    I love D2, but I agree with everything you said here.

    I will admit that I love the game but I 100% agree with this video. Personally I find your criticism to the most valid criticism I've seen against the game bdobbins attacks stuff that isn't even in the game and renns arguments are just plain stupid. Bdobbins and renns just can't replicate the validity and strength of your arguments and that I can respect. Anyway keep up the good work.

    I miss D1's Grimoire. They had entries on every enemy race, their variants, even their weapons. It was really cool.

    I'm fine with eververse. They aren't selling exotic weapons, just cosmetics. It's still rather... strange how they realease an exotic and put 2 skins in eververse (almost like they're restricting the cool stuff from the beginning :0) but other than that, they are NOT gonna be able to fund the game off of one-time purchase dlc and season passes.

    Do I think its repetitive? Yes. Do I think it's boring? No.

    I feel a god way to improve the story-telling would be releasing a warmind length campaign with every new season, instead of the fetch quests and bounties we get now

    Destiny was supposed to be wayyyyy better than any of the games we got. There’s a great TheXvid video explaining all the development hell the original game went through and why the story was so garbage

    Weren't you done with Destiny years ago? Oh wait, why be done with something when you can keep pushing content out about why you hate the game all the while lining your pockets with ad revenue, likes, and subs. Streamers amuse me.

    While I do agree that the Destiny story is disappointing (and was ultimately why I stopped playing the series) I think you do a disservice to the game, and to logic in general, when you make a statement like "full of vague teasers that hint at a depth that isn't actually there unless you become a scholar of destiny lore". That's what depth is? Stuff that isn't immediately apparent to a casual player.
    That said, it is annoying to have a game so focused on story and cinematics be so utterly bad at it. All the interesting narrative in the game comes from the lore, which is kinda seperated from the game in a weird way.
    It's not like dark souls where the mystery and obscurity of the game is part of the whole experience. It's got one foot in the Halo style linear cinematic bespoke story campaign camp, and one foot halfway in the dark-souls style explore world and discover the lore camp and winds up being lackluster in both camps, leaving me both wanting a more defined cinematic campaign or more integrated lore in the world

      Tar Alacrin id disagree on the depth part just because a lot of movies and form of media including games have a lot more depth then destiny and go about it right destiny isn’t a in depth lore it’s a lore that doesn’t care because they don’t even begin the lore to warrant going off on your own

    Leaving Activision is the greatest thing Bungie has ever done. Destiny is a game that I fell in love with, but was then disappointed by heavy monetization, and then in September I heard about Shadowkeep, and I fell in love again with a game free of Activision’s awful grasp. They had escaped them and I am happy they’ll finally start making good things again.
    Edit: Also I believe all of the season passes come with Shadowkeep. At least until the next big expansion.

    A good way to earn more stuff to get progressing in Destiny 2 as a new player is simply by playing through the old campaigns.

    This franchise and IHE is like peanut butter and jelly. On their own they can suck pretty bad, even though sometimes you’re in the mood for them. But when you put them together, you have a fantastic fucking sandwich.

    i play destiny alot and i am one of those addicts i genuinely like the lore but the campaigns i dislike a lot.I liked Forsaken campaign wise it was a great story but when I finished the Shadowkeep campaign I felt just empty,I didnt feel anything I was just like ok sure cool that happened.It pales in comparison to forsaken or taken king.I also agree that destiny sets up what are basically cliffhangers for example in shadowkeep we learn that darkness is on the moon and we have a mysterious encounter with it and now we have to wait a shit ton of time for it to become meaningful in any way

