Why Bungie and Destiny 1 & 2 are Developer and Game of the Decade

From CinelinX:

It’s almost time. The clock is ticking and soon we’ll bid farewell to the decade. It’s been a decade filled with monumental triumphs and colossal failures. However, if there is one word we can use to describe these last ten years, it’s perseverance. Perseverance to continue moving forward, despite the strife and hardships we were …

Destiny has shaped most modern games at this point.

In what way did Destiny shape modern games? I cant see how this game is what others drew inspiration from.

Maybe if you have a very limited exposure to the types of games you play.

Welshy57d ago

Maybe if literally the only other games you have played in your life are Anthem or The Division.

Let's call a spade a spade, Destiny is a derivative of Borderlands and Halo with every AAA live service trick in the book bogging the solid gunplay and experience down.

I had a great time initially in D1 when it was fresh and new, so I'm not going to be stupid and say it's a bad game, but it's so far from "game of the decade" its laughable.

So....

CDPR makes Witcher 2 and Witcher 3 (And it's lengthy ass DLCs), Arkane makes Dishonored 1, 2, Prey and Death of The Outsider, From Software makes Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro, Supergiant makes Bastion, Transistor, Pyre and Hades, Platinum makes MGR, Bayonetta 2, MGR, NIER: Automata and Astral Chain.

Here you are saying a shitty GaaS game and its developer is GOTG/DOTG.... What horsecrap is this.

Bro this is paid PR nonsense

These journalists don't represent us gamers. They are sell outs

They are so scared to call out big publishers who won't include MT at launch but than fee months later patched in. These journalists know they are coming yet you never hear them call it out

Jim sterling said his producer use to tell him not to mention anything like that

The only game that anyone could possibly use to defend Bungie as developer of the decade is Halo: Reach. Destiny is an uninspired mess of a game so they get zero praise for that. They created an mmo-lite which was guilty of making the same mistakes other mmos learnt from years before. That alone shows how out of their depth they were with this project.

It blows my mind how they got so sick of making Halo, but then go on to make a game with mechanics that are eerily reminiscent of Halo's. So disappointing to see such a good developer go downhill.

Game Of The Decade goes to Minecraft.

Released in 2011 and has went on to become the best selling game of all time and still today is one of the most popular games available.

rainslacker57d ago

Minecraft released in 2009.

Otherwise, I agree with the rest of your comment.

Vasto56d ago (Edited 56d ago )

Minecraft was in preview alpha / beta in 2009. Minecraft officially released in 2011.

"Minecraft is a sandbox video game created by Swedish developer Markus Persson, released by Mojang in 2011 and purchased by Microsoft in 2014. It is the single best-selling video game of all time, selling over 180 million copies across all platforms by late 2019, with over 112 million monthly active players."

rainslacker56d ago

I guess that's true. I just remember it being a big thing while it was still in alpha and beta.

D__RAiL57d ago

thats because even a 3 year old can play it

Game came out in 2009, and even then it’s still not the best game that came during 2000-2009

Minecraft was in a preview alpha / beta in 2009. Mincraft officially released in 2011.

" Its Not The Best " LMAO, who said anything about best? Its the game that has had the most impact on the gaming genre for the entire decade. Also if its the best selling game of all time then it is the best.

2pacalypsenow56d ago

Then I guess you think since Avengers End Game has made the most money, it’s the best movie ever made?

Lol
