally I found more gameplay (content or not) in this game than in any FPS I've played. i love the way they have included four different AI (as in the 4 completely different enemy races you encounter) that was out of my FPS dreams. The gameplay is fun, and thats all I need. On hard difficulty the game is a completely different beast. I hate playing on normal because it becomes a walk in the park, but on hard, man. I love the challenge.
Nobody said the game was missing "gameplay"... Content on the other hand? Yeah, you pay for that separately.
maybe I should rephrase, by gameplay, I mean the only thing that counts. Gameplay as in, the game is fun, and I've put in more hours in it than I have on other games with "content" a game of this caliper, I don't mind paying for extra content on. To me, whats important is that they made a fun and engaging game. Its challenging, there are multiple alien races (unlike most games that have 1, or 2 max) with different AI and different gameplay mechanics. So I'm fully content with Destiny.
What happen to the huge MMO/RPG world??? You could tell on the beta that the locations weren't that big at all. Sucks because the game looks and plays well but they needed more to it.
I agree after I got all three classes lvld up, I kinda stopped went from 50 plus hours a week to 3 hours a week. Just not enough to do plain and simple. PvP need voice chat badly! I'm just done, plus I play on Xbox and I'm not down with being shafted so bye bye Bungie. I will remember the great times we share, and you have gotten $500 out of me over the years but that will most likely be the final total.
halo is a remake that will fade quickly its not a new game with new content its a out dated remake i dont know why people are acting like its the second coming of Christ
I regret buying digitally. If I'd bought a physical copy, I'd have traded it in by now.
Take my advice and don't ever buy digit games anymore for many reasons. One being not being able to trade in the game back, second being digital games eat up your HD, etc
Or he can just do what he wants to.
It's digital or Gamefly for me. I trade games in so rarely, that those two options are great for me.
The hdd argument is gone for next gen consoles.
I'm only doing digital for Online only games from now on.
same here. But I got burned with Tomb Raider
I could play this game forev....wait...wait.... the boredom just hit me like a ton of bricks.
Haha... My favourite part in destiny was this one sided conversation with the speaker. The Speaker: " I could tell you of the great battle centuries ago, how the Traveller was crippled. I could tell you of the power of The Darkness, its ancient enemy." but he wont. lol. YaaaAAAaaaawn...
Eh.. I still play at least 3 hours a day..
I do too.
Me too. Mostly 2hrs for bounties and daily's and an hr of cruscible. Depending on if I'm sucking or Good at it that day.
I've been slowing down, since the Nov hitters have arrived, but I will more than likely settle back into Destiny mid-Dec and for the foreseeable future.
All I care about is finding a raid group to get the armor.. I go on and do the daily missions on max difficulty and if it's a Tuesday I will do the Weekly and Nightfall as well. Other than that, unless I am going to do the raid, no point in going on..
I did but once I saw 20$ dlc for almost no content, I decided to be mostly done with the game. There are a lot of other games for me to be playing.
Lvl 27 a smidge from 28 and just finally got a group together for the raid last night. What's blast it was. Having fun all over again!
I don't feel that way about Destiny, 500 hours in, I'm still getting a thrill from the fights, the crucible , and the fun I'm having with my sons, which is invaluable, to me. However, once certain games deliver from Gamefly, I'll be busy.
LOL.. I thought the same once I got some gamefly games, but it's still nothing but Destiny ;)
Umm. Because your tired of the game beating you in everything challenging.
Every reviewer I have ever watched play a shooter, makes my head hurt.
Because skilled gamer's are few and far in between.
I just sold mine at a loss on ebay, ah well lesson learned.
I LOVE DESTINY !
I think I'll get back to destiny, but got other games to play: Alien Isolation, Advanced Warfare multiplayer, and Dragon Age. Eventually...
See i agree that the game could use additional missions and content , and will get it . But the whole logic of trading it for another fps , because some are tired of doing the same things , mostly to repetitively do the same things in another fps , baffles me
WAKE me up when destiny gets better next year halo is coming
have fun playin the same games from ten years ago "ms fanboys logic"
That's my problem, I loved all the halo games but can't see myself going back and playing it all over again.
Its funny. I thought I would lose interest in Destiny once more games started coming out, yet I haven't. Not only that, but I downloaded Outlast the other day for the $5 deal on PSN. Haven't even tried playing it yet. I have Diablo 3, which I never beat from before Destiny came out. I have Shadow of Mordor, which came out AFTER Destiny. And you know what? I haven't played any of them because every time I sit down to play video games for the 3-4 hours every night that i play, i jump right into Destiny because its all i'm interested in playing right now. And I love every minute of it. I've had the game since launch day, too.