    I went back due to friends nagging me, I was completely pi**ed off, absolute rubbish, overstretched repetitive content is the truth as far as i'm concerned...Not once have they listened to the original players needs, yes they keep pretending and promising they are but it's just empty promises...I can seriously see them burying themselves, eververse was a good start to that along with the same weapons re skinned over and over again. Iron banner hasn't had any new weapons for a long time and the recent new armour as they called it just looked the same as the iron lord stuff we had eons ago..The repetitiveness will eventually come back and bite them in the arse!
    1 keep the content changing, something they don't do and one of their biggest mistakes
    2 more dungeons with extra special weapons and armour you can't get anywhere else in the game, the dungeons we've experienced are vast spaces, we pass many doors, corridors, why not have different routes and rewards, different bosses, so many possibilities they don't use..
    3 Specialised full armour sets different to everything else, for example, iron the rewards you get armour pieces same as everyone else, why not make it so if you do the rewards and the full quest you receive one full different set specific to that iron banner, different to the ones in the rewards, give us something special, spoil us bungie, we put enough fu**ing hours into this repetitive crap as it is
    4.....Sorry, I could go on and on, i'm a player from day one, got every game, that's it i'm done.., People from other clans joined ours due to their clans players loosing interest in destiny so we accepted them, however, everyone's starting to feel the same,our top players are sick of it just like me......It's a shame, they have ruined something that could have been fantastically out of this world....
    Another thing Bungie! stop giving new players light jumps, nothing pi**es us off more than grinding our arses off through all this repetitive crap, then you give new players a light boost to catch us original players up and they havn't done a thing in the game....Original players should be like demi gods or gods to new players, all new players should have to go through everything as we have to build the light, we should be passing through worlds with begginers still on light level one looking at our characters hoping they can achieve that one day..But no you don't do that 'cause Bungie knows everyone would get pi** bored and switch it off....
    A very pi**ed off player that's put a lot of time into destiny listening to promises that are never kept....Eventually people will start to realise they're kidding themselves and getting ripped off in the process....

    This is how i feel about destiny. I'm forcing myself to play. I hadn't get into my stream account so I'm buying everything again and now i don't even want to play anymore lol it's boring. U have to pay for the game plus the best loot is in eververse

  • Winston Fuller
    Winston Fuller 17 days ago

    I must admit, as much as i hate (.... ha ha ...) to, that yes, this is exactly how i felt. Really had the same reaction to the new D2 as you. In fact, i found myself literally playing with the sound off, even through the ghost talky points, that were not cut scenes, so that i could just get through the grind faster. Frankly Nolan Norths' voice is starting to get boring to me. What is worse, is that Stardew Valley is more engaging to me than this game. Perhaps it is because i do not have a dedicated raid group and I do not get to see the "end content". I disagree with you with one thing though, D3 is probably when we will see a possible new enemy group (yes i would like to see moth people too).

      Teon Daye You do realize that this is highly opinionated and that this isn’t even a part of the free content right? Believe me if you don’t like the shooting or the looting then it’s not for you. If you want to give this game an actual chance than judging it by its cover then complete the free content or play Forsaken.

    Destiny has one of the best stories of all games if you actually do a bit of reading. Don't judge by campaign

    • ML Taskmaster
      ML Taskmaster 8 days ago

      Nikkove Wolfe except that’s how you judge a story is by the campaign your talking about lore which in itself is fucking horrible anyway even if you read everything

    PANCAKEMINEZZ 19 days ago

    The best way to describe Destiny as a series is amazing ideas, but terrible execution. A lot of the concepts and ideas they have are great and interesting, but the way the events play out or how it's shown/told is so awkward and poor.
    Forsaken, for instance, has a great idea of going on a wild Western revenge quest... But the way it's presented is just disjointed "levels" of killing bosses. Even those levels had good ideas in them:
    -A pike boss you have to chase down. However, the way it plays out is more of just a slight strafe battle with the AI.
    -A sniper boss you have to hunt, but are also hunted by: plays out like a small scavenger hunt where the boss just stares at you for five minutes before his big purple Lazer gives him away.
    -A trickster who plays on your expectations of game mechanics: dumbs the tricks down by falling into the same routines after their one trick gets you once.
    Those are just a few examples that sum up Destiny as a whole. There are some good things here and there, but they aren't above average (especially when execution is taken into the mix). The only thing above average, even great, are their ideas... Bjt you don't get credit for ideas. Everyone has ideas. The real talent is putting those ideas into a tangible state in a way that makes sense.
