Nah, W3 had lousy gameply. The lore seemed to make up for it. People who hate on destiny treat it like a single player story based game - which it really isn't so.

Ignorance is bliss and such.


Ive seen complaints of the combat for the most part. The rest of the game is damn near perfect.

Destiny only had its gameplay going for it. All that giving you the story in pieces was pathetic. You basically had to wait 3 years after Destiny released to get a "full game".

Idk who treats it as a single player game nor do I get what point you were trying to make with that comment.

Youve seen complaints of the combat (for the most part), yet it only had its gameplay (combat) going for it? Did you mean something else?

Also, all we've got are stories. Its not A Story. Never was never will. Destiny is made up of stories. Plural. Even after 3 years, it wasnt a full game story wise. There is so much lore and so many characters, and so many stories about it all in there. If you like that setting and world or not is subjective.

Its not a single player story driven game. Heck, its not even a story driven mmo. In a sense its like Dark Souls is not about the story. Its there, but you can only read it in cards (sort of). You go back for the setting and the characters and the lore.

If you look at it like a tv show with story arcs as seasons, then gameplay is just the icing.

Complaints for The Witchers combat. Destiny's gameplay is what was best about Destiny.

Difference with Dark Souls, shows, or the witcher is they're not nickel and diming you. You have to wait 3 years for a full game. Even then shit like shaders are sold unlike the first game.

Could be interesting.

The story/lore seemed like it had potential but the GaaS/multiplayer/loot game aspects of it got in the way

Destiny's world building is amazing, and one of the best fleshed out universes in gaming. It's ability to tell the story in game is... well complicated. But then again, I am not sure if I am against their way of telling the story. Your character literally woke up with no memory of the past and no knowledge of the present and were sent out into the world with a gun and stuff shooting at you.

Maybe a good movie or TV series would actually allow the games to have a decent story and a little more depth to the world etc.

Take 1: That wizard came from the moon.

Take 100: THAT WIZARD CAME FROM THE MOOOOOOOOON!

That's a wrap.

Destiny's story is quite epic I just wish it was conveyed better in game. A TV series would do this title justice.

"I want it to fail, so I will pretend it did"

Tell me which one of your favorite 'story-based-game' has multiple dedicated lore channels.
As a person with too many hours in d2 now... the game needs those channels cause it is absolutely trash at telling an actual story or explaining its own lore. Shadowkeep(latest expac) I am looking at you!

I actually liked what Shadowkeep did to actually mode the narrative forward. Thought it was the most interesting thing they’ve done with it generally. The cliffhanger ending is ... it’s bungie... We learned that lesson with Halo 2.

If they do some kind of adaptations. I imagine it will all be based on side stories they have. Nothing to do with the events of the games.

I didn’t even realize Guardian’s were immortal until the release of D2. The whole space fantasy holy war thing amongst angels, demons and gods went mostly over my head until maybe a year or two ago. There’s a whole lot of Star Wars influence here and it’s kinda replaced it for me as my space fantasy goto since Disney Wars is a shitfest.

and why are they immortal? To justify the inclusion of a player Respawn mechanic in gameplay. I do admire them trying to make sense out of video game rules.

I look forward to internet freaking out that the Darkness enemy in D3 will just be other players.

You are just helping my single player arguement. There is no full game. There are ups and downs, but it will not be a full game, just an instance in time with higher or lower quality content added. Thats it. Its always changing and adding - for better or worse.

Bloodborne, and it shits on Destiny from great heights with regards to lore and gameplay.
Soulsbrne is good but I personally find Destiny lore to have more depth than Soulsborne. You probably believe yourself to be objectively right for choosing a safe opinion.
The real advantage of Destiny lore being that it is evolving since 2014 unlike individual Soulsborne games. This leads to amazing storylines like Shin Malphur/Dredgen Yor, Book of Sorrows and anything related to Vex.

It will be about guardians trying to get to the loot cave before the evil devs destroy it.

Hopefully, its about stuffs like Battle of Twilight Gap, Collapse or Shin Malphur and Dredgen Yor story, which only exit in in-game lore cards.

Ehh, at this point I'm getting tired of defending Destiny. Its a great game to me, it has one of the more interesting lore's in any video game I've played thus far. But some people just want to hate Destiny. Opinions I guess.

That said, I'm really excited about the potential of having more Destiny in other formats. I was hoping for books but TV shows/a movie would be great too.
