I understand everything you are saying but there is something about that classic Bungie "30 seconds of fun" that I can't stop gobbling up. I thought I would be ditching this game once the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V came, but I see myself entering my man cave every night and grabbing the Destiny box to keep working for that nice rare item! It's an addiction, and I have to come to terms with it. Maybe time for 12 steps? Na, I'm gonna play some more Destiny!
I will say, however, that charging $35 for content that is ALREADY ON THE DISC is something that enrages me. The only reason I purchased the DLC is because I got the game for $10 after a few trade-ins.
