Destiny 2 feels like a product aimed to be sold to as wide an audience as possible, without ruffling anyone’s feathers when it comes to difficulty.
Sure but its getting better I admit, me and my friends came back for the forsaken expansion and just hope it just improves from there. Enjoying it, not as much as d1 but enjoying it.
Initially i was enjoying it.. I didn't play D1 much may be only the story ... D2 i gave over 100 hours made friends too. Then i don't know I got bored and FC 5 released in March so played that and Since then never got back to D2 ... And i didn't invest on Forsaken either.. So cant comment on how's it at present but i am not going back.
Destiny 2 failed
Why is Destiny 2 a failure? It sold well with more than 50% of sales being digital and it received excellent reviews. The Forsaken expansion just launched and it also scored well. People are actually very positive about Forsaken, and supposedly it tells a good story and introduces a solid new mode. It also just launched on PS+ which should really boost the community. If anything Destiny has recovered from the supposedly weak opening DLCs with arguably its strongest expansion yet. Launching on PC was also a good move. I know people just love to throw shade on Destiny but to say it's a failure is not entirely accurate.
Using "it received excellent reviews" kinda tells a lot about how simple minded you are.
Judging someone based off of one small quote out of a comment that listed many good points kinda tells a lot about how simple minded you are.
Actually, he's right. How does stating facts about something say he's "simple minded" How about this one. The game is pretty good, reviewed well, people are and have enjoyed it so far, yet still, some goofball individuals really need to harp on a game for.....reasons?!
it didnt receive excellent reviews. what it did was remove half of the features of D1. gambling for cosmetics, be it with ingame or real life currency. They lied to the community several times, they throttled the exp gain and several other things. I call that a failure, ive lost my trust in bungie as a company for just straight up lying to consumers and then backpeddling "it was a mistake we are so sorry", when users find out.
It’s an 87 on metacritic, that’s not excellent to you?
I havent seen it get above 7 from any reviewer i respect. Most that gave it that high probably didnt even finish it and get to endgame, because then you will see the flaws (compared to D1). If you can explain why it should get an 8.7 go ahead. From what they removed from D1 features to the cosmetic and loot cashgrabs and lying to the community It doesnt deserve a decent score to me unless you like a game that removed all positive features it predecessor had and replaced it with features that were user unfriendly and only to support the slotmachine. and then they show this roadmap to basically make it more like D1 and not try and rip people off. Lying to people, locking up content that you already paid for, throttling exp to make people buy more loot boxes, n o that doesnt deserve any praise in my opinion. How the mighty bungie has fallen. Was never a big fan of Halo but I could at least respect Bungie for making good games, even though they werent for me. That's not the case anymore.
@UnHoly_One it's actually 85 on meta the version with the most reviews counts
Game is the best game ever made, period.
Subjective, but ok...
I said PERIOD! PERIOD.
buy tampons if you are having trouble with your period.
Yeah, sure, maybe if it were the *only* game ever made.
This game is the best game ever made!
Still, id go outside and venture off....
I'm hoping this is sarcasm because you can't tell with text
You either haven't played many games, or you have horrible taste in games. Don't see how anyone could even put it in their top 10.
Wouldn't even be in the top 1000 in my opinion .
You are delusional
Yet it's worse than a free to play game named Warframe. Destiny is mediocre.
I'm guessing he's trying to start a fanboy fight but who could take him seriously anyway, especially with his Mario avitar. I bet he doesn't own the right console to even play it on.
"Game is the best game ever made, period." LOL! Nope its not Period... But its not bad either..
Just like the first game sure it sold alot but no matchmaking never played with anyone and traded it .
It most certainly does have matchmaking. The only thing there is no matchmaking for is when you go out into the world to do random things on planets. Also Raids. Although you can get Raid tickets and get placed on a team. So in a way there is a way to matchmake for Raids. Just not all the time. Crucible and Strikes both have matchmaking as well. So really there is only one mode that you cannot do matchmaking for, and it just so happens to be the most boring part of the game. So if you weren't able to play with other people then I have no idea what you were doing because there are plenty of opportunities to.
No there was not .
Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 have matchmaking. What game did you play?
"No there was not ." Great argument, buddy.
I think that if you buy it today with the Forsaken expansion, and you havent played it before. You would probably think it was a great game. But for many its a little to late. But im gonna give it a couple of hours.
I played D1 quite a lot for the first 3 months, then got bored and never bought any expansions. I tried the free D2 weekend a while back, got to level 20 and was again bored, the story is still lame. Now I got D2 free with PsPlus and after less than an hour I'm done, I have no interest in continuing. There are too many other better games to play.
The first Destiny game didnt get good untill the release of The taken king. I got bored with D2 to, but i have started playing it again now with the forsaken expansion. And so far i think its a big improvment. But i have only played 20-30 hours. I hope it keeps up!
Destiny sucks since the first one. Biggest letdown from that year.
No you suck at playing it
How can he suck at it when its so easy. At least the first one was challenging.
I mean its been a failure for over a year it really doesn't matter anymore.
destiny 1 was the only game I played for 3 years. The game saw great improvements worth the taken king expansion. So of course, everyone was looking forward to destiny 2 because we all thought bungie learned from their mistakes. Unfortunately that was not true with destiny 2. Bungie made the same mistakes with destiny 2 and now it seems that history will repeat itself.
Wow. Only game??!!
