A Few Words on Destiny
Like many people, I have a complicated relationship with Destiny. The first couple weeks were a blast playing alongside my cousin in the missions and strikes while also comparing loot and shooting into the void on nothingness that was the infamous "loot cave". But that all soon fell apart and after seeing the repetitious gameplay for what it truly was: repetitious-as-fuck gameplay, I was done with it. To me this game is an anomaly. I had put over 100 hours into Destiny when I stopped and don't expect to ever go back. The shooting was the best shooting I had experienced in a long time and goddamn if Destiny isn't a beautiful game to behold but the sheer lack of content and monotony that comes with replaying mission after mission and strike after strike just left me feeling empty at the end of the day. Also, don't even get me started on the convoluted Light system that dominates the end-game. Destiny is a game with a disgusting amount of potential. Too bad it was all squandered during development.
