I just purchased Resident Evil Revelations on the 360 the other day, so I'm playing that for the first time to start things off. I like it so far, especially after the unbelievable train-wreck of RE6. Alien: Isolation is next week, then The Evil Within the week after. Maybe I'll somehow get to playing the Last of Us again on the PS4, but I don't know. In any case, it's shaping up to be a good October for gaming!

I really don't know what my very first usage of the Internet was. Kinda crazy to think about, actually. It very well could've been video game-related, though. I used to spend a ton of time on Cheat Code Central looking up PS1 game cheats. But I wanna say we had the Internet before I got my PS1, so I don't know for sure.
OP is spot on. In fact, I literally cannot believe how anyone can defend this game as anything but, or be content with what it has to offer. Aside from the core gameplay and graphics, Destiny is sorely lacking in every other area. I also bought into the hype and marketing, and I was very excited for it. Unfortunately it turned out to be one of the most disappointing games I've ever played, especially in terms of marketing versus hype.
Also, Waterworld is a better movie than Destiny is a game.
The only actor I picked out when playing (besides Dinklage) was Peter Stormare, only because his voice is so distinct. I hate to see one of favorite actors' talents wasted like that, though.
I honestly don't know what Bungie's intentions were with the story. They spent so much time talking it up over the past few years only for everyone to realize that none of it is actually in the game. I don't understand why they would blow a good portion of the budget on a stellar voice cast when their game has no real characters to speak of.
@gatehouse: Extermination WAS really cool. It was kind of the precursor to RE4 when survival horror shifted to more actiony mechanics. I think I still might own it somewhere...but yeah, I loved it, even if I only beat it once, and using cheats. It was kind of a difficult game, but it had decent combat and great atmosphere, not to mention really disturbing monster design.
Definitely gonna get The Evil Within, even though I'm fairly skeptical about it. I'm also cautiously optimistic about Alien: Isolation. Sounds like it could be really great, but it also seems like it could be a fairly brief experience.
I wasn't planning on getting it, despite my love for the series. But after Destiny has been such a massive letdown, I'm considering picking it up to satiate my desire for an actual good loot-based shooter. I haven't been following it at all, so I don't know much about the new classes, but if they fix the busted loot system and ridiculous difficulty of 2, i'll almost certainly give it a shot.