Destiny 1 is the only game me and my friends played for a year straight after it released. Sunk over 600 hours into it. Despite its issues, Destiny offers one of the best co-op experiences in gaming today. The gameplay is fantastic and fun, as most people would agree. Its the other things that people get annoyed with. But there were a LOT of people playing Destiny 1 for a very very long time because of that very reason. The co-opnis extremely fun. Waiting for new. Nightfall missions and the chance to get new exotic gear every week with your buddies was awesome. Especially since the Nightfalls and Raids were challenging, even with a maxed out character. It really was fun.
Yep, i was addicted and every time i try to play another game. A friend will PM to join them on a Raid and i would. Also i was a sherpa help new players complete certain activities.
Yeah I played thousands of hours of destiny 1 but I just couldn't get into destiny 2. I still have the disc but haven't played it at all this year...
It failed to me but admittedly I wasn't much of a fan of the first either.
Warframe ate it's lunch
all im going to say is destiny 1 never went on PS Plus.
Destiny 2 at launch was woefully unfinished and had no vision. I blame time restrictions set by Activision. I thought the campaign was great but there was almost no endgame to be found after beating the story. That, and for some reason they listened when people bitched about the grinding from the first game, which endgame grinding is the only reason why people continue to play MMO games after reaching max level anyways lol. That being said, I gave the new DLC a shot and it is really, really good. Amazing production value, crap ton of end game content. It seems Bungie fixed many of the initial problems. I just wish they had waited a year and released all of it as one package, but you know, $$$. The outlook towards the game would be completely different if it released as it is now last week instead of what we originally got last year.
They rebooted the game part ways through development, which is why it felt unfinished... Sadly the same thing happened with Destiny 1
I agree on all points.
You can say it's a flop or failure all you want. Commercially it is a huge success. I don't even like the game, but failure it is not.
https://www.microsoft.com/e... Yes and I'm going to keep posting this for all to see. I'm pretty sure it's high up on PlayStation's list as well. Numbers don't lie but people love to hate. If you don't like the game then fine but don't knock the people that do like/love it. This site doesn't speak for the entire community. Can't dispute MS's own website lol.
That's fine, still think y'all are suckers.
We are suckers? Because we happily paid for a game that we love and have played for hundreds of hours? Yeah, joke’s on us I guess. Activision really showed us by taking our money and giving us a product that we love. Damn I feel stupid.
Yet people want Bungie to work on Halo. Stay far away please!
The things that people are complaining about are not Bungie's doing. Its Activision. The game itself is fantastic. The gameplay is solid and very fun. It's all the content being placed in DLC packs and locked behind paywalls that really sucks about this game. Releasing it piece by piece. That is all Activision's doing.
Nope, it is Bungie's fault. I'm tired of people unable to come to grip with the mediocrity of Bungie and instead blame everything wrong with the game on Activision. For everything that is good about Destiny, there is something equally as bad that counteracts it. Take gameplay for example - the shooting is great while your character gets stuck walking up steps and and bounces off of objects when jumping is really poor gameplay. Bungie created an interesting and exciting universe with Destiny and in the 5 years since launch all they have been able to add to it are reskinned enemies. Bungie is still unable to fix their matchmaking problems with Crucible, have completely removed Trials of the Nine while they are trying to figure out how the rewards work, and have never figured out what the endgame of Destiny is supposed to be about. Leveling is still tied to gear and right now most of the ways to get that gear in this open-world game is through activities that don't take place in that open-world. None of this is Activision's doing. The thing is, Destiny 2 has improved since launch because Activision tasked 2 other studios to work on the game and try to clean up Bungie's mess. Most of the improvements to the game have come from Vicarious Visions.
Bad business decisions aside, you can't deny that Bungie has some of the best developers there have ever been when it comes to art direction and game play mechanics. Alot of the technical stuff they did with the early Halo games was unprecedented.
Except it didn’t fail. It sold millions of copies. Did it have its issues? Yes, without a doubt. It is in a hetter place now? Absolutely! It still had a ways to go though, but it is in a much better place now.
I’d like to forget a majority of year 1 D2 but D2 forsaken is Destiny in its best form so far. Really enjoying the game again much more than I was before.
Failed? Hahahahaha thanks for the laugh
There's not a Battlefield game more worse than this series. The amazing potential it had to shine from jump is heart shattering.
Some may disagree but it didn't fail at all knowing it sold millions.Some may not see it but Destiny has a fan base.
I think the game was a let down, but as far as subscriber base and sales, was it considered a failure to activision?
I dont know if failure, but in their Q1 investors report it wasnt listed among the highlighted achivements
The only reason its currently bad is because the devs are bunch of wallys who seem like they don't know what they are doing... Its a good game that could be brilliant but its just too much of a mess.... Better or as good as D1?...... No chance not even close.
Their business model is a fail. I personally love Destiny as a multi-player experience, and don't mind paying for an expansion once every year. The season pass however, and the fact that it is a requirement to play the expansions, is very anti-consumer and a total deal breaker for me. What a shame.
there is nothing to admit. the greenlighing of destiny 2 was a brainfart to begin with.
Really? I hope for your sake that you never start your own company. Because apparently you don't like money and wouldn't greenlight products or services that make you millions.
The only thing this game has going for it that it's not a crushing disappointment like the first. With Destiny 2 I knew exactly what to expect and saved money by not buying it.
Sure that some people claim that the forsaken expansion is good and Bungie has 'redeemed themselves', but just wait until everyone has completed the raid/reached the max light, there will be nothing left to do.
