Destiny. A game that had high expectations that fell flat once released. Yet everyday I found myself playing the same missions, raids and strikes over and over. Everyday I look forward to get one of the many random drops for having absolutely no skill whatsoever. Don’t start me up with the randomness of the loot. My God the rage is real!
Some would argue with me about getting the good stuff. There is one formula my friend Blake told me that will guarantee me epic loot. Your ready for it…. TIME x GRIND = EPIC LOOT. I especially don’t have the time. Literally have to play constantly to get the good stuff. Also lets not go into the crucible. The way it is set up now is very noob friendly. The crucible basically gives lower lvl’d characters a chance to win by making high lvl’d gear capped off so the true damage and shield numbers are not enough to destroy the competition. Many players seeking to test their true strength with their lvl’d up gear need to wait for the Iron Banner that comes ever so often. Then there is the Metacritic score.
With scores like that who would want to play this subpar game. I would. You know why. Bungie may have done a horrible job with the story. They may have fudged the script to the point where you want to strangle your ghost so he doesn’t say anything.
Then there is the connection errors. So help me God if I see another “Bee” error…..YEAH anyway they need fix that ASAP. Nuff time man be in a bad strike mission and boom connection error. Then sometimes you don’t even have any issues with your internet and you be getting boot out the room steady. So why do we play this game still….
They did a few things right. The firefights is on point.Not like in Call of Duty where you can bend bullets around corners. The co-operative strikes and raids with your best buddies are just so addictive. Then there is the loot. OMG like Pokemon you got to get them all. Although the Loot system is random you do get some interesting loot. Then when you get that one gun that touch your spot….HEAVEN!!! You keep playing to get all the perks for the gun or armor. Then the addiction kicks in. Farming for Shards and Energy. Hitting up Venus for the Spirit Bloom aka Ganja of Venus. Hitting up the Patrol missions on the Moon for the Helium. Yes my friends the game may have its short comings but in a twisted way we ignore those short comings and keep coming back for more. There is also the Expansions. Which will extend the story of the game and oh yes…MORE LOOT!!!
So as you can see this is one game that will grow on you more than you know. Once you hit lvl 20 the grind for light begins. One can almost say they intentionally made the game noob friendly so you don’t feel the pressure to lvl up as much. Shoot they don’t even show you the amount of times you died in the crucible match scoreboard. Make it so that you always feel like you accomplished something. The new expansion looks really fun and Bungie is really trying to work on the game knowing they have many faults. Yes Destiny may have it’s downfalls but all in all the game is doing something that haven’t ever been done. A FPS with MMO type qualities. So I am Ruscle and I am addicted to Destiny.
