Surprised Patrick didn't call it butt-rock. I love GB but they love bashing metal.

Do they? Maybe I missed something

I don't really get how this is IGF's fault. Unless they are directing the people voting to vote for one game over another, it's each judge's personal choice how and why they vote a specific way. I would guess that is common to pretty much every award in any field (aside from physical competition).

The rules and organization regarding judging are lax enough to allow things like this to happen.

Yeah, but no matter what the rules are, there isn't any way they can control WHY voters vote how they do. It's literally impossible. Any decision you task someone with making cannot be 100% objective.

@wolfgame: I see what you're saying, but the loot cave grind and all that isn't really accelerating through the content. You see all the content in the game (minus the raids) during the normal course of the "story", which doesn't take all that long to complete. Everything after that is just going back and re-doing the same stuff over and over to get some number to increase/get a better gun.

Got the chest piece 5 times in a row now...and the only blue item I have left is my helmet. Wonderful. Fuck this stupid game.

@mooseymcman: Yeah, I think I'm out too. I did a few of the queen's missions and got the same piece of loot every time (which was worse than what I already had). I think I'm finally ready to admit to myself that this game sucks.

I'm right on the cusp of turning level 26, but this sounds right up my alley. Hopefully I can hit level 26 tonight and then hit you up.

For me, the 24 to 26 grind has really taken a toll on my interest in the game. I think 24 is where you can max out on boue gear, so then you need to grind rep to be able to buy legendary armor (or hope you find it in game, ha!) and then the upgrade paths for those take a lot of resources. I'm basically in the position now where I am on the cusp of being 26, but Im going to have to farm helium filaments on the moon for a few hours to do it. The only 2 legendary engrams I've found have both produced green gear.

Wait, do the raids really take like 5 hours to do? Looks like I'll never be playing those. Oh well, later destiny. You were fun for a few hours.

Yeah the requirements are pretty bonkers considering how little there is to actually do in the game. I played pretty much all night and never got any drops better than what I had already equipped and that involved doing the same strikes multiple times. Considering how tedious the strikes are, and how few of them there are, they really need to up the incentive to actually keep doing them. I started finding people dropping out of the beginning of strikes when doing the playlist, which I assume is because they got randomly put in to a strike they JUST did (which happened to me numerous times) or they did recently enough to not want to do it. That then puts you down a person, which makes the strike harder, which makes the fact that you don't get anything from it that much more frustrating. Hopefully the raids add something to the experience, because I can't really see myself playing too much more of this.