Same here man. I can't get enough. The game is just tons of fun and I get so giddy the night before/day of the Raid in hopes to get the Raid gear I am missing. I love having Xur show up and offer exotics. Also, this guy is judging the DLC without even seeing how in depth they are. Bungie already commented that they are taking a different approach on the story missions on the DLC, who knows if they will be longer? They are giving like 3, I bet they are much longer and more in-depth then the main story. This is the only game I have bought since it launched and I downloaded the two free games from last month and this month of Xbox Live Game with Gold and haven't even tried them. There is just something about this game that has me hooked and I love every minute of it. This is the part in the interview where he said they are doing a different approach: Harold Ryan: The structure of the story in this expansion is different than the story in the core game. Looking at how the story plays and how we wanted to repackage it and reacting to fan feedback, we're taking a different approach to the story in this one. So it's going to be driven in a very interesting way for players, as you meet with Eris in the Tower and follow her guidance through the story.

I'm right there with you guys. I can't stop playing this game LOL. I'm so addicted. I need to get back into Alien Isolation, and I just bought Freedom Wars, but have barely touched it. All I wanna do is play Destiny. BTW, thx for the link about the new story content. Can't wait to check it out.
@TM33: LOL... I've barely made it out of the freedom wars tutorial.. right back to destiny... Thought I was the only one....LOL
Same here,while others might not like it [email protected] that I am hooked. I play Destiny almost everyday one boot away from 30,got almost 400 hours in and wont stop playing it. While I admit Destiny does have its problems, I still enjoy the hell out of it everyday and cant wait for the next expansion. I guess this game is just not for everybody!!
yeah, me too, i fell some regrets for spending so much time (200+ hours) in this game instead of spend it with my family... or some other really good game instead
Let's level up 1 character near 30... But collect loot that is ment for the classes I'm not playing as... So they hope I choose to play as those characters & and do the same s#!t over & over again... Then when my 2nd character is about level 30... I do the same s#!t with the 3rd character... Then desperately await as I hope the DLC can finally bring something I really want to do, to the table!...
Complaining because an MMO is like an MMO?
Well, most games that award you random loot do have a chance to get loot for other classes also. Never played any Diablo games? How about any MMO's? Clearly you haven't, or you wouldn't be crying about this.
I kinda love this game. I recognize the lack of content and its many short comings. But it still delivers an experience that is fairly unique for consoles. Getting online with my buddies in different cities to tackle Nightfall, weekly, Raid in one nigh is my favorite day of the week. My armory is enviable. But now one piece of raid armor. LOL!
i am just not sure what the destiny community is going to do if you leave. it's likely that everything will fall apart. maybe i can enhance your mood with some reality augmenting smoke and convince you on why you ought to stay.
I agree. I love Destiny's mechanics but the content is lacking. I no longer play for fun. I play for 2 hours every day only because that is usually how long it takes to complete bounties and daily/weekly missions. I've seen it all already. The DLC feels as if it will be more of the same but in less quantity. No real value. I think I will skip the individual releases for the DLC and wait for the ultimate/game of the year edition. I really hope Bungie finds a way to appease and satisfy customers like myself who expected more on the disc at launch. If they follow the same formula in the next iteration of the series they can count me out.
I only really played it for a couple of weeks and got bored of it which was the same story with Titanfall and even the new COD game and that's only been out a few days. I'm really looking forward to Halo though. I don't buy many games digitally but I did with that. It works out more expensive for me than a retail copy but it's still great value for money anyway. Plus I get to play it at 12:01 GMT and the day one patch has downloaded so I'm all set :)
Hey, at least you have friends to play with! I mostly go solo/random matchmaking (on PS4) ... and the boredom is 10x worse. I'm ready to call it quits, too. Grinding for rep is a pain, the bounties keep repeating, and the drops I get from strike playlists are mostly useless. And since I'm stuck now on level 25, I may *never* see the raids, which some people say are the best part of the game. :(
I totally agree! The raid IMO is still fun but only lasts an hour... Loot system is the definition of BROKEN.
Made the same decision two weeks ago: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Is that your video? Because whoever it is, isn't very smart. 94 hours play time. Sounds like it surely was a waste of money. Saying he spent a shit load of money on the game: - Bought the 360 version - Bought the PS4 bundle - Bought the Xbone Collector's version - Sold the 360 version on Day 2 It is Bungie's fault you did that? What kind of stupid logic is that? Wouldn't you try the game out before you started buying a bunch of copies of it? Bungie removed all the fun stuff from the game? - Loot cave he says? That wasn't fun, it was just a quick way to get loot - Bitching because Bungie fixed an exploit where you could push a boss off the edge? Ridiculous.
What always amazing is that that kind of folk find playing the game normally tedious , but would dig staring at a black hole for hours . "but but it's slow and repetitive to get loot !!!" and what do they do to fix it ? They keep playing with an even more boring exploit
It's always hilarious when uneducated people try to sound smart. Totally missed so many points. Not even worth the time. Your synopsis of how I spent my money on the game and the fact that you assume I am saying I wasted my money is the most hilarious part. GG.
