TEN YEAR PLAN FOKS
There might be some story down the line, but will there be enough that care at that point?
I know it will take a hell of a lot to make me care about any of the Destiny fiction going forward. I love story in games, but at this point my main concern for the future of this series is having enough to actually do in the games to sustain more than a couple of weeks of play time.
I wonder how many are like me. In that we're completely the opposite.
The thing I want most from Destiny, from that world, is a really interesting narrative. Like, they have this kind of complex world, and they've established some ground rules about the allegiances of the different factions, even if those ground rules are really--really--vague at the moment.
Some manner of space intrigue is exactly what would get me to care way more about the proceedings of the game. Destiny has significant problems beyond its narrative, of course. The mission design is just completely flaccid. But, even still, I've put in some sixty hours and will likely devote one or two-dozen more to the game. Even if it's Halo Extended Fiction-level nonsense, it'd still be something.
Well, I was certainly disappointed by the lackluster story and I'd be absolutely delighted if the fiction became something I cared about as the series progressed, but I guess at this point I've enjoyed the core gameplay so much that really what I want most out of the series, for now at least, is more stuff to do. The fact that the parts of the game with the least amount story (raid, crucible, and strikes) are what I've enjoyed most about the game is largely the source of these feelings.
