Destiny, in its current form, is a sad farce of a game. It should not have shipped like this.
After working to level 24 and scraping together everything I can for 25, I think I’m done. Many game mechanics are a total mess. The game doesn’t even teach you how to play or about many core elements like what the hell engrams are or who decrypts them. Multiple missions are literally repeats of another. There is no story, it’s just a cobbled bunch of scifi babbling hung on Dinklage’s squandered voice talent. There’s a lot of evidence that a *ton* of content and likely story got ripped out at the last minute, but no good explanation for why.
Destiny has tremendous potential, and I’m going to keep the door open for when and if Bungie tries again to deliver. I still really want to play Destiny, but this isn’t it. – Read on Path.
